Description: Good source for background information based on up to date and searchable articles on greenhouse gases and global warming. Very readable. Good information on each greenhouse gas including the "others""and some that are actually "cooling" gases that may be complicating the issue since they negate the affect that warming gases would have.

Reviewer: Ellen DeBacker 5 stars
Comments: Lots more here on site than appears at a glance. Nice to have current articles come up with a short description and graphic for each topic. Some of the graphs are hard to read or really know how they fit with the article, but they will enlarge when clicked on.
