Greenhouse effect

A discussion to reinforce learning and to counter misconceptions about the greenhouse effect. Many people wrongly think that the greenhouse effect occurs because there is a layer of greenhouse gases in the sky that act like a pane of glass in a greenhouse, trapping the heat that originally came as visible light from the Sun. This view is often reinforced by misleading animations and diagrams on the internet and diagrams in textbooks and elsewhere
