Climate change occurs when too much greenhouse gases are emitted and released into the air. Greenhouse gases include methane, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and many other forms of gases. The one that is released the most is carbon dioxide, which is emitted by humans and many other forms of life, meanwhile vehicles emit carbon monoxide with is a toxic chemical to living things in large amounts. To begin, there are a great variety of different vehicles in the markets. Most of them happen to be gasoline fueled vehicles. Although most of them are gasoline fueled, there are still many different vehicles and fuels. Gasoline vehicles are the vehicles that give off the most toxins and carbon monoxide.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
