Assignment #10 1. What is the difference between the Greenhouse effect and the ENHANCED Greenhouse effect? How do each have an impact of the planet? The greenhouse effect is a naturally occurring process that warms the surface of the Earth. It is an important factor because, without this natural process, Earth would be freezing. The Sun’s energy is reflected back into space while the rest of the energy is consumed and re-radiated by greenhouse gases. These processes occur when the Sun’s energy enters the Earth’s atmosphere. Meanwhile, the enhanced greenhouse effect is the impact on the climate due to human activities, which causes an increase in concentrations of greenhouse gases. This disturbance has contributed to the unnatural increase in the global average surface temperatures. 2.

    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.
