About other GHGs

Carbon dioxide tends to take all the headlines relating to greenhouse gases. After carbon dioxide comes methane and nitrous oxide, with few people giving much thought to the contribution of other greenhouse gases to climate change.

Though their concentrations are tiny compared to carbon dioxide, concentrations of many of these other greenhouse gases are increasing rapidly.

When this is combined with the fact that many are also extremely powerful greenhouse gases, with residence times in our atmosphere of hundreds or even thousands of years then it becomes clear that they should be included in any discussion of greenhouse gases.
