CO2 is the most dominant greenhouse gas. According to US’s Environment Protection Agency (EPA)’s definition:
“Gases that trap heat in the atmosphere are called greenhouse gases.”
Carbon dioxide enters the atmosphere through burning fossil fuels (coal, natural gas, and oil), solid waste, trees and wood products, and also as a result of certain chemical reactions (e.g., manufacture of cement).
