Wikipedia

  1. gases

    Gas is one of the four fundamental states of matter – the others being solid, liquid, and plasma.A pure gas may be made up of individual atoms (e.g. a noble gas like neon), elemental molecules made from one type of atom (e.g. oxygen), or compound molecules made from a variety of atoms (e.g. carbon dioxide). A gas mixture, such as air, contains a variety of pure gases. What distinguishes a gas from liquids and solids is the vast separation of the individual gas particles. This separation usually makes a colourless gas invisible to the human observer. The gaseous state of matter occurs between the liquid and plasma states, the latter of which provides the upper temperature boundary for gases. Bounding the lower end of the temperature scale lie degenerative quantum gases which are gaining increasing attention. High-density atomic gases super-cooled to very low temperatures are classified by their statistical behavior as either Bose gases or Fermi gases. For a comprehensive listing of these exotic states of matter see list of states of matter.

  1. Gases

    The vapor state of matter; nonelastic fluids in which the molecules are in free movement and their mean positions far apart. Gases tend to expand indefinitely, to diffuse and mix readily with other gases, to have definite relations of volume, temperature, and pressure, and to condense or liquefy at low temperatures or under sufficient pressure.

  2. Pope Francis:

    It is true that there are other factors - such as volcanic activity, variations in the earth's orbit and axis, the solar cycle - yet a number of scientific studies indicate that most global warming in recent decades is due to the great concentration of greenhouse gases - carbon dioxide, methane, nitrogen oxides and others - released mainly as a result of human activity.

  3. Sophie Power:

    When the gases pass through our filter there's a chemical reaction that absorbs them into our filter.

  4. Gavin Schmidt:

    While the ranking of individual years can be affected by chaotic weather patterns, the long-term trends are attributable to drivers of climate change that right now are dominated by human emissions of greenhouse gases, the data shows quite clearly that it's the greenhouse gas trends that are responsible for the majority of the trends.

  5. Kyle Clem:

    So this thing started in the central tropical South Pacific, get some warming, the pattern continues for 40 years -- then you just have added heat being pumped into it from increasing greenhouse gases, that's what has allowed the Blob to reach such extreme rates of warming... which is why we're seeing a drought that is so unprecedented.
