III. 忍び寄る危機|排出される温室効果ガス
The fact that CO2, a greenhouse gas, is increasing in the atmosphere has been observed through various measurements. These increases in greenhouse gas emissions are attributable to human activities and are regarded as a direct cause of global warming. 温室効果ガスであるCO2 が増加しているという事実は、様々な形で観測されている。この温室効果ガスの排出は、人類の活動によるものであり、地球温暖化の直接的な原因と考えられている。
