Easy Explanation of the Greenhouse Effect

The greenhouse effect is all about Infrared Radiation (IR). It is the ‘heat’ that results from sunlight striking the surface of the planet. As the heat (IR) radiates away from the surface, it interacts with the large molecules present in the atmosphere. Water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane and several other significant gases are examples of such. This interaction slows down the escape of IR out into space. To visualize this, watch the following five second clip that repeats:
