Kyoto Protocol (KP)
Climate change concerns the rising of sea levels, desertification, loss of biodiversity, and the increasing intensity and frequency of extreme phenomena, such us hurricanes, storms, flood, and drought.
Global warming is the principle source of climate change. It consists of the increase in the average temperature of the Earth’s climate system.
Greenhouse Gases (GHGs)
GHGs are atmospheric gases. The more prevalent GHGs are carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O). The less prevalent are hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), and sulfur hexafluoride (SF6). The increase of their concentration in the atmosphere causes global warming.
Global Warming Potential (GWP)
GWP is an index measuring the effect of the differing times in which GHGs stay in the atmosphere and their capacity to absorb infrared radiation.
