WHICH HUMAN ACTIVITIES CONTRIBUTE THE MOST GREEN HOUSE TO THE ATMOSPHERE?

The burning of fossil fuels – primarily coal, oil, and natural gas – currently accounts for between 70-90 % of all human emissions of carbon dioxide, which is a major greenhouse gas. Fossil fuels are used for transportation, manufacturing, heating, cooling, electricity generation, and other applications. The remainder of the carbon dioxide emissions comes from human land use activities such as ranching, agriculture, and the clearing and degradation of forests. Other primary sources of greenhouse gases include the production and transport of fossil fuels, agricultural activities, waste management, and industrial processes.
