Philippe Squarzoni’s graphic novel “Climate Changed” explores the greenhouse effect and its role in the deterioration of the Earth’s protective and reflective atmospheric layers. But what exactly causes a greenhouse effect and what is it? For these answers the link below seeks to clarify and define precisely what is meant by greenhouse gases and their effect on the Earth’s ozone. The article demonstrates, like Squarzoni’s novel, that “greenhouse gases from human activities are the most significant driver of observed climate change since the mid-20th century” (EPA). This report presents findings that outline a significant increase in emissions of major greenhouse gases as an inevitable outcome from humans’ drive to progress by using synthetic gases. Moreover, the report specifically centers on the United States’ concentrations of these gases in the atmosphere, and how emissions and gas levels have changed over time. The referenced article on the United States and “Climate Changed” which focuses on France, demonstrate that global warming and climate changes are a worldwide concern.
