Greenhouse Gas Equivalent Global Warming Potential

Some greenhouse gases can cause more damage than carbon dioxide. We compare them by converting them to their equivalent global warming potential over 100 years.

I was surprised to see just how bad other gases are.

What I wasn’t able to show in this was that different gases are active for different periods of time, if you think of a 50 year period instead 100 years, some can be even more damaging.
