    There is a colloquial term for global warming, which describes the effect of heat being produced in an enclosed space (within the atmosphere). Do you know the name for a glass building in which plants are grown which works on the same idea?

    We must try to......................the level of CO2 in the air. ( six letters - and the second letter is E )
    In the religion of Global Warming, the believers believe that CO2 levels must go up or go down?

    Yes. CO2 etc are sometimes referred to as "greenhouse gases", and the problems they cause as the "greenhouse effect".

    The problem is the amount of CO2 in the air. There is too much of it. If there is too much of something and you want to make the amount lower, what is the verb you would use?
