How has the greenhouse effect been improved?

Unfortunately the enhanced greenhouse effect has not improved. Carbon dioxide and methane levels are continuing to rise, with the rise in carbon dioxide levels actually rising at an exponential rate. The one small piece of good news is that methane levels are currently rising at a much slower rate than they had been. There is hope that we can also slow the rise in the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide, but only if we as individuals do more, and our governments develop the political courage to take the action they know must sooner or later be taken.
