Acid rain
2 of 10
Something which cannot be replaced once it is used up
Non-renewable
3 of 10
The trapping of infrared radiation from the Sun as a result of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide and methane, in the Earth’s atmosphere. The greenhouse effect maintains the surface of the Earth at a temperature suitable for life.
Greenhouse effect
4 of 10
The process by which excessive nutrients in water lead to very fast plant growth. When the plants die they are decomposed and this uses up a lot of oxygen so the water can no longer sustain animal life
Eutrophication

Warming of the Earth due to greenhouse gases in the atmosphere trapping infrared radiation from the surface.
Global warming
