Sources of Greenhouse Gases
How much warming could be caused by each of the gases that human activities release? Find out here!
Sources, Sinks and Concentrations of Greenhouse Gases
Greenhouse gases are cycled through the various components that make up the global biogeochemical system. This acticle discusses these gases as being part of a dynamic equilibrium that can be easily disturbed.
Global Warming Potentials
Global warming potentials (GWPs) are used to compare the abilities of different greenhouse gases to trap heat in the atmosphere
Climate Change: Global Warming Potentials
Global Warming Potentials are one type of simplified index based upon radiative properties that can be used to estimate the potential future impacts of emissions of different gases upon the climate system in a relative sense.
Here is a quick resource for calculating GWP.
Greenhouse Gas Inventory Data
United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has compiled data from the most recently submitted information, covering the period from 1990 to 2004.
Image: Greenhouse Gas by Sector
This figure shows the relative fraction of man-made greenhouse gases coming from each of eight categories of sources, as estimated by the Emission Database for Global Atmospheric Research
Energy Information Administration
The Emissions of Greenhouse Gases, the fourteenth annual report, presents the Energy Information Administration's latest estimates of emissions for carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and other greenhouse gases.

High Global Warming Potential Gases
These gases, referred to as high global warming potential gases (high GWPs) are from 140-23,900 times more potent than CO2 in terms of their capabilities to trap heat in the atmosphere.
