Try this at Home or School

This is a simple experiment to test the absorption characteristics of greenhouse gases, and it looks like something that can be tried at home, using CO2 gas for example from a CO2 bicycle pump. If there are teachers out there reading this, I think this certainly can be done at a school. Of course you need to compare with normal air, just as described.

There are a lot more experiments and information about climate at the ESPERE Climate Encyclopedia. Highly recommended.

  1. If you understood spectroscopy, you would know that 15 micron IR cannot pass through glass. The systematic errors in this demo boggle the mind.
