Greenhouse Gas Emissions by the Economic Sector
Three main factors determine each of these gases effect on climate change: How much is in the atmosphere. Larger emissions of greenhouse gases lead to higher concentrations in the atmosphere How strongly do they impact the atmosphere. Some gases are more effective than others at making the planet warmer and "thickening the Earth's blanket." How long do the stay in the atmosphere. Each of these gases can remain in the atmosphere for different amounts of time, ranging from a few years to thousands of years.
Greenhouse gases trap heat and make the planet warmer. Human activities are responsible for almost all of the increase in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere over the last 150 years. The largest source of greenhouse gas emissions from human activities in the United States is from burning fossil fuels for electricity, heat, and transportation. Transportation being the the largest source of all at 25%.
Emissions and Trends
Since 1990, gross U.S. greenhouse gas emissions have increased by 3.7 percent. From year to year, emissions can rise and fall due to changes in the economy, the price of fuel, and other factors. In 2018, U.S. greenhouse gas emissions increased compared to 2017 levels. The increase in CO2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion was a result of multiple factors, including increased energy use due to greater heating and cooling needs due to a colder winter and hotter summer in 2019 compared to 2018.
Why You Should Care
Intercept's patented packaging will react with these gases that play a part in causing your silver & jewelry to tarnish and corrode.

On the road we're on, greenhouse gases are showing no sign of slowing down as the population grows and more people are letting these gases in the air by driving their automobiles and countless other things that increase the abundance of these gases. Is there really any reason to wait when it comes to protecting your valuables from the 'invisible enemy?'
There are products in aerosol cans that claim to protect your valuables from tarnish and corrosion, they actually release more of those unwanted gases in the atmosphere.
