There is widespread concern that gas emissions resulting from the activities of people (e.g. transport, industrial processes, waste emissions and agriculture) have led to increased temperatures worldwide. This has been termed the greenhouse effect, or enhanced greenhouse effect. The gases involved, namely carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, perfluorocarbons, among others, have been called greenhouse gases.
Nationally, in 1994-95, some 56% of greenhouse gas emissions were induced (or caused) by goods and services used by households (Energy and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Accounts, Australia 1992-93 to 1997-98 (Cat. no. 4604).
