Q.  Where do the greenhouse gases come from?

a. Agriculture
b. Land-use change
c. Fosssil fuels
d. All the above


ANSWER: See Answer
 
Most of the emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) come primarily from burning fossil fuels (coal, hydrocarbon gas liquids, natural gas, and petroleum) for energy use and the major greenhouse gas is of course carbon dioxide (CO2) which comes from burning fossil fuels and land-use change.
But methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O), which mostly come from agriculture and waste, are also significant GHGs and shouldn't be discounted.
