Although the data show only a correlation between the carbon dioxide concentration and the global average temperature, scientists have other reasons to think that a rise in the carbon dioxide concentration actually causes a rise in the global average temperature. All of the following statements are true. Which statements lend support to the idea that carbon dioxide is a cause of planetary warming?

Check all that apply.

The answer is :

-Models of the greenhouse effect successfully predict the temperatures of Venus and Mars from their atmospheric carbon dioxide amounts.

-We understand the physical mechanism of the greenhouse effect, through which carbon dioxide can increase a planet's temperature.

-Models of Earth's climate that include recent increases in the carbon dioxide concentration match observed temperature increases better than those that do not include it.
