New Gas is 7000 times more powerful than CO2 2

A new gas has been discovered effecting the global warming, which is 7,000 times more powerful than CO2.

Scientists from the University of Toronto discovered that perfluorotributylamine (PFTBA), can have a tremendous impact on the warming of the Earth.



The gas has been in used by the electrical industry since 1950s.

The levels of PFTBA in the atmosphere are relatively small compared to CO2, but its potential to warm the Earth is great.
