English term or phrase: greenhouse effect
Definition from
An increase in temperature caused when incoming solar radiation is passed but outgoing thermal radiation is blocked by the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide and water vapor are two of the major gases responsible for this effect.

Example sentence(s):
  • Without the greenhouse effect life on this planet would probably not exist as the average temperature of the Earth would be a chilly -18° Celsius, rather than the present 15° Celsius.
  • The earth has a natural greenhouse effect due to trace amounts of H20 and CO2 that naturally occur. The enhanced greenhouse effect refers to the augmentation of these natural gases by human activities. Greenhouse Effect

Definition from Wikipedia:
Efek rumah kaca ialah proses pemanasan permukaan suatu benda langit (terutama planet atau satelit) yang disebabkan oleh komposisi dan keadaan atmosfernya.

Example sentence(s):
  • Akibatnya energi panas yang seharusnya lepas keangkasa (stratosfer) menjadi terpancar kembali ke permukaan bumi (troposfer) atau adanya energi panas tambahan kembali lagi ke bumi dalam kurun waktu yang cukup lama, sehingga lebih dari dari kondisi normal, inilah efek rumah kaca berlebihan karena komposisi lapisan gas rumah kaca di atmosfer terganggu, akibatnya memicu naiknya suhu rata-rata dipermukaan bumi maka terjadilah pemanasan global. - A.R. As-syakur  
  • Ketika udara Jakarta semakin panas, banyak orang, komentator, pengamat, atau yang disebut pakar mengatakan bahwa hal ini akibat dari pemanasan global yang mengakibatkan terjadinya efek rumah kaca. - Pertamina
