JUST LIKE A GLASS BOWL - Radiation from the sun would be reflected out into space, but with more greenhouse gases in the atmosphere some radiated heat is absorbed and re-emitted back to earth just as if we lived in a greenhouse. The color green is now associated with being environmentally friendly. Coincidentally, green politicians are working to cool planet earth to reduce global warming.
Green-washing is where a government, organisation, business or individual person employs climate or environmental speak to make themselves appear environmentally friendly. Where being 'Green' or 'Eco' may:
1. Assist political candidates at election time,
2. Help businesses to appeal to conservation minded shoppers, or
3. Shine a favorable media spotlight on persons in the limelight, to appeal to audiences.
The term applies to misuse of the word, as in seeking to align with all things 'green,' but actually not conducting oneself wholeheartedly in 'green' terms. Hence, there is an element of deception or even fraud involved, especially when seeking investments from environmentally conscious investors.
Giving a project the "green light" means letting it go ahead, again, nothing to do with 'greenwashing.'

LUNG CANCER - Fumes and particulates from car exhausts kills us slowly when we burn it and release the carcinogens into the atmosphere to create smogs. Electric vehicles don't have exhaust pipes and dedicated smart service stations can be used to load level between solar and wind generated, distributed electricity.
