  • 1. Environmental Issue “Global Warming” by: Abdulla AlBlooshiLSEC N101 Instructor:Academic Communication Mr. Hedley Butterfie
  • 2. Agenda• Introduction• Causes• Consequences• Possible solutions• Global Warming reduction by: – Local and national government – Corporations – Organizations (NGOs) – Private individuals• Recommendation• Conclusion• References
  • 3. Introduction• What is Global Warming? – Global warming • increase in average air and water temperatures • due in part to the greenhouse effect • a natural phenomenon • human activities have significantly amplified – Global warming is • Climate Change
  • 4. Causes• Major contributors are human activities• Excessive use of Non-Renewable Energy – producing gases from greenhouse• Two groups influencing causes – Natural causes – Manmade causes
  • 5. Natural Causes• Methane gas release from – Wetlands – Artic tundra• Greenhouse-trapping gases – Heating the atmosphere of the Earth – Undergoing cycle of climate change
  • 6. Manmade Causes• Greenhouse Effect• Pollution• Burning fossil fuels (oil and coal)• Factory production of plastics• Deforestation
  • 7. CausesSource: <http://macro.lsu.edu/STSC/Downloads/globalwarming.ppt>
  • 8. ConsequencesSource: <http://www.emeraldinsight.com/content_images/fig/0830210606005.png>
  • 9. Main ConsequencesSource: <http://www.emeraldinsight.com/content_images/fig/3690640204004.png>
  • 10. Consequences• Rising air and water temperatures• Rising sea levels and changes in ocean currents• Increased extreme weather events• Rapidly melting glaciers• Changes in animal migration
  • 11. Illustration Example: ConsequencesSource: <http://thereaganwing.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/group-disaster.jpg; http://img.modernghana.com/images/content3/240x_mg_hills_earthquake_disaster.jpg;http://www.cosmosmagazine.com/files/imagecache/news/files/news/20091201_polar_bear.jpg;http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/interactive/2009/11/world/explainer.apocalypse/media/hrzgal.dayaftertom.fox.jpg>
  • 12. Possible Solutions• Wind Power• Solar Power• Transportation: Fuel-Efficiency
  • 13. Roles and Responsibilities• Local and national government – Legislation for air, water and soil quality – Participation at global, regional, national cooperation – Targets are yearly – Government department – Regulations, laws, procedures, and policies
  • 14. Roles and Responsibilities• Corporations – Stop production of global warming favoring products – Follow best practices – Face fines and shut down – Favoring global warming should be fined and shut down. – Follow and abide with acts • established to cool global environment
  • 15. Roles and Responsibilities• Organizations (NGOs) – Working towards course of action – Requiring political acceptability – Having solutions and visions. – Conducting research and studies – Plan for immediate actions
  • 16. Roles and Responsibilities• Private individuals – Avoiding energy wasting – Using renewable sources – Turning off unwanted devices or machines – Using low energy consuming products – Recycling and reusing
  • 17. Roles and Responsibilities• Private individuals – Eating organic foods – Using public transportation, walk or cycle – Using renewable energies and clean power – Increasing in the number of plants at each household
  • 18. Recommendation• Clean Air Act• Clean Water Act• Clean Land Act• Trade Plan• Green building and living• Oil and gas business• Awareness
  • 19. Conclusion• Global warming serious threat to – Earth – Humans – Animals – Plants• Conserving use of harmful activities• Minimizing production of CO2
  • 20. Conclusion• Natural and manmade causes are – Harming and increasing the consequences• Possible solutions available• Slowing down the effects is not effective• Cooling the planet is the most effective
