  • 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

  • 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
