  1. 1. Yoshia Kashima (representative of Tonga)Edit P. Anna Paddon, Nanaimo, BC, Canada. Sept 06, 2012. Yoshia Kashima (representative of Tonga)
  2. 2. The impact of global warming to Tonga• The sea level is rising 15.1 mm annually along Tonga’s coast line. (2001)• Scientists say if global warming goes on, after ten years, the sea level will rise 30.5mm a year and over 40mm a year over 20 years’.
  3. 3. The impact of Global Warming The main cause of Global Warming is orbital eccentricities of Earth and variations in the Suns output. THE BENEFIT OF INTERNATIONAL AID. "Its ironic that a culture [Mayans] so obsessed with keeping track of celestial movements may have met their demise because of a 206- year cycle," he said. The cycle continues to the present, which happens to fall into about the middle of the 206-year period,"Global Warming" is something that has been happening for a long time.The temperature of the earth has been increasing more or less continuously Hodell said. Even a severe drought today, however,since the time of the cave man. Approximately 18,000 years ago the earth isnt likely to have the same impact on the culture as inbegan a gradual process of warming up after more than 100,000 years of IceAges. Much of North America, Europe, and Asia lay buried beneath great ancient times.sheets of glacial ice. By about 15,000 years ago the earth had warmed Brenner noted North Korea currently is suffering ansufficiently to halt the advance of glaciers, and sea levels worldwide beganto rise. By 8,000 years ago the land bridge across the Bering Strait was extreme drought, but the country has the benefit ofdrowned, cutting off the migration of men and animals to North America. international aid.Since the end of the Ice Age, Earths temperature has risen approximately Global Warming Test2 -P1252719384vFGfs Sept 09 201216 degrees F and sea levels have risen a total of 300 feet! Forests have http://www.geocraft.com/WVFossils/GlobWarmTest/Q1.htmlreturned where once there was only ice.

  4. 4. Effect on agriculture• Agriculture makes up 38 percent of Tonga’s GDP.• The rise of sea level will mainly affect the southern part of Tonga where the land, below or at sea level, is the most important agricultural area.• Tongas main Agricultural products are squash, coconuts, bananas, vanilla beans, cocoa, coffee, ginger and black pepper which are grown for export.
  5. 5. Map of Tonga
  6. 6. Effects on agriculture• Tonga’s income from the agricultural industry comes mainly from exporting those food products• Agricultural exports makes up two-thirds of Tonga’s total exports.• If Tonga loses this part of land to the sea, 60 percent of the export income will be taken away.
  7. 7. Effect on marine life• Also there will be a serious problem for marine life.• The second most important product for export is fish.• The rise of water temperature will cause the fish to leave Tonga’s economic zone to find a suitable temperature for them to live in.• Fishermen will lose their jobs if the fish leave Tonga’s economic zone.
  8. 8. Effect on tourism• Tourism is one of the industries that sustains Tongas economy.• Tonga is a popular holiday resort during summer, especially for Asians.Tourists enjoy diving, seeing the coral, fishing, swimming, and all the water adventures around Tonga.• All the events that are mentioned above will be affected by global warming.
  9. 9. Effect on tourism• Especially Coral reefs will be affected by the rise of water temperature.• If the coral are destroyed, Tonga will lose the special feature which attract tourists.• The loss of tourists will be a heavy blow to Tonga’s economy.
  10. 10. To prevent the effects to agricultural area• To prevent the effect to agricultural areas, Tonga is planning to build breakwaters to stop the crops getting drowned in future.• Unfortunately it requires a large amount of money to build those facilities.• Tonga is going to appeal to developed countries to get economic aid and material support.
  11. 11. Prevent the rise of water temperature Tonga does not have any means to prevent the rise of water temperature.• Tonga depends on the developed countries which are causing the global warming to stop the rise of water temperature.
