  • 1.  GLOBALWARMING BY: TEYLA TURKERI
  • 2. What is GlobalWarming  Global Warming refers to the increase the the Earth’s temperature.  The Earth’s temperature has increased approximately 1.33 degrees Fahrenheit over the last century.  Predictions have been made that the Earth could increase anywhere from 3- 9 more degrees over the next century.  The continued increase in the Earth’s temperature will affect the global climates.
  • 3. CAUSES OF GLOBALWARMING  Global Warming is caused by the build-up of greenhouse gases in the the atmosphere.  The greenhouse gases are made from carbon dioxide and other pollution that builds in the atmosphere.  The major polluter of carbon dioxide is coal burning power plants.  Other causes are fossil fuel burning transportation and machines. Such as cars, trucks, planes, etc.

  • 5. EFFECTS OF GLOBALWARMING  Disease: As the Earth’s temperature increases, warmer climates will give way to disease carrying mosquitoes.  Droughts: Increase temperatures will also bring more droughts to already arid regions, such as Africa.  Polar Ice Caps: The polar ice caps are melting and will continue to melt. The ice caps are very important because they deflect the sun’s rays. However, with less ice, more heat is absorbed. Melting ice also affects the levels of the oceans, which will affect the ocean’s currents and the heating of the Eastern side of North America and also Europe.
  • 6. EFFECTS OF GLOBALWARMING CONTINUED  With water absorbing more heat due to lacking polar ice caps, we can expect more hurricanes of large magnitude, such as Hurricane Katrina.  Global Warming will also have a major impact on ecosystems. For example, due to melting ice, polar bears are forced to walk many more miles to find food and are often drowning in the process.  Due to the chance of frequent natural disasters, more money will be spent to repair damages.

  • 8. THINGSWE CAN DOTO HELP FIGHT GLOBALWARMING  We can help fight global warming by being efficient.  Don’t waste electricity: Turn off lights that you are not using, don’t turn the A/C on as low, use compact fluorescent bulbs, buy energy efficient appliances.  Fuel efficient vehicles: Buy fuel efficient vehicles, such as a hybrid or electric vehicle. Opt to carpool or take a bus. If it is a nice day, choose to walk or ride a bike to your destination.  Recycle: Recycling proper materials will help reduce emissions released in creating new items.
