    • 1. Climate Changes Due To Global Warming: A Global Issue
    • 2. The Main Culprits For Global Warming Water Vapour (H2O) Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Methane (CH4) Ozone (O3)
    • 3. Some Facts • Human population x 4 in 100 years • It took 10000 generations of human beings to reach 2 B • We have tripled that in less that one lifetime
    • 4. Temperature goes up melting ice caps • Before the warming: Kilimanjaro, 1970 • After the warming: Kilimanjaro, 2000
    • 5. Temperature goes up melting ice caps • Before the warming: Nepal, 1978 • After the warming: Nepal, 2004
    • 6. Temperature goes up melting ice caps • Even more obvious from space, this pictures of the North Polar cap from NASA show a melting of 25% in 25 years:
    • 7. Graphical Data • At the end of 2002, the concentration of carbon dioxide was just above 370ppm. • This is probably the highest in at least 400,000 years
    • 8. Graphical Data- Carbon Footprint • Every country bears its share of responsibility, The USA being number one. QuickTime™ and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. Source: Footprint Network
    • 9. Some Facts:• The number of category 4 and 5 hurricanes has almost doubled in the last 30 years. • Malaria has spread to higher altitudes in places like the Colombian Andes, 7,000 feet above sea level. • The flow of ice from glaciers in Greenland has more than doubled over the past decade. • At least 279 species of plants and animals are already responding to global warming, moving closer to the poles.
    • 10. The Consequences of sticking to ‘Business As Usual” • Global sea levels could rise by more than 20 feet with the loss of shelf ice in Greenland and Antarctica, devastating coastal areas worldwide. • The arctic ocean could be ice free in summer by 2050. • Heat waves will be more frequent and more intense. • Droughts and wildfires will occur more often.
    • 11. We hope that you appreciate the effort made by- VEER AND PRAKASHITHA IX
