Global warming USA

  1. 1. Saad Al-Mana<br />Global Warming USA<br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. global warming: –nounincrease in the earth's average atmospheric temperature that causes corresponding changes in climate and that may result from the greenhouse effect.<br />
  4. 4. Global Warming Facts<br />An Increase in the average temp of Earth’s near surface atmosphere and ocean<br />Earth’s Average temp increased 0.18*c in the past couple of decades <br />The Arctic areas such as the North and South pole are the most affected and the areas near the line of tropical are the least affected <br />The Ice Caps in the world are melting, and as they are melting the sea level is increasing yet some islands are shrinking and vanishing<br />With less pollution there is a chance of decreasing or stopping the global warming happening <br />
  5. 5.
  6. 6. Main Cause of Global Warming<br />Green House Gases<br />Fossil Fuel <br />Deforestation<br />Burning Carbon Dioxide<br />Harmful Smoke <br />Sprays<br />
  7. 7.
  8. 8. Ozone Layer<br />It’s a layer of Earth’s atmosphere that contain high concentration of Ozone<br />It absorbs 97-99% of the sun light and pressure<br />The earth would completely be burned without the Ozone layer<br />The ozone layer can be recovered from the opening of it by reducing pollution<br />The ozone layer is 13-40 km above earth’s surface <br />

  14. 14. Quotes<br />As water temperatures continue to rise, researchers say rainbow trout, "already at the southern limits” of their temperature ranges in the Appalachian mountains, could disappear there over the next century. [Softpedia]<br />Say Goodbye to Ski Vacations
Slopes on the East Coast last year closed months ahead of time due to warmer weather, some losing as much as a third of their season. [Washington Post]<br />Say Goodbye to That Snorkeling Vacation
Theelkhorn coral which used to line the floor of the Caribbean are nearly gone, “victims of pollution, warmer water and acidification from the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide seeping into oceans.” [Denver Post]<br />Say Goodbye to Meadows of Wildflowers
Scientists think global warming could wipe out a fifth of the wildflower species in the western United States. They’ll be replaced by dominant grasses. [National Wildlife Federation]<br />

  16. 16. Environment Affect<br /> The main affect on the environment is the flow of the fresh water to the world’s ocean. So basically the worlds freshwater is very low in amount, other that the fact that the freshwater is flowing to the ocean. As the temp increase, the snow and ice in mountains melt to the ocean. Another example is that the floods of rain drives the freshwater is lakes and rivers to the ocean.<br />
  17. 17.
  18. 18. Example<br /> USA is facing two main affects on the freshwater loss from the two famous states of Mississippi and Montana.<br />1. Mississippi is facing a lot of floods from rain that is causing the city to almost flood the entire freshwater to the ocean and polluted areas in 1993. <br />2. Montana is getting all of its freshwater snow in mountains melt to the ocean and polluted areas<br />

  20. 20. Economic Affect<br /> Other than the environmental affects stated previously, the economy also has a great impact from the global warming. First, some forest areas are getting dry and any sparkle can cause a massive wildfire within that area with serious destruction. Second, the freshwater is running low, so the coast of freshwater and water bills is getting higher.<br />
  21. 21.
  22. 22. Example<br /> USA’s two main concerns economically towards the global warming affects is the destructive wild fires heading to the cities and the loss of freshwater to the ocean <br />1.L.A. California faced a Wildfire from a thrown cigarette at a bush from the side of the 241 Toll Road and Santiago Canyon, it caused some destruction to the background of the scene<br />2. Phoenix gets more than half of its freshwater from Colorado river which has been facing a drought for 11 years now, if the river continues with the drought it will eventually dry out.<br />
  23. 23.
  24. 24. Social Affect<br /> The last main impact to the USA from the major global warming is the social affect between and in the people. Social affects include hunger and food shortage in the session of the floods. Another affect to the social life would be the destruction of homes in the region of the wildfires.<br />
  25. 25.
  26. 26. Example<br /> USA’s top priority is fixing and solving the problem that people are facing with the floods and wildfire in their homes.<br />1. Miami faced massive flood waves in 2005 that flooded a lot of homes and resorts close to the sea shore.<br />2. Florida faced a usual great wildfire in 2010 that started in a forest and made its way to the city by destructing more that 20 buildings <br />

  28. 28. How To Stop Global Warming<br /> Three simple rules:<br /> REDUSE, REUSE, RECYCLE<br /> Every little thing helps:<br />Turn off the water while not in use/ transport by human energy or public transportation instead of carpooling/ use recycled papers/ print back to back/ cancel junk mail-email instead of mailing/ use your own shopping bag/ plant a tree instead of building a pool/ use as little water as you can to hygiene/ turn off any electric device not in use/ switch to green environmental energy<br />
  29. 29.
  30. 30. REDUSE: reduce any harmful energy conserver, mainly vehicles and electric devices. Use less water when showering or planting or washing. Cancel junk mail and use less emails<br /> REUSE: reuse any material that is capable of being processed again without recycling, reuse any bags for transporting objects, reuse glass food tools that are capable of being reused<br /> RECYCLE: recycle any materials or objects that are able to be crushed and condensed to its original form to be reused, give any paper to a recycling factory, and never throw out any object before making sure that its unrecyclable<br />
