Save Earth Presentation Transcript

  • 1. “ Save The Earth ”
  • 2. Did You Know?
    • Since The Year 1800 Till Date,
    • Average Temperature On Earth
    • Has Increased By 0.74° Celsius...
    According To Scientists, It Will Further Increase By 1.8° to 4° Celsius In Next 50 Years… Reason : Global Warming!
  • 3.
    • Most Influential Greenhouse Gases are:
        • Carbon dioxide(CO 2 )
        • Methane(CH 4 )
        • Nitrous Oxide(N 2 O)
        • Chloroflurocarbons(CFCs)
    Global Warming occurs due to a phenomenon called The Greenhouse Effect. It is caused by Greenhouse Gases.
  • 4. Solar radiation passes through atmosphere Half of the solar radiation is absorbed by the Earth's Surface Some of The solar radiation is reflected by atmosphere & Earth's surface Radiation is converted to infrared radiation & left back into atmosphere Some of Infrared Radiation passes through the atmosphere out into Space. Some of the infrared radiation is absorbed by Greenhouse Gasses
  • 5.
    • While, Greenhouse Effect, to some extent,
    • is crucial for life on Earth, it’s current excess
    • growth due to man made factors is creating
    • imbalance in natural processes on large scale.
    • The excessive heat trapped due to expanded
    • Greenhouse effect is melting ice glaciers &
    • icecaps in Antarctica, Arctic, Mountains such as
    • Alps & Himalayas, & other parts of world,
    • such as Alaska & Siberia.
    • 40% of Population takes supply of Fresh Water
    • from resources created by melting of ice, by way
    • of lakes & rivers like Ganga. But excessive
    • melting of ice at current rate will destroy these
    • sources & all this population will face lack of
    • water.
    This Presentation is brought to you in the series “ Countdown To Copenhagen ”
  • 6.
    • In 20 th Century, because of excess greenhouse
    • effect, sea level increased by 10 to 20 cm.
    • It is expected that,
    • it will further increase by 18 to 59 cm
    • by the year 2100.
    • Even if we go by the least estimate, at current
    • rate, by the year 2100, some island nations such
    • as Maldives, some sea shore nations such as
    • Bangladesh, Netherlands & cities like Kolkata,
    • Shanghai, San Francisco, etc will go completely
    • under water.

  • 7.
    • In contrast, there will be more droughts in some areas, due to changed pattern of rains. There will be desertification of more & more area...
    • There will be more forest fires…
    • As a result of changed pattern of rains, droughts & floods, agricultural production will go down, while the population is estimated to go up in coming years, resulting into big problem of hunger...
    • & that is not all... Due to floods & other natural irregularities, there will also be spread of diseases...
    This Presentation is brought to you in the series “ Countdown To Copenhagen ”
  • 8.
    • There are 3 Main Causes… 1. Industrialization
    • & Advancement in Technology & other fields,
    • 2. Deforestation & 3. Profiteering.
    • Industrialization & Advancement in Technology & other fields positively contributes to Global Warming by injecting huge Carbon Dioxide & other pollutants into the climate.
    • Deforestation contributes to global warming by not absorbing Carbon Dioxide from climate.
    • Profiteering is the main reason why man does all the things which lead to global warming.
    Why will this be happening to us? This Presentation is brought to you in the series “ Countdown To Copenhagen ”
  • 9.
    • all these things are about the year 2100,
    • why should I think & worry about it right now?
    • Or
    • these are just estimates, it wont happen in reality…
    Are you still thinking… Think Again… The Climate Change Has Already Started Haunting us… This Presentation is brought to you in the series “ Countdown To Copenhagen ”
