  • 3. What is Global Warming slide 1
    • Global warming is when the earth heats up (the temperature rises). It happens when greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, water vapor, nitrous oxide, and methane) trap heat and light from the sun in the earth’s atmosphere, which increases the temperature. This hurts many people, animals, and plants. Many cannot take the change, so they die.
  • 4. What is Global Warming slide 2
    • According to Al Gore in his movie An Inconvenient Truth , he says that the earths atmosphere is so vulnerable to global warming because it is so thin.
    • The good news it that he seems to think that it is thin enough that we can change global warming.
  • 5. What is Global Warming slide 3 The Greenhouse effect
