  • GLOBAL WARMING

    1. 1. GLOBAL WARMING
    2. 2. What is global warming? GLOBAL WARMING is the increase of the Earth’s average surface temperature due to a build-up of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
    3. 3. How Global Warming Works Greenhouse gases Fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas) Carbon Dioxide (CO 2 )
    4. 4. CAUSES OF GLOBAL WARMING
    5. 5. Pollution from coal, natural gas, and oil
    6. 6. CO 2 from airplanes & vehicles
    7. 7. POPULATION INCREASE
    8. 8. DEFORESTATION
    9. 9. Increased CO 2 results in
    10. 10. Greenhouse Effect
    11. 11. The Sun’s energy passes through the car’s windshield. This energy (heat) is trapped inside the car and cannot pass back through the windshield, causing the inside of the car to warm up. Example of the Greenhouse Effect
    12. 13. Melting of glaciers
    13. 14. Polar Bear Extinction
    14. 15. Warmer waters and more hurricanes
    15. 16. Increased probability and intensity of droughts and heat waves
    16. 17. Increased Temperature
