Be clean, be green

  1. 1. Be Clean, Be Green Leonardo Moreira dos Santos Franoly Aybar Contreras Cursos Extracurriculares Idiomas- UASD English- Level VII Profesor: Danilo Ozuna
  2. 2. Climate change is happening  Our Earth is warming. Earth's average temperature has risen by 1.4°F over the past century, and is projected to rise another 2 to 11.5°F over the next hundred years. Small changes in the average temperature of the planet can translate to large and potentially dangerous shifts in climate and weather.
  3. 3.  The evidence is clear. Rising global temperatures have been accompanied by changes in weather and climate. Many places have seen changes in rainfall, resulting in more floods, droughts, or intense rain, as well as more frequent and severe heat waves. The planet's oceans and glaciers have also experienced some big changes - oceans are warming and becoming more acidic, ice caps are melting, and sea levels are rising. As these and other changes become more pronounced in the coming decades, they will likely present challenges to our society and our environment.
  4. 4. Humans are largely responsible for recent climate change Over the past century, human activities have released large amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. The majority of greenhouse gases come from burning fossil fuels to produce energy, although deforestation, industrial processes, and some agricultural practices also emit gases into the atmosphere.
  5. 5. THE NATURAL GREENHOUSE EFFECT  Greenhouse gases act like a blanket around Earth, trapping energy in the atmosphere and causing it to warm. This phenomenon is called the greenhouse effect and is natural and necessary to support life on Earth. However, the buildup of greenhouse gases can change Earth's climate and result in dangerous effects to human health and welfare and to ecosystems.  The choices we make today will affect the amount of greenhouse gases we put in the atmosphere in the near future and for years to come.
  6. 6. We can make a difference!  You can take action. You can take steps at home, on the road, and in your office to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the risks associated with climate change. Many of these steps can save you money; some, such as walking or biking to work can even improve your health!
  7. 7.  The most effective way to reduce waste is to not create it in the first place. Making a new product requires a lot of materials and energy: raw materials must be extracted from the earth, and the product must be fabricated and then transported to wherever it will be sold.  Reduction and reuse are the most effective ways you can save natural resources, protect the environment, and save money. Reducing and Reusing
  8. 8. Benefits of Reducing and Reusing  Prevents pollution caused by reducing the need to harvest new raw materials;  Saves energy;  Reduces greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global climate change;  Helps sustain the environment for future generations;  Saves money;  Reduces the amount of waste that will need to be recycled or sent to landfills and incinerators;  Allows products to be used to their fullest extent.
  9. 9. Recycling is the process of collecting and processing materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and turning them into new products. Recycling can benefit your community and the environment. Recycling Basics
  10. 10. Benefits of Recycling Reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators; Conserves natural resources such as timber, water, and minerals; Prevents pollution caused by reducing the need to collect new raw materials; Saves energy; Reduces greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global climate change; Helps sustain the environment for future generations; Helps create new well-paying jobs in the recycling and manufacturing industries in the United States.
  11. 11. What You Can Do?  At home  At school  At work  On the go  In the community
