This will allow you to fully develop your understanding and see the interconnections between various elements. greenhouse effect climate change climate refugees carbon sink sustainability ecological footprint carrying capacity fair earthshare greenhouse gases (incl. ex.) greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions major GHG emitters fossil fuels reduction targets (incl. ex.) Kyoto protocol mitigation adaptation sea level rise Athabasca tar (oil) sands garbage recycling household hazardous waste incineration landfill waste diversion e-waste water consumption (incl ex.) water pollution wastewater waterborne diseases (incl. ex.) water shortage3. List five (5) actions that (i) individuals and (ii) government can (or are) taking to reduce GHG emissions. Consider your answer both nationally (i.e. Canada) and globally (i.e other countries around the world).4. List five (5) reasons that water will be in greater demand in the future.
