Diesel Advertising for Global Warming Their advertising their summer clothes & Showing that global warming is happening. The penguins symbolize the ice has melted at their homes.
FACTS <ul><li>Our earth has already started to show signs of world wide climate change. </li></ul><ul><li>The average temperatures have climbed 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit around the world since 1800 </li></ul><ul><li>The rate of warming is increasing. The 20 th centuries last 2 decades were the hottest in 400 hundred years and possibly the warmest for several millennia </li></ul>
This advertisement from Diesel shows that the artic poles have melted and sea level has risen and flooded New York City. Again Diesel is advertising summer clothes.
Facts <ul><li>Humans are pouring carbon dioxide into the atmosphere much faster than plants and oceans can absorb it. </li></ul><ul><li>These gases persist in the atmosphere for years, meaning that even such emissions were eliminated today, it would not immediately stop global warming </li></ul>
This advertisement from Diesel shows that there is climate conditions in China. It shows that the Great Wall of China is covered in sand which is probably caused by strong winds. Again Diesel is advertising summer clothes.
This picture has some words about things that are causing global warming and what we need to stop global warming.
Facts <ul><li>Industrialization, deforestation, and pollution have greatly increased atmospheric concentrations of water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, and nitros oxide, all the greenhouse gases that help trap heat near Earth’s surface. </li></ul><ul><li>Human-caused global warming is often called anthropogenic climate change. </li></ul>
This advertisement by Diesel shows Mount Rushmore being covered by a beach. There's palm trees growing. There's people surfing in the ocean.
What could Happen? <ul><li>Glaciers around the world could melt, causing sea levels to rise while creating water shortage in regions dependent on runoff for fresh water. </li></ul><ul><li>Strong hurricanes, droughts, heat waves, wild fires, and other natural disasters may become commonplace in many parts of the world. </li></ul><ul><li>The growth of desserts may also cause food shortage in many places. </li></ul>
Arctic sea ice is declining and the lives of polar bears, who depend on ice in search of food, are threatened. Do you care?

Animals. <ul><li>Now scientists believe that global warming affects hibernating animals, causing them to wake up earlier. While this may seem a trivial concern, it is in fact a legitimate environmental problem. The shortened hibernation period could actually lead to significant declines in the populations of several species </li></ul><ul><li>Several species, including marmots, chipmunks, and brown bears, have all been seen to either reduce their hibernation period or not hibernate at all. This can cause starvation and, possibly, increased numbers of some animals being eaten by predators. </li></ul><ul><li>Many species of animals may face extinction. </li></ul>
Global warming and animals. <ul><li>Marmots end their hibernations about three weeks earlier now compared to 30 years ago. </li></ul><ul><li>Polar bears today are thinner and less healthy than those of 20 years ago. </li></ul><ul><li>Many fish species are moving northward in search of cooler waters. </li></ul><ul><li>The red fox is spreading northward in response to a warmer climate </li></ul><ul><li>Climate change could lead to the extinction of many animals including migratory birds </li></ul><ul><li>Melting ice, spreading deserts and the impact of warm seas on the sex of turtles are among threats identified. </li></ul><ul><li>While many species have been able to adapt to new conditions simply by moving their ranges further towards the poles, the study warns that this option is not available to other animals, such as polar bears and seals whose habitat is disappearing rapidly with the melting of Arctic sea ice. </li></ul><ul><li>Sea level rise destroying beach nesting sites for sea turtles - for example, nearly a third of beaches used by turtles in the Caribbean would be lost with the rise anticipated during this century, and seals and wading birds also face destruction of their coastal habitats </li></ul><ul><li>Warmer seas could lead to some turtle species becoming entirely female, as water temperature strongly affects the sex ratio of hatchlings </li></ul>
Obama is pledging to make America more energy independent and to also slash carbon emissions by focusing on alternative sources such as wind and solar. He is also vowing to work more cooperatively with other nations on climate change. Obama will invest $15 billion each year to catalyze private sector efforts to build a clean energy future. We will invest in solar power, wind power, and next generation biofuels. We will tap nuclear power, while making sure it’s safe. And we will develop clean coal technologies.
<ul><li>Join the 1,274,265 supporters of the Stop Global Warming Virtual March, and become part of the movement to demand our leaders freeze and reduce carbon dioxide emissions now. </li></ul><ul><li>We are all contributors to global warming and we all need to be part of the solution. </li></ul>
