Global Warming

  1. 1. Global warming<br />It’s time for a change.<br />
  2. 2. What is global warming?<br />Greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, water vapor, nitrous oxide, and methane), trap heat and sunlight in the earth’s atmosphere, increasing the temperature.<br />
  3. 3. We should be treating, I think, the whole issue of climate change and global warming with a far greater degree of priority than I think is happening now.<br />~ Prince Charles<br />
  4. 4. The temperature rise caused by global warming has affected many species of animals in the arctic. <br />By the rate of rapid melting in the Arctic, some have estimated that the region could be completely ice free by 2040. <br />
  5. 5. Other effects include extreme weather events…<br />
  6. 6. What changed in the United States with Hurricane Katrina was a feeling that we have entered a period of consequences.~ Al Gore <br />
  7. 7. All across the world, in every kind of environment and region known to man, increasingly dangerous weather patterns and devastating storms are abruptly putting an end to the long-running debate over whether or not climate change is real. Not only is it real, it&apos;s here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster.<br />~ Barack Obama <br />
  8. 8. A report, based on the work of some 2,500 scientists in more than 130 countries, concluded that humans have caused all or most of the current planetary warming. <br />Human-caused global warming is often called anthropogenic climate change. <br />
  9. 9. More than a million species face extinction from disappearing habitat, changing ecosystems, and acidifying oceans. <br />
  10. 10. Don’t you…<br />Like your…<br />Air clean?<br />
