Transcript of "Global Warming: COOLING OFF THE GLOBE ONE DEGREE AT A TIME"
09 October 2013
Global Warming is the rise of the average
temperature of Earth’s atmosphere and oceans.
This issue was projected in the late 19th
Century. Since the 20th Century, Earth’s
atmospheric temperature has risen more than
its average taking. Meaning, GLOBAL WARMING
IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST ISSUES THE WORLD HAS
YET TO TAKE SERIOUSLY.
One of the major causes of Global Warming is
the effect of greenhouse gasses emitted by
humans. This action is referred to as the
greenhouse affect. There are different
greenhouse gases causing the effect of Global
Warming; combustion of fossil fuels in cars,
factories and electricity production. This is a
big factor in trying to change our habits
because subconciously, we use all these gases
everyday. The major gas that is affecting us all
is carbon dioxide (CO2).
The Earth is slowly, but surely, melting away; from the
North Pole to the South Pole. Our weather patterns are
breaking all time records in tempurature increases.
More hurricanes are starting to appear as well as
tornados. The melting of our poles and icy countries
cause the sea level to rise faster every year. A major
impact on the air we breathe has also been affected by
Global Warming. In July 2006, severe heat waves in
North America contributed to the deaths of at least 225
Global Warming affects EVERYONE and
EVERYTHING. From the plants and our soil to
the endangered animals living in high risk
spaces. Most common animals affected by
global warming, are those in the Arctic such
as the polar bears and pinguins. Global
Warming also affects all of US. We all
experience the natural disatsters and
uncomfortable heat waves.
4 ways to stop Global Warming; reduction of gas emissions,
stopping deforestation, fighting misinformation, and
preparing for impact. Reducing gas emissions is the first
main way to start controlling global warming. Union of
Concerned Scientists really put effort in conducting ways to
control and defeat global warming. A good way of doing so
is stopping the misinformation of Global Warming. By
stopping the misinformation and spreading the correct
information, we can inform people to do the right thing
rather the wrong. Another major factor in stopping global
warming, is stopping the deforestation. "Tropical
deforestation accounts for about 15 percent of the world’s
heat-trapping emissions — more than the total emissions of
every car, truck, plane, ship, and train on Earth." By doing
so, we will be able to better control the heat trapping in
