Alec and Raul period 5

  1. 1. Global warming<br />By: Alec and Raul <br />
  2. 2. What is greenhouse effect, climate change, and global warming?<br />Carbon dioxide, water vapor, and methane are able to change the energy balance of the planet by absorbing long waves of radiation emitted from the earths surface.<br />Climate change is when a place becomes warmer or colder over time.<br />
  3. 3. How are greenhouse effect, climate change, and global warming related<br />Global warming causes climate change and greenhouse effect causes global warming<br />
  4. 4. What are the primary causes of global warming?<br />Mankind is the main cause because they emit greenhouse gases into our atmosphere such as carbon dioxide from cars. <br />
  5. 5. Consequences of global warming<br />Weather patterns may change<br />Health of human beings can change because of the gases in the atmosphere<br />Wildlife can be effected like how the ocean water can become acidic and kill the fish<br />The sea levels can rise because of the melting of glaciers from the oceans and the poles<br />
  6. 6. How is global warming impacting economy<br />Longer growing seasons, melting along the northwest passage for cheaper shipping are some positive examples<br />Japanese beetles can stay here longer because it will stay warmer for a longer period of time and they kill millions of trees<br />More allergies because of the warmer weather<br />
  7. 7. Ways to fight global warming<br />Drive less<br />Use less heat and air conditioning<br />Use less hot water<br />Plant some trees<br />
  8. 8. What is the basic argument against global warming<br />Most scientist believe that human activities do not disrupt global warming or the earth’s climate in any way.<br />
  9. 9. Personal opinions of global warming<br />I think it is real and dangerous to humans. I think this because if glaciers do melt it can raise the sea level and cause the water to come closer to the land. I think that it can also be dangerous because it kills the wildlife in the ocean and can ruin an ecosystem which means it can effect ours.<br />
