Climate changeglobal warminggreen house effect<br />By: Dylan Flor and Emily Jones<br />
green house effect, global warming, and climate change<br />Green house effect (GHE): the average increase of the Earth because certain gasses absorb inferred heat that would normally be radiated into space.<br />Global warming: the rapid increase in earths average surface temperature over the last century do to the releasing f green house gasses.<br />Climate change: a change in the typical or average weather of a region or city<br />
The relationship<br />Climate change happens because of global warming and the green house effect<br />Global warming happens due to the green house effect<br />
Why it happens<br />Human induced increase in heat trapping gasses<br />Methane<br />CO2 build up<br />
The after math…<br />The ocean doesn’t absorb as much CO2<br />Water levels rise<br /> Arctic population numbers decrease<br /> flying species are moving north and higher to cooler areas sooner<br />Hurricanes become stronger<br />Less fresh water is available <br />Floods and draughts become more common<br />Precipitation levels increase<br />Diseases can spread faster<br />
How Global warming affects the Economy<br />The increased temperatures could hurt growth of food. This would increase the cost of foods.<br />If the government was to try cut down on gas emissions it would be very expensive that we would have to pay for through taxes.<br />If polar ice caps melt it could cause land to be flooded and less land to be built on, raising property value.<br />
Ways to fight Global Warming<br />People can start moving away from using fossil fuels.<br />Then start using electricity, solar power, and other green energies.<br />Use cars as little as possible.<br />
Arguments Against Global Warming<br />No actual evidence showing how human release of greenhouse gases is causing any issues.<br />Also people say the data shown that there is no warming trend and misguided information.<br />
Opinions on Global Warming<br />I believe that human’s do not have any significant role in in the warming of the earth if any at all. <br />Natural gases are being emitted in far greater amounts than produced by humans.<br />
