  3. 3. How Global Warming, Climate Change, and the Greenhouse Effect are Related<br /> The Greenhouse Effect is a main cause of Global Warming<br />Global Warming speeds up the Natural Climate Change process<br />
  4. 4. Primary Causes of Global Warming<br /> Buildup of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere mainly from fossil fuel emissions<br />Deforestation, because plants store carbon and when the plants are killed, it goes into the atmosphere<br />Methane being released in various ways <br />
  5. 5. Possible Consequences If We Do Not Work To Stop Global Warming<br />Ice is melting worldwide<br />Ecosystems will change<br />Hurricanes and other storms may become stronger<br />Sea levels rise faster<br />
  6. 6. How Global Warming is Impacting the Economy<br /> Changing weather patterns make it difficult for farmers to grow crops reliably<br />The crops they are able to grow will cost more to make up for their lower yield<br />The public will have to pay more money for food<br />
  7. 7. Several Ways to Fight Global Warming<br /> Replace light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs <br /> Drive less or choose efficient cars<br /> Buy energy efficient appliances<br />
  8. 8. Basic Arguments Against Global Warming<br />Climate Change is a natural process<br />We can’t stop it and it would be a waste of money <br /> A small amount would be beneficial<br />
