What is the greenhouse effect? Climate change? Global Warming? Greenhouse effect: Process in which earth’s atmosphere absorbs radiation and allows some to be radiated to the surface. Some gases are Nitrogen and oxygen. Climate Changes: Caused by shifts in the planet. Heats and cools over a long or short period of time. Global Warming: The planet’s temperature is gradually increasing. The current heating of earth’s climate changes rhythms of the climate of all living things.
How are they related? Global Warming is a climate change that is occurring over a short period of time which is unnatural. They all are related to Earth’s climate and temperature changes. The greenhouse effect is how our atmosphere reacts and changes to radiation which can change the temperature of an area.
Primary Causes of Global Warming An increase in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere Caused by human’s activity artificially recreating it Sun’s solar activity also, could play a small role
Possible Consequences We will experience extreme temperatures. Sea levels will rise, Storms that we’re not prepared for. Disease-carrying mosquitoes and rodents spread because of the increase in temp. Severe heat, floods, and other catastrophes. Health risks.
Effect on Economy It will have a greater risk on the economy if we don’t take action The economy will loose its resources from an impact of Global Warming It will take a lot of effort and new ideas to learn how to readapt to the effect’s of Global Warming on the economy It is a good investment to take action to fight it
Several ways we can fight Global Warming. Gas-powered cars to either electric or battery cars. Drive less Regular light bulbs CFL light bulbs. Less factories Cleaning litter Save water Energy efficient appliances Recycle
Basic Argument Temperature data sources show no trend We can’t see the future so we don’t know the outcome of global warming. People don’t buy into it, thinking global warming is just a story. Think changes are too much money. People don’t want to regret supporting it if nothing happens.
PersonalOpinions Some people get too worried about it when it doesn’t seem like a big deal to some people. I think the planet may be getting warmer right now naturally. Humans may play a small role in this climate change, if we do we should try to be more efficient, but I don’t think we can stop everything. It’s good to help our planet but we shouldn’t be spending so much money on it.
