  1. 1. Global Warming Effects<br />Authors: Jake Perrine and Josh Starner<br />
  2. 2. What are the effects…?<br />
  3. 3. How are they related?<br />The greenhouse gases trap heat from the sun and Earth in the atmosphere.<br />That leads to drastic changes in the climate by increasing the average temperature.<br />The increase in temperature leads up to the creation of global warming.<br />
  4. 4. Causes of Global Warming<br />Humans emit extra greenhouse gases that trap in more heat, causing in the average temperature to be warmer.<br />Examples: Driving a car, production in factories, and producing electricity. <br />
  5. 5. Consequences<br />Ice caps are melting worldwide.<br />Decrease in penguin and polar bear population.<br />Sea levels rising.<br />Animals move up north to reach cooler temperatures.<br />Average precipitation worldwide has increased.<br />Beetles in Alaska chew up trees.<br />Hurricanes and tropical storms are stronger.<br />Floods and droughts are more common.<br />Diseases spread more easily; such as malaria.<br />Less fresh water is available.<br />
  6. 6. Impact of Global Warming on Economy<br />Agriculture, energy production, and transportation are affected.<br />Every year for the past four years, seven million acres of forest have been burned ($1.3 billion).<br />Sea levels are rising and may cost the Northeast region $2-6.5 billion.<br />
  7. 7. Ways to fight it<br />Use less electricity, heating, and water at home and/or at work.<br />Use other ways of transportation, if possible, that don’t release greenhouse gases.<br />Examples: Walking, biking, jogging, etc. <br />
  8. 8. Arguments<br />The release of greenhouse gases don’t cause global warming.<br />Global climate computers are too crude to predict future climate changes.<br />Modest amounts of global warming are actually beneficial to nature and humans.<br />
  9. 9. Our Opinions<br />Josh- Global warming is caused more be natural events, rather than human intervention, because the Earth releases more greenhouse gases than humans.<br />Jake- Natural causes are more of the cause than humans because our Earth has been getting warmer for many years, even before humans were created.<br />
