Greenhouse EffectClimate ChangeGlobal Warming<br />By: Charles Trommer and Marissa Cubbage<br />
What do they mean?<br />Greenhouse affect- when greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, etc.)trap heat and energy from the sun in the troposphere<br />Climate change- when overall state of a region, like the amount of annual precipitation, temperature range, etc, changes dramatically <br />Global Warming- When the average temperature of the whole Earth rises<br />
How are the three terms related?<br />The greenhouse gases that keep heat and energy in the atmosphere lead to …<br />Global warming- or the rising of the global temperature. This leads to….<br />Climate changes in areas around the globe!<br />
Main Causes of Global Warming<br />The emitted gases like carbon dioxide makes an ozone in the troposphere that blocks energy and heat from escaping the atmosphere.<br />The carbon dioxide emitted form decomposing animals and plants<br />
Consequences of Global Warming<br />Glaciers are melting, causing sea levels to rise and constricting the homes of polar bears and penguins<br />Climate can change in unexpected ways; tropical storms, droughts, and cloud cover. <br />Temperature is rising faster than animals and plants can adapt.<br />Without the normal cold spells, fungi and diseases can spread more easily and effect the crops<br />
Global Warming’s impact on Economy<br /> As the concept of Global warming spreads around the world, government officials are making laws about company emissions. Many times, it is slightly more expensive to make a company more, “green”. <br />Also, many states have a law that every car must pass an emission’s test, or the owner must pay a fee. This fee can vary from 50-200 dollars. <br /> Cars, plastic bottles, and other packaging materials are becoming more “green”, and thus the price of these everyday objects increases and effects the economy.<br />
What the Skeptics Say<br />Our on-land calculations of the atmosphere supply feeble evidence<br /> the planet has gone trough periods of warming and cooling before, and we’re still here!<br /> what can a couple degrees do to this humongous earth!<br />
Our Opinion<br />We believe that the earth is really getting warmer, and it is partially humans fault. We believe this because…<br /><ul><li>From space the receding polar caps are very obvious
This issue started appearing when humans started emitting a lot of greenhouse gases</li></ul>- For decades researchers have been working on this controversial subject, and their opinions are based on facts, while the skeptics have petty reasons that really have no solid foundation<br />
