  • 1. Global Warming
    By: Sam Bouton and Emily Sullivan
  • 2. Definitions
    Greenhouse effect-Trapping and build-up of heat in the Troposphere
    Climate Change-Refers to any significant change in measures of climate lasting for an extended period
    Global warming-average increase in the temperature of the atmosphere
  • 3. Relationships
    Burning fossil fuels pour out greenhouse gases at a life-threatening rate, causing global warming
    They are all affecting the Earth with harmful gases(over time)
  • 4. Causes
    Some scientists say humans are one of the only causes of global warming, because of the greenhouse gases they emit
    Others say greenhouse gases are the number one cause, but not emitted from humans
  • 5. Consequences
    Hotter world
    Dirtier air and water
    More severe floods and droughts
    More wildfires
    Endangered or extinct species
  • 6. Economy
    Huge amounts of money are being spent on projects and funds to clean the environment
    Spent a lot of money invested in renewable energy, every year the money spent increases
  • 7. Fighting
    We can walk, bike, carpool, or any other way or transportation other than vehicles that emit pollution
    Replace light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs
    Save energy by turning off lights when you leave the room, not wasting water, and not leave things with engines running
  • 8. Arguments
    Most scientists do not believe humans effect the Earth’s climate
    Our most reliable source of temperature data show no global warming trend
    Global climate computer models are too crude to predict future climate changes
    The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) doesn’t prove human activities are causing global warming
  • 9. Opinions
    We believe that global warming doesn’t exist because all the predictions of global warming are based off of computer models and there’s no historical data. Also, we don’t believe that human activities affect the Earth’s changing climate and in addition, our most reliable sources of temperature data don’t show any global warming trends.
