    • Global Warming
      By: Sam Bouton and Emily Sullivan
    • 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
    • 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)
    • 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
    • Consequences
      Hotter world
      Dirtier air and water
      More severe floods and droughts
      More wildfires
      Endangered or extinct species
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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.
