Global Warming Presentation Global Warming Presentation Presentation Transcript

  • TANVEER AHMAD AND ROBIN PUNIT SINGH G L O B A L W WELCOME A R to a M PRESENTATION I on N G “GLOBAL WARMING ”
  • Mumbai’s Nariman Point will be submerged by Year 2020 Nariman Point at present 2008 Nariman Point on 2020
  • There is not enough time left , just 8 years to save the planet… -Times of India, 8th May, 2007 These are not prophesies by traditional monks or saints but by IPCC ( Inter Governmental Panel on Climate Change) DIRECTOR – Suresh pachori (2007 novel prize winner [peace])
  • G L  Global warming is now “unequivocal” and that O human activity “very likely” has been the B primary cause of rising temperatures worldwide A since 1950. L  The report summary also says that global warming is likely to continue for centuries, and W A that it is already too late to stop some of the R serious consequences it will bring—even if M mankind could somehow hold the line on I greenhouse gas emissions worldwide starting N today G
  • G L Continuous increase the temperature of O the earth is called B global warming A L W A R M I N G
  • G L O B A L W A R M I N G
  • G The gas traps heat more effectively than all other L gasses are known as Green house gasses, occur O naturally in the environment and also result from B human activities. These gasses are A L  Water vapor  Carbon dioxide W  Methane A R  Nitrous oxide M  CFC I N G
  • G L O B A L W A R M I N G
  • G Next most abundant green house L gas that flows into atmosphere O from many processes such as B  By burning of fossil fuels, solid A wastes & wood products, to drive L vehicles, generate electricity, deforestation (huge cutting of W trees) A R  Volcanic eruptions M I N G
  • Pollution is the Primary Cause G L C + O2 CO2 O B A L W A R M I N G Burning carbon-containing fossil fuels produces carbon dioxide
  • CO2 Emissions to atmosphere G L O B A L W A R M I N G
  • G L O B A L W A R M I N G
  • An effective insulator trapping over 20 G L times more heat than does the same O amount of CO2 . B Since the beginning of the industrial A L revolution , the amount of methane in the atmosphere has more than W A doubled. R M I N G
  • IMPACT OF GLOBAL G WARMING L O B A L W A R M I N G
  • CLIMATE • As per scientists’ prediction the warmed world will be more humid & hot which will G result in more water L evaporation from earth O • Humid weather will B enhance rainfall but A with change pattern & L high intensity W • Storm will be more A strong & frequent R • Weather pattern are M suspected to be less I predictable and more N extreme G
  • G L O 1 B A L W A R M I N G 1980
  • G L O B 2002 A L W A R M I N G 2002
  • G L O B A L W A R M I N G 2003
  • G L O B A L W A R 2002 2003 2004 M I N G 2004
  • SEA LEVEL • Sea level world wide rose 10-20 cm in 20th century G • In 21st century IPCC L predicts a rise of 9 O B to 88 cm . A • It will submerge 6% L of Netherlands, 17.5% of Bangladesh W A and many Island will R disappear. M (Lakshadweep, I Andaman and nicobar, N G SL, Maldives etc.)
  • AGRICULTURE •Increase in temperature may cause a pole-ward Shift of agricultural zones G and shift in growing L seasons. O B •Equatorial zones, where A L agriculture is generally unproductive now, will W A deteriorate further. R •In many areas currently M I fertile, like parts of south N G America, New Zealand, and Southern Africa, condition are Predicted to become more arid and crop yields to become more marginal.
  • Animals at Risk • Polar bears • Walruses • Ice seals • Black guillemots • Kittiwak Salmon • Caribou • Arctic grayling
  • ANIMAL • A hell of a lot of species are in big trouble • Animal and plants will G find it difficult to escape L from or adjust to effect of O warming because of less B availability of space A already occupied by L human populace. •Approximately 20-30% of W plant and animal Species A assessed so far are likely to R be at greater risk of M extinction if increases in I global Average temperature N exceed 1.5 to 2.5 Celsius. G
  • ANIMAL “There is no doubt in my mind that climate change is one of the greatest threats facing humanity today.” G L O Most plants and animals B are affected , and the A change is occurring too L quickly for them to evolve. W A More than 3000 flying R foxes dropped dead, M falling from trees in I Australia. N G
  • HUMAN HEALTH •As per IPCC more people will get sick or die G from heat stress due to warmer nights L O B •Today 45% of world population is affected by A mosquito carrying parasites. The percentage L may increase to 60 if temperature rise rate remains same till 2030. Other diseases e.g. W A dengue fever, yellow fever and encephalitis R will increase rapidly M I •Allergies & respiratory disease grow as N G warmer air grows as it will be more charged with pollutant
  • EFFECT OF GLOBAL WARMING ON INDIAN CONTEXT G L O B A L W A R M I N G
  • 30% DROP IN PER CAPITA WATER AVAILABILITY BY 2030 FOR INDIANS AS GREAT DRYS BECOME FREQUENT G L O B A L W A R M I N G
  • COASTAL CATASTROPHE :- SEA LEVEL WILL RISE 40 CM HIGHER BY 2100 AND 50 MILLION PEOPLE IN COASTAL INDIA WOULD BE DISPLACED BY FLOODING G L O B A L W A R M I N G
  • Wheat production will fall by 17% in India if the temperature rise by even half-a degree centigrade G L O B A L W A R M I N G
  • THE HIMALAYAN GLACIERS MAY TOTALLY DISAPPEAR CAUSING CATASTROPHIC DISRUPTION G L O B A L W A R M I N G
  • THE GLACIER MELTDOWN WILL FIRST RESULT IN RIVERS BEING FLOODED AND THEN DRYING UP. THE GANGA DELTA WOULD TURN G INFERTILE L O B A L W A R M I N G
  • IF CURRENT WARMING RATE PERSIST, GLACIERS ON THE TIBET PLATEAU WILL SHRINK RAPIDLY FROM 5 LAKH SQ KM TO 1 LAKH SQ KM BY 2030 G L O B A L W A R M I N G
  • •WARMER OCEAN TEMPERATURE WOULD LEAD TO BLEACHING AND DESTROY VAST TRACTS OF INDIAN CORAL REEFS •OCEAN ACIDIFICATION WOULD LEAD TO SHELL G DISSOLUTION, SEVERELY IMPACTING MARINE L O LIFE AND FISHERIES B A L W A R M I N G
  • G L O B 25% AMOUNT OF ANIMALS OR PLANTS IN A INDIA WOULD EXTINCT BY THE YEAR OF L 2030. W A R M I N G
  • G L O B A L W A R M I N G
  • Reuse & Recycle G L • whenever you can, recycle paper, plastic, O newspaper, glass and aluminum cans. B A L • By recycling half of your household waste, you can save 2,400 pounds of carbon dioxide annually. W A R M I N G
  • G L  Setting your thermostat just 2 O B degrees lower in winter and higher A in summer could save about 2,000 L pounds of carbon dioxide each year. W A R M I N G
  •  CFLs last 10 times longer than regular G bulbs, use two-thirds less energy, and give L off 70 percent less heat. O  If every family in India replaces one B regular light bulb with a CFL, it would A L eliminate 900 billion pounds of greenhouse gases, the same as taking W 27.5 million cars off the road. A R M I N G
  •  Less driving means fewer emissions. G  When you do drive, make sure your car L is running efficiently O B  Every gallon of gas you save not only A helps your budget, it also keeps 20 L pounds of carbon dioxide out of the environment . W A R M I N G
  • G L  Home appliances now come in a range of O energy-efficient products B  Avoid products that come with excess A packaging, especially molded plastic and other L packaging that can't be recycled. If you reduce your household garbage by 10 percent, you W can save 1,200 pounds of carbon dioxide A annually. R M I N G
  • G If you have the means to plant a tree, L O start digging.. B They are there to fully counter the A increases in carbon dioxide caused by L automobile traffic, manufacturing and W other human activities. A R A single tree will absorb M approximately one ton of carbon I N dioxide during its lifetime. G
  • G Save electricity and reduce global warming by L O turning off lights when you leave a room, and B using only as much light as you need. A And remember to turn off your television, video L player, stereo and computer when you're not using them. W A R M I N G
  • G L Change technology: O B A improve efficiency L use green energy W Utilize renewable energy A R M I N G
  • What We Want ? A Planet- A Planet- or Devastated Peaceful Choice is OURS
  • LETS DREAM AND WORK TOGETHER FOR A PLANET THAT OUR FUTURE GENERATION CAN CHERISH Life is a Gift from God, and how I make it – is a gift to God
