How Global Warming Works? Greenhouse gases Fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas) Carbon Dioxide (CO 2 )
CAUSES OF GLOBAL WARMING…
Pollution from coal, natural gas, and oil
CO 2 from airplanes & vehicles.
Increased CO 2 results in
The Sun’s energy passes through the car’s windshield. This energy (heat) is trapped inside the car and cannot pass back through the windshield, causing the inside of the car to warm up Example of the Greenhouse Effect

Follow the arrow…..
Turn off your computer or the TV when you’re not using it.
Turn off the lights when you leave a room.
Be Bulb Smart—Use CFLs Incandescent Compact Fluorescent
1,430 lbs. CO 2 pollution avoided
500 lbs. of coal
Dress lightly when it’s hot instead of turning up the air conditioning.
Unplug unused electronics
Drive LESS, drive SMART Use a bicycle or bus
Have Faith on…
Fuel efficient cars
Global Warming: Shifting Gears
Save the Earth before it's too late...
