Transcript

  • 1. 6. The consequences of global climate change will be significant and change the way we live. Need: Outline maps of UK Outline maps of World Textbook page 71
  • 2. objectives
    • To explain the economic, social, environmental and political consequences of global climate change for the World
    • To explain the economic, social, environmental and political consequences of global climate change for the UK.
  • 3. The impacts of global warming in the UK
    • Defra estimates that the annual average temperatures in the UK may rise by between 20C and 3.50C by 2080.
    • Temperatures are expected to rise most in the south and east
    • Higher summer temperatures will become more common and summers will be drier
    • Cold winters becoming increasingly rare – winters will become wetter
  • 4.  
  • 5. Your task….
    • Look closely at the map showing possible impacts of global warming in the UK
    • Draw up a table:
    Disadvantages of global warming in the UK Advantages of global warming in UK
  • 6.  
  • 7.  
  • 8. Possible impacts of global warming in the world
    • Draw up a table to show the impacts of global warming across the world – or annotate a world map
    • What do you consider to be the three disadvantages that could have the greatest impact on the geography of the world? Explain your answer
    • Which advantage do you think will bring the greatest benefits to the world?
  • 9. Impacts of global warming
    • Look at the list of impacts on the separate worksheet.
    • Shade in blue the economic impacts
    • Shade in red the social impacts
    • Shade in green the environmental impacts
  • 10. summary
    • Global warming is increasing the rate at which the ice caps are melting causing sea levels to rise. This will increase the risk of coastal flooding in the future.
    • Other effects include:
    • Changes to weather patterns and increasing frequency of storms
    • Changes to habitats as a result of climate change
    • Shifts in farming patterns and food production
    • More extreme climate events such as droughts in tropical areas leading to an increased risk of famine
    • The spread of climate related disease
