Global%20 warming[1]

  1. 1. GLOBAL WARMING <br />By Andrea Espinosa<br />Francine Gonzalez<br />Paola Gutierrez <br />
  2. 2. What is Global Warming?<br />Warming of Earth’s Climate due to human released green house gases. <br />Increase in the temperature of earth’s atmosphere.<br />
  3. 3. Green House Gases <br /><ul><li>Carbon Dioxide
  4. 4. Methane
  5. 5. Water Vapor </li></ul>These gases are released when we drive cars, burn wood or coal, large power plants. <br />Deforestation(cutting down of forests) is also a reason for the greenhouse gases because fewer trees means less carbon dioxide converted to oxygen. <br />
  6. 6. WHAT IS CAUSING GLOBAL WARMING <br />Human activities <br /><ul><li>increase in greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide means more heat being trapped by the atmosphere, leading to higher temperatures around the globe and potential for global climate change. </li></ul>Carbon Dioxide <br />Increased in the 19th century <br />30% more Oil, gas, and coal <br />
  7. 7. Where is it happening?<br />EARTH!! <br />
  8. 8. Evidence for warming.. <br /><ul><li>global average air and ocean temperature
  9. 9. Warmer, dry summers
  10. 10. Widespread melting of snow and ice
  11. 11. Melting Arctic
  12. 12. Rising of global average sea levels.
  13. 13. Disappearing Islands </li></li></ul><li>How is Global Warming affecting Humans?<br />Changing food production and security may cause hunger<br />More sever and frequent wildfires will threaten more people<br />Flooding linked to rising sea levels will displace millions <br />More illness and death resulting from heat waves<br />Worsening air pollution causes more respiratory and cardiovascular disease<br />Vector-bore disease infection will rise<br />
  14. 14. How is Global warming affecting Animals?<br />Food sources<br />Places to raise their young<br />Wildlife depends on healthy habitats. They need:<br />The right temperatures<br />Fresh water<br />
  15. 15. How is global warming affecting Plants?<br />Global rain has been linked to acid rain which destroys anything it touches<br />In 2003 an article reported effects of global warming in at least 1200 species worldwide<br />Global warming is killing algae<br />Its destroying many forests <br />
  16. 16. How do humans, animals and plants live in it (adaptations)?<br />Plants try to adapt to global warming by moving to a new location or go extinct<br />Humans adapt to global warming by trying to change the way they live.<br />Animals try to adapt to global warming by relocation if possible to raise their young<br />
  17. 17. Pollution <br />Commuting on a daily basis such as driving increases the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.<br />One way to prevent the increase of pollution is by carpooling!! <br />
  18. 18. Helping the environment<br />More people are riding buses, walking to school, riding their bikes, taking the metro just to lower the amount of green gases in the atmosphere. <br />
  19. 19. TIME FOR CHANGE <br />The Clean Air Act 1970<br />“Air that is safe to breathe”<br /><ul><li> Products such as hairspray, foam cups, etc., now contain labels which inform the consumer how that product can harm the environment. </li></li></ul><li>Works Cited<br />“Environment Global Warming and Greenhouse Effect.” World Almanac 2000.
