Candace C - Global Warming

  1. 1. Global Warming The Silent but Deadly Killer Preying on Our Earth.
  2. 2. Global Warming <ul><li>Global warming is a serious issue that we can do something about. We are the caretakers of the earth and it is our duty to protect the planet. </li></ul>
  3. 3. The world as we know it… <ul><li>Will change dramatically over the next few years if we don’t take the necessary steps to slow down global warming. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Taking the first step… <ul><li>In order for us to care for our suffering planet we must fully understand the ‘disease’ that it is fighting. The ‘disease’ that I speak of is global warming. We must educate ourselves and others about what global warming is… </li></ul>
  5. 5. Understanding <ul><li>Global warming is the increase of average temperatures of the Earth’s near–surface air and oceans. Global warming is the direct result of anthropogenic greenhouse gases. When these gases are concentrated in the atmosphere they trap heat. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Our Beautiful Planet <ul><li>This is the earth as we think it is. This is what we have envisioned in our heads. But these landscapes have changed since our parents generation, their parents and even before that. </li></ul>
  7. 7. In Reality… <ul><li>This is what our landscapes look like. There are fewer green spaces and city life has really taken over. </li></ul>
  8. 8. With growth… <ul><li>Comes consequences, not just success. We must do everything we can to prevent countries from believing that as long as they make the money, the world will love them. </li></ul>
  9. 9. The Truth <ul><li>We cannot afford to harm our environment. Society is not what raises the next generation. A wealthy city cannot make a healthy child. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Because we have allowed it… <ul><li>This is what our earth is turning into. Our oceans are rising as a result of the melting glaciers. Global warming has caused our poles to shrink considerably in just the past few years. </li></ul>
  11. 11. The Rising Oceans <ul><li>Our oceans are rising, putting low lying areas in great risk. Our coastlines are about to change from this… </li></ul>
  12. 12. To this…
  13. 13. The weather… <ul><li>Isn’t looking to fabulous anymore. We will suffer extreme weather conditions as a result of global warming. We are already experiencing drought. </li></ul>
  14. 14. And strong storms…
  15. 15. What can I do? <ul><li>We can all help slow down global warming. Here are some things we can do in our everyday lives to aid mother Earth. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Start at home <ul><li>Look at your household appliances, are they energy efficient? </li></ul>
  17. 17. Change your light bulbs! Get LED or CFL bulbs
  18. 18. Your mode of Transportation <ul><li>For every gallon of gas you burn, 26 pounds of carbon dioxide enters the air. Consider buying a hybrid car, a flex-fuel, an electric, or a car that has a lithium battery. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Your Yard <ul><li>Instead of that gas powered lawnmower, try a push mower. Its better for you physically and the Earth will thank you. Not to mention the neighbors will love the peace and quiet! </li></ul>
  20. 20. Always Recycle! <ul><li>In addition to recycling you should pay attention to how much trash you are producing. Instead of buying bottled water all the time, buy a filter for your tap water. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Take your cloth bags to grocery, don’t use paper or plastic! <ul><li>Minimize the use of plastic whenever possible. Grocery shopping is a good place to start. Remember, you are saving trees when you refuse to use paper bags. </li></ul>
  22. 22. You really can do it! <ul><li>Global warming is a big issue, one that effects the earth which in turn effects us. But don’t forget about all of the plant and animal life you will be saving by taking the steps to slow down global warming. </li></ul>
  23. 23. Good luck to all the guardians of the Earth.
