  1. 1. Global Warming By: Ashley Marczenko
  2. 2. Table of Contents  Is It Happening?  The Cause  Prevention Plan  Conclusion  References
  3. 3. Is It Happening?  According to National Geographic News the Earth is showing many signs of world wide climate change (www.nationalgeographic.com).  Average temperatures have increased 1.4 degrees Farenheit around the world, much of this occurred in recent decades (www.nationalgeographic.com). Next
  4. 4. Is It Happening?  Glaciers and Mountain tops are quickly melting. Thaws are coming a week earlier in the spring and freezes are beginning a week later than previously (www.news.nationalgeographic.com).  Next  Home
  5. 5. Quick Quiz  How many degrees has temperature increased around the world due to global warming?  Answer….1.4 degrees Fahrenheit  Next
  6. 6. The Cause  Change in climatic conditions of the Earth can be due to various external and internal factors. These can be natural or man-made factors. Some of the natural causes are volcanic emissions and solar activity (D’Silva).  Next
  7. 7. The Cause  Carbon Monoxide contributes around 12% of the greenhouse effect and methane gas causes 5% to 10% of global warming (D’Silva).  Next  Home
  8. 8. Quick Quiz Which gas contributes to 12% of the Greenhouse effect? Answer…Carbon Monoxide Next
  9. 9. Prevention Plan  The main importance to prevention of Global Warming is to reduce the level of various gases into the environment. An easy way to do this is to reduce the amount of gasoline and oil into the air. An individual can easily do this by carpooling to places such as work or even for leisure nights out (Franklin).  Next
  10. 10. Prevention Plan A prevention tactic can also be using lighting in our homes that saves energy. It can help also by choosing various energy efficient appliances (Franklin). Next Home
  11. 11. Quick Quiz What is the easiest way for us as citizens of this Earth to help prevent Global Warming? Answer….Carpooling 
  12. 12. Global Warming Pictures
  13. 13. Conclusion  My first moment of surprise was learning that the average temperature has increased by 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit around the world. After further research I know that temperatures will only continue to increase.  It was also new to me that volcanic emissions are a natural cause to global warming. When I think of global warming I think of carbon monoxide and solar activity.  This presentation was my first time using hyperlinks in a power point so it was interesting learning how to do so.  Home
