  1. 1. Possible Solutions for the Future<br />Anilton Lourenço nº4<br />Fábio Torres nº9<br />João Ruben nº13<br />Mariana Pereira nº18<br />
  2. 2. Introduction<br />We all live in a beautiful place called planet earth.<br />In the beginning there was a balance between the humans and nature.<br />But as time went by, the human race developed so much that it started to upset the balance, causing serious problems such as global warming, deforestation, pollution and many others. <br />
  3. 3. Global Warming <br />Global warming is being caused essentially by the emissions of gases such as CO2 and CFC’s.<br />CO2 is one of the most important greenhouse gasses.<br />This type of gasses can absorb solar radiations.<br />Currently the emission of gasses to the atmosphere is rising what causes a stronger greenhouse effect, that causes this issue. <br />
  4. 4. Greenhouse effect<br /><ul><li> If we continue this activities the planet will get warmer and warmer and there will be consequences </li></li></ul><li>Consequences<br />Floods<br />
  5. 5. Consequences<br />Rise of temperature<br />
  6. 6. Consequences<br />Acid rain<br />
  7. 7. The list of problems goes on and on and on…<br />So, what can we do?<br />
  8. 8. What can we do to save our planet?<br />Start using renewable energy <br /> Renewable energy is the energy which comes from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, and geothermal heat. <br />They are naturally replenished.<br />
  9. 9. What can we do to save our planet?<br />Recycle<br />Used materials that are transformed, giving rise to new materials<br />
