  • what's up with Global Warming

    1. 1. GLOBAL WARMING
    2. 2. It should NOT be confused with climate change
    3. 3. What is global warming?
    4. 4. <ul><li>GLOBAL WARMING </li></ul><ul><li>is the increase of the Earth’s average surface temperature due to a build-up of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. </li></ul><ul><li>CLIMATE CHANGE </li></ul><ul><li>is a broader term that refers to long-term changes in climate, including average temperature and precipitation. </li></ul>Difference
    5. 5. Increase in the average measured temperature of the Earth's surface air and oceans
    6. 6. How Global Warming Works Greenhouse gases Fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas) Carbon Dioxide (CO 2 )
    7. 7. CAUSES OF GLOBAL WARMING
    8. 8. Pollution from coal, natural gas, and oil
    9. 9. CO 2 from airplanes & vehicles
    10. 10. POPULATION INCREASE
    11. 11. DEFORESTATION
    12. 12. Increased CO 2 results in
    13. 13. Greenhouse Effect
    14. 14. The Sun’s energy passes through the car’s windshield. This energy (heat) is trapped inside the car and cannot pass back through the windshield, causing the inside of the car to warm up. Example of the Greenhouse Effect
    15. 15. Global warming causes
    16. 16. Melting of glaciers
    17. 17. Polar Bear Extinction
    18. 18. Warmer waters and more hurricanes
    19. 19. Increased probability and intensity of droughts and heat waves
    20. 20. Increased Temperature
    21. 21. Melting Polar ice caps
    22. 22. Animals like……
    23. 24. THESE…..
    24. 25. think like……
    25. 26. WHERE IS my habitat…!!!
    26. 27. THIS….
    27. 28. ANTARCTICA – losing ice faster..!!!!!! BEFORE NOW
    28. 29. Major CONSEQUENCE of global warming is…………. GUESS WHAT !!
    29. 32. At some places, it
    30. 34. At others……
    31. 36. SOMEWHERE it’s tooo…….ooo
    32. 37. HOT
    33. 38. WHEREAS At others tooo…..
    34. 39. COLD
    35. 41. Its all because of
    36. 42. GLOBAL WARMING
    37. 43. CAUSED BY WHOM…?????
    38. 44. WHO Is THE CULPRIT??????
    39. 46. WE are the ones causing It
    40. 48. BUT
    41. 49. WE need PROOF
    42. 50. SO Here’s the PROOF
    43. 51. Portage Glacier <ul><li>Alaska </li></ul>Photos: NOAA Photo Collection and Gary Braasch – WorldViewOfGlobalWarming.org 1914 2004
    44. 52. Colorado River <ul><li>Arizona </li></ul>June 2002 Dec 2003
    45. 53. When did global warming start?
    46. 54. Global Atmospheric Concentration of CO 2
    47. 55. DON’T CRY
    48. 56. It’s NOT too LATE ACT NOW!!!!
    49. 57. We can stop global warming!
    50. 58. JUST DO…………these Follow the arrow…..
    51. 59. Spread awareness
    52. 60. Turn off your computer or the TV when you’re not using it.
    53. 61. Turn off the lights when you leave a room.
    54. 62. Be Bulb Smart—Use CFLs Incandescent Compact Fluorescent <ul><li>1,430 lbs. CO 2 pollution avoided </li></ul><ul><li>$30 saved </li></ul>500 lbs. of coal
    55. 63. Dress lightly when it’s hot instead of turning up the air conditioning.
    56. 64. Unplug unused electronics
    57. 65. Plant trees.
    58. 66. Recycle.
    59. 67. Drive LESS, drive SMART Use a bicycle or bus
    60. 68. AND
    61. 69. Have Faith on……………
    62. 70. Wind Power
    63. 71. Solar Power
    64. 72. Fuel efficient cars
    65. 73. Hey…..!!! Its working
    66. 74. Global Warming: Shifting Gears
    67. 75. 2007 Goal: Reductions in CO 2 Per Year Billions of Metric Tons Carbon
    68. 76. BUT
    69. 77. 2007 Reductions in CO 2 Per Year Gigaton Carbon Produce electricity efficiently Use electricity efficiently Vehicle efficiency Solar and Wind Power Biofuels Carbon capture and storage Billions of Metric Tons Carbon Our Goal
    70. 78. SAVE THE EARTH Before its too late
    71. 79. GLOBAL WARMING
