  1. 1. Global Warming<br />By: Linsey Moyer and Noelle Young<br />
  2. 2. Climate Vocabulary<br />Greenhouse effect- the heating of Earth’s surface and atmosphere from solar radiation being absorbed and emitted by the atmosphere, mainly by water vapor and carbon dioxide.<br />Climate Change- the heating and cooking of the earth. This occurs over either short or long periods of time all over the world.<br />Global Warming-the unusually rapid increase in Earth’s average temperature over the past century, due to the greenhouse gases released by people burning fossil fuels.<br />
  3. 3. Relations<br />Heating and cooling of the Earth can be caused by the greenhouse effect, climate change, and global warming. Burning fossil fuels pours out greenhouse gases at a life threatening rate causing global warming.<br />
  4. 4. Global Warming Causes<br />Pollution by humans (cars, factories, etc.)<br />The Industrial Revolution<br />CO2 entering Earths atmosphere and effecting greenhouse gas levels<br />
  5. 5. Consequences of Global Warming<br />Melting ice caps<br />Effects rainfall<br />Amplifies coastal erosion<br />Lengthens the growing seasons<br />Alters ranges of some infectious diseases<br />
  6. 6. Economy<br />Global warming has caused abnormal growing seasons because of the CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere which has made crops, because of this prices have raised.<br />
  7. 7. Ways to fight Global Warming<br />Less fossil fuels<br />Eliminating factories<br />Lessoning waste pollution<br />Replacing fuels with electric generators <br />
  8. 8. Arguments <br />That the Earth naturally changes over time.<br />That the Earth is releasing heat into the ocean.<br />Climate has changed in the past without human intervention.<br />The climate models are just models on a computer screen and not reliable.<br />
  9. 9. Opinions<br />Noelle- “I don’t really think global warming exists. If you look at the history of the earth it heats and cools on its own naturally and adapts to all of the climates.”<br />Linsey- “My opinion on global warming is that humans have some part to do with it. With the increase in CO2 I think that the human pollution has a part in that. But I agree with Noelle that the Earth does heat and cool’s on it’s own naturally.”<br />
