  1. 1. Global Warming<br />By:<br />Tori Bright<br />Cleo Cardona<br />
  2. 2. Definitions of Greenhouse Effect, Climate Change, and Global Warming<br />Greenhouse effect: The greenhouse effect is when short wavelengths of visible light passes through a transparent medium and are absorbed, but the longer wavelengths of the infrared re-radiation from the heated objects are unable to pass through that medium. The trapping of the long wavelengths leads to more heating and higher temperatures.<br />Climate Change: Climate change refers to more than just weather, it refers to seasonal changes over a long period of time.<br />Global Warming: Global warming is the increase in the average temperature due to the effect of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane. <br />
  3. 3. Relation Between Greenhouse Effect, Climate Change, and Global Warming<br />There is a cause and effect relationship between all three subjects. <br />When humans cause an increased amount of greenhouse effect, the Earth traps more heat, causing a change in the Earth’s entire climate. Temperatures all around the world are rising due to this, which is known as global warming. <br />
  4. 4. Global Warming Causes<br />Increase in greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane.<br />Humans burning of fossil fuels, industrial, farming, and deforestation.<br />
  5. 5. Consequences If Not Stopped<br />Sea levels rise <br />Hurricanes become stronger<br />Floods and droughts become more common<br />Changes in ecosystems<br />Less available fresh water<br />Out of sync food chains<br />Ice caps melting<br />Species dying off<br />Trees and plants flowering sooner<br />Intense heat waves<br />
  6. 6. How is Global Warming Impacting the Economy?<br />Extreme weather costing us millions of dollars in for repairs on houses, buildings, government property, etc. <br />Energy prices going up because of the bigger temperature differences (air conditioning/heating)<br />
  7. 7. Ways to Fight Global Warming<br />Use power strips instead of using many outlets<br />Use cold water instead of hot water<br />Use ceiling fans instead of air conditioner or use programmable thermostats <br />Switch light bulbs to fluorescent light bulbs<br />Use energy star products<br />Get involved and speak-up about the topic<br />Drive less and carpool <br />Plant trees and other plants<br />
  8. 8. Basic Arguments Against Global Warming <br />Humans are causing most of global warming because we burn to many fossil fuels.<br />We can’t fix what has already been done, we can only try to improve our actions for the future.<br />Humans have done little damage and global warming is just a natural occurrence.<br />
  9. 9. Our Opinion<br />We believe that humans have made global warming worse then it could be. <br />We have put to many greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and aren’t trying hard enough to reverse what we have done.<br />Many people have different opinions about if global warming is real or not, so it makes it hard for everyone to know how and what to do about it. <br />
