Then,listen to the video and put the words from the box in the corresponding parts of the dialogue.hurricanes and weather – rise and cover – Global Warming – destroying forestshuman society – plant trees - fossil fuels – greenhouse gases::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::“Global Warming: An Adventure Of Eco-man”Eco-man: Hi there kids. My name is Eco-man. I protectEarth environment to keep you safe. I’m here to talk about
Global Warming
.Timmy: But Eco-man, what is global warming?Eco-man: Well Timmy, global warming is a problem caused bythe evil
greenhouse gases
.Timmy: Who??Eco-man: The greenhouse gases, Timmy. Nitrous Oxide, Water vapor, Methane, andCarbon Dioxide.Timmy: Ohhh! Where do they come from, Eco-man?Eco-man: You see, Timmy. Many things help to empower the evil greenhouse gases.Some come from
destroying forests
and using fertilizers. Others come from farmanimals. But most gases get their powers from
human society
.Timmy: What do you mean?
Eco-man: When humans use
fossil fuels
to run cars or create power, the emissionspower the greenhouse gases.Timmy: Why are the greenhouse gases bad? I don’t understand!Eco-man: Of course you don’t Timmy. You see… When the sun shines down on Earth…Sun: Hi there.Eco-man: …the atmosphere, which surrounds the earth, helps keeping the heat from thesun to make us warm. This is called the Greenhouse effect, and it occurs naturally.However, when we burn too much fossil fuels, the greenhouse gases are able to block theescaping sunlight and keep it trapped inside the atmosphere, this is called “GlobalWarming”.Timmy: But, Eco-man, Why is global warming bad?Eco-man: Well Timmy. Global warming could leave us all in a figurative hole, as deep asmy butt-chin.Timmy: Do you mean that greenhouse gases want to hurt… ME?Eco-man: Yes Timmy, YOU! If global warming is allowed to continue the future can be avery different place. We could have worse
hurricanes and weather 
, and crops may dieout in certain parts of the world. If higher temperatures melt icebergs, then the sea levelcan
rise and cover 
entire sections of land. Global warming can harm millions of people,and you are one of them, Timmy.Timmy: Then, how can we stop global warming?Eco-man: Well Timmy, the road to solving this crisis is long and hard.Timmy: Ohhhh!Eco-man: Indeed. We need to work together to
plant trees
, petition the government, anduse less fossil fuels. Together, we can help stop the greenhouse gases and protect theEarth for years to come.:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
