“Why should we be concerned about Global
Warming?”

Many people consider that Global Warming is the greatest


environmental threat of the 21st Century.
However, during the 80s and early 90s scientists argued
about the causes and effects of global warming.
So In the late 1990s scientists reached Agreement that
global warming was a cause for worry .
So, why should you be concerned about global warming?

What is the Global Warming ?
Earth is naturally insulated by a delicate
balance of heat-trapping “ Greenhouse”
gases in the atmosphere.
When the sun shines on the Earth, some of
the heat is absorbed, keeping earth warm
enough to support life.

Global Warming Facts
• The 1990s were the warmest decade since 1861,
when thermometer records began.
• 1998 was the warmest year on record.
• The temperature increase of the 20th Century
was
the largest of any century in the last 1,000 years.
• The ten hottest years since the beginning of the

Effects of global warming
 Increase of temperature on the earth by
about 3° to 5° C (34° to 41° Fahrenheit) by
the year 2100.
 Rise of sea levels by at least 25 meters
(82 feet) by the year 2100
 Arctic Ice Cap Will Be Gone by 2100
 By 2100 Greenland Glacier Likely to be

Locked Into Complete Melting
