Why should we be concerned about Global Warming?

“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 last millennium have all occurred since 1983.

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

Solutions to the problem…
- Investing in renewable energy. (wind, solar) - Plant more trees. - Built more cool cities projects. - Save electricity and power. - use public transportation. - Eat more organically grown food. - Recycling. - Re- think about your life style.

Conclusion
a huge difference in our future. In my opinion, every one on this planet must take part and work together to find out the quickest, cheapest and most effective way to reduce carbon emissions and overcome this serious threat of Global Warming.

Making small changes in our habits can make
