What is Global Warming?
Global warming is when the earth

heats up.

It happens when greenhouse gases such as


carbon dioxide ,water vapor ,nitrous oxide
and methane
trap heat and light from the sun in the earth’s
atmosphere, which increases the
temperature.
Greenhouse Effect
The Sun’s energy passes through the
car’s windshield.

This energy (heat) is trapped inside the


car and cannot pass back through the
windshield, causing the inside of the car
to warm up.
WHY IS GLOBAL WARMING
HAPPENING?
Rapid CO2 Increases
Burning of Fossil Fuels in plants,
factories, cars and houses
Methane from rice paddies both ends of
animals, garbage in landfills and mining
operations
Nitrous oxide from fertilizers and
other chemicals
Effects of Global Warming
 Polar ice caps melting

•Raise sea
levels.
•Raise
temperatures
•Affect Wildlife
Wildlife Effects
 Polar Bears
Require pack ice to live
Might eventually go extinct in the wild
 Sea turtles
Breed on the same islands as
their birth
Could go extinct on some islands
as beaches are flooded
 Other species may go extinct as rainfall patterns
change throughout the world

POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS
TO GLOBAL WARMING

TOGETHER
WE CAN STOP Global Warming!
Mitigation of Global Warming
 Conservation
Reduce energy needs
Recycling
 Alternate energy sources
Nuclear
Wind
Geothermal
Hydroelectric
Solar
Fusion
• Conserve electricity!
DO NOT leave appliances
on standby

• Turn off the lights when you leave.

 Keep rooms cool by closing the


 blinds, shades, or curtains.


•Avoid turning up the air conditioner.
Instead dress lightly or use a fan.

•Keep the air filters on your AC clean.

•Walk short distances instead of


asking for ride in the car.
