Science is the search for knowledge ´ How do these combine? Used to understand the physics, chemistry and biology of the Earth. ´ How do we know about climate systems in the past? 1. Early human record 2. Geomorphology 3. Geological record 4. Ice cores -Ice cores can preserve seasonal layering. Studying the chemistry of each layer can give clues about climate change.
Since the developing world would still like to develop. There is some chance that. due to the uncertainties of complex models and the assumptions used to drive them. We already have technologies that can help us on the way Efficiency Renewable Energy Coal-gasification with carbon sequestratio 2. also known as climate change. There is a scientific consensus that human activities are very likely to affect global climate 9. . The IPCC publishes an assessment of the latest scientific data related to climate change about every five years.Top Ten Things to Know About Global Warming 10. The behavioral challenges are much more daunting than the technological ones. We need to make changes for subsequent generations. the consensus is wrong 8. -an international group of scientists that evaluates scientific and technical information related to climate change and global warming (an increase in Earth s surface temperature). -The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) recommends that we avoid dangerous human interference with global climate systems. The Kyoto Protocol will result in only modest emission reductions -The US has not yet ratified this treaty KYOTO PROTOCOL -international treaty adopted in 1997 that sets concrete targets for developed countries to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming. 1. Climate change isn t likely to affect our generation. 7. with this figure set to rise. so far. the developed world must make substantial emissions reductions. -IPCC says 70-80 percent of current levels must be reduced by 2040-2050. Republic Act 8749 (RA 8749) Clean Air Act 4. -IPCC reported for the first time that human activity is the primary cause for global warming. ´ More than 130 countries are party to it. the United States has refused to ratify the treaty. We have 30-40 years to transform industrialized society -Reducing emissions by 70-80 percent is a substantial challenge 3. 6. however. In order to avoid dangerous interference. 5. Ignoring the potential implications of climate change is taking a big risk with a valuable asset. IPCC estimates that we need to hold global emissions about steady.

now part of La Union in the northern part of the Philippines. He had his dog bark and in an instant the fallen house rose up again. he was bathed by women in the Amburayan river. Lam-ang had no problem fulfilling this condition and he and Ines were married. While he was away. Lam-ang found the house of Ines surrounded by many suitors all of whom were trying to catch her attention. Lam-ang dove straight into the mouth of the water monster Berkakan. His rooster crowed and his dog barked and slowly the bones started to move. Lam-ang decided he would go look for him. Ines had Marcos get his bones. After nine months of waiting for his father to return. Namongan thought Lam-ang was up to the challenge but she was sad to let him go. Lam-ang and his wife lived happily ever after with his white rooster and gray dog. The girl's parents witnessed this and called for him. Upon returning to Nalbuan in triumph. This made Ines look out. The rooster expressed the love of Lam-ang. except for one whom he let go so that he could tell other people about Lam-ang's greatness. He also chose his godparents and asked where his father was. which she covered with a piece of cloth. He fell asleep and had a dream about his father's head being stuck on a pole by the Igorot. Back alive. he decided to rest for awhile. He rushed to their village and killed them all. he spoke and asked that he be given the name Lam-ang. It was a tradition to have a newly married man swim in the river for the rarang fish. which caused a nearby house to fall. Unfortunately. They had a son named Lam-ang. It took four people to help Namongan give birth. All the fish died because of the dirt and odor from Lam-ang's body. PARIÑA- . On the way. -ARIANETTE V. During his exhausting journey. There was a young woman named Ines Kannoyan whom Lam-ang wanted to woo. Lam-ang was furious when he learned what had happened to his father.(SUMMARY) OF BIAG NI LAM-ANG Don Juan and his wife Namongan lived in Nalbuan. his son Lam-ang was born. As soon as the baby boy popped out. The parents agreed to a marriage with their daughter if Lam-ang would give them a dowry valued at double their wealth. another suitor of Ines whom he fought and readily defeated. She lived in Calanutian and he brought along his white rooster and gray dog to visit her. He had his rooster crow. Don Juan went to the mountains in order to punish a group of their Igorot enemies. Lam-ang met his enemy Sumarang. Before Lam-ang was born.

UNIFYING THEMES of Environmental Education- y Nature knows best. Population Growth and Carrying Capacity y An ecosystem can support only a given number of individuals at a given time when the carrying capacity level is exceeded. the usefulness of the place is reduced Finiteness of Resources y Most resources are nonrenewable. . Change y Everything changes. Interdependence and Interconnectedness y Everything is connected to everything else. They are not masters but stewards of the Earth and its resources. y What one does affects the other. Nature has its own value regardless of its value to humans. y Diversity increases resilience and stability of systems. Material Cycle y Everything goes somewhere. Sustainable Development y Economic activities may be pursued but not at the expense of a degraded environment. They have to be used prudently and wisely Stewardship y Humans are part of nature. When there is too much of anything in one place. y It has its own laws and processes to maintain itself. an imbalance in the system occurs. directly or indirectly. y Some changes improve the quality of the environment.Balance of Nature .
