Round 2
2 Questions for each group.
Q 1 Human CO2 emissions are small compared with
natural CO2 exchange. True or False
a) True
b) False
Fact 1It is true that human emissions of CO2 are
a small percentage of the total carbon cycled
through plants, soils, rocks, the oceans and the
air. But they are not insignificant - since 1750,
the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide
has increased by 31.
Q 2 Cows are guilty of speeding up global
warming. Fact or fiction?

b) Fiction
Fact 2Methane is the second most significant
greenhouse gas and cows are one of the greatest
methane emitters. Their grassy diet and multiple
stomachs cause them to produce methane, which
they exhale with every breath.

Australia2. People's Republic of China 3.
India4. Japan5. South Korea 6. United States
Q 4 The Kyoto Protocol is the key international
agreement that aims to slow down man-made
emissions of greenhouse gases. Under the Kyoto
Protocol, there are 2 categories of Parties
Annex 1 and non-Annex 1. Annex 1 Parties are
those developed countries which have greenhouse
gas emission reduction targets to meet between
2008-2012. The non-Annex 1 countries do not have
such targets.Singapore is a non-Annex 1 country.
a) True
b) False
Q 5 Manmade/Anthropogenic CO2 is the main cause
of global warming. True /False
