Title: GLOBAL WARMING


1
Will Earth still be home for us in coming years?
GLOBAL WARMING!
Should you care?
2
Our planet is heating up and we are
responsible
  • Unless we take steps NOW
  • to curb global warming,
  • our way of life,
  • our future, and
  • our family are all in
  • GRAVE DANGER.

3
What is Global Warming?
Global Warming is defined as the increase of the
temperature on Earth. As the Earth is getting
hotter, disasters like hurricanes, droughts and
floods are getting more frequent.

How it works?

8
When did the problem begin?
The problems began when human activities created
released more gases in the atmosphere than
are necessary.
9
1 Burning natural gas, coal oil raise the
level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere
accelerate the warming effect.
10
2 Many factories produce long-lasting gases that
contribute to the global warming
11
3 Population growth accelerates global warming
as more more people use fuels for heat,
transportation manufacturing
12
4 Intensive farming leads to global warming
Some farming practices use of fertilizers
produce gases that trap heat more than Carbon
Dioxide. For instance, Nitrous Oxide, found in
pesticides can retain 300 times more heat than
CO2.
13
To decrease your carbon footprint,
you can start with your dinner plate.
A carbon footprint is a measure of the amount of
greenhouse gases produced by human activities.
  • A U.N. report found that 18 of
  • global warming emissions come from raising
  • That's about 40 more
    than all the trucks,
  • cars, planes all the
    forms of transport
  • (13) and all the
    homes offices in the
  • world put together
    (8).

chickens, cattle, pigs, other animals for food.
14
Meat industry consumes more environmental
resources
  • It contributes to land degradation, climate
    change
  • air pollution, water shortage and water
    pollution.
  • Animals such as cows sheep emit huge amount
  • of methane due to flatulence and burping.
  • "The released methane", the scientists say, "has
  • 23 times the global warming potential of CO2."

15
  • In the absence of demand for meat
  • there is no more need for breeding
  • millions of animals for daily slaughter.

The reversal of global warming will be a
certainty.
16
5 Sawing off the branch we are sitting on
Deforestation is Choking the Earth. 34 million
acres of trees, the size of Italy, are cut each
year.
17
Forests are vital for absorbing storing the
world's carbon dioxide (CO2). When trees are cut
burnt the damage is two-fold The world's
capacity to absorb CO2 is reduced. Large
amounts of stored carbon are released back into
the atmosphere.
18
Global warming will kill BILLIONS this Century
Green house gases can stay in the atmosphere for
hundreds and thousands of years.
Here are few DEADLIEST effects of global
warming..
19
A Spread of infectious disease
Global Warming leads to 150,000 deaths every year
These numbers could double by 2020
As the globe warms, disease-carrying mosquitoes
rodents spread, infecting people. Outbreaks of
Dengue fever, Malaria, Chikingunia, Allergies
Asthma have already started affecting daily
lives.
20
B More Intense Hurricanes are on the Way
  • The oceans are getting warmer, stronger
  • hurricanes calamities like tsunami are
  • getting more frequent.

21
C Increased intensity of droughts heat waves
22
D Economic consequences
Natural calamities do billions of money in damage
disease outbreaks cost money to treat and
control.
23
E Polar ice caps are melting
Sea levels are rising
24
There are 5,773,000 cubic miles of water in
glaciers and if they melt today the seas
would rise about 230 feet. The ice caps are
fresh water when they melt they will
desalinate the ocean, i.e. make it less salty.
This effect will alter ocean currents
causing unnatural weather conditions
Temperature rise will endanger several species of
animals. Ice caps reflect excess sunlight
back into space to maintain favorable
weather conditions. With the ice caps gone less
energy will be reflected causing further
temperature increase.
25
F The oceans are like giant storage heaters
Oceans trap heat and absorb Carbon dioxide. They
are like time-bombs, masking the real effects of
the Carbon dioxide we have been releasing into
the atmosphere. Constant disturbance of the sea
currents is a threat awaiting to unleash.
26
G We will lose drinking water
  • As sea levels rise,
  • sea water will invade
  • coastal groundwater,
  • making it salty
  • hence undrinkable.

27
H Food will cost as much as gold
  • The threat to future food supplies
  • from climate change weighs heavily
  • on an expected world population
  • of 9 billion people by 2050.

28
Is our blue planet turning DRY?
-Out of all the water on this planet, only 2.5
of it is freshwater. Most is derived from
glaciers. -Himalayan glaciers are receding by
10-15 meters per year. -In India, the
Gangotri glacier is receding at an average rate
of 23 meters per year. -This will first increase
the volume of water in rivers causing,
widespread flooding. Then in a few decades this
situation will REVERSE and the water levels in
rivers will decline affecting millions living
around them.
29
Coastal Flooding
  • A NASA high-tech aerial survey shows that Global
  • warming is melting 50 billion tons of ice in a
    year
  • from the Greenland ice sheet.
  • This is increasing the likelihood of coastal
    flooding
  • around the world.

30
How does an Individual make an IMPACT on the
worlds biggest environmental problem?
Working at the individual level, stabilizing the
climate is a challenge but not an impossible
task. Climate scientists say that planting more
and more trees are quick, easy and cheap ways to
prevent further GLOBAL WARMING.

32
Why plant trees?
-Reduce Global Warming -Improve the ground
water level -Prevent soil erosion -Promote the
ecosystem -Reduce pollution -Improve soil
fertility
33
  • The Art of Living is a multi-faceted non-profit
  • organization that offers life-transforming
    programs
  • in over 144 countries. It has undertaken many
    projects
  • out of which one is Tree plantation to help
    reduce
  • GLOBAL WARMING.

Earthquake in Chengdu, (China), Virginia Tech
Campus Shootings (USA), Vidharbha Farmer
Suicides (India), Relief in times of War
  Unrest (Kashmir, Lebanon, Iraq and Israel),
