Title: What can We do About Global Warming?


1
What can We do About Global Warming?
  • By Darlene Tesseyman
  • Samantha Thomas
  • Olga Khizver

2
What is Global Warming?
  • Global Warming is the increase in Earths average
    temperature that occurs because of greenhouse
    gases.

3
What causes Global Warming?
  • Global warming is caused from fossil fuels which
    are greenhouse gases such as methane, carbon
    dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide, and fluorocarbons.
  • These gases allow sunlight to enter the
    atmosphere, and when the sunlight strikes the
    earths surface it is reflected back towards
    space as heat.
  • This entrapment of heat is called the greenhouse
    effect.

4
How do our communities contribute to this problem?
  • We use and do harmful things that emit harmful
    gases into the air that deplete the ozone layer
    such as
  • Hair spray
  • Air conditioners
  • We burn coal to generate electricity
  • Cars
  • We can also recycle
  • Paper
  • Metal
  • And Other nonrenewable, recyclable products

5
How much does the ordinary population know about
it?
  • Ordinary people know very little about global
    warming- basically what the news tells you.
  • However, it goes much deeper than that. Most
    people dont think about the future of our planet
    Earth and how global warming is depletes the
    ozone layer.

6
What types of green gases are frequent/abundant/co
mmon in our community?
  • Examples of greenhouse gases in our community
    are
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Methane
  • Nitrous oxide

7
How much do we know about the Kyoto Protocol?
  • The Kyoto Protocol agreed on by governments at a
    United Nations Conference in Kyoto, Japan. It was
    signed to reduce the amount of greenhouses gases
    emitted by developed countries.
  • However the United States did not sign this
    agreement.

8
What can we do to participate in the solution?
  • To help reduce global warming you can
  • Use solar panels
  • Stop using cars that emit harmful gases into the
    Earths atmosphere
  • Help put more carbon on Earth by planting more
    trees and help preserve the ones we already have
