Title: What can We do About Global Warming?

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

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

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

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

How much does the ordinary population know about
  • 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.

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

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

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
