Slide 2

History: Development of the Throw-Away Culture 1950s:

Slide 3

History: Anti-Litter & Anti-Pollution Campaigns Begin 1960s: Espera De Corti Iron Eyes Cody

Slide 4

History: Earth Day, Birth of “Environmental Movement” 1970s

Slide 5

Current Events: We have Impacted the Planet Its about more than litter and contamination It has turned into an issue of on a very basic level adjusting the atmosphere on the whole planet Global warming will raise the general normal temperature, however that will change designs so that a few zones get wetter, some drier, and some really get colder, for example, Northern Europe if the Atlantic Gulf Stream is again disturbed

Slide 6

Is Global Climate Change Real? Yes!

Slide 7

UN International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC): Trends in Conclusions 1990 Uncertainties and some proof. 1995 “Evidence recommends a recognizable human impact on worldwide climate.” 2001 “Most warming of the previous 50 years is likely (>66%) inferable from human activities.” 2007 “Warming is unequivocal, most warming in the previous 50 years is likely (90%) because of expansions in nursery gases.” The Physical Basis of Climate Change

Slide 8

Global Climate Change is Speeding Up Since the IPCC started, researchers have recorded “much more grounded patterns in environmental change ,” like a late dissolving of polar ice that had not been anticipated . “If there’s no activity before 2012, that’s past the point of no return. What we do in the following a few years will focus our future. This is the characterizing moment.” IPCC Chair Rajendra Pachauri — researcher and financial analyst

IPCC Summary of Findings

Slide 10

Actual Changes Show “Human Forcings” (Impacts) Exceed “Natural Forcings” Computer models think about changes expected through characteristic effects (sunlight based and volcanoes) alone with those that incorporate human effects, and both with real watched changes. Real perceptions best match the models that incorporate human effect. Models utilizing both “natural” and anthropogenic (human) forcings Models utilizing just “natural” forcings Observations Figure SPM. 4 ©IPCC

Global Impacts: Example, Tienamen Square, Beijing, China A man flying a kite in Tiananmen Square last Boxing Day. Contamination levels on a common day in Beijing are five times above World Health Organization benchmarks for wellbeing, and are more awful in the mid year, stressing Olympic competitors. Three million autos and coal-let go processing plants, steel factories and high rise constructs all through the city have created the brown haze. To ‘clean’ the air for the Olympics, Chinese powers will take 1m autos off the street and are shutting plants a month ahead of time. Photo: Oded Balilty/AP

Sea Ice 2003

Slide 14

Sea Ice 2007 uncovered one million square miles of untamed water - six Californias - more than the normal since satellites began estimations in 1979.

Slide 15

This Just In: In 2007 the IPCC anticipated 2042 as a 35% diminishment, not 2007: Complete cold melt would not happen until after 2100 2007 What Actually Happened, 35% Melt by 2007: Complete Arctic Melt now Predicted by 2013, or even 2008)

Slide 16

And This Just In: 160 square miles of Antarctica’s Wilkins ice rack has been lost subsequent to the end of February, 2008 leaving the ice inside now ‘hanging by a thread’. “We anticipated it would happen, however it\'s happened twice as quick as we predicted.” Professor David Vaughan of the British Antarctic Survey (BAS). The area based ice that was kept down by the ocean ice is presently open to slipping into the sea and softening.

Slide 17

Local Impacts: Sea Level Rise SEA LEVEL RISE IN CALIFORNIA: Sea level ascent gives a physical measure of conceivable maritime reaction to environmental change. This pointer demonstrates the rising pattern in ocean level measured at two California stations: San Francisco and La Jolla. Long haul information from 10 of 11 California stations show increments in ocean level at different rates. The ascent in worldwide ocean level is credited to the softening of mountain icy masses and ice sheets far and wide and the warm extension of sea water. Ocean level ascent is not another wonder, having been a noteworthy common part of waterfront change all through time. Contrasts in ocean level ascent along the coast can happen on account of nearby geographical strengths, for example, land subsidence and plate tectonic action. Then again, concern the rate of ocean level ascent may increment with potentially expanded an unnatural weather change. http://co-ops.nos.noaa.gov

Slide 19

Local Impacts: Invasive Species Coastal groups environmental change Humboldt squid (which can grow up to 7’ long) have spread up the California coast as sea waters warm up. They eat neighborhood fish. "It\'s the most recent in a long arrangement of awful news for fishermen," said Lou Zeidberg, Stanford University.

Slide 20

Layers of Change Climate change is a “macro” consequence of human conduct on our planet and ourselves. Air contamination, water contamination, increments in squanders, including dangerous squanders hurt our wellbeing specifically, and change the earth as well. The science just defies the way that impacts we consider as little and nearby additionally make macr worldwide changes. Exhaust cloud not just damages our lungs straightforwardly, it affects the planet as well.

Slide 22

Climate-Sensitive Diseases Human incited environmental change "is prone to have colossal and basically antagonistic effects on human wellbeing, with critical loss of life." 2007 IPCC Report Harvard Medical School scientists have connected late U.S. flare-ups of dengue ("breakbone") fever, intestinal sickness, hantavirus and different ailments to environmental change.

Slide 23

Climate-Sensitive Diseases Increased ocean level and ocean surface temperatures can prompt higher occurrence of water-borne irresistible and poison related sicknesses, for example, cholera and shellfish harming; Zooplankton multiply in hotter water temperatures; are a cholera bearer. Cholera slaughtered 120,000 overall individuals in 1995, generally kids. Encephalitis, another ailment with solid connections to hotter temperatures, is on the ascent. Since 1987 California, Arizona, Texas, Florida, Mississippi, New Orleans, and Colorado have had significant episodes.

Slide 25

Old Diseases in New Places Paul Epstein, MD, worked in Africa, now at Harvard Medical School, said researchers haven’t been sufficiently concerned. "Insects are impeccably delicate to temperature changes.” "Things we anticipated to happen in 2080 are occurring in 2006. What we didn\'t get is the manner by which quick and how huge it is, and the extent to which the organic frameworks would react. Our oversight was in underestimation.” www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/substance/article/2006/05/04/AR2006050401931.html

Slide 26

Old Diseases in New Places Disease-conveying mosquitoes can now make due in new places. Mosquitoes that convey dengue fever infections were constrained to rises beneath 3,300 feet yet now show up at 7,200 feet in the Andes of South America. Dengue Fever has re-rose in the Caribbean. Jungle fever has been distinguished in new higher-height ranges in Indonesia. Maladies like West Nile Virus now spread more distant when they find the opportunity (e.g., by means of aircrafts)

Slide 27

Spread of Tropical Diseases: West Nile Virus Example 1999 to 2007: West Nile Virus is spread by mosquitoes that had the capacity attack the U.S. what\'s more, even into Canada as little changes in climate made it less demanding for them to make due in these new areas. Wellspring of Maps: http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvbid/westnile/surv&control.htm (Click on “Human Incidence Maps”) “California Cases & Deaths” alludes to the aggregate number of West Nile Virus cases and passings in California.

Slide 28

1999 California Cases & Deaths = 0 & 0 West Nile infection maps reflect reconnaissance reports discharged by state and neighborhood wellbeing divisions to CDC\'s ArboNET framework for open dispersion. Guide demonstrates the conveyance of human neuroinvasive ailment (encephalitis and/or mening
