Changes Scientific agreement is that human action, principally carbon dioxide outflows, is bringing on an unnatural weather change. Each time we utilize power or gas, we are sending CO 2 outflows to the environment.

Slide 3

Global Warming World before Industrial transformation, 1800 CO 2 level low <280ppm. ~No fossil fuel discharges (oil, coal, gas). We\'ve had a worldwide atmosphere harmony throughout the previous 100,000 years – it resembles we had an exceptionally agreeable cover grew uniquely for us. Presently we have a tremendous cover (brought on by the additional human-made emanations in the air) made of warmth catching, heat-radiating IR nursery gasses.

Slide 6

CO 2 in the air Years: 1960-2000

Slide 7

CO 2 in Atmosphere Years: 1000 - 2100

Slide 8

Earth\'s Surface Temperature Years: 1000 - 2100 How hot it eventually gets relies on upon us.

Slide 9

} Cold because of sulfuric discharges: (1940-1970) which brought on lung growth, asthma & corrosive downpour Global normal temperature Years: 1860-2000

Slide 10

Consequences: Polar tops melt Sea level ascent Extreme temperatures Cyclones/tornadoes Drought/surges Disease Agriculture misfortunes Extinction of creature species, corals, vegetation Worst case situation: stop sea transport line

Slide 11

Kilimanjaro (Tanzania, Africa) after 30 years…

Slide 12

Lake Chad Was the 6 th biggest lake in the World! A study by U. Wisconsin-Madison and NASA\'s EOS, the lake is currently 1/twentieth of the size it was 35 years back. W. Africa (Chad, Niger, Nigeria, & Cameroon), the area has experienced an inexorably dry atmosphere, encountering decrease in downpour since mid 1960s. We are bringing about Extreme neediness in Africa because of our emanations which represents 25% of every single world outflow contrasted with Africa\'s 3%.

Slide 13

Patagonia (Argentina) Longest Glacier in S.A. 1928 2004

Slide 14

Costa Rica First authority lost species because of Global warming: the brilliant frog Female Male

Slide 15

Hurricanes 10 most sultry years ever, happened in the last 14 yrs. 2003 1 st sea tempest ever in the S. Altantic Ocean 2005 most elevated # of sea tempests, most serious, 6 Greek letters 2005 Wilma most grounded sea tempest ever recorded AO Then… 2006 Monica most grounded tropical storm ever recorded Luckily, this year (2006), El Niño diminishes # sea tempests

Slide 16

Icebergs with caverns = broken natural way of life 60% of krill populace slaughtered as a result of this. Krill are little shrimp-like shellfish zooplankton, sustenance for baleen whales, mantas, whale sharks, seals, and a couple seabird animal types

Slide 17

Worst case situation: sudden change IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) Due to change in saltiness, if Artic continues liquefying, this flow could quit, making a little ice age in Europe and North America.

Slide 18

On top of this… New blossoming economies need to experience their own variant of the "American Dream". Case: in China, the conventional bike path was shut to lay route to an additional car path. India is currently likewise thriving monetarily and incredibly expanding their CO 2 discharges.

Slide 19

Potential Solutions Reduce CO 2 emanations Reduce vitality utilization Alternative green force: sun based, wind Reforestation Increase fuel effectiveness; e.g. power device, half breed autos Emission exchanging Kyoto Protocol – marked by 135 countries in Kyoto, Japan to diminish discharges. Not marked by U.S. on the other hand Australia!, the 2 countries with the most astounding outflows.

Slide 20

The Good News is… We can have any kind of effect…

Slide 21

We\'ve done it before!: Ozone Layer Montreal Protocol\'s prohibition on CFCs For years, chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) were the operators - adding to the demolition of the Earth\'s ozone layer. After the Montreal Protocol\'s prohibition on CFCs, somewhat more kindhearted HCFCs supplanted them.. The ozone layer is mending, however there is still a higher rate of skin malignancy and different maladies in the World due to a limited extent by this opening.

Slide 30

Top 11 (cont… ) Consider new apparatuses with Energy Star* MYTH: Not every single new machine are vitality productive!! Check the marks precisely.

Slide 31

Top 11 (cont… ) Transportation represents 67% of oil utilized! Think about purchasing as a little auto or a Hybrid, Use open transportation Eat natural items (better wellbeing, less Br) Consider wind or sunlight based force Use silicone or dull heating skillet Use reusable plastic or fabric espresso channel Use rechargeable batteries Green means it\'s additionally useful for your HEALTH.

Political Issues Oil industry interests, Lobbyists Governments concealing investigative proof (e.g. NASA climatologist, Jim Hansen) Real cost of atomic vitality Should incorporate the expense of waste transfer and the expense of medicinal treatment of potential wellbeing ailments because of radioactive materials. versus expense of clean vitality like sun based or wind.

Slide 35

Take activity! Stop Global Warming

Slide 36

With your assistance… … we can spare the World! We are ONE human race; we just have ONE planet. We should utilize its assets proficiently so we would all be able to profit by it.
