A worldwide temperature alteration: Fact or Fiction? Introduced By: Kenyatta Esters Rhonda Nichols

Slide 2

What is Global Warming? Alludes to a general warming pattern of the earth Possible reasons: Tectonic Astronomical Green house gasses Other Atmospheric conditions

Slide 3

1880-2000 1950-2000 Earths Temperature Fluctuation

Slide 5

Green House Gasses Carbon Dioxide 50% Methane 18% 27x CO2 Nitrous Oxide 6% 150xCO2 Synthetic Gasses (CFC’s) and other 26% 6% CFC10,000x CO2 CFC substitutes 300-5,000xCO2

Slide 6

“Careful estimations have affirmed that CO2 is expanding in the environment and that human exercises are the essential cause… … 31% increments can not be clarified by normal reasons. CO2 fixations are presently likely higher than any found in the in no less than 420,000” EPA Website

Impacts Flooding of Coastal Areas Salt Water Encroachment

Slide 9

Impacts Flooding of Coastal Areas Major urban communities New Orleans  New Atlantis, Miami, Bancock, Netherlands Marsh Everglades vanishing Salt Water Encroachment

Slide 10

Calculate the impact of liquefying ice sheets on ocean level Total Surface Area of Earth 197,000 sq miles 70% sea  138,000 sq miles 30% area 59,000 sq miles 326 million miles3 aggregate water Oceans 317 million Glaciers 7 million Water volume increase 2 million km29 million

Slide 11

Is Global Warming Real ??? Is it a DIRECT outcome of fossil fuel utilization? Do we have a moral commitment to lessen CO 2 outflows?
