Worldwide Climate ChangeSlide 2
GCC – The Central Issue Global Climate change alludes to an arrangement of ecological worries that are identified with human movement, basically Global warming The "Ozone Hole"Slide 3
Global Warming Global warming alludes to the slow increment of the Earth\'s temperature as a result of vitality caught by the Earth\'s air The maintenance of the warmth by the air is known as the nursery impact.Slide 4
How the Greenhouse impact works Heat, as short wave infrared radiation is gotten by the Earth from the sun This warmth is reflected pull out into space as long-wave infrared radiation. For whatever length of time that this vitality data yield trade is in balance, we stick with it temperature (comprehensively) If something adjusts it, we either warm up or chill off. (Nurseries don\'t work along these lines)Slide 6
Scientific Controversy over the nursery impact There is none. This is acknowledged by mainstream researchers as unmistakably solid. It is not hypothesis, it is a piece of the experimental "standard" There is, notwithstanding, worry that the utilization of the term is unseemly Bad Science - GreenhouseSlide 7
Permanent gasses Permanent gasses in the environment by percent are: Nitrogen 78.1% Oxygen 20.9% (Note that these two perpetual gasses together contain 99% of the climate) Other changeless gasses: Argon 0.9% Neon 0.002% Helium 0.0005% Krypton 0.0001% Hydrogen 0.00005%Slide 8
Variable gasses in the air Variable gasses in the air and common rate qualities are: Water vapor 0 to 4% Carbon Dioxide 0.035% Methane 0.0002% Ozone 0.000004% CFC\'s (not normally happening)Slide 9
Greenhouse Gasses Several gasses go about as warmth sinks in the air CO 2 CFCs Methane Water vaporSlide 10
Relative worries over Greenhouse gasses CO 2 is the biggest concern, being the biggest constituent of the air Methane holds more warmth, but since it is artificially more dynamic, its air length is around 10 years CFC\'s hold a great deal more warmth, and keep going quite a while, yet at the same time are a littler parcel Also being lessened because of Montreal conventionSlide 11
Atmospheric CO 2 Atmospheric CO 2 is accepted to have been around 280 ppm (parts per million) in the pre-modern age. This figure depends on evaluations of carbon sinks and flux, alongside the topographical record. (ice center specimens, rises in golden, and so on)Slide 12
CO 2 The most copious nursery gas Results from Combustion of fossil powers Gas best fuel Oil medium Coal most exceedingly terrible Based on proportion of carbon to hydrogen in the atoms Burning of vegetation/deforestation Reduced uptake in plants/deforestationSlide 13
Mauna Loa CO 2 perceptions The information on climatic CO 2 gathered by Keeling at the Mauna Loa observatory is said to be the most generally seen information set on the planet. It was begun in 1955 CO 2 was at 313ppm then It is at 375ppm now (2002), an expansion of 16.5% in 47 yearsSlide 14

Carbon Sources and Sinks Places that give carbon are called stores. Places where carbon settles are called sinks Exchanges amongst sinks and supplies are called fluxes. There are four noteworthy supplies for carbon The environment The seas The biosphere Fossil fills Ultimately the outside layer shapes the essential sink for carbon by means of the profound seas to carbonate rock and fossil powersSlide 18
Carbon Sinks - 2001Slide 19

Methane Sources Coal mining Oil creation Organic disintegration Animal processing Resident in air around 10 yearsSlide 21
CFCs Nasty little gasses – just anthropogenic CFCs don\'t happen in nature – the Fluorine bond is to solid to break actually. CFCs originate from Refrigerants Styrofoam, frothing operators Cleaning hardware Spray fuelsSlide 22
Water VaporSlide 23
Impacts of Climate Change Temperature rise Precipitation Soil Moisture Changing Habitats Sea Level Rise Ocean CurrentsSlide 24
Temperature Rise Estimates are in the 1.5 ° to 4.5° C range in view of G eneral C irculation M odels (GCM) of the environment. Each degree C is equivalent to around 100 miles of scope. This implies WV will have the biological communities of North GA/SC Rising temperature implies rising AC use, which implies rising CO2 utilization, quickening nursery impact This is a positive input circleSlide 25
Global Temperature changeSlide 26
Global Temp Rise – Take 2Slide 27
Feedback circles Positive The change expands the procedure driving the change Polar ice pack melt As the ocean ice gets more slender because of warming, the warmth trade between warm ocean water beneath the ice and cool air over the ice speeds up, prompting quicker dissolving of the ice. The most recent 25 Years – NASDA Video Negative The change delivers a counterbalancing or equilibrating process As temperature rises, dissipation builds, prompting expanded cloud development, expanding albedo, consequently bringing down temperatureSlide 28
Icebergs Glacier stream Melting gives grease Increases snow itself can bring about pressure – bringing about quicker stream. (A stress if winters are hotter, however blanketed because of expanded water vapor) They are progressively of concern National Naval Ice Center Ice Berg battering ramSlide 30
Antarctic IceSlide 31
Weather Climate change is not an issue of a couple of degrees, it is one of progress in climate designs Precipitation changes climatic subsystems Ecosystem change Coral reefs BleachingSlide 32
Changes in Precipitation Changing Patterns of precipitation/dry spell Extreme Precipitation occasions Droughts Storms - flooding Snowfall Hurricanes In a hotter world, more tropical storms, longer season, and all the more capable tempestsSlide 33
Soil Moisture Increased temperature implies a diminished ruin dampness unless precipitation builds Western out of control firesSlide 34
Changing Habitats Changes in living space Migration designs Ecosystem Changes in species populaces can swell through a biological system.Slide 35
Ocean Fisheries Pacific Salmon declining sharply Anchovy harvest in SA Responsive to el Nino occasions Pacific TunaSlide 36
Sea Level Rise Thermal development of water Arctic Ice pack Glaciers Greenland Western AntarcticSlide 37
Thermal Expansion of Water particles get bigger as they get hotter. Ocean level ascents around 1cm for each .1 ° C Hence ocean level has ascended around 10cm since 1900, alongside a worldwide mean ocean level temp ascent of around 1 ° Thus ocean level may ascend by 15-45cm because of warm extensionSlide 38
Artic Ice Pack Adds 0 to ocean level ascent Ice drifts, and uproots its weight, consequently volume will stay consistentSlide 39
Glaciers Almost all ice sheets have subsided in a century ago Possible that expanded precipitation may bring about expanded glaciations on South shaft Examples of Glacier subsidenceSlide 40
Western Antarctica The Western Ice packs in Antarctica hold inconceivable amounts of water. Expanded snowfall may really quicken glaciation Sea Level ascent of 21 feet (7 meters) conceivable in the following centurySlide 41
The frightening stuff Loss of both Antacrcic and Greenland icy masses Sea level ascent of ~75\' Global Dimming Accelerating warming rapidly Ocean momentum interruptionSlide 42
Ocean Currents Ocean ebbs and flows are liable to changes in temperature and saltiness Record demonstrates changes in: Gulf stream Alaska Gyre California Current off focal North AmericaSlide 43

The Montreal convention Due to the Montreal convention, CFCs will be to a lesser extent a worry, over the long haul Outlawed production, deal or utilization of CFCs in numerous casesSlide 46
Why was Montreal fruitful? The Montreal Protocol happened in light of the fact that: Scientific concession to issue (upper air CFC\'s pulverize upper air ozone (O 3 ++) . Innovative substitutions are monetarily practical. The organization which held the permit on the culpable chemicals (Freon 11,12, and so forth) likewise held more up to date licenses on those substitutes (DuPont).Slide 47
Will Montreal happen for environmental change? No! Investigative agreement won\'t rise until it is past the point of no return The champs and failures have extensive stakes. Innovative substitutes are not accessible, or will be financially restrictive.Slide 48
The Tragedy of the Commons Global Climate Change is the Tragedy of the Commons at its most worldwide expression N –\'person\' Not to any countries point of preference to unilateraly lessen outflowsSlide 49
Policy Options Sequestration Practical to sequester power plant CO 2 ? Take a gander at the weight Biological means TerrestialSlide 50
Carbon Tax Price directs utilization And little else does!Slide 51
Others Nuclear Power? Biofuels Disrupt nourishment costs Not carbon nonpartisan – deliver more CO2 on the off chance that you incorporate creation costs! Geothermal Wind Solar FusionSlide 52
