2. What is global warming? Global warming is the rise in theaverage temperature of Earth'satmosphere and oceans 3. Introduction Is the world getting warmer? If so, are the actions of mankind toblame for earths temperatureincreases? What can/should be done about theseissues? 4. Why is global warminghappening? 5. Burning of Fossil FuelsPollution from coal,natural gas, and oil 6. . 7. . 8. . 8 9. Greenhouse Gases. 9 Carbon dioxide combustion of solid waste, fossil fuels (oil, natural gas, andcoal), and wood and wood products Methane : production and transport of coal, natural gas, and oil. Methaneemissions also result from the decomposition of organic wastesin municipal solid waste landfills, and the raising of livestock. Nitrous oxide agricultural and industrial activities, as well as duringcombustion of solid waste and fossil fuels. Hydro Fluoro Carbons (HFCs),Per Fluoro Carbons (PFCs),Sulphur HexaFluoride (SF6), industrial processes. 10. Example of theGreenhouse EffectThe Suns energypasses through thecars windshield.This energy (heat)is trapped insidethe car and cannotpass back throughthe windshield,causing the insideof the car to warmup. 11. 11EffEcts Health Water resources Mountains Forests Deserts Coastal Zones Agriculture International 12. Households are Big Contributors to Climate ChangeOf all greenhouse gasemissions come fromhouseholds: Vehicles Home Heating Electricity 13. so how can Each of usslow global warming now? 14. Simple Things To DoDress lightly when its hot instead of turning upthe air conditioning. Or use a fan.Dress warmly when its cold instead of turningup the heat.Offer to help your parents keep the air filters onyour AC and furnace clean.Walk short distances instead of asking for aride in the car.Plant a tree. R ecycle. 15. RefrigeratorsReplace your old refrigerator witha new Energy Star:Refrigerator release Chloro FloroCarbons [CFC] .1 Chloro Floro Carboncan break 1,00,000 oxygen atoms 16. Drive JUST 10 fewer miles per weekAnnual savings:motor vehicles release large amountof carbondioxide in to atmosphereReduce your garbage by 10% throughgreater recycling or reduced packagingAnnual savings:Wash clothes in cold water onlyAnnual savings:
