  • Global warming and Greenhouse effectZephaniah BatemanSebastian Robinson

  • Global warming Definition

    Global warming- An increase in the average temperature of the earth's atmosphere. The rise in global temperatures due to an increased greenhouse effect

  • Causes of global warming onlineglobal warming -Carbon Dioxide from Power Plants , Carbon Dioxide Emitted from Cars , Nitrous oxide.

  • Causes for global warming textThe increase of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere.

  • greenhouse effect causescaused by the presence in the atmosphere of gases such as carbon dioxide, water vapor, and methane that allow incoming sunlight to pass through but absorb heat radiated back from the earth's surface. Natural heating caused by gases in our atmosphere trapping heat

  • greenhouse effect online definition greenhouse effect- The phenomenon where by the earth's atmosphere traps solar radiation.

  • Greenhouse effect text definition Natural heating caused by atmospheric gases trapping heat at earths surface.

  • Ramifications of global warming onlineConsequences of global warming, hotter world, dirtier air and water, more severe floods and droughts, and more wildfires.

  • Ramifications of global warming textIf the temperature continues to rise ice caps will melt. Lower areas might experience increased flooding, sea level is rising in certain areas.

  • Ramifications of greenhouse effect onlineThe burning of fossil fuels adds carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. Therefore places the Earth at risk.

  • Ramifications for greenhouse effect textIncreased storm surges leading to greater coastal erosion. Flood frequency and potential damage may increase.

  • Ways to prevent global warming onlineDrive less. Take bikes, walk whenever possible. Consider investing in a hybrid or electric vehicle to help prevent against further global warming. Replace all the light bulbs in and around your home.

  • Ways to prevent global warming textConserving electricityReduce the amount of fossil fuel that must be burned
