WHAT'S THE GLOBAL WARMING?

The Reality of Global Warming

OUR EARTH IS IN STATE OF CRISIS AND WE'RE THE CAUSE...
1. We pollute the air
2. We fill the land with waste
3. Lethal fuel emission for our vehicles

THE CONSEQUENCES...


1. Our glaciers are melting
2. Our cities are flooding
3. The Climate is changing
4. Our lakes are drying
5. Our ocean’s temperatures are rising
6. Hurricanes are intensifying
7. Rainfall is increasing
8. Record setting heat temperatures are at a dangerous high
9. Global warming is upsetting the balance of nature
10. Many species are facing the threat of extinction

MORE CATASTROPHIC EVENTS WILL OCCUR IN THE FUTURE...


Our glaciers are melting fast
Many coast cities will be under water because the world's oceans level will increase

WE NEED TO MAKE A CHANGE!


1. Recycle and Reuse
2. Consider alternative energy methods
3. Save power and conserve household energy
4. Reduce your litter and Reuse plastic bags
5. Use environment friendly cleaning products
6. Use low or zero emissions vehicles to get you where you need go
7. Considering using public transport

GLOBAL WARMING is when the greenhouse effect gets stronger, the Earth’s average temperature rises. The conditions on Earth start to change.

Many organizations study climate change and global warming. The most important is IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change).
Experts predict climate will drastically change the world as we know it.

WHAT CAN WE DO TO BE ECO-FRIENDLY ?



The Kyoto Protocol
Most governments are worried about rising greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere, and th effect they may have.

In 1997, representatives from 160 countries met in Kyoto, Japan to create the Kyoto Protocol. This is a agreeement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 5.2% less than 1990 by the year 2012.


Alternative energy


Anything that comes from Earth is a natural resource. Resources such as wind, water, sunlight, and plants are renewable resources.

Renewable resources can be replaced or reused.



  1. The Sun's energy is turned into power by the solar panels.
  2. Natural heat from beneath Earth's surface is the geothermal energy.
  3. Hydroelectric power stations, flowing water from a dam, gernerate power.
  4. Wind farms and wave power use the motion of the sea or air to move the huge turbines.



SAVING ENERGY



  1. Switching off the lights when leaving a room.
  2. Turning off the TV, stereo,video, DVD player when you've finished using instead of leaving standby mode.
  3. Turning down your central heating thermostat by as little as one degree.

CLEANING UP THE ROADS

All over the world, the cars, planes...polluted and relase a lot of carbon- dioxide. Instead, there are cars with hydrogen-powered.
