© Fairtrade 2012 Fairtrade products carry this Mark What is climate change? 1. The earth absorbs sunbeams 2. The earth reflects some of the energy back 3. This is reflected again by the atmosphere CO 2 4. Reflected by the surface and becomes trapped in our atmosphere 5. The layer of gas and steam prevents the heat leaving the atmosphere causing warming Sun CO 2
