6 Temperatures are rising

7 Ancient glaciers are melting

8 Freshwater becomes scarce

9 Erosion and land slides

10 Our Earth is in danger! Hurricanes Famines Lack of Water Extinction of millions of species FloodsDroughts Extreme weather conditions Sealife Extinction Glaciers + polar ice caps melting Sea levels rising Climate Refugees Desertification Food Insecurity Global warming

11 Who is effected? Africa: By 2020, up to 250 million people to be exposed to water stress, desertification & droughts. Famine and mass evictions. Spreading of deadly diseases. Asia: Water stress, desertification, decreased food productivity. Melting of Himalayan glaciers will cause collapse of river systems. Hurricanes. Australia and New Zealand: Significant biodiversity loss by 2020, including sea life extinction. Water stress, droughts. Europe: Extreme weather including increased heat waves, wildfires and reduced crop productivity, as well as heavy rainfalls causing landslides and floods. North America: Heat waves with adverse health impacts. Water stress. Hurricanes. Latin America: By mid- century, projected replacement of tropical forest by savanna in eastern Amazonia. Water stress. Droughts. Small Islands: Deterioration in coastal conditions e.g. beach erosion and coral bleaching. Loss of biodiversity and local resources. Loss of land.

12 Climate Change What‘s causing climate change?


14 Agricultural Fertilization Transportation and energy production – Land use and deforestation Transport and EnergyFactory farming - Burning waste and fossil fuels

15 Power production

16 Transportation

17 Deforestation

18 Factory farming

19 Areas are proportional to historic carbon dioxid emissions from fossil fuel combustion, 1900 – 1990 Industrialized Developing Souce: World Resources Institute, http://ww.wri.org Map by Equator Graphics, Inc. Where do the polluters live?

20 How many Earths would we need? Human Ecological Footprint
