What is Global Warming ? is basically the increase in the temperatures of the Earth's atmosphere, land masses and oceans. is when the earth heats up (the temperature rises). It happens when greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, water vapor, nitrous oxide, and methane) trap heat and light from the sun in the earth’s atmosphere, which increases the temperature. sometimes it's difficult to detect which is fact and which is just part of scientific scare tactics.
What global warming cause? Man-made Causes The greenhouse effect Agriculture Increasing of population usage of chemical fertilizers on croplands Deforestation Methane emission from animals Carbon dioxide emission from burning gasoline from transportation Power plants
Environmental Effects Natural System Ecological system Social system effects Food security Habitat inundation
Effects of global warming in the economy Negative economic impact Future economic impacts Positive economic impacts Health Impacts Skin Cancer Hanta virus Malaria
IMPACTS OF GLOBAL WARMING Global warming is melting glaciers in every part of the world, putting millions of people at risk from floods, droughts and shortages of drinking water Precipitation (rain and snowfall) has increased across the globe, on average. Ecosystems will change Less fresh water will be available
Mitigation trying to limit the future effects of anthropogenic climate change. Government Solution To Global Warming- Improve Energy Efficiency Develop Renewable Energy Reduce Gasoline Consumption for Transportation Continue to Phase out CFCs
CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION Global Climate Change is a fact, although there are skeptics in no way a majority group. That is why governments around the world have reacted to this growing threat nearest major climatic changes that may put their economies at risk
