Transcript of Global Warming
What causes global warming?
One big cause of global warming is co2 or in other words carbon dioxide. Co2 is created when we burn fossil fuels. Some fuels we burn are coal and oil. Something else that contributes to global warming is deforestation. Deforestation is when humans cut down loads of trees. Trees are important because they keep our air clean and if we cut them down, then we will lose one of our greatest defenses against the air pollution that is being caused by global warming
what is the effect of global warming?
Since the gas barrier is trapping the heat of the sun in our atmosphere, our planet heats up tremendously which can cause other problems. One big problem is loss of habitat int the arctic, because of melting ice sheets and glaciers. continuous melting could also cause sea level rise. Many cities wont be able to defend themselves against flooding. One last effect is poor air quality. Some scientists say that young children, the elderly and anyone with a serious illness are likely to get hit harder by extreme temperatures.
There are many different solutions here are some. One solution for flooding is to build houses that float on water. Another would be to build a super dam or a wall surrounding the city. Other people think about how to cut down pollution. Some ways anyone could contribute to would be biking or walking instead of driving. If you need to go somewhere farther you could always take public transportation instead of going in a separate car creating more pollution. Lastly, trying to get other people involved is the the only way you might make a positive change in global warming. Getting someone important like a mayor or somebody that lots of people look up to, to help you do a campaign or something like that will help you greatly.

Some of the scientists, I believe, haven’t they been changing their opinion a little bit on global warming? There’s a lot of differing opinions and before we react I think it’s best to have the full accounting, full understanding of what’s taking place.

"The ocean is not rising significantly. The polar ice is increasing, not melting away. Polar bears are increasing in number. Heat waves have actually diminished, not increased. There is not an uptick in the number or strength of storms (in fact, storms are diminishing)," says John Coleman.
