Transcript of Global Warming

Global Warming Is it Sustainable? Sustainable means that we are able to provide for ourselves in way that won’t affect future generations abilities as well. And the answer to that is no. Environmental Problems Taking Action Government Global warming is being caused by the depletion of the ozone Personally Global warming had begun the depletion of the ozone. International Industrial Transportation: bike, walk, hybrid cars, carpool
At home: turn tv computer and lights off when not in use, recycle, have proper insulation in homes, use energy efficient products, buy local food products. -The One Ton challenge -using greener ways of producing energy

-using recycled products

-selling environmentally
friendly products Conclusion Global Warming: Then and Now Sources Where is greenhouse gas coming from? -improve and encourage protection of carbon sinks (forests and oceans) Protect the environment to avoid the possible consequences of global warming -Flooding
-more rain in already wet areas and less in dry areas, causing land that is currently abundant to be too leached for farming (ex. Coastal farms), or too dry (ex. Prairie farms) Economic Pressures Industries and Global Warming Increasing the Effects of Global Warming Industries that will be affected: The Greenhouse Gas Effect Solar Radiation Ozone -Factories

-Electricity production:

-Car manufacturers: http://environment.nationalgeographic.com/environment/global-warming/ozone-depletion-overview/ What the world is doing: What it should also be doing: What they should also do: Forestry

Paper Companies


Fishing What they are doing: What they should also do: What they are doing: http://blogs.edf.org/climate411/2009/03/13/global-warming-normal-nothing-to-do-with-fossil-fuels/ 1980 The Rio treaty was signed by 160 countries 180 countries sign the Kyoto Protocol -forests would die and relocate (big impact of forestry business’ &towns) -some areas (like the far north) would become better climate for farming What can we do? International conferences 1992 2005 -Global warming could have many negative environmental effects on the world including flooding, loss of natural resources, warming climate, more rain, and oceans could become acidic. -Many of the effects are caused by the emission of greenhouse gas -Simple actions can make a difference in reducing our carbon footprints. -oceans would become more acidic -add extra tax on products that put a strain on the environment, and offer tax receipts for those that don't. -put caps on the amount of electricity a house can use Also, use of 'green' energy providers like solar, wind, hydro, and geothermal. -put focus on the environmentally friendly products or campaigns they have. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2012/10/04/a-closer-look-at-obamas-90-billion-for-clean-energy/ - 90 billion dollars enviornment.nationalgeographic.com/enviornment/global-warming Water Problems Vegetation What we should do: http://www.davidsuzuki.org/issues/climate-change/science/impacts/economic-impacts/ -forests would become drier (more forest fires) April 22 the world had their first Earth Day 1970 -There could be negative economic effects including loss of jobs, and industries going broke. -Put limits on the amounts of greenhouse gases a country can produce and have serious penalties for going over the limit.
-Focus on countries that produce excess amounts of greenhouse gas, and countries that are developing. -charge extra for products that put a strain on the environment Question! In Canada, what is the leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions? Transportation Question! In what year the Kyoto Protocol established? 2005 Question! What are two industries that will be affected by global warming? Agriculture, forestry, paper companies, fishing, etc. Question! True or false: there will be more rain in dry places, and less in places that get an abundance of rain False: there will be more rain in abundant places, and less in dry areas Oceans, land, and plants can absorb 55% of extra carbon people distribute on earth and the atmosphere absorbs the rest Us! We release greenhouse gas in many different day to day activities
