Global Warming:
A Global Issue
What makes an issue global?
Global issues are:
-trans-national
-significant
-persistent
-interconnected

What is Global Warming?
Whose being affected?
Due to all the heavy climate and weather changes, several populations of people and animal habitats can get destroyed
More weather/climate extremes are quite likely to impact the energy infrastructure(define: infrastructure, the basic features of an organization) in North America
Unfortunately, wildlife is highly at risk and since their habitats will be destroyed and they are to find a new home (e.g. polar bears)
Global Warming
Disadvantages of this issue
Because of global warming, humans experience several of these things:
Rising Sea Levels
Higher Temperature
More diseases will spread, and heat-related illnesses will develop
There will be huge economic losses and jobs
There is a higher chance of drought, fire and floods
Also, stronger storms and increased storm damage
This image represents the spots where global warming hit the most. We can simply observe that global warming hit the developing countries more.(such as Africa)
Global Warming is a gradual increase in the overall temperature of the Earth's atmosphere attributed by the Greenhouse Effect.
Global Warming is an issue because...
Changing Landscapes
Rising temperatures and changing patterns in rain and snow are forcing trees and plants around the world to move forward polar regions and up mountain slopes.
Wildlife is at risk
Rising temperatures are changing weather and vegetation patterns across the globe,forcing animal species to migrate to new, cooler areas in order to survive.
Rising sea levels
As the Earth heats up, sea levels rise because warmer water takes up more room than colder water and also known as Thermal Expansion. Melting glaciers compound the problem by dumping even more fresh water into the ocean.
Economic losses
Climate change is already affecting economies around the world. If action is not taken to curb global emissions, climate change could cost 5-20% of the annual global gross domestic product.
More heat-related illness and diseases
In 2003, heat waves caused more than 20,000 deaths in Europe and more than 1,500 deaths in India.

Melting of the Glaciers
- glaciers form when snow remains long enough on the ground to form hard ice
- it is made up of fallen snow and is developed over the years
- glaciers occupy around 10% of the world's total land area
- several elements help contribute glacier formation and growth
- global warming is affecting the ice to melt
How does global warming affect the glaciers?
Global Warming is a political, social, economic and environmental issue because there are many economic losses, the government is trying to find a solution, people are talking socially to also find a solution and it is effecting the environment and animals.
This picture shows the glaciers, and global warming is causing the ice melt. You'd say only 10% of the ice is alive.
What does Global Warming impact on those affected?
How can you, as one person help to solve this issue?
Global warming is affecting the glaciers to melt and all arctic animals are losing their homes.
Also global warming affects the social and economic standards. The sun effects the glaciers to melt and about the hot weather.
You can...
stop using Carbon monoxide and Carbon dioxide(found in cars mostly)
ride bicycles or walk instead of riding cars or carpool
Global Warming is a global issue because it is trans-national, significant, persistent, and interconnected. It is trans-national because Global warming is not just in one nation, it is nation-wide. Global Warming is significant because it is important and also because it is affecting lots if things such as wildlife and the economic society. It is persistent because it just doesn't stop automatically,it is long-acting. It is interconnected because if Global warming effects one nation,it could spread (like a disease).
The impact that global warming does is causing land damage and makes animals living on ice float
away from melting and the water level rising from
the falling ice causing the water
to rise and change temperature.
This issue is taking place in many countries including America, Russia, Africa, Arctic and more. Global warming has affected these countries massively. (for e.g. in the Arctic, temperatures are dropping therefore it causes the ice and snow to melt, and polar bears and other animals lose their habitats and homes.)In Northern Canada, specifically in B.C, and they are well known to delay the onset of runoff at the beginning of the melting season. Countries like China, and in the States, in Miami, Florida suffered a great deal of rising water levels. (flooding)
6I HMC
reduce, reuse and recycle!
use CFL lightbulbs(reduces amount of energy)
use less hot water when taking a shower or washing hands
don't waste electricity; only use light when needed
use renewable resources of energy such as the wind or sun and etc.
use less plastic products, use more recyclable products instead (e.g instead of bringing a regular plastic water bottle, you can bring a refillable and stainless water bottle to school instead)
Precipitation (rain and snowfall) has increased across the globe on average.
Ice is melting worldwide from north pole
to South pole ,and everywhere in between.
Researcher Bill Fraser has tracked the decline of the Adélie penguins on Antarctica, where their numbers have fallen from 32,000 breeding pairs to 11,000 in 30 years.•Spruce bark beetles have boomed in Alaska thanks to 20 years of warm summers. The insects have chewed up 4 million acres of spruce trees.

The insects have chewed up 4 million acres of spruce trees.Some butterflies, foxes, and alpine plants have moved farther north or to higher, cooler areas.Less fresh water will be available. If the Quelccaya ice cap in Peru continues to melt at its current rate, it will be gone by 2100, leaving thousands of people who rely on it for drinking water and electricity without a source of either.Ecosystems will changesome species will move farther north or become more successful; others won’t be able to move and could become extinct. Wildlife research scientist Martyn Obbard has found that since the mid-1980s, with less ice on which to live and fish for food, polar bears have gotten considerably skinnier. Polar bear biologist Ian Stirling has found a similar pattern in Hudson Bay. He fears that if sea ice disappears, the polar bears will as well.Hurricanes and other storms are likely to become stronger.
