793064 Climate Change
Transcript of 793064 Climate Change
design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
Affect Climate Change
waste on land/water
burned, digested, rotted
in oxygen- free environment
using chemical fertilizers
Natural Systems Affected
to reduce waste
gas to travel to places
on land/water because it’s convenient
- to fix climate change opposes political situation
- believe costly fossil fuel will improve climate change
• political figures addressing problem now when effects are already damaging
• trying to find the right leader to lead environmental change
- failed to find leader of Kyoto Protocol
for urban development
burning fossil fuels
to power industries
focused on profit
verses a better environment
- not suitable for agriculture
• permafrost melts leads to destruction to
structures, landslides + avalanches
conditions due to changes in temperature + rainfall
height due to missing weight of ice
CO2, nitrous oxide, methane
by industrial pollution
days and nights
• polluted water
due to melting glaciers
- freshwater draining into oceans
• rise in
• Queen Elizabeth II at conference, urges the US (biggest greenhouse emitter) to contribute
• Political figures British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Canadian Environment Minister Stephanie Dion
to reduce gases
• stress on political figures
who has access to water resources
• marine biologists, geologists, climatologist working to find solutions
• global community
to reduce changes
• world's rich nations
under Kyoto Protocol.
deaths and diseases
from flood, evacuations, heat waves
for rights of water resources
WHICH SYSTEMS ARE AFFECTED AND WHICH COMPONENTS?
Natural Systems Are
BUT IN WHAT WAYS?
lose their habitat
• animals and plants can't survive and grow in the changes
- weather conditions are too extreme
- too much CO2, plants can’t remove it fast enough
• earlier blooming of plants
suffer from health problems
How do these changes affect
humans and the planet?
• storm surge warnings
loss of plant and animal habitat
• forest fire warnings
• environmental problems worldwide
• increased temperature
- food shortages
- longer growing seasons in some places= agricultural growth
• Corporate leaders alter plans to support environmental changes
- need to gain profit for their shareholders
- may lose money
• cost for effects at least two to three times greater
- fund for other purposes lost
- ten of billions ($US) for damages in coastal areas
• insurance economic improves
- insurers pay for more claims due to large disasters
clean, renewable, sources of energy
- wind, solar, tidal or geothermal energy
the way you think about transportation
• reduce energy
appliances- High efficiency appliances
• buy things that last
reduce, recycle, reuse
• take political action/
miles driven by walking, biking, carpooling
• reduce energy usage
- local foods
- less meat
burning fossil fuels with gas & oil
• cost and availability of resources for alternative energy source
• ways to build energy efficient buildings & appliances
• how the climate differs from thousands of years ago to find solutions to climate change
- study tree rings, sediment cores
• individual preparedness
• buy things in bulks
• don't throw out and buy new things
- try to reuse
• unplug unnecessary appliances
• work with other organizations to find solutions

• related to sustainable development
- people work & creating awareness of their actions today
: to sustain the natural systems while meeting human
demands (not only now, but for the generations to come)
• Example: must stop/ reduce burning of fossil fuels, but find alternatives in other energy sources to meet demands of people
• beneficial events of climate change helps the future
- longer growing seasons= less inflation, starvation
- less energy used to warm cold places therefore less emissions
• by "watching our wake", a sustainable life can be achieved
How Can We Resolve These Problems?
