Transcript of Carbon Emission

What is the issue? SCIENTISTS Problems that are created Solutions and Contribution How is it related to climate Change By releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, it increases global warming (greenhouse effect)

Carbon dioxide is released into the air through many of the activities we do such as burning fossil fuels, using cars or any other vehicles, using electricity, and even breathing. carbon emissions related to human impacts

carbon emissions are most likely the number one contributor to global warming Michael E. Mann
studies climate and has gathered information to create the infamous “Hockey Stick” graph

Graph has opened the eyes of many people to the impacts of releasing carbon dioxide into atmosphere Carbon Emission Water level increases
Glaciers melt and this in turn raises the water level
Lead to flooding
Ocean level already rising 3-4mm every year
1.3 m rise would flood major cities Development of super carbon trees
A genetically modified tree
Can take in 8-10 times the amount of carbon compared to regular trees
Roughly 10 years, the trees become profitable dues to their lumber By looking at the hockey stick graph, we can see that the majority of earth’s history has very minimal carbon levels and then near the current day, we can see a dramatic spike. Anthony Nguyen and Steven Nguyen Humans have impacted this warming of the earth by their everyday lifestyle
We can be more environmentally friendly by changing our ways Joseph J. Romm
He is a physicist and climate expert
Former assistant secretary for the US Department of energy - in charge of promoting greener ways of doing thing
Author and Co Author for many book
all in which talks about climate and taking action

All images were taken from Google Images. There are many different ways a person can reduce their carbon emission but many are uncommon to the general public.
Some are: delay childbearing or have fewer children , becoming a vegan More severe natural disasters
Droughts, more precipitation and heat waves
