              Green house effect
• The green house effect is the rise in temperature that
  the earth experiences because certain gases in the
  atmosphere trap energy from the sun.
          Global Warming




• An increase in the earth's average
  atmospheric temperature that causes
  corresponding changes in climate and that
  may result from the greenhouse effect.

• One of the causes of the greenhouse effect is
  deforestation.
• Another source of the greenhouse effect are the
  emissions of gases like nitrous oxide, carbon-
  dioxide, methane, ozone and water vapor.
            Global warming




One cause is the release of carbon dioxide from everything
   such as air planes, buildings, power plants
Another cause like the Greenhouse effect is water vapor
   increasing in the air and deforestation
     Greenhouse Consequences

• Due to greenhouse gases, the atmosphere
  absorbs more infrared energy than it re-
  radiates to space, resulting in a net warming
  of the Earth-atmosphere system and of surface
  temperature
• Without the Greenhouse effect our
  temperature would drop and we would freeze
Global Warming Consequences
                • Global Warming has a lot
                  of consequences, It can
                  cause the following:
                • Extreme Weather
                • Increase Evaporation
                • Sea Level Rise
                • Temperature to Rise
                • Economy such as,
                  Agriculture, Insurance,
                  Transportation
                • Ecosystems such as,
                  Forests, Mountains, and
                  Ecological productivity
                • Health by increasing the
                  risk of spreading disease
         Effort to stop Global
                Warming



• Prevent global warming by minimizing drafts in your home.

•   Prevent global warming by reducing your waste electricity use.
•
    Prevent global warming with more efficient light bulbs!

•   Prevent global warming by turning down your hot water heater.

•   One good way to prevent global warming is choosing to use power
    produced by alternative means rather than by the burning of fossil
    fuels, which give off large amounts of carbon dioxide. Solar energy
    can be a good alternative to use.
