Answers to these questions can be found on pages 141-158. Please answer in full sentences or paragraphs when appropriate.

    1.   What event started to change the composition of the thin film of gases that make up the atmosphere?

    2.   Why is climate change a key threat to the effective functioning of the biosphere?

    3.   Briefly summarize each Climate forcings (Table 5-2) in chart form.

    4.   What is the Greenhouse Effect? Why is it essential to human life?

    5.   What is the difference between a source and a sink? How do they affect the Natural Greenhouse Effect?

    6.   What is the Enhanced Greenhouse Effect? Why is it so important?

    7.   Read the section Human Activities and Changes in Atmospheric Composition (p.146-152). For EACH gas mentioned,
         create an organizer that answers the following questions.
                                 What is the main source of the Greenhouse Gas (GHG)?
                                 Where would this gas come from naturally?
                                 How does this gas contribute (or not contribute) to the Enhanced Greenhouse Effect?

    8.   Read the section Effects of Enhanced Greenhouse Gases (p.152-158). Summarize each of the effects of enhanced
         greenhouse effect.

    9.   Review Figure 5-5 (155). Pick 5of the “potential effects of climate change across Canada” that you think would impact
         Canadians the most, and describe how they would affect Canada.
