       Global Warming

Global warming is the increase in
 the average temperature of the
        Earth's surface.
Greenhouse Effect

           Greenhouse effect is the release of additional
        greenhouse gasses from the burning of fossil fuels,
       which traps additional heat in the Earth’s atmosphere.
•   Global Warming is caused by the warming and
    cooling periods the earth goes through over a
    period of time. We are currently in the middle of a
    warming stage.
•   It’s effects can be increased with the release of
    greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere. Some
    scientist believe that the affect of man has
    increased and/or sped up the effects of Global
•   The Greenhouse effects is a natural occurrence
    that happens on earth in order to maintain a
    stable, and livable environment, that regulates
    the earths temperature for life to exist.
•   This effect can also be increased by the amount
    of “Greenhouse” type gasses that can help trap
    more radiated heat by the sun, than if the
    gasses were not present, increasing overall
    temperatures around the globe.
• The natural effects of global
  warming are increase in
  temperature during the
  warming period, which will
  eventually result in the
  melting of the polar icecaps,
  and higher sea levels which
  could trigger floods along
  the shores of the world.
  Human actions have
  increased the velocity of the
  effects which could result in
  worsening conditions.
• The Greenhouse effect in a natural
  occurrence which keeps the sun’s
  heat inside the earth, regulating
  Earth’s temperature, keeping the
  conditions livable. With the effect
  increased, it could raise the
  temperatures around the world.
  Increasing the sea level, ice caps
  melting and an uncomfortable living
•   Recycle paper, glass, plastic and
    aluminum cans.
•   Use less heat and air conditioning
•   Change Light bulbs (compact fluorescent
    light) Last 10 times as long as regular
•   Drive less, burns off less fossil fuels,
    Walk or ride a bike more often if possible
•   Buy environmentally friendly products
•   Use less hot water, if possible
•   Turn off lights, and household appliances
    (TV, Radio ect.) when not in use.
•   When you get a chance, plant a tree
•   Spread the word to family and friends to
    do the things listed above ^.
