Global Warming Fast facts
With the world on the brink of Catastrophic climate change, It is time to get serious. Humans are pouring carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Much faster then plants and oceans Can absorb it. Next Year government of the world will meet to decide the future of our planet. Let’s hope they get it right.
What is global warming?
Carbon dioxide and other gases warm the surface of the planet naturally by trapping heat from the sun in our atmosphere. This is a good thing because it keeps our planet habitable. However, by
burning fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil and cutting down forests we have dramatically increased the amount of
carbon dioxide on the Earth’s
atmosphere and temperatures are rising fast.
Most scientists agree that global warming is very dangerous . We can already see many changes:
Average temperatures around the world are rising, especially in eastern Russia, Western Canada and Alaska.
Is global warming dangerous?
Arctic ice is quickly disappearing.
Polar bears and other animals
are already suffering from the loss
of sea ice.
Glaciers and mountain snows are quickly melting. The flow of ice from glaciers in Greenland has more than doubled over the past decade.
The number of strong hurricanes over the ocean has almost doubled in the last 30 years.
The number of heat waves, droughts and
wildfires is increasing.
At least 279 kinds of plants and animals are
already responding to global warming,
moving closer to the poles.
What will happen if our planet continuous to get warmer?
Sea levels will rise and cities on
coasts will disappear under the
Polar bears and many other animals will die out.
There will be more floods, especially near coasts and river.
Places that usually get lots of rain
and snowfall will get hotter and
Many lakes and rivers will dry up.
There will be more heat waves, droughts and wildfires .
Hurricanes, tornadoes and other storms will become more common.
What can you do?
The are lots of things you can do to make sure you aren’t causing as much harm to our planet.
Small changes to your daily life can really help to stop global warming.
Use energy-saving light bulbs.
Put on a sweater when you are cold
instead of turning up the heater.
Use your washing machine or dishwasher
only when they are full.
Take a shower
instead of a bath
When shopping, use a reusable bag instead of buying a plastic one in each shop.
So you should not do..
And you can save!
Remember that walking, cycling or talking a bus is less harmful for our planet than travelling by car.
If you have a garden, put your organic waste in a compost heap.
Plant a tree. A single tree will absorb one ton of carbon dioxide over its lifetime.
We hope that we can save our beautiful & wonderful planet.
