Global Warming

6 things to know

1.Global Warming is the cause of earths surface temperature increase:

This is because greenhouse gases gathering in earth’s atmosphere like a blanket getting thicker and thicker as time goes on, collecting the suns heat and causing the earth's surface to heat up.

2.The Ozone hole is not the cause of global warming:

The ozone hole is a cooling factor, which means the loss of Ozone means slightly more heat can escape into space from that region, global warming is the increase of earths average temperature due to the build of human produced green-house gases.

3.climate change is a warming trend, not a warming cycle:

“The Earth's climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives.”

4.climate change will effect communities all over the world:

Climate change (a warming trend) can cause, and affect a lot of different things to happen around you, you might not notice it right now, because it is a slow and gradual process, but in the long run the changes will have been drastic. These changes can vary from, to many males of a species, to all too many females, or the growth of various plants slowing down, or warmer winters, to extra hot summers.

5.Global Warming is man made;

Global warming is caused by man made green-house gases, such a pollution, power plants,things like burning coal, and chopping down trees to be able to build houses, i know it is very impossible to stop doing these things, but there is no other explanation as to why the earth is heating up.

6.A warmer climate could alter the number of males and females of some species:

In many wildlife species the environment they live, as well as their genetics, strongly determines whether individuals become males or females. Species with temperature-dependent sex determination may be very vulnerable to climate change.
