Storyboard Text

  • Natural sources of Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere
  • - Ocean atmosphere exchange- Plant and Animal respiration - Soil respiration and decomposition- Volcanic eruption
  • Natural sources of Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere
  • - Burning of fossil fuel - Land use changes - Industrial Process - Greenhouse gas emissions
  • how does increases in carbon dioxide affect the global temperature?
  • Naturally Rising carbon dioxide concentrations are already causing the planet to heat up but when greenhouse warming doesn't happen right away because the ocean soaks up heat. This means that Earth's temperature will increase at least another 0.6 degrees Celsius because of carbon dioxide already in the atmosphere.
  • Greenhouse gases are gases in Earth’s atmosphere that stops heat from escaping the atmosphere.
  • Greenhouse Gases Examples: - Methane- Carbon dioxide- Water Vapor - Chlorofluorocarbons
  • Greenhouse effect is the trapping of Sun's warmth in the planet's lower atmosphere, due to the greater transparency of the atmosphere to visible radiation from the sun than to infrared radiation emitted from the planet's surface. This is affecting the climate in many due to the trapping of the heat such as Global warming, Ice melting, Extreme weather, Food supply disruption, etc.
  • - Rising Sea level - Shrinking glaciers- Dangerous weather- Disease spreading- Coral bleaching
  • Effects of Climate Change
