  • Global Warming is the increase in the overall global temperature over time. For example, from 1880-1980, the global temperature increased by 0.07 degrees c°.
  • Impact on Canada + Examples
  • Global Warming occurs naturally. The problem over the last 100 years, is the rate at which the temperatures are increasing. For example, since 1981, the rate of increase has doubled from 0.07°c-0.18°c.
  • The pollutants which most commonly get stuck in the atmosphere and cause the rise in temperatures, is Carbon Dioxide, Methane, Nitrous Oxide, Water Vapour and Synthetic Fluorinated
  • Global Warming is the result of Carbon Dioxide (fossil fuels) and other air pollutants collecting in the atmosphere and absorbing sunlight and solar radiation.
  • Normally, this radiation would escape into space, but we have been producing them so much, it has stayed in the atmosphere. This causes the planet to trap the heat and to slowly get hotter and hotter
  • Modern technology plays a big role in the cause of global warming. Things like cars, factories and other big industries, emit a lot of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
  • With the raising of temperatures, the air quality decreases. This can cause many health problems throughout society and increases underlying conditions due to the heat and air quality.
  • Global Warming stresses the environment because of the temperatures rises, we see more wild fires with a higher intensity, water shortages, intense storms, odd weather conditions, and rising sea levels.
  • Canada is one of the most affected places by global warming. For example, BC had some of its highest temperatures, reaching as high as 49°c between June 25-July 1 2021
  • The heat is causing the ice burgers to melt at a faster rate. This puts Atlantic Canada at risk. It is estimated that by 2100, the Atlantic Ocean will rise by 75-100 cm, putting PEI and other provinces at risk for flooding.
  • There are many ways we can help in slowing down the speed of global warming. To reduce our carbon footprint, we can do small steps each day.
  • These are just some small steps to help our planet start cooling down and keeping everyone and everything healthy.
  • See can use more renewable energy, energy efficient appliances, unplug more, reduce our food and water waste, and plant more trees and carpool often.
