Climate strip part 2

Storyboard Text

  • natural sources of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere
  • human sources of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere
  • how increases in carbon dioxide affect the global temperature
  • some example are outgassing from the ocean, decomposing vegetation and other biomass, venting volcanoes, naturally occurring wildfires, and even belches from ruminant animal
  • Examples of Greenhouse gases 1) Water vapor...2) Carbon Dioxide...3) Menthane...
  • Human activities such as the burning of oil, coal and gas, as well as deforestation are the primary cause of the increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere
  • How does the green house impact on the climate climate
  • Rising carbon dioxide concentrations are already causing the planet to heat upThis means that Earth's temperature will increase at least another 0.6 degrees Celsius because of carbon dioxide already in the atmosphere
  • Definition: a gas that contributes to the greenhouse effect by absorbing infrared radiation, carbon dioxide and chlorofluorocarbonsExamples of gas: water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, ozone, and any fluorocarbons
  • The greenhouse effect is a natural process that warms the Earth's surface, the warm energy warms up the atmosphere/Earth surface This maintains the Earth's temperature at around 33 degrees Celsius warmer than it would be in order for us to be able to live or be alive
  • Rivers and lakes supply drinking water for people and animals and are a vital resource for farming and industry.
  • possible effects of climate change
