Storyboard Text

  • The Greenhouse Effect
  • Fossil Fuels
  • Air Pollution
  • The Greenhouse effect is when the sun radiates heat that is absorbed by the Earth.Some of the heat will get trapped in the greenhouse gases.This effect is good because it contributes to the natural warming of the Earth but with increased amounts of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere,this effect becomes stronger than it should.
  • Rising Sea Levels
  • A fossil fuel is a hydrocarbon-containing material formed underground from the remains of dead plants and animals that humans extract and burn to release energy for use. The main fossil fuels are coal, petroleum and natural gas, which humans extract through mining and drilling.
  • Increased Temperatures
  • Air pollution is the presence of substances in the atmosphere that are harmful to the health of humans and other living beings, or cause damage to the climate or to materials. There are many different types of air pollutants, such as gases, particulates, and biological molecules
  • Water Shortages
  • The ocean soaks up most of the heat from global warming. This melts ice sheets and raises sea levels, threatening coastal and island communities. The ocean also absorbs carbon dioxide, keeping it from the atmosphere. More carbon dioxide makes the ocean more acidic, which endangers marine life.
  • Nearly all land areas are seeing more hot days and heat waves; 2020 was one of the hottest years on record. Higher temperatures increase heat-related illnesses and can make it more difficult to work and move around. Wildfires start more easily and spread more rapidly when conditions are hotter.
  • Water scarcity is the lack of fresh water resources to meet the standard water demand. Two types of water scarcity have been defined: physical or economic water scarcity. Physical water scarcity is where there is not enough water to meet all demands, including that needed for ecosystems to function effectively.
