slide 1:

Climate Change - Its Effects and Mitigation Strategies

slide 2:

The Earths climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7000 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.

Scientific evidence for warming of the climate system is unequivocal. - Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

slide 4:

Global temperature rise The planets average surface temperature has risen about 1.62 degrees Fahrenheit 0.9 degrees Celsius since the late 19th century a change driven largely by increased carbon dioxide and other human-made emissions into the atmosphere.4 Most of the warming occurred in the past 35 years with the five warmest years on record taking place since 2010. Not only was 2016 the warmest year on record but eight of the 12 months that make up the year — from January through September with the exception of June — were the warmest on record for those respective months. 5

slide 5:

Warming oceans The oceans have absorbed much of this increased heat with the top 700 meters about 2300 feet of ocean showing warming of more than 0.4 degrees Fahrenheit since 1969.6

slide 6:

Pradip Burman on Climate Change Climate change not only in India but all over the world is a serious threat to all living species. It’s an immense damage to people’s health which will extremely affect the future generation as well. Speaking of India it is a country which is highly vulnerable to climatic changes and its adverse effects. It’s a harsh reality that the days are not far when it would be next to impossible for us to breathe in the absence of oxygen masks.
