Global Warming

What is Global Warming? : 

What is Global Warming? Global warming is when the earth heats up (the temperature rises).  It happens when greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, water vapor, nitrous oxide, and methane) trap heat and light from the sun in the earth’s atmosphere, which increases the temperature.  This hurts many people, animals, and plants.  Many cannot take the change, so they die..

What is the greenhouse effect? : 

What is the greenhouse effect? The greenhouse effect is when the temperature rises because the sun’s heat and light is trapped in the earth’s atmosphere.  This is like when heat is trapped in a car. On a very hot day, the car gets hotter when it is out in the parking lot.  This is because the heat and light from the sun can get into the car, by going through the windows, but it can’t get back out.  This is what the greenhouse effect does to the earth.  The heat and light can get through the atmosphere, but it can’t get out.  As a result, the temperature rises.

What are greenhouse gasses? : 

What are greenhouse gasses? Greenhouse gasses are gasses are in the earth’s atmosphere that collect heat and light from the sun.  With too many greenhouse gasses in the air, the earth’s atmosphere will trap too much heat and the earth will get too hot.  As a result people, animals, and plants would die because the heat would be too strong.

What is global warming doing to the environment? : 

What is global warming doing to the environment? Global warming makes the sea rise, and when the sea rises, the water covers many low land islands. This is a big problem for many of the plants, animals, and people on islands. When the plants and animals die, people lose two sources of food, plant food and animal food. As a result, they would also have to leave the area or die.  This would be called a break in the food chain, or a chain reaction, one thing happening that leads to another and so on.

Continued… : 

Continued… The oceans are affected by global warming in other ways, as well.  Many things that are happening to the ocean are linked to global warming.  One thing that is happening is warm water, caused from global warming, is harming and killing algae in the ocean. Algae is a producer that you can see floating on the top of the water. One kind of a consumer is small fish.  There are many others like crabs, some whales, and many other animals.  Fewer algae is a problem because there is less food for us and many animals in the sea.

What causes global warming? : 

What causes global warming? One thing that causes global warming is electrical pollution.  Electricity causes pollution in many ways, some worse than others.  In most cases, fossil fuels are burned to create electricity.  Fossil fuels are made of dead plants and animals.  Some examples of fossil fuels are oil and petroleum.  Many pollutants (chemicals that pollute the air, water, and land) are sent into the air when fossil fuels are burned.  Some of these chemicals are called greenhouse gasses. We use these sources of energy much more than the sources that give off less pollution.  Petroleum, one of the sources of energy, is used a lot.  It is used for transportation, making electricity, and making many other things.  Although this source of energy gives off a lot of pollution, it is used for 38% of the United States’ energy.

examples of using energy and polluting the air are : 

examples of using energy and polluting the air are Turning on a light Watching T.V. Listening to a stereo Washing or drying clothes Using a hair dryer Riding in a car Heating a meal in the microwave Using an air conditioner Playing a video game Using a dish washer

What are people doing to stop global warming? : 

What are people doing to stop global warming? One thing people are doing is carpooling.  Carpooling is driving with someone to a place that you are both going to.  Planting trees and recycling also helps   If you recycle, less trash goes to the dump, and less trash gets burned.  As a result, there are fewer greenhouse gasses in our atmosphere.

What is the government doing to stop global warming? : 

What is the government doing to stop global warming? The government is doing many things to help stop global warming. The government made a law called The Clean Air Act so there is less air pollution. Part of the law says that you may not put a certain amount of pollutants in the air.  The Clean Air Act has also made car companies change some of the things inside of the cars.

What are some of the other dangerous chemicals? : 

What are some of the other dangerous chemicals? Ozone- VOC’s (volatile organic compounds, smog formers) NOx (nitrogen dioxide) CO (carbon monoxide) PM-10 (particulate matter) Sulfur Dioxide Lead

Kid can help stop global warming, too!! : 

Kid can help stop global warming, too!! Although adults do many things to help stop global warming, kids can do just as much.  Kids can’t do hard things like making a law, but we can do easier things like not watching as much TV.  You can listen to your parents when they say, turn off your lights or go play outside.  Listening to them and actually trying to help can help you, your environment, and the world.
