Slide 2: 

It is estimated that the carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere has gone up by 25 percent since the industrial revolution of 1789. This has led to an increase of 0.1°C in the ocean temperature. While the Arctic ice was 6-7 mts. (20-23 ft.) in 1976 has reduced to 4-5 mts. (13-17ft.) by 1987.

Slide 3: 

The climate change attributed to the Greenhouse effect. It is estimated that by 2030, average global temperatures will rise between 0.7-2° C This would lead to increase in the average sea level due to the melting of polar ice caps. This could lead to the submergence of low lying areas and islands around the world. Global warming Follow us on www.facebook.com/greenyatra www.twitter.com/greenyatra

Climate change : 

The various alterations\modifications happening in climate over a period of time This is caused by an increase in the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere which inhibit the transmission of some of the sun’s energy from the earth’s surface to outer space These gases include carbon dioxide, water vapor, methane, chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), and other chemicals Due to deforestation, burning of fossil fuels such as petrol, oil, coal and natural gas; and the release of CFCs from refrigerators and air conditioners.

Slide 8: 

Environmental services Protection of water resources (vegetation, etc), soil formation and protection Nutrient storage and cycling Pollution break down and absorption Contribution to climatic stability Maintenance of ecosystems Recovery from unpredictable events Follow us on www.facebook.com/greenyatra www.twitter.com/greenyatra

What can we do? : 

What can we do? Reduce CFC’s? Regulate fossil fuel burning? Regulate deforestation and forest fire? Reduce contribution of smoke to atmosphere? Entertain more green space? Plant more trees? Follow us on www.facebook.com/greenyatra www.twitter.com/greenyatra
