Climate Change By Alphabet

FeaturedImage_Climate_6.jpg

Atmosphere - the atmosphere is made up of gases an is surrounding the Earth

Burning - we are burning too many fossil fuels which is partly the fault of climate change

Climate change - a change in global or regional climate patterns, in particular a change apparent from the mid to late 20th century onwards and attributed largely to the increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels

Deforestation - deforestation is when we are wasting trees by cutting them down and is also wasting oxygen

Environment - the environment is in danger because of global warming

Fossil fuels - fossil fuels are being burnt and in several years time there will be none left. Fossil fuels is in the pollution part of global warming

Greenhouse gases - A greenhouse gas is a chemical compound found in the Earth’s atmosphere, such as carbon dioxide, methane, water vapor, and other human-made gases.

Heat waves - Heat waves are periods of abnormally hot weather and are associated with an increased number of deaths.

Ice caps - ice caps are melting because the world is getting too hot which can cause floods

Joint implementation - joint implementation is a agreement between 2 groups and when 1 group is finding it difficult to meet its emission reduction units from the opposing groups emission removal project

Keeling curve - the keeling curve is a graph showing variations of the amount of carbon dioxide in the Earths atmosphere

Lower atmosphere - the lower atmosphere is the lowest atmosphere to the surface

Methane - methane is one of the three greenhouse gases that have an impact on the heat produced

Natural gas - natural gas is a flammable gas which is mostly made of Methane

Oceans - oceans have their sea levels rising from the ice that has melted from heat

Polar bears - polar bears have been becoming extinct as the glaciers that they live on are melting and is causing them to die

Quest - the quest is to find a solution to stop global warming

Radiation - radiation is the emission of energy

Sun - the sun is the biggest star that have all the planets circling around it.

Temperature - the temperature of the Earth has been increasing and the Earth can't sustain too much heat

UNFCC - UNFCC stands for the 1994 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change

Vulnerability - vulnerability is the degree to which physical, biological and economic system are suspectable to and can't live with the impacts of global warming

Water - there is water increase in sea levels and it will soon flood the world around us

eXperts - experts and scientists have been studying climate change but can't get everyone to help

Youth - speaking of helping, it is up to the youth to help our planet and our people from dying in such a horrible way

Zooxanthellae - Zooxanthellae are algae living in the tissue of healthy coral. When water is too warm, corals expel the zooxanthellae and turn white and die

I hope you learn a thing or two from this and
