What gas is responsible for global warming?
Carbon dioxide (CO2) warms the Earth by catching solar heat and trapping it in the atmosphere. Along with methane, it helps keep the Earth warm and habitable, but also causes temperature fluctuations that can alter the worlds climate.
The buildup of CO2 on Earth is caused by:
The buildup of CO2 and other greenhouse gases is attributed mostly to humans; primarily burning fossil fuels like oil, coal and natural gas.
Global warming could affect the Earth’s:
Scientists say global warming will have a widespread impact on the Earth’s temperature (an increase as high as 10.4 degrees by the end of the century), weather (more extreme storms, hurricanes, etc) and the levels of the ocean.
Most greenhouse gases come from:
Each year, the United States produces 7 billion metric tons of greenhouse gases. More than half of emissions come from power plants, with one-third coming from transportation. Agriculture, forestry and industrial plants also contribute to global warming.
Do you recycle? If not, did you know you’re creating more than ____ lbs of CO2 per year?
Recyclers help keep 1,000 lbs of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere each year. Ready to recycle? The simple act of recycling old magazines could help cut 50 lbs from the world’s yearly CO2 emission load.
To light your home, you should use:
Installing one energy-saving, 25-watt light bulb will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 100 lbs.
Save gas by ____.
Efficient, well-maintained cars save gas. Remove your roof rack, check your tire pressure, change your oil and get a tune up — every gallon of gas you keep in the tank saves 2,000 pounds of C02.
When sitting down for a meal, you should eat:
Frozen, microwaveable and ready-made foods require 10 times more energy to produce.
What’s the biggest source of wasted water in most homes?
One drip at a time, leaky faucets and running toilets are the No. 1 source of wasted water at home. Most of the fixes are simple ones, though. Replacing the washer in the faucet or the seal in the toilet takes only a few minutes and could save hundreds of gallons per year.
When doing laundry, you should use:
Save 500 lbs of CO2 per year by washing your clothes in cold water.
We should use things that are better for the environment. Find a way to ELIMINATE global warming.
Thank you for doing news. I’m on my schools debate team and two of your topics were on global warming mostly caused by car emitted gases polluting the air. Our debate topic has to do with air pollution. I was able to use pieces for my speech and blame air pollution for global warming.
Looking forward to nxt show.?
Your Show Is Bomb!!!! 🙂
thanks for doing channel one
