Global Warmin (yes I Know I Am a Weirdo)

Over the last century scientist have found that the climate temperatures are increasing around the world this kind of world wide temperature increase is called global warming.

Scientist believed its been cause by burning fossil fuels in cars and char coal from power plants. It traps gases in the atmosphere, (CO2) carbon dioxide, which humans can’t breathe so it would be deadly.

 

Graph that shows global warming rise over the years between the 1860-2000.

 

From the late 70’s scientist found that the artic is melting and it’s because of global warming. A giant ice shelf the size of 11,000 football fields has snapped free from Canada's Arctic, leaving behind a trail of floating icy boulders.

 

     This NASA satellite image shows the Ayles Ice Shelf collapse, center and below the open water, on Aug. 13, 2005. Within days of breaking free and becoming an island, Ayles drifted about 30 miles before freezing into the sea ice seen here along top of photo.

The Ayles Ice Shelf about the size of Manhattan broke clear 16 months ago from the coast of Ellesmere Island, about 500 miles south of the North Pole in the Canadian Arctic.

Scientists discovered the event by using satellite imagery. Within one hour of breaking free, the shelf had formed as a new ice island, leaving a trail of icy boulders floating in its wake.

Well of course trees are affected to and multi-million dollar companies are too busy competing with each other cutting down trees not caring what dangers they put the world in.

Planting more trees, cleaning our environment, could prevent global warming. And also using less energy. They are schools involved in preventing global warming cleaning and protecting the environment.

What I think is that because of mankind now we may never prevent global warming. They are too many people not involved in taking care of our planet now we will just see what the future holds now.
