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

    I like that you have used a format that balanced_singer has done before! They have done the same for this Issue, so check out their post and see if you have any similarities!

    Hi quiet_horse! It’s nice to see another Climate Change Alphabet post :)
    I would like to add the following:
    V- Venus, I just thought I would add another interesting fact about Climate Change on a different planet because scientists believe that the planet Venus use to have an atmosphere very similar to Earth but due to a runaway greenhouse effect it now has a thick blanket of CO2 in it’s atmosphere and it’s so hot it can melt lead, and this same process might happen to Earth if we do not control our CO2 emissions. For those that deny Climate Change exists, I thought it would be a good idea for those people to check out Venus!

    For F you could of done about fracking. Fracking is basicly people digging into the ground for recources located deep in the earth for materials factory's burn to make electricity. But, they end up releasing gases into our atmosphere which messes with our weather and can sometimes make earth quakes and they don't even seem to care because they just want the money. I got my information from documentry's i watch

    Thank you happy_sparrow and creative_sparrow. Thanks for telling me some facts that I will soon research (when I have time!)

    This is a very smart post but i would like to give you a challenge: try and make an alphabet for the next few upcoming issues. Good luck! I hope you accept.

      I would love to do that but sadly I won't be here for the new year and new issues. I am going to secondary school
