Pupils in 4th and 6th Class have been investigating the effects of heat.
One student has been researching global warming.
This is a phenomenon which affects us all.
The Earth’s temperature has risen considerably since the middle of the 20th century. This is because of an increase in greenhouse gases.
Greenhouse gases are created every time we use electricity, drive our cars and create something in a factory.
This video shows how greenhouse gases are increasing the Earth’s temperature.
Global warming will negatively affect life of Earth in a number of ways.
It will cause the polar ice caps to melt destroying habitats.
In approximately one hundred years the countries with normally rich and moist soils will become deserts.
The melting of the polar ice caps causes the sea levels to rise. This in turn causes a increased risk of floods and tsunamis.
We all must work together to protect the environment and try to reverse the effects of global warming.
