CLIMATE CHANGE 101

THIS IS NOT TOO BIG TO FACE- IT IS TOO BIG TO IGNORE.

 

    1. Can you describe how Earth's atmosphere works to produce the climate man needs to survive?
    2. Can you name the four natural greenhouse gases?
    3. Do you understand climate change and why it is a problem now?
    4. All energy is from the sun. Can you explain how man is able to use that energy and name the two forms we use?
    5. How does deforestation, excessive release of carbon, overpopulation, draining of aquifers, melting ice sheets and glaciers, and polluting of oceans, lakes and rivers combine to endanger civilization, as we know it?
    6. What is surfacing as the weakest link and greatest risk to man's survival?
    7. How can one family prevent tens of thousands of pounds of  CO2 from being released into the atmosphere each year?

 

Three years ago, I could not answer these questions. I did the research, made changes to help protect our future, and wrote a book that clearly explains our situation and what we can do to help.
Your assignment is to read the book, make changes, and inform others.
