  • global climate change
    • risks of climate change:
      • long term change in whole weather system
      • if average global temperature rises to 2'c = irreversible chnages take place = causes by chnage in climate
    • reducing carbon footprint
      • increased use of alternative energy supplies & hydrogen fuel cells
      • energy efficiency by driving cars that use less fuel
      • energy conservation & energy efficiency in our homes
    • potential effects of global climate change by warming
      • sea level rise = cuase flooding and increased coastal eroisom
      • more frequent and severe storms
      • change in amount, timing and distribution of rainfall
