This polar bear is on a little piece of ice because When these factory's are running they are putting pollution in the air.
Global warming is melting their homes.

The earth was formed about 4,540,000,000 years ago. At the begging the earths
atmosphere contained very little oxygen(less than 1% oxygen pressure.)
We have 21% of gases in our atmosphere. The last ice age began to recede
about 20,000 years ago. The worlds population is increasing at the rate about
80,000,000 per year. The global fleet of motor vehicles are estimated to about
830,000,000.


Ways to stop global warming



  • Use light bulbs that are fluorescent, they save energy.
  • Could check the water heater temperature and reduce the it to 120 degrees.
  • Possibly check the settings on all of the appliances in the home.
  • Check the settings on your refrigerator and select the energy saving.
  • Check the thermostat setting in your house.
  • Set the thermostat temperature down at night or when the room is unoccupied.

Why Global Warming is occurring



There are many people in the world who are causing global warming. When you use
hairspray, the chemicals are dissolving our ozone layer. Most products that are in cans
are causing our ozone layer to disappear. Also, when people are cutting down trees to
build houses for people to live in, eventually we are going to die of no oxygen if the trees
are gone. They are providing us life and I understand we need homes for people to live in
but there is no reason for them to cut down so many trees. Global warming is so high right now
their saying eventually the U.S is going to be in the ocean because of the ice melting is putting
more water into the ocean. The raise of global warming is out standing.Global warming is a
huge deal in our lives. Global warming has the potential to change or our lives forever. This
could affect the whole mankind. There are huge social, political,and economic issues that
will rise if we don't do anything to stop the skyrocketing rise of temperatures. Human generation
of greenhouse gases is responsible for most related changes since the 1950s.

Global Warming

This is a balloon asking people to help save the climate. Are world is being put
in horrible situations because of many different problems do to global warming.

Many people are trying to save the climate changes by flying this hot air balloon to get
peoples attention. There are many other ways to get peoples attention. Even putting up
signs would help with the global warming.

Average temperatures around the world have climbed 1.4 degrees in the last 100
years. The 1080's and 1990's were the hottest decades on record, and the eight
warmest years have all occurred since 1998.

Arctic sea ice is disappearing. Glaciers have been melting at a faster rate then any
other time over the past 5,000 years.In the Arctic and the Antarctic, ice shelves
several thousand years old have started to collapse due to global warming.

The overwhelming majority of scientist believe that our globe is undergoing major
climate change. Also they agree that that the level of carbon dioxide in the
atmosphere is rising significantly. People can see from satellite images and
research that the icecaps are melting faster, the sea levels are rising, and
weather patterns are changing. The desert may expand and the world will have
difficulty growing enough food for everyone. Without a thought there has got to
be a change in the way we live.

There are a few scientists who think our earth is going about business usual.
When dealing with global warming there should a approach based on the
precautionary principal adopted. The precautionary principle states that if the
potential consequences of an action are severe or irreversible, in the absence
of full scientific certainty the burden of proof falls on those who would advocate
taking the action.

Thousands of scientists are working on the scientific aspects of the climate
change. They are not just proving this theory but they are advising on what
action needs to be taken by people to stop global warming. The earth has
gone through many natural climatic cycles during its long history. We are
causing changes to happen at and unbelievable rate, much faster than our
normal rate. Burning fossil fuels pours out green house gasses at a
threatening rate. Global warming, Green house effect, climate change, they
are all happening right now. Right now the rate of climate changes is so fast
were struggling to adopt he philosophies.
The world is now hotter than any time in the last 800 years.

These are some ways that people could think about to help global warming.

During the 20th century the sea levels rose 17cm. They rose faster in the second half then in the first half of this century.
The ice sheets over Greenland lost almost 250 cm of ice between 2004 and 2007. In 2004 the Antarctic ice shelf collapsed
dramatically while releasing 5 billion tons of ice that shattered into tons of thousands of ice bergs that had drifted off into the
ocean.
