As part of the student blogging challenge, I wrote a post for BAD 2009 on the topic of clamiate change. (http://www.blogactionday.org/) The climate is changing and we know that because the earth has warmed up 1degree f over the last hundred years. We may not know exactly know why it is but, scientists think it is because of human activity. The human activity includes things like burning fossil fuels, wasting electricity and other things. The reason that these things are bad is because they release carbon dioxide into the air. Once the carbon dioxide is in the air that get trapped and it sits there.
And that involves the green house effect. The green house effected is when more heat is being trapped which cause the plant to became warmer. The weather patterns change because of the warming. Another thing that is causing this problem is the Ozone layer. Since there are holes forming in it, it causes more of the ultraviolet rays to come in and harm us and the plant. The rays help warm up the plant and that effect the plant and its weather patterns. So the snow will fall sooner in some places and later in others. And other places are warming up and others are cooling down. Thing that we can do to help are burn less fossil fuels, conserve energy and many more things. The plant is changing and we need to learn how to slow it down so it can be here for more people to come. I learn some of these facts from http://www.clean-air-kids.org.uk/globalwarming.html.
