  5. 5. What is global warming?
  6. 6. What is global warming? Burning fossil fuels release many types of gases, such as carbon dioxide, water vapor, methane, and nitrous oxide. These gases trap heat and light from the sun in the Earth’s atmosphere, which is increasing the Earth’s average temperature and changes in global weather patterns. This is called global warming.
  7. 7. Describe the problem The problem is that human pollution is causing the planet to heat up. This is affecting climates all over the globe. The increased heat causes changes in average precipitation patterns. Tropical locations have stronger, more severe storms like hurricanes, typhoons, and tsunamis. Some locations will experience heavy rain storms and flooding. Other locations will get very little rainfall and experience droughts.
  8. 8. Solve this problem # Human can stop burning fossil fuels for energy. # People should use renewable forms of energy. # Governments, universities, and independent researchers should invest in the development of new energy technology to implement across the globe. # Also, humans can change their diets, by eating less meat and more vegetables.
