Science, Technology & Society: Climate Change & Environmental Awareness (W12)

  1. 1. MR. ADRYAN J. VALIAO
  2. 2. WEEK TWELVEClimate Change & Environmental Awareness Objectives 1. Identify the causes of climate change; 2. Apply STS Concepts to the issue of climate change; 3. Explain the reasons for environmental awareness; 4. Show the role of education in making environmentally aware; and 5. Demonstrate their level of environmental awareness through actions.
  3. 3. Environmental Awareness
  4. 4. Environmental Awareness: Instilling a Sense of Hopefulness for the Future
  5. 5. ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS Environmental awareness is to understand the fragility of our environment and the importance of its protection.
  6. 6. Environmentalism
  7. 7. ENVIRONMENTALISM Environmentalism is an ideology that evokes the necessity and responsibility of humans to respect, protect, and preserve the natural world from its anthropogenic (caused by humans) afflictions.
  8. 8. ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES Air Pollution  GreenhouseEffect  OzoneDepletion  Water Pollution  SolidWaste  Lossof Biodiversity  GlobalWarming  Climate Change
  9. 9. AIR POLLUTION Any substance in air that could, in sufficient concentration, harm humans, animals, vegetation, or material. Anything in the air that is harmful to our health or to our surroundings
  10. 10. GREENHOUSE EFFECT Refers to the phenomenon where certain gases in the lower atmosphere absorb the heat radiated by the earth, thereby preventing the heat from escaping to outer space.
  11. 11. GREENHOUSE GASES
  12. 12. CARBON FOOTPRINT the total amount of greenhouse gases produced to directly and indirectly support human activities, usually expressed in equivalent tons of carbon dioxide (CO2).
  13. 13. CARBON FOOTPRINT the sum of all emissions of CO2 (carbon dioxide), which were induced by your activities in a given time frame.
  14. 14. OZONE DEPLETION
  15. 15. BEING OZONE FRIENDLY Be an ozone-friendly consumer. Buy products (aerosol spray cans, refrigerators, fire extinguishers, etc.) that are labeled “ozone- friendly” or “CFC free”. Be an ozone-friendly citizen. Read and learn more about the effects of the ozone depletion on people, animals and the environment.
  16. 16. WATER POLLUTION If you had a bottle of life- preserving fluid on which your life depended, would you pour into it all your sewage and rubbish, along with any other poisonous chemicals you could find? And yet, that is exactly what we are doing to our water supply – all over the world.
  17. 17. SOLID WASTE: CITIES – GARBAGE FACTORIES Very few cities in developing countries have proper facilities for disposing of solid and human waste. Because cities generate so much of both, this is a huge problem to people’s health and the pleasure of living in a city.
  18. 18. LOSS OF BIODIVERSITY Biodiversity means the rich variety of life forms in nature. Many of the world’s different plants and animals are under severe threat of extinction. Many species are lost already.
  19. 19. What is Climate Change?
  20. 20. CLIMATE CHANGE Also called as Global Warming – the rise of average surface temperatures on earth.
  21. 21. CLIMATE CHANGE NASA: a broad range of global phenomena created predominantly by burning of fossil fuels which add heat-trapping gases to the atmosphere.
  22. 22. 6 Ways Climate Change will affect PH
  23. 23. 1. MORE INTENSE EL NINO The El Niño phenomenon occurs when the surface of ocean waters in the southern Pacific becomes abnormally warm. The energy created by this warming is so great that it can create an imbalance in the weather in different parts of the world. In Southeast Asia, it can lead to abnormally dry conditions.
  24. 24. 1. MORE INTENSE EL NINO El Niño can also make other weather events like storms highly unpredictable. Weather will have extreme highs and lows, making it "increasingly difficult to accurately predict weather patterns for purposes of planning and normal business operations," says a WWF- Philippines study.
  25. 25. 2. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES TO RISE By the end of the century, sea surface temperatures are expected to rise by 1 to 4 degrees Celsius. This can lead to more powerful storms because storms get their strength from heat rising from the sea.
  26. 26. 2. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES TO RISE In the Philippines, 4 and 5 degree Celsius spikes above the normal sea surface temperature have been recorded. Warmer seas kill coral reefs and can thus lead to a decline in fish catch, putting food security in danger.
  27. 27. 3. OCEAN ACIDIFICATION The shift in the Ph levels of our oceans can lead to widespread coral reef death. Because of the imbalance, shrimps are not able to develop skins, oysters cannot develop shells. Fish larvae may not be able to develop bones. This further endangers food security and the livelihood of fishermen.
  28. 28. 4. SEA LEVELS TO RISE BY 4-6m Current data show an increase in sea surface heights. Scientists say this is due to the melting of ice sheets in northern portions of the globe like Antarctica and Greenland. Sea level rise by 4 to 6 meters can submerge low-lying communities like Tacloban City which stands only 3 meters above sea level.
  29. 29. 5. TROPICAL CYCLONES TO INTENSIFY The creation of tropical cyclones is already being recorded in areas where the phenomenon had never been observed. On Nov 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), said to be the strongest storm in recorded history, devastated cities in Visayas.
  30. 30. 6. RAINFALL, RIVER FLOW & FLOODING TO INTENSIFY Monsoon rainfall in the Philippines will reach new highs and lows. Some parts of the country will experience an upward trend in rainfall while other parts will experience an intensification of drought. These two extreme poles of weather will make it more difficult for agriculture and aquaculture sectors which are highly dependent on weather.
  31. 31. TASK #1 Make a concept paper on how to make the Seminary a more environment- friendly community.
  32. 32. TASK #2 Explain each of the 10 Benefits of Environmental Education
  33. 33. 10 Benefits of Environmental Education
  34. 34. 1. Imagination and Enthusiasm are heightened

  39. 39. 6. Biophobia and Nature Deficit Disorder decline.
  40. 40. 7. Healthy lifestyles are encouraged.
  41. 41. 8. Communities are strengthened.
  42. 42. 9. Responsible Action is taken to better the Environment.
  43. 43. 10. Students and Teachers are empowered.
