Amazon rain forest


Exhausting the atmosphere

Above, heat trapping fuel exhaust
from cars and trucks may stay in
the atmosphere for decades.

Belch
One of the least-efficient ways
to produce electricity, coal-fired
power plants also contribute
to the greenhouse effect.

Save the trees, please
25% of the Amazon rain forest
could be gone by 2050, reducing
oxygen while raising amounts
of heat trapping carbon dioxide.
     

Hurricane Katrina

Artic habitats under threat

CCoral reefs under threat


Weird weather we're having
As the Earth warms, scientists
predict severe weather changes
like those resulting in Hurricane
Katrina in 2005.

Pity the polar bears
Polar habitats are already
threatened by melting
ice floes and glaciers.

Bye-bye coral reefs?
Meanwhile, higher water temps
and rising CO2 levels threaten
life-sustaining coral reefs.
     

Mosquitoes

rising water levels may flood major coastal cities

feast or famine during climate change


Get the mosquito repellant...
As the world's water levels rise,
insect populations and water-
borne diseases will also likely
rise along with them.

... and the row boats
Entire coastal areas, like those
in South Florida (shown in red)
may become flooded as a
result of higher sea levels.

Feast or famine
Changing weather patterns may
benefit new farm regions with
longer growing periods as
traditional ones dry up.
