1.By how much has the global average temperature increased in the last 100 years? Over the last 100 years, the global average temperature has increased by 1℉.
2. Are greenhouse gases necessary for life on Earth?What’s the result of too much of them? Yes ,they are. Because they trap heat in the atmosphere of the earth .Otherwise the Earth would be cold and unsuitable for life. But if there are too much of them, the temperature of the earth will rise, that is global warming.
average increase in the Global warming is an _________________ Earth’s temperature, which in turn leads to _____________. climate change It is caused by ____________, human activities for example the increased industry, agriculture, the cutting down of forests , the increase in ________________ the burning of fuels. It will have transport and ___________ severe consequences , such as frequent flooding, heat waves, less fish, serious diseases, ________ melting of the polar ice and _________ the risingof sea levels.
What can we do to save the earth? On one hand , governments should reduce the amount of _____________ carbon dioxide produced by their countries. On the other hand, each person should make small changes like using ________ low-flow shower heads, taking public transports, recycling, buying energy-saving switching off lights when leaving a bulbs, ___________ room and so on. All theses small things can save our future.
