Planet Fever

Our world is getting warmer



Introduction: Since the Industrial Revolution we have raised the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere from 280 parts per million to 380 parts per million. This has caused planet Earth to warm up by about one degree Fahrenheit. How this will effect our planet is uncertain. Our addressing this issue together, must be a top priority.




The Evidence:


Global Change from Science 12 May 2006


The Discovery of Global Warming


Report Reconciles Atmospheric Temperature Trends


US Climate Change Science Program Final Report


Effects are uncertain


One Degree Fahrenheit


Review: Field Notes from a Catastrophe by Elizabeth Kolbert


EPA Climate Change site


No increase in atmospheric CO2 levels


What can we do about it?


  • Drive your fuel efficient car less
  • Install compact fluorescent light bulbs and save money
  • Insulate your hot water heater with a fiberglass blanket
  • Install an attic exhaust fan
  • Install solar powered decorative lighting
