Presentation Transcript

  1. Climate Change: The Physical Science Basis

  2. “The Data” versus “The Debate”

  3. Global Warming?

  4. Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide

  5. Greenhouse Gases: Relative Importance (fossil fuels, deforestation) (refrigerants, solvents) (cows, landfills, rice, wetlands, coal mining) (nitrogen fertilizer)

  6. Carbon & Climate

  7. Ice Cores: Clues to the Past

  8. Source: OSTP

  9. Current Climate Change Factors

  10. What’s in Store for the Future?

  11. Global Circulation Models: Clues to the Future

  12. The Future Atmosphere Future Current

  13. The Future Climate

  14. NY Times 2006 Future Climate Depends on the Path of Progess

  15. Future Temperature Projections

  16. Future Rainfall Projections

  17. Consequences: Melting Ice Caps

  18. Consequences: Sea Level Rise

  19. Consequences: Sea Level Rise +3 feet

  20. Consequences: Sea Level Rise +20 feet

  21. Consequences: Extreme Weather Heat/Drought Europe, Summer 2003: 35,000 dead

  22. Consequences: Extreme Weather Cat 2+3 Cat 1 Cat 4+5 Summer Sea Surface Temperatures

  23. Current Florida Vulnerabilities Miami Tampa – St. Pete. Hurricane Storm Surge

  24. What Can Be Done?

  25. Stabilizing Atmospheric Carbon

  26. Wedges for Stabilizing Carbon

  27. What Can I Do? Search the term ‘carbon calculator’ on the internet. The company BP has an easy one to use, but there are many others Use that to see what changes around your home and workplace will reduce your personal carbon emissions
