Excellent job!


You have successfully completed this unit of work.


I trust that you now have a more solid understanding of the global warming issue and the impact greenhouse gases have on our environment, ecology, and economy.  What are you going to do now?



"The good news is we know what to do. The good news is we have everything we need now to respond to the challenge of global warming. We have all the technologies we need, more are being developed, and as they become available and become more affordable when produced in scale, they will make it easier to respond. But we should not wait, we cannot wait, we must not wait."

                 --Al Gore speech at National Sierra Club Convention, Sept. 9, 2005



"We have many advantages in the fight against global warming, but time is not one of them. Instead of idly debating the precise extent of global warming, or the precise timeline of global warming, we need to deal with the central facts of rising temperatures, rising waters, and all the endless troubles that global warming will bring. We stand warned by serious and credible scientists across the world that time is short and the dangers are great. The most relevant question now is whether our own government is equal to the challenge."

               --JOHN MCCAIN, speech, May 12, 2008



"All across the world, in every kind of environment and region known to man, increasingly dangerous weather patterns and devastating storms are abruptly putting an end to the long-running debate over whether or not climate change is real. Not only is it real, it's here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster."

             --BARACK OBAMA, speech, Apr. 3, 2006
