Enrichment Activity 8. Climate Change
Questions:
1. What is the title of the video lesson?
Climate Change - We are the PROBLEM & the SOLUTION (Animated Infographic)
2. Why is it stated that the planet Earth is not on a good path for continuing to sustain life?
Our planet is not on a good path for continuing to sustain life the earth because it is facing
the accelerating detrimental effects of climate change.
3. What is another reference term for “climate change”?
Climate change is also referred to as global warming.
4. How is climate change defined?
Climate change is defined as a long-term change in the Earth's overall temperature with
massive and permanent ramifications.
5. What do climate scientists believe as the cause of climate change?
Climate scientists believe that this isn't caused naturally by the earth but by human
activity Earth's atmosphere consists of gases such as oxygen and nitrogen and other gases known
as greenhouse gases.
6. What greenhouse gases are in the Earth’s atmosphere?
Greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide nitrous oxide and methane incoming light from the
Sun hits the Earth's surface the earth absorbs some of that energy heating the surface of the
planet the rest of that energy gets reflected some of that energy goes back on into space.
7. How will you explain “greenhouse effect?
The greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide trap the energy and send it right back to the
Earth's surface heating it up even more this is known as the greenhouse effect.

8. While a little greenhouse effect is natural to the earth and is a good thing to have, why can a
large greenhouse effect be catastrophic?
Greenhouse effect is natural to the earth and is a good thing to have but a large
greenhouse effect can be catastrophic causing a lot of that energy to stay in our atmosphere and
heat up the earth at an accelerating rate some of the main human activity that amidst
greenhouse gases are fossil fuel burning animals agriculture and deforestation and waste and
recycle pollution burning fossil fuels like coal oil and natural gas as well as gasoline for some of
the largest pollutants of carbon emissions not only that but when fossil fuels are burnt and their
gas is mixed with heat they create smog a thick air pollutant that is highly toxic.
9. What causes ocean acidification?
Animals and plant life are struggling to adapt to these conditions for survival if even one
species goes extinct it can create a domino effect with the food chain no living plants or animals
means no living humans rising temperatures makes the Earth's oceans become warmer which
causes something known as ocean acidification.
10. What are the harmful effects of ocean acidification?
Ocean acidification harms animal life and is what's causing the death of the Great Barrier
Reef this is a problem because about 1 billion people use ocean life as their main source of protein
since the oceans are becoming warmer the polar ice caps are melting which has caused almost
65 percent of the polar ice caps to melt since 1979 the earth loses on average 400 billion tons of
ice each year that's like a giant block of ice 4 miles long on each side 64 cubic miles that melts
and is added to the ocean the oceans filled with too much water in the Shores like in Louisiana
can't hold all that water and coastal regions get flooded and destroyed.
11. What practical ways can a person do to help solve the problem of climate change?
Climate change also causes more frequent and intense natural disasters such as hurricanes floods
tornadoes heat waves and droughts so the question is how do we stop this instead of burning fossil fuels
we need to convert to renewable energy such as solar and wind power which he met zero carbon
emissions when operating energy from the Sun and the wind are infinite unlike fossil fuels we will never
run out of them more solar energy falls on the earth in one hour than all the energy that our civilizations
consume in one year civil engineers from the solutions project calculated that we could power most of
the world with only renewable energy if we just actually decided to do it if we cut back on people or
station not only does that reduce the amount of fossil fuels burned but there will be more plants and
forests actively absorbing carbon dioxide if we use more reusable and renewable resources this will
reduce the amount of energy needed to create new products this will also reduce the massive amount of
landfill dumping that we do that all sounds like great efficient and healthy ideas but how can I help
personally right now you can drive an electric or fuel-efficient car replacing your regular car with the
Toyota Prius the average person can prevent the emission of about one ton of carbon dioxide into the
atmosphere now we all can't afford to just buy new in different cars so to help you can walk or bike places
take public transportation or if anything ease off the accelerator and make your car as efficient as possible

use energy-efficient lightbulbs led lightbulbs use only a fraction of the power of incandescent lightbulbs
air dry your clothes instead of using power guzzling machine like dryers turn off electronics or lights when
you're not using them eat less meat or no meat at all by replacing an omnivorous diet with a vegan diet
the average person can prevent the emission of about 1.5 tons of co2 into the atmosphere reduce reuse
recycle and of course spread your knowledge and concerns of climate change remember climate change
is drastically affecting planet earth our home and although we are the problem, we can also be the
solution
