  • Their Emissions Under The Kyoto Protocol
    1,112 words
    Kyoto? As the amount of greenhouse gas emissions increases a plan of action has been introduced, know as the 'Kyoto Protocol. ' As of July 2002 seventy-six of earth's one-hundred ninety countries have agreed to cut their emissions under the 'Kyoto Protocol. ' However, only Japan has set some goals, that currently seem unattainable. Alberta, and many of the people and businesses in Alberta are opposed the the protocol which Canada has chosen to accept. Climate change is a serious, global, long-te...
  • Reduction Of The Carbon Dioxide Emissions
    2,482 words
    Is the Kyoto Protocol the Wrong Approach? Climate change is a relevant issue today that should be on the minds of people. In 1972, scientists discovered that CFC's (chlorofluorocarbons) might destroy the ozone layer. In 1985, scientists discovered that the destruction of the ozone layer was occurring quite rapidly and recommended that country leaders should take action as soon as possible to decrease CFC levels. In 1987, in Montreal, representatives from all over the world, came together to ban ...
  • Global Co 2 Emissions From Fossil Fuels
    1,169 words
    Overall, emissions of CO 2 increased by 0.3% to 6.8 tons per person in the United States. Emissions of greenhouse gases other than carbon dioxide, which account for 17% of total greenhouse gas emissions, declined by 0.6%. Emissions from the industrial sector declined 1.3% even though the U.S. economy grew 3.9% in 1998. However, CO 2 emissions from transportation grew by 2.4% while CO 2 emissions of regulated utilities expanded by 3.2% as a result of a hotter than normal summer. Overall, 1999 U.S...

  • Effects Of Global Warming On Other Countries
    1,830 words
    Speech: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Fellow delegates, I am here to talk to you today to explain global warming and its effects, and why the US must ratify the Kyoto Protocol if we are to reduce global warming. Global warming is the term used about the fact that the Earth is heating up. Global warming is also generalised as "the greenhouse effect". When heat from the sun enters a greenhouse through the glass most of the heat is captured inside and this is the exact same effect that is causing global w...
  • Cent Of The World's Greenhouse Gases
    633 words
    SCIENCE RESEARCH PROJECT ALL COUNTRIES SHOULD REDUCE GREENHOUSE EMISSIONS. Without the greenhouse effect the Earth would not be warm enough for humans to live, but if it becomes even a little warmer there will be major problems. The greenhouse effect is the rise in temperature the Earth experiences because certain gases in the atmosphere (water vapour, carbon dioxide, nitrous and methane, for example) trap energy from the sun, forming greenhouse-like layer. Average global temperatures have incre...
  • Wide Emissions Of Green House Gases
    1,618 words
    Global Warming Long ago the earth was conceived in a fiery blast of volcanoes and molten lava. The earth cooled and life was spawned. From the first bacterium that swam in a new ocean thru just before the industrial revolution climate, lacking any external factors, has steadily changed. But since the industrialization of civilization, the climate of the earth has faced an ever growing foreign factor. This factor is the emissions of the so called "greenhouse gases" that have caused the rapid incr...
