Global warming
Glaciers are melting , sea levels are rising and clouds forest are drying. In the news you hear about extreme heat waves, storms and flooding all around the world. Actually, last week there was extreme flooding in Houston where thousand of people had to be rescued from the raging water. This worldwide trend is called Global warming.

Lots of you may be thinking what is global warming and how do we stop it? Don't worry, but the end of this speech you will know what is global warming, what the world is doing to help stop it and what you can do to help.
Big Idea 1
Related imageThe history of global warming, Global warming is discovered in 1896 about 121 years ago. There was a man called Svante Arrhenius and he was a chemist. He was the first person to find out that if you put Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere it makes it hotter. But nobody believed him until 1938 when a engineer named Giuet Suve decided to look at the earth temperature and record it for the next 50 years. He find out that the earth is getting hotter and each year at an alarming rate. This discovery lead to many scientist working together to find out what was causing the earth's quickly rising temperature.

Big Idea 2
What causes Global warming? It is a simple answer. Global warming is case by use humans. When we drive vehicles we burn petrol and oil which makes gases, when we burn forests down and use factories they create smoke that is full of gases. This is bad because it makes the greenhouse effect thicker. Know you be thinking what is greenhouse effect?

Basically around the earth is a layer of gases called the atmosphere. This lets in some of the sun's radiation and keeps the earth from getting too hot or too cold. Without it all life on earth would die.  The greenhouse effect is when smoke from cars and factories that humans make hit the atmosphere and start making a circle or layer around the earth that traps the sun's heat in. This is not good.

Big Idea 3
How can we help to stop global warming? If we don’t do anything to stop global warming this could result in humans dying. Here is some steps to stop global warming.
  • Plant more and more trees.
  • Reduce,reuse and recycle.
  • Use less hot water and air container.
  • Turn of electronic devices when not in use.
  • Drive less drive smart .
  • Use the off switch.
  • Encourage others to help .

Concluding Statement
I know that if we all work together we can protect our planet Earth from global warming. By following the simple advice I have shared with you today, together we can protect the planet. As Dr Seuss once said “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It's not.” Start caring today!
