Climate change involves complex issues and facts that go beyond the sound clip of global warming, the increase in the average temperature of the Earth's near-surface air and oceans since the mid-20th century and its projected continuation.

Changes in greenhouse gas concentrations due to human activity such as the burning of fossil fuels have overtaken the Earth's capacity to self correct natural events such as volcanic eruptions.

The increasing global temperature changes will cause continuing retreat of glaciers, permafrost, and sea ice, causing sea levels to rise; extreme weather events will increase and the amount and pattern of precipitation will change resulting in the expansion of subtropical deserts, changes in agricultural yields and species extinctions.

Quote from Nigel Calder, a British science writer ~ “Enthusiasm for the global-warming scare also ensures that heatwaves make headlines, while contrary symptoms, such as this winter’s billion-dollar loss of Californian crops to unusual frost, are relegated to the business pages. The early arrival of migrant birds in spring provides colourful evidence for a recent warming of the northern lands. But did anyone tell you that in east Antarctica the Adélie penguins and Cape petrels are turning up at their spring nesting sites around nine days later than they did 50 years ago? While sea-ice has diminished in the Arctic since 1978, it has grown by 8% in the Southern Ocean.”

Poster text: Global Warming is an increase in global average surface temperature resulting from an increase in the amount of carbon dioxide and other gases in the atmosphere.

Global warming is a serious problem, but with some info YOU are up to the challenge of doing your part. Here are some earth friendly steps you can take...

On the road - Drive or ride in cars less
• Take your bike
• Walk
• Car pool
• Hop on the bus and train
• Walk into fast food restaurants instead of using the drive through.

At home
• Turn off the lights
• Buy compact flourescent bulbs
• Run you dishwasher only with a full-load
• Unplug electronics (cell phone chargers) when not in use
• Take shorter showers and turn off water when brushing your teeth.

At your yard
• Use a push mower to mow your grass
• Air dry your clothes on a line outdoors
• Plant a tree – Trees suck up carbon dioxide and make clean air for us to breathe.

At the store
• Bring cloth bags to the market
• Buy products with less packaging
• Buy items made locally to reduce the energy required to drive the products to your store
• Buy organic food – Chemicals used in modern agriculture pollute the water wupply and require energy to produce
• Make sure to buy appliances with the energy star label. This label indicates appliances use less electricity.

TAKE ACTION - write, call, email. Do you part for global warming, and CONTACT, LOCAL, STATE, and NATIONAL LEADERS to urge support for efforts that reduce carbon emissions.
