What is Climate Change? o Climate change is the result of long-term significant changes in our weather patterns. o In understanding global climate changes it is necessary to combine many disciplines, including oceanography, meteorology, geomorphology, geology and paleoclimatology. o Climate change can be natural or caused by changes people have made to the land or atmosphere.

Causes of Climate Interruption Natural Causes • Continental Drift • Volcanoes • The Earth's Tilt • Ocean Currents Continental DriftVolcanoes Ocean Current Earth’s Tilt

Causes of Climate Interruption • Major cause of climate change. • 97% of climate scientists agree that climate-warming trends over the past century are very likely due to human activities. • Deforestation, Burning of Fossil Fuels, Air Pollution are the main results of global warming caused by humans which eventually changes the climate. Human Causes

Climate-Sensitive Diseases


Facts… Urban air pollution causes about 1.2 million deaths every year. Rising temperatures and variable precipitation are likely to decrease the production of staple foods in many of the poorest regions – by up to 50% by 2020 in some African countries.This will increase the prevalence of malnutrition, which currently cause 3.5 million deaths every year.

Facts… Studies suggest that climate change could expose an additional 2 billion people to dengue transmission by the 2080 the modest warming that has occurred since the 1970s was already causing over 140 000 excess deaths annually by the year 2004

What Can We Do? Think & Share ideas ! Try something on your own ! Reduce, Reuse & Recycle! Live a Eco-Friendly Life !
