"Jane Genovese is a public speaker, university graduate of Law and Arts
(majoring in Psychology) and passionate global warming advocate. She
became concerned about global warming after reading an article on Artic
Eskimos losing their way of life due to rapid climate change. This
motivated her to study Environmental law and International Environmental
law at university. Shortly after, she created the “Global Warming: Too Hot
to Handle?” workshop and this book with her mother, Sharon. In her spare
time, Jane enjoys salsa dancing, watching good documentaries and going
to the gym."......
Global warming is the rising average temperature of Earth's atmosphere and oceans since the late 19th century and its projected continuation. Since the early 20th century, Earth's average surface temperature has increased by about 0.8 °C, with about two thirds of the increase occurring since 1980. Warming of the climate system is unequivocal, and scientists are more than 90% certain that most of it is caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases produced by human activities such as deforestation and the burning of fossil fuels.
Glaciers are melting, sea levels are rising, cloud forests are drying, and wildlife is scrambling to keep pace. It's becoming clear that humans have caused most of the past century's warming by releasing heat-trapping gases as we power our modern lives. Called greenhouse gases, their levels are higher now than in the last 650,000 years.
Scientists predict the earth is facing 40-to-60 years of climate change, even if emissions of carbon dioxide and other global warming gases stopped today. One inevitable consequence of the greenhouse gases already in the atmosphere will be an increase in the frequency and severity of natural disaster events. Global Warming, Natural Hazards, and Emergency Management documents the imperative need for communities to prepare for the coming effects of climate change and provides a series of in-depth, road-tested recommendations on how to reduce risks for communities and businesses.
"Energy for a Warming World" challenges the commonplace notion that the amount of power which mankind can potentially harness from renewable resources is more than large enough to assuage future demand levels. By examining the renewable issue from an electrical engineering perspective, and exercising due regard for the limited capability of current and future electrical generation and transmission systems, this book attempts to provide more realistic statistics for the levels of power which could be extracted from sustainable resources in the critical time frame of 30 to 40 years....
This book addresses the theme of the impacts of global warming on different specific fields, ranging from the regional and global economy, to agriculture, human health, urban areas, land vegetation, marine areas and mangroves. Despite the volume of scientific work that has been undertaken in relation to each of each of these issues, the study of the impacts of global warming upon them is a relatively recent and unexplored topic. The chapters of this book offer a broad overview of potential applications of global warming science.
Explores public and government involvement in combating global warming, and reviews conservation programs that have been developed by countries, international institutions, private organizations, and individuals.Global warming is the rising average temperature of Earth's atmosphere and oceans since the late 19th century and its projected continuation.

Global Warming has become perhaps the most complicated issue being faced by world leaders. Thus, it requires field of attention for many modern societies, power and energy engineers, academicians, researchers and stakeholders. The so-called consensus in the past century anthropogenically induced Global Warming, has recently been disputed by rising number of climate change panelists.
Invite you to consult the text book "Under the warm sea" below for further reference in the process of teaching English to children, with illustrated images for specific service to help children easily absorb, with the parents have little English beginner, this is useful references.
This book is one result of a research project, funded by the Energy Foundation and the Council on Foreign Relations, toinvestigate the role of “technology policy” as part of a strategy for managing the threats of global warming.
Bài thuyết trình Global warming bao gồm những nội dung về Global warming basic (khái niệm, nguyên nhân, hậu quả (sự thay đổi khí hậu, ảnh hưởng tới sức khỏe, biển và băng, ảnh hưởng tới hệ sinh thái). Với các bạn chuyên ngành Môi trường thì đây là tài liệu hữu ích,
Trước mỗi tiết học tiếng Anh, đặc biệt là các tiết học kĩ năng thực hành tiếng, giáo viên thường “khởi động” bài học bằng một warm-up activity. Hoạt động này không khó, tuy nhiên rất dễ dẫn tới nhàm chán. Bài viết hôm nay muốn giới thiệu một cách hoạt động khởi động mới giúp các giáo viên tham khảo.
“The earth is a natural greenhouse and is kept warm by water vapors, carbon dioxide (CO2), and other gases in the atmosphere, which absorb the sun’s energy and radiate it back toward the earth. This type of warming is called ‘natural greenhouse effect’. ‘Enhanced greenhouse effect’, on the other hand, causes global warming due to excessive levels of CO2 in the atmosphere.”
Average temperatures have climbed 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit (0.
Writing warm ups grews out several presonal taching concerns. The first was the need of teaching situations to support, suplement, or spplant work done in the students core writing warm ups offers 70 such actives that add an element of surprise to the regular classroom lesson.
The second concern was the need for writing materrials that can be used in varity of teaching.
Một giờ học nghe sẽ thực sự hiệu quả nếu giáo viên biết cách làm cho bài nghe trở nên sinh động, thú vị và lôi cuốn được học viên. Một trong những điều đầu tiên người giáo viên có thể làm là chuấn bị thật tốt cho hoạt động "warm-up" (khởi động). Trên thực tế, một giờ học nghe có thực sự hiệu quả hay không phụ thuộc phần lớn vào việc học viên đã được warm-up như thế nào.

Winter in many places means ice skating, sledding and snowball fights. But
unless someone is prepared, outdoor fun can also mean frostbite and
hypothermia. Today we talk about how to stay warm, dry and safe.
Frostbite is damage that happens when skin is exposed to extreme cold for
too long. It mainly happens on the hands, feet, nose and ears.
The failure of the UN climate change summit in Copenhagen in December 2009 to effectively reach a global agreement on emission reduction targets, led many within the developing world to view this as a reversal of the Kyoto Protocol and an attempt by the developed nations to shirk out of their responsibility for climate change.
