11/7/2012 13:26:05YesThe Temperature and weather varies. The seasons change, and when the seasons change climate also changes with it. When the earth/atmosphere traps gases and the suns radiation in the atmosphere.Both or dependsToo much of the suns radiation could harm living things.NoPlants and some animals need climate change in order to live. Some only live during certain seasons or climate.Not all living organism can adjust or live in all types of climate.There is a lot of debate about global warming and what climates or activity may or may not have caused it. Caron dioxide, vapors, and methane. It is a contributing factor to the greenhouse effect.

11/7/2012 13:27:35YesThe climate has been recorded to have gotten warmer and the north pole is melting. A published study from a reliable source.The greenhouse effect is how the ozone layer keeps carbon dioxide within our atmosphere, keeping our planet warm. Both or dependsThe planet needs to be warm for us to live here, but if it's too warm, it would be unpleasant and the melted poles might flood the oceans. NoIt might be easier for plants to grow, which would provide more food for consumers. Flooded oceans could harm coastlines and animals that live in cold climates could die in the heat. Some people say that the climate isn't changing and not everyone wants to reduce carbon dioxide because they don't think it's worthwhile.Carbon dioxide The burning of fossil fuels adds carbon to the atmosphere, which makes the Earth warmer.
6
11/7/2012 13:27:49YesThere have been studies reguarding temoerature increase that have proven a change in overall tempertature, which affects the climateWeather patterns changing, humidity level changingThe greenhouse effect is gases getting trapped in the Ozone layer and increasing the temperatureBoth or dependsThe Greenhouse affect is good for plants that grow better in a warmer environment, however it is bad for some animals that are losing their habitats due to the increase in temperature.NoSome plants grow better with warmer weatherIce caps melting, water salidity in the ocean changing, temperature too high for some animalsWhat we should do/if we should do anything to stop it.Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen, OxygenThe burning of fossil fuels increases the greenhouse effect.
7
11/7/2012 13:28:27YesThe weather is getting colder than it was in the summer time.Snow is comming soon which indicates a climate change because it doesnt snow in the summergases in the atmosphere that absorb radiation from the sun which in return makes the earth warmerBoth or dependsWithout the greenhouse effect the earth would get no heat from the sun and we would all freeze, but with too much of the greenhouse effect it could make the earth too warm.NoIt could mean warmer weather to provide cropsif the weather gets cold than it could kill crops which means not as much foodim not sureCarbon, Nirtogen, Oxygenit increases the amount of radiation from the sun absorbed because it puts more CO2 in the atmosphere

11/7/2012 13:28:31Yesthe wether is not the same everydaydatagreenhouse gases going into the atmosphereHarmfulit ruins the o zoneNoit can be better for the animalsit can become to warm or to cold. or cause droughtsglobal warmingfossil fuels, carbon, nitrogenit makes more greenhouse gases
9
11/7/2012 13:28:47Nothe climate is weather over time.know the weather over a period of time.The greenhouse effect is sun rays being trapped in the atmosphere and in which they can not escape.HarmfulIt is melting the polar ice caps and raising the ocean water level.Nolonger summers.It gets too hot and things die quicker.Are humans causing it?Nitrogen, Carbon, HydrogenIt adds more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere
10
11/7/2012 13:29:17YesGlobal warminghow much the average temp. has gone up in the las 100 yearsthe warming of the earthBoth or dependshelps us contain heat, but can over heat the earthNobetter conditions for plantsanimals might become extinctglobal warmingCarbon dioxide, Ozone,and water vapor, It increases greenhouse gases
11
11/7/2012 13:29:24YesIncrease in Global TemperatureProof that there is global warming.Gases in the atmosphere that keep heat in the Earth.Both or dependsGreenhouse gases keep the Earth warm, but lead to an increase in Earth's temperatures.NoBetter conditions for plantsAnimals losing their homes.CFC's increase global warmingCarbon dioxide, water vapor, OzoneAdds carbon dioxide in the air
12
11/7/2012 13:29:28YesI think the climate is changing because of global warming.I would need to know the definition of each climate and see if that fits what the weather is like in that area. The greenhouse effect is the natural warming of the earths surface through the burning of greenhouse gases.Both or dependsWe need the greenhouse effect to keep the earth warm but too much warming can lead to melting of glaciers and global warming.YesSome of the benefits of climate change in the biosphere is that certain parts of the world will experience warmer weather.The glaciers will melt.There are arguments about global warming. Three major greenhouse gases are carbon, nitrogen and hydrogen.The burning of fossil fuels can increase the effect of global warming.
13
11/7/2012 13:29:44Yesbecause the weather changesSeasons When the burning of fossil fuels creates a hole in the atmosphereHarmfulIf we deplete the atmosphere then we will get to much of the suns rays and it will be unbearable NoIt will always be warm and crops will not dieIt will never be cold and it will not rain and then animals and plants will have to adapt or they will dieGlobal Warming carbon dioxideIt makes it worse
14
11/7/2012 13:29:45Yesthe ice caps melting.to see of CO2 emissions have as much effect on the climate as scientists claim they do.when CO2 is trapped in the atmosphere and slowly destroys it.Both or dependsit could have positive effects by helping more tropical plants grow with the slight increase in heat or it could possibly destroy our ice caps Nomight allow more tropical plants to grow.it could destroy our ice cappsthat global warming is/isn't happeningnitrogen, carbon, and methaneit increases CO2 emmisions
15
11/7/2012 13:30:03YesThe climate is always changing because of global warming and greenhouse gases.The tilt of the Earth causes the climate to change.Its when all of the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere convert the suns rays into heat warming the Earth. Both or dependsWe need greenhouse gases to warm the Earth, but too much greenhouse gases can warm the Earth too much causing global warming. NoKeeping us warm.Being too warm, causing ice caps to melt by the poles. The arguments are about global warming. Carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and carbon monoxide.It increases it because we are releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, one of the major greenhouse gases.
16
11/7/2012 13:30:30YesThe winters are becoming warmer.Changing in seasons.Giving off green house gases.HarmfulIt puts harmful gases into the atmosphere.NoIt will effect the weather and it will not rain as much or snow It will destroy places.Global warming is happeningCarbon dioxideIt increases the green house gases
17
11/7/2012 13:30:36YesGlobal warmingthe ice caps meltinggreenhouse gasses trapping heat in the atmosphereBoth or dependsIt is beneficial because it it hotter and i like the heat, and its harmful because global warming, some animals are loosing their habitat.Noplaces get warmer.animals loose their habitat, like polar bears.Global Warmingcarbon, CO2, methainIt adds greenhouse gases to the air.

11/7/2012 13:30:48Nothe earth can expiriance different changes in temperature but theres no evidence that its going to permanant or thet its not going to go back to how it was.you would have to have evidence to disprove my statementthe greenhouse effect is the heating and cooling of earths surface due to gases in the atmosphereBeneficialthe greenhouse effect keeps our ewarth at an equal temperature and helps keep it stable.Nosome places that were super cold before arent as cold now and some places that were super hot before aren't as hotsome animals can't adapt as quickly to climate change so they diewhether or not we are going to go through another ice age or that were going to get flooded by all the polar ice caps meltingCarbon Dioxide, Nitrogen, and Oxygenthe burning of fossil fuels changes the amounts of gases in the atmosphere and its getting holes in it from too much carbon dioxide mixing with other elements.
19
11/7/2012 13:31:10Yesglobal warmingproof like graphs over the yearswhen heat comes in and cannot go outBoth or dependssometimes it helps sometimes it hurtsNowarmer instead of colderthe icebergs are melting and more waterglobal warminghydrogen oxygen nitrogenits negatively effects them
20
11/7/2012 13:31:26Yesthe climate is always changing, for example the temperature.it rainsthe ozone traps co2 in the atmosphere to make the air warm.Both or dependsits good because it provides warmth but it can be to warm and melt the poles wich is bad.Noit can rain to give plants water and sunny to give them energyburning fossil fuels to increase greenhouse effecti have no ideaco2,it ads more co2 making the temperature higher
21
11/7/2012 13:31:40Yesglobal warmingproof like graphs over the yearswhen heat comes in and cannot go outBoth or dependssometimes it helps sometimes it hurtsNowarmer instead of colderthe icebergs are melting and more waterglobal warminghydrogen oxygen nitrogenits negatively effects them
22
11/7/2012 13:34:18YesThe ice caps at the poles are beginning to melt, and the ocean in warmingWhat other parts of the climate are changingThe greenhouse effect is the unnatural heating of the atmosphere due to the increase of gasses in the atmosphere.Both or dependsIt is harmful because it is causing the ice caps to melt, putting more water in the ocean, and decreasing the salinity of the water, which can disturb the ecosystems.NoIt can increase the temperature for organisms that need a warmer climate.The warming climate can cause the sea levels to rise, which can flood the land harming the land.Whether or not the climate is really changing.Carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and hydrogenIt releases Carbon Dioxide into the atmosphere, which contributes to the greenhouse effect.
23
11/7/2012 13:42:22YesThe weather goes from hot to coldthe seasonsthe gases that surround the earth that prtect us form uv raysBeneficialprotects usNoseasonsanimals are not used to itweather it is chaging or not?carbonit makes it go away/ not helping us anymore
