Biology 1101 Lab Climate Change Assignment Climate change (a phenomenon broader than one of its components, global warming) is a complex issue that involves a broad range of scientific disciplines. Much of what we hear in media reports of climate change is inaccurate and often misleading. In this assignment, you will examine basic information about climate change, observe how some scientists gather climate data, and see a few of the effects of change on humans and other species. Bear in mind this is only a smattering of available information; I urge you to find out more. Go to Click on “Global Temperature” 1. 9 of the 10 warmest years on record have occurred since 2000 . Click on “Carbon Dioxide” 2. Carbon dioxide levels in the air are at their highest in 650000 years. Scroll down the page to the section containing “Evidence”, “Causes”, “Effects”, and “Solutions”. Click on “Causes.” 3. What is the “greenhouse effect”? 4. What gases contribute to the greenhouse effect?
