ozone layer thereby allowing significantly stronger gamma rays W r i t i n g
Global warming is:
Question 1 options:
The gradual increase in the world’s temperature due to the use of wood for heating and cooking.
The gradual increase in the world’s temperature due to the increase in population.
The gradual increase in the world’s temperature as a result of the specific use of gasoline and diesel in cars.
The gradual increase in the world’s temperature as a result of the burning of fossil fuels and the deforestation of the planet.
Question 2 (1 point)
The greenhouse effect refers to:
Question 2 options:
The effect whereby increased levels of greenhouse gases trap heat in the atmosphere, causing the Earth’s temperature to rise.
The effect whereby increased levels of greenhouse gases are destroying the ozone layer thereby allowing significantly stronger gamma rays from the sun to directly raise the Earth’s core temperture.
The effect whereby increased levels of greenhouse gases are created by the increased levels of food grown and raised to feed an ever-increasing world population.
The effect whereby increased levels of carbon monoxide are creating an artificial solarium out of much of the earth.
Question 3 (1 point)
The Kyoto Protocol is:
Question 3 options:
an international agreement to lower gas emissions by using smaller, emission free vehicles pioneered in Kyoto, Japan.
an international agreement championed by a joint effort between Canada and the United States to reduce gas emissions.
an international agreement to ensure that the destructive effect of greenhouse gases do not destroy the cultural heritage artifacts of Kyoto, Japan.
an international agreement to establish greenhouse gas (GHG) emission targets for industrialized countries .
Question 4 (1 point)
Ozone depletion refers to
Question 4 options:
the thinning of the Earth’s ozone layer, largely as a result of the increased release of greenhouse gases.
the thinning of the Earth’s ozone layer, largely as a result of the increased population expelling more Carbon Monoxide; the composition of which breaks down ozone.
the release chlorofluorocarbons into the troposphere which cause a thinning of the ozone layer.
the thinning of the Earth’s ozone layer, largely as a result of the greenhouse effect.
Question 5 (1 point)
Question 5 options:
are responsible for the greenhouse effect
are a result of global warming
are a result of the Aurora Borealis
Question 6 (1 point)
The Montreal Protocol
Question 6 options:
was established by the United Nations Environment Programme to phase out the use of ozone depleting chemicals.
was a direct response to the Kyoto Protocol as it introduced a Canadian alternative to the emission free vehicles.
established a set of standards for each of the signatory nations whereby they contributed to the erosion of the ozone layer within a set time period.
set out the standards by which greenhouse gas emissions would be permitted by signatory nations.
