Global Warming

Author: Graciela Rudzik

Why is vocabulary instruction so important?Students need to be able to understand the words, knowledge of a word not only implies a definition, but also implies how that word fits into the world.

Stahl, 2005.

Acquiring and building knowledge through reading means not just recognizing academic words, but having a deep understanding of them.

What is global warming, and what are some solutions to Global warming in Latin America?

What is Global Warming?

Over the past 50 years, the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history.NRDC.ORG

A gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth's atmosphere generally attributed to the greenhouse effect caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, and other pollutants.Dictionary. com

What causes global warming?Global warming occurs when carbon dioxide (CO2) and other air pollutants and greenhouse gases collect in the atmosphere and absorb sunlight and solar radiation that have bounced off the earth’s surface. Normally, this radiation would escape into space—but these pollutants, which can last for years to centuries in the atmosphere, trap the heat and cause the planet to get hotter. That's what's known as the greenhouse effect.NRDC.ORG

What is global warming?What are some solutions to Global Warming in Latin America?

Tropical deforestation is a major cause of climate change; and, unfortunately, Latin America is no stranger to this issue—more forests have been destroyed in this region than in any other since the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change was adopted in 1992. With 40 percent of its landmass covered by tropical forests, many Latin American countries have a tremendous opportunity to reduce their global warming emissions. Leaders on tropical forest management have emerged in the region and are advancing innovative solutions.One standout is Costa Rica, which aims to be carbon neutral (have zero net greenhouse gas emissions) by 2021. Already a green leader with 96 percent of its electricity coming from renewable sources, Costa Rica has increased its forested area by 10 percent in the last decade. Another notable is Brazil, which has demonstrated the enormous potential of reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation as well as the potential of biofuels for reducing emissions from vehicles. Detailed analyses of publicly available satellite photos show that Brazil has reduced deforestation in the Amazon enough over the past five years to lower heat-trapping emissions more than any other country on Earth.Source:https://www.climatehotmap.org/global-warming-solutions/latin-america.html

SHORT, RICH TEXTS.1. A committed Latin American engagement should be based on the idea that improved environmental management can go hand-in-hand with economic growth."Many of the actions needed to reduce the region's emissions and adapt to climate change make sense from economic and social perspectives – and often from a financial perspective as well -- regardless of climate concerns," the report emphasizes. Adopting a low-carbon development path will be beneficial for the region's competitiveness, especially if the world's technological frontier moves in the direction of low carbon technologies.Source:https://www.climatehotmap.org/global-warming-solutions/latin-america.html

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is an important heat-trapping (greenhouse) gas, which is released through human activities such as deforestation and burning fossil fuels, as well as natural processes such as respiration and volcanic eruptions. The first graph shows atmospheric CO2 levels measured at Mauna Loa Observatory, Hawaii, in recent years, with average seasonal cycle removed. The second graph shows CO2 levels during the last three glacial cycles, as reconstructed from ice cores.Reducing EmissionsThe region has piloted new technologies and approaches to reduce emissions:Mexico's 2007 National Strategy on Climate Change adopts long-term, nonbinding targets. In the energy sector, the strategy identifies a total mitigation potential of 107 million tons of greenhouse gasses by 2014, a 21 percent reduction from business as usual over the next six years.Source: https://climate.nasa.gov/vital-signs/carbon-dioxide/

Solutions to global warming across the varied countries of Latin America include pursuing new policies to curb deforestation and forest degradation; reducing emissions from cars, trucks and buses; and promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy.Latin America is home to a number of rapidly developing nations and vast tropical forest reserves, putting it under the watchful eye of the international community. Four countries in this region make the global top 30 list of highest annual CO2 emitters, namely Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, and Venezuela (using 2008 data). Brazil quickly rises to the top five if emissions from deforestation are included. The region also faces a range of climate impacts, including threats to drinking water resources due to the shrinking ice pack in the Andes mountains and potential reductions in crop yields and flooding due to sea-level rise.Source:https://www.climatehotmap.org/global-warming-solutions/latin-america.html

Now is your turn

Now is your turn.We have a small set of academic vocabulary.We have words that are key to understanding texts.Words that occur frequently.Words that have cross disciplines (general and academic).Have multiple meanings.Again, the big questions:What is Global Warming?What are some solutions to Global Warming in Latin America?Why do you need to understand the concept of Thermal conductivity?Choose 15 words and talk about those words with your classmates.Solve the "Vocabulary log" with your team.With your team create a memory word game and a hangman game.Author: Graciela Rudzik
