CARBON DIOXIDE EMISSION LEVELS
Definition: The current rise in
average temperature of Earth’s
oceans and atmosphere.
How it affects living beings:
Sea Ice &amp; Glaciers Melt
Birds stay up North
More intense hurricanes
Sea level rises
Yes
DO THESE MODELS SUPPORT “GLOBAL WARMING????”
CONCLUSIONS……


For both sets of data the graphs
linear graphs increase. In
particular both sets of data show
that as more time passed, both
the average yearly temperature
and the carbon emissions levels
increased.
However the correlation is
stronger for carbon emissions
than that for measuring the
average yearly temperature. This
is indicated by each correlation
coefficient.

These results indicate that global
warming is an issue that needs to
studied for the future of the planet.
