I have decided to focus global warming in the Atlantic Ocean. This is important to me because fish count for a large percent of our food source and if we don't have it it will be much harder to live. And with global warming it's taking out fish habitats and they don't have their food source so they die. My goals for this project is to see whats causing this and what can prevent it or slow it. To measure my goals I'll probably just review all the information I get and see whati have.

I learned that global warming thought to come from the greenhouse effect, the greenhouse effect is a natural process that warms the earths surface. And it's able to do this from certain gases in the atmosphere trapping heat from the sun and preventing it from radiating back into space, instead it radiates back to the earth,so it's like earth gets twice the heat. These gases are:water vapor, carbon dioxide and methane,and that there are artificially-produced chlorofluorocarbons ( chlorofluorocarbons are commonly used in refrigerants and aerosol propellants, and they're harmful to the ozone lay) , known as CFC's, they're really effective greenhouse agents. I just used the website reference.com and from here i just need to find out how exactly global warming is in the Atlantic ocean.

Global warming is effecting the currents, and the currents transports warm, surface waters toward the North and South and cold water to deep waters toward the Equator. When these warm waters go North they put off heat into the atmosphere and turn cooler and denser. And as they do, they sink and flow southward in the deep ocean. In the Arctic, the currents help with winter temperatures in the high altitudes. And so, excessive amounts of freshwater are dumped into the North Atlantic and could alter seawater density and with time, effect the flow of the North Atlantic ocean current. This means that Global Warming has boosted freshwater runoff from the glaciers melt water with precipitation. I went to nationalgeogaphics.com and cbc.com and from here i just need to know exactly were the global warming came from.

The cause of global warming is mainly due to the Industrial Revolution.The Industrial Revolution took place from the 18 to 19 and was where rural societies in Europe and America became industrial and urban. Humans have increasingly been contributing unnatural sources of greenhouse gases into the system, causing the system to become unbalanced. Also, excessive emissions from human sources has caused their levels to rise to where it is no longer maintainable. The Industrial Revolution was the using and burning of fossil fuses and it almost immediately affected the climate. By a new study,it was revealed that the actually warming in some regions actually began as early as the 1830's. But Global Warming did not start at the same time all across the planet. The tropical oceans and the Arctic were the first places to begin warming in the 1830's. Europe, America, and Asia saw the first signs of warming about twenty years later. And the southern hemisphere began to see the affects of global warming a lot later with Australasia and South America starting to warm in the early 20th century. This continental-scale time lag is still showing signs to this day with some parts of Antarctica having begun to warm, a sign of warming over the planet in general isn't detectable. Industrialization marked a shift to powered, special-purpose machinery, factories and mass production. The iron and textile industries, along with the development of the steam engine, played central roles in the Industrial Revolution, which also saw improved systems of transportation, communication and banking.
