Global Climate Change
Author: Michael Penzo
This On-Demand webinar provides an overview of climate change and its global impacts. With the increase in concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere (carbon dioxide, methane and water vapor), the average annual temperature of the earth is rising.
The effects of global climate change include sea level rise, leading to the inundation of coastal cities, severe weather (hurricanes, tornadoes, drought and floods. While climate change has occurred during earth history, since the industrial revolution in the 1850’s, when we first started the extensive burning of coal and oil, the increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from 260 ppm to 400 ppm has led in an increase in average temperature of 1 degree centigrade.
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of fifteen (15) questions to earn 2 PDH credit.
