Diamond 9: Predicted impacts of global
Key: Long term impacts = Short term impacts =
Reminder of key terms:
• Global warming: Rising emissions of greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide and methane) are causing an increase in global climate
• Renewable: Resources that can be used again e.g. solar power, hydroelectric power
• Non- renewable: Resources that will eventually run out i.e. fossil fuels (coal, oil, gas)
So…what is the biggest issue?
I think the most significant issue is….
