  Global warming is a serious problem
Updated 22 February 2004, 12.17
Antarctica
Global warming is affecting our Earth and those that live on it, including many animals.

In Gemma's report she says that we should be doing more to respect the only world we have.

"Scientists estimate, that in the next 100 years the Earth will heat up by 3C.

That is too much for the world to heat up by in a century. We need to stop it!

The main place where it is easier to see it heating up is Antarctica.

If Antarctica gets too hot too quickly all the glaciers will start to melt.

This means gigantic pieces of ice falling in to the seas and oceans forming icebergs.

Take for granted

The main causes of global warming is due to us humans.

We take electricity for granted and do not realize we are damaging the world's atmosphere in an attempt to see at night and keep ourselves warm.

One world

But it is not too late to stop this and turn it around.

Teachers should be teaching the change in climate to help young children and adults alike to live healthily.

Remember we only have the one world, so treat it with respect whilst you still can."

Gemma, 12, Watford
