Introduction

            I am a student from the 5/6 Pine Tree AGM class.  We are doing web sites on the environment's problems and I chose global warming as my problem.  If your opinion differs, there is a link at the bottom of the page showing the other side of the argument.

Problem

       Global warming is a very serious problem.  The theory is that the ozone is depleting all the time due to carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.  Once the ozone depletes to much, the earth will not have its powerful shield and the sun's harmful rays will come through causing skin cancer and many other diseases.

Cause

       Global warming is caused by green house gases such as carbon dioxide.  These gases literally eat away the ozone layer that protects us from the sun.  One of the things that cause greenhouse gases are internal combustion engines.

Solutions

        There are many possible solutions to lessen global warming, though we can't stop it.  For one, we could carpool or even stop riding in cars.  We  could walk or ride a bike.  Other ways include using less house-hold cleaners, shut down
coal and gas burning power plants, and replace incandescent light bulbs with compact flourescent bulbs.
