Mankind's Ecological Footprint
 
Experts have measured the amount of food, energy and materials used by humans and the amount of land and sea needed to absorb the waste. This is called mankind's ecological footprint. Now humans are creating more waste than the earth can cope with. Humans are also using up the earth's natural resources quicker than it can make new ones.

Global Warming
 
Many experts think that the temperature of the earth is rising because waste gasses are trapping heat like glass in a greenhouse. The rise in temperature is melting the ice at the North and South Poles. The water from the melted ice is causing floods around the world.

Use public transport.
Recycle as much waste as you can.
Only buy goods from companies who look after the environment.
Write to your Member of Parliament and ask 'What are you doing to stop global warming?'

Greenhouse Gases
 
The earth can only absorb a certain amount of a gas called carbon dioxide (CO2). Humans are producing more waste CO2 than the earth can cope with. The extra gas is buliding up in the atmosphere and causing the earth to heat up like a greenhouse. This is called global warming.
