Climate Change

Global Warming View Powerpoint

by 2007 ~ Rafael Paul
Presented to Nursing 4111 Class, Fall 2007

This fourth year student created a Powerpoint Presentation that artistically showcased the gravity of Global Warming."The atmospheric concentrations of CO2 and methane (CH4) have increased by 31% and 149% respectively above pre-industrial level since 1750. This is considerably higher than at any time during the last 650,000 years, period for which reliable data has been extracted from ice cores. From less direct geological evidence it is believed that CO2 values this high were last attained 20 million years ago."

Global Warming

by 2007 ~ Jenifer Jensen
Created for Nursing 3225 Class, Spring 2007

View WebsiteThis third year student created a Website that also showcased the gravity of Global Warming. "Local climate throughout the world plays a huge part in the prevalence of some diseases, as well as in other threats to human health. Loss of life is directly affected by extreme temperatures, while the incidence of serious infectious diseases is indirectly impacted by climate-related disturbances in ecological systems, such as changes in the range of infective parasites (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 2007). Region of habitation, relative vulnerability of population groups, extent and duration of exposure to climate change itself, and society's ability to adapt to or cope with the change are all factors that affect the extent and nature of impact climate change will have on human health. At the same time, the quality of medical care and public health systems may lessen this impact (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 2007)."
