Assignment

In this project you must:

-Show sources of climate change that are man-made
-Give examples of what we can do to combat climate change

Your final product can be in whatever format suits you best:

    • How long they last in atmosphere
    • Where they are coming from
  • Natural Effects
    • Detail the greenhouse effect
