Help with a climate presentation please?

Well on the 23rd of october im going to be doing a powerpoint presentation on the effects of climate change (these have to shock the listener), the reasons why global warming is happening and how to stop it.

Now as i have such a short time to gather research im wondering if anyone on GD can help me by posting any useful links for anything related or give me any tips on how to deliver the presentation as ive never done a real one before. The audience will be young people (e.g 14 - 20ish) so i need to make it relavent but also interesting for them.

(sorry for any spelling/grammer mistakes i dont have word )

Re: Help with a climate presentation please?

Watch that Al Gore film.

You could pretty much just do that.

I haven't seen it yet though...

How old are you? Why are you doing this? Why must it be shocking?

Re: Help with a climate presentation please?

I have just watched the Al Gore film and it was very informative but im not willing to believe it all until i find facts on what he has said elsewhere.
im 16
Im doing this to earn a bit of money and to help out a friend of mine in Youth service, i offered to do the presentation for them to the young people as it will probably sound better comeing from me, someone there own age, than an adult of a different generation.
It has to be shocking because the whole idea of the "conference" im talking at is to promate recycling and energy saving and to promote the awareness of the enviroment.
thanks for the link TK

Re: Help with a climate presentation please?

13 days is actually quite long if you only have to make a presentation about global warming

Especially if you base it on internet sources

Relate it to how they can make a change, for example switching lights off and all that b*llocks

I would not think that going in too heavy with facts would help as they would lose interest. Perhaps things like "when you are 30 the price of gas will have tripled" (which it probably will!)

When i do presentations at work (slightly different target audience but what the hey!) I always try and do an icebreaker exercise. Its very cliched but it does relax your audience and encourages them to participate. The worst thing is when you get to the end of the show and there are no Questions. That would mean that you have either covered of EVERYTHING there is to know about global warming, or that they simply arent interested.

I try(!) and do this by taking lots of different topics, doing the prep on them and only scratching the surface, leaving a lot of room for questions on the subject.

So you could talk a little about:

Fuel usage
Effects on the environment
Social responsibilities
Corporate responsibilities (an area which i feel needs a lot more focus)
New research and ideas/initiatives
etc etc

And let the audience develop the most interesting areas.

Please dont quote me on any of this as i am simply rambling from experience and i know little of the facts.

Good luck!

I can see how no questions would make a rather embaressing/ awkward situation so i will probably end up doing some of that.

Ill probably talk about all of these especially the corporate problems and the social solutions to empthasis the corporate "badness" on the issue and the things that ordinary people can do to help. "every little helps etc etc
thanks for the tips

Re: Help with a climate presentation please?

If i were you i'd do the talk with the following topics

WHAT IS CLIMATE CHANGE?

This is your introduction. Talk basically about the Earth and the weather. Effect of the sun (heating the equator) causing wind and the transfer of heat causing ocean currents etc. Mention the fact that there have been changes in the climate of earth in the past (what were they) and the belief held by the scientific community that we are about to undergo another change.

WHAT CAUSES CLIMATE CHANGE?

What has caused climate change in the past:
Volcanic erruptions
Sun spot cycle
etc
What is causing climate change at the moment:
Mention ozone layer, fosil fuel burning, deforestation etc

Also mention "feedback mechanisms" such as:
* Polar ice melting / heavy rainfall in Europe increases fresh water supply to the ocean current system running from the equator in America to Northern Europe (whose name i can't remember at the moment).
* Increased temperature in the tundra (siberia) is leading to the melting of the permafrost which has a further effect. The methane stored underneath the permafrost escapes (methane is a "bad" gas with respect to global warming ... worse than CO2) and there's massive amounts of it.
* Increased temperatures (Spring has advance a day per year for the past decade or so in Siberia or Canada or something) which has affected the breeding pattern of some insect in the north which used to only breed every two years but now breeds every year. As such there's mass infestations (plagues) of these creatures. As they need to eat they are stripping the leaves from the trees in the north. Without leaves the trees die creating "dead land" which as it is darker than land with trees on it attracts more heat further fueling the problem of climate change.

WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE GOING TO BE?

* Temperature changes (most places getting hotter ... the equator will become uninhabitable)
* Weather changes (predicted increases in the number and general strength of hurricanes etc)
* Flooding (the ice caps melt and the water rises ... show a general world map of areas affected noting the number of displaced people especially in areas like Bangladesh ... then show a "revised map of the UK" ... you might want to ask people if they have any relatives who live in areas projected to be under water)
* Loss of biodiversity
* Economic effect of all this (including effect on stockmarket and thus on pensions etc ... in short this will affect everyone)

WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP AVERT CLIMATE CHANGE?

The biggest polluters are Industry so you would have to pressure the Government to make any changes. Tell your audience how you can do this.

End on a positive note by stating the small changes people can make i.e. recycling, not wasting energy etc.

Not to be pedantic. But it is actually mostly sheep

50% of our total emissions come from methane, which comes from animals, which is why we can't do very much about our climate change statistics.

In fact, if we didn't have such an agrarian economy based almost entirely upon primary production everything would be honky dory in regards to our Kyoto obligations. As it stands we have practically no way of meeting our targets, as farmers tend to dislike policies that advocate killing all the animals.

The governments current solution is to build more wind farms and hope the problem goes away. Of course this is nonsense, over 70% of our electricity comes from renewable resources already (Hydro mostly).

I don't know why I wrote all that. Expanding the worlds knowledge I suppose.

Re: Help with a climate presentation please?

Science will save us! Or at least: quasi-scientific speculation from Australia will save us! Thank you Yahwe for that ray of hope.

The current proposal for a tax on methane emmissions from sheep and cows seems to be the latest insane idea coming from government. The farmers were very angry! They got on their tractors and drove to Parliament! "Fart Tax? Over our dead bodies!"

In this case i think it's fairer to say that evolution has provided a way

all we need do is get people to stop eating beef and lamb and switch to kangaroo

These might fit the shocking requirement.
