How does the increase in human population world-wide impact climate change and what solutions can we create to combat climate change? by Mind Map: How does the increase in human population world-wide impact climate change and what solutions can we create to combat climate change?

1. Human Population Increase

1.1. is due to

1.1.1. advances in medical knowledge

1.1.1.1. which increases

1.1.1.1.1. life expectancy

1.1.1.1.2. birth rates

1.1.2. higher crop production

1.2. causes

1.2.1. increased industrial productivity for material goods

1.2.1.1. leads to increased use of

1.2.1.1.1. coal

1.2.1.1.2. oil

1.2.1.1.3. other carbon emitting natural resources

1.2.2. more machinery required in farm/ crop production

1.2.3. more farm animals bred for human use

1.2.3.1. leads to

1.2.3.1.1. methane production

1.2.4. deforestation

1.2.4.1. due to

1.2.4.1.1. increased lumber use

1.3. 1 billion in 1800

1.3.1. increased by more than 7x

1.3.1.1. 7.7 billion in 2019

1.4. World Population History

1.4.1. this link includes

1.4.1.1. different historical events to increase human population/migration worldwide

2. Increased Carbon emissions

2.1. up 40 percent since 1790!

2.2. increases effects of the greenhouse gases

2.2.1. demo

2.2.2. which include

2.2.2.1. methane CH4

2.2.2.2. CO2

2.2.2.3. Nitrous Oxide NO2

2.2.3. at high concentrations will

2.2.3.1. prevent heat from escaping from earth

2.2.3.1.1. causes unnatural warming

3. What is Climate Change?

3.1. Climate

3.1.1. describes

3.1.1.1. statistical average of that region of these conditions

3.1.1.1.1. temperature

3.1.1.1.2. humidity

3.1.1.1.3. percipitation

3.1.1.1.4. cloudiness

3.1.1.1.5. air pressure

3.1.1.1.6. Visibility

3.1.1.1.7. Wind

3.1.1.2. extreme weather events

3.1.1.3. year to year variations

3.1.1.4. Seasonal cycles

3.1.2. changes can indicate

3.1.2.1. global warming

3.2. Weather

3.2.1. describes

3.2.1.1. daily, in the moment, present tense of these conditions

3.2.2. cannot indicate

3.2.2.1. large-scale global warming

3.2.3. can be intensified by

3.2.3.1. global warming

3.3. caused by

3.3.1. light/ heat energy from sun

3.3.1.1. reflected back by atmosphere into space

3.3.1.2. absorbed and trapped by the atmosphere's gases in Earth

3.3.1.2.1. is called

3.3.1.3. absorbed and re-emitted back into space

3.3.2. Earth's increasing energy budget

3.3.2.1. is a term for

3.3.2.1.1. radiation going in and not leaving the earth

4. innovations to combat climate change

4.1. limits on human population

4.1.1. increased birth control forms/access

4.1.2. legislation to limit births

4.1.2.1. China's 1 child policy

4.1.2.1.1. can create

4.1.3. questions about

4.1.3.1. morality of such limits

4.1.3.1.1. look back at

4.2. limits on carbon emmisions

4.2.1. taxes on company production of CO2 emissions

4.3. technology to use/decrease carbon emmissions

4.3.1. legislation for increasing forests and tree planting

4.3.2. 5 tech innovations that could save us from climate change

4.4. creation of technology to substitute carbon emissions

4.4.1. solar power

4.4.2. hydro power

4.4.3. wind power

4.4.4. geothermal energy
