This Interactive Qualifying Project evaluates and discusses the issues surrounding Global Warming and suggests strategies for mitigating the many negative effects that society will encounter. Global Warming is the direct result of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane gas, nitrous oxide, and above all, water vapor. This project uses computer modeling to project future levels of carbon dioxide concentrations through a seven carbon reservoir model. Ultimately, emissions must be reduced and a form of carbon storage should be implemented.
