Research Question:
How do greenhouse gas emissions give an impact to the Arctic sea ice?

Hypothesis:
1. A statement that predicts what will happen. Use the structure: ‘If…then…because…’
2. For the ‘because’ part you need to give scientific reasoning so after you have done your research, state in parentheses ( ) the author of the source that helped you decide on your hypothesis. [Remember to write the full source at the end in the Works Cited list.]

My prediction is that the Artic Ice will change state into water much more rapidly.
This is because the world’s emissions of greenhouse gases are increasing especially C02, which gives a big impact to the world climate to change. Since C02 is a greenhouse gas this means that when C02 exits the atmosphere some of it reflects back to earth, this changes the temperature inside the earth. The cause of this problem is that us humans produce to many gases. For example, we use factories, cars, burning coal and have a major use of oil production, which releases methane, C02, nitrous oxide etc. Which warms our atmosphere that acts like a blanket. Since the world is getting developed we will need more productions of fossil fuels, factories, electricity etc. it will release more greenhouse gases into the earth’s environment. Therefore, the Arctic ice will melt because of the increase of atmospheric C02. Furthermore, animals that live in cold climates can get extinct from our world. Such as polar bears, penguins, whales etc.
Observations and Raw Data:
1. Present observations in a logically designed table that is easy to read.
2. Give each table a detailed title that includes the independent variable and the dependent variable.
3. Each column heading should contain the name of the quantity being measured and the units of measurement.

Raw results Table:
20 years time period

    Carbon Dioxide (CO2), a chemical made up of one carbon atom and two oxygen atoms, is a non-flammable, odorless and colorless gas that exists naturally in the atmosphere. CO2 is one of the greenhouse gases, amongst methane, nitrous oxide and other gases, which keeps the Earth’s temperature habitable (UCAR). Without it, the Earth will be inhospitably cold. However, ever since the mid-nineteenths century, humans have significantly increased the amount of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere, creating an imbalance. The gradual increase in CO2 concentration have been driving what is called global warming, which describes the current phenomenon of the increase in temperature of the Earth's surface and…

    Greenhouse Gases: Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a greenhouse gas in the atmosphere that may raise average temperatures on Earth. The burning of fossil fuels could be responsible for the increased levels of carbon dioxide. If current trends continue, future concentrations of atmospheric carbon dioxide in parts per million (ppm) could reach the levels shown in the accompanying table. The CO2 concentration in the year 2000 was greater than it had been at any time in the previous 160,000 years.…

    Greenhouse Gases

    Many chemical compounds found in the Earth’s atmosphere act as “greenhouse gases.” These gases allow sunlight to enter the atmosphere freely. When sunlight strikes the Earth’s surface, some of it is reflected back towards space as infrared radiation (heat). Greenhouse gases absorb this infrared radiation and trap the heat in the atmosphere. Over time, the amount of energy sent from the sun to the Earth’s surface should be about the same as the amount of energy radiated back into space, leaving the temperature of the Earth’s surface roughly constant. Greenhouse gases greatly affect the temperature of the Earth. Without them, Earth's surface would average about 33°C colder than the present average of 14 °C (57 °F). However, due to certain human activities, there is an increase in the amount of greenhouse gases causing the earth to “warm” but we will talk about that later.…
