Jaclyn Friedlander here and I have been twitter challenged Ice Bucket Challenge style, (screams as ice is dumped on head) to hold my breath as long as I can either on the surface or underwater to bring awareness to global warming. So I am going to accept the challenge and let’s see how long I can hold my breath for. Global warming is the increase of Earth’s average surface temperature due to greenhouse gases that collect in the atmosphere like a thickening blanket, trapping the sun’s heat and causing the planet to warm up There is more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere today than at any point in the last 800,000 years. Global warming puts coral reefs in danger. As the ocean warms the resulting changing conditions are causing bleaching incidents killing the coral. Things you can do to prevent global warming? Recycle, use less air-conditioning and heat, turn off lights when you’re not in the room and plant a tree.
So there we go. So now I challenge the people whose names appear on the screen right now and if you want to try, also feel free to make a video and leave it in the comments below. And I will see you next Friends with Fins Friday. Thanks for watching..
