Global Climate Change Effect Quiz: Trivia!

What do you know about global climate change effects? Earth’s climate is now changing faster than at any other point in the history of modern civilization. It is primarily because of the ignorance of human beings. Global warming is the long-term heating of the earth’s climate system observed, and it is a threat to our planet. This smart quiz will keep you informed of global climate change consequences.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    There is sufficient evidence evidence to show that worldwide global climate change is occurring.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 2. 
    Effects of global climate change that have been observed include:
    • A. 

      Increased melting of arctic ice cover, glaciers and mountain snows

    • B. 

      Increased coral reef destruction due to changing ocean conditions

    • C. 

      Decrease in amount/intensity of extreme weather events worldwide (wildfires, heat waves, storms, etc.)

    • D. 

      Rising temperatures in Summer

    • E. 

      Falling temperatures in Winter

    • F. 

      Shorter growing seasons for plants

    • G. 

      Rising sea levels

    • H. 

      Migratory birds traveling shorter distances between summer/winter habitats

  • 3. 
    What additional effects have been projected to occur as global climate change continues?
    • A. 

      Significant changes to coastal communities due to erosion and flooding

    • B. 

      Habitat loss, ecosystem destruction and acidifying oceans will cause the range and distributions of species to change, with over a million species expected to go extinct

    • C. 

      Freshwater and food shortages in some places

    • D. 

      Decrease in insect-borne illnesses

    • E. 

      Increase of extreme weather such as flooding, droughts, heat waves, and powerful storms

    • F. 

      Better air quality in cities

    • G. 

      Disruption of the ocean conveyor belt which could trigger a mini-Ice Age in Western Europe

  • 4. 
    The Greenhouse Effect is a natural process that allows Earth's atmosphere to trap heat and keep the Earth's temperature at a habitable level. This occurs because greenhouse gases in the atmosphere prevent infrared radiation from escaping the atmosphere, producing a global warming effect. Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere include:
    • A. 

      Water Vapor

    • B. 

      Carbon Dioxide

    • C. 

      Nitrogen

    • D. 

      Methane

      Oxygen

    • F. 

      Argon

    • G. 

      Nitrous Oxide

  • 5.

    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False, the percentage was lower

    • C. 

      False, the percentage was higher

    • D. 

      False, GHG emissions have not increased

  • 6. 
    Carbon dioxide emissions, primarily from electricity generation and transportation, account for most of the USA’s greenhouse gas production.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 7. 
    100W light bulb left on for 10 hours burns approximately 1 pound of coal.
