Climate Change True/False
Directions: Use what you know about climate change to decide if each statement is true or false.
1. True or False: Without the greenhouse effect, life on Earth wouldn’t be possible.
2. True or False: Greenhouse gases act like a blanket—they trap heat in the atmosphere and warm
the planet.
3. True or False: The majority of human-caused greenhouse gas emissions come from burning
fossil fuels.
4. True or False: Unlike the oceans, the Hudson River won’t rise due to climate change.
5. True or False: The following gases are not greenhouse gases: nitrous oxide (N20), methane (CH4)
and water vapor (H20).
6. True or False: Along with burning fossil fuels, humans release greenhouse gases through
changing land use, such as deforestation and clearing land.
7. True or False: The only impact communities in the Hudson Valley will experience from climate
change is increased temperatures.
8. True or False: The only thing we can do to prevent climate change is decrease the use of fossil
fuels (for example, drive less) and consume less energy (unplug electronics when not in use, use
CFL lightbulbs).
9. True or False: Climate change refers only to the increase in Earth’s temperatures.
10. True or False: In the last 30 years, average yearly temperatures in New York State have risen
nearly 2° F.
