    Question Image
    The global temperature will likely be higher in 2020 than in 2010.
    The global temperature was likely higher in 1960 than in 1970.
    The global temperature likely deviated from the average less in 1960 than in 1970.

  • Q8
    Historically black sea bass lived in coastal waters from North Carolina to Massachusetts. They were rarely found as far north as the Gulf of Maine. In recent decades black sea bass have become plentiful enough in the Gulf of Maine to be fished commercially. How could this increase in population of black sea bass be evidence of climate change?
    Black sea bass prefer warmer water than was in the Gulf of Maine in the 1970s.
    Black sea bass prefer cooler water than was in the Gulf of Maine in the 1970s.
    Black sea bass prefer deeper water than was in the Gulf of Maine in the 1970s.
    Black sea bass prefer shallower water than was in the Gulf of Maine in the 1970s.

  • Q9
    The graph shows the temperature of the ocean's surface since 1960. Suppose this trend continues. What prediction about hurricanes is BEST supported by the data?
    Question Image
    Hurricanes will likely be more powerful and more frequent.
    Hurricanes will likely be more powerful but less frequent.
    Hurricanes will likely be less powerful and less frequent.
    Hurricanes will likely be less powerful but more frequent.

  • Q10
    The Torres Strait Islands are low islands off the coast of Australia. How would an increase in global temperature MOST likely make the islands uninhabitable?
    It could cause the ocean temperature to rise and kill fish eaten by the island people.
    It could cause plants to grow more rapidly causing vegetation to overtake the islands.
    It could cause a change to weather patterns so rain no longer fell on the islands.
    It could cause glacial ice melt raising sea levels until the islands were flooded.
