INTRODUCTION INTRODUCTION Climate change does not happen in one area but it may happened all over the world. There are multiple ways humans may lead to global warming or increase climate change such as greenhouse gas, aerosols, and cloudiness. The possible cause and effect of climate change are greenhouse gases and aerosols. The changes of incoming solar radiation and outgoing infrared radiation affects the Earthâ€™s atmosphere. Movements of the particles would lead to cooling of the climate system. (European Environment Agency, ND) For this research, our group and Iâ€™s plant will be doing is basil seeds. The scientific name is called Ocimum basilicum, which came from photosynthesis. The food chain for this species is that the producer is the basil, that gets the energy from the sun. The secondary producer is the Japanese beetle, it eats the basil plant. Then, the tertiary consumer would be cardinals eating the Japanese beetle. (Grant, ND)

METHODS To create this experiment, our treatment group is made up of basil seeds and our control group is also made up of basil seeds. For our sample size, we have a total 6 cups of algae, 3 cups for our control group and 3 cups for our experimental group. The length of study for this experiment will take 10 days. The measuring tools we will need for this experiment are measuring cups and a ruler. The experimental treatment for this experiment is that the temperature will increase. For the control group, the treatment will have normal conditions.

For our experimental group, the pre data is 0 centimeters and the post data is .57 centimeters. The percentage for the experimental group is 57%. Our pre data for the control group is 0 centimeters and the post data is 1.57 centimeters. The percentage for the control group is 157%. Overall, there is a 100% difference between control and experimental group.
DIS CUS SION
The investigation for this project is how does increase climate temperature affect basil plants? And for our hypothesis question is, if increased temperature act on basil plants then it will grow faster than the control group. Our hypothesis was proven because the experimental group grew taller than the control group. The human impact causing climate change is greenhouse gas, aerosols, and cloudiness. From the transformation of incoming solar radiation and outgoing infrared radiation, can change Earthâ€™s atmosphere which the movements of the particles can start to cooling of the climate system. (European Environment Agency, ND). In the food chain, the basil plant belongs to the trophic level one and the tertiary consumers are the insects. According to our experiment, if the human impact the food chain, basil plant will grow quickly. Humans should know what they are impacting in the world. Otherwise, plants are required about 6-8 hours of sunlight to grow faster by global warming. Humans should be more careful on what their doing because it can affect our society.
