So the greenhouse effect is the main cause of global warming on Earth. This is because more greenhouse gases are being released into the atmosphere by various different human activities, such as the combustion of fossil fuels (releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere). This then traps more heat, from the sun, in the Earth's atmosphere which then causes biological/ecological effects.

This global warming, even though the temperature has only increased by a few degrees, causes global climates to change. In turn, this effects ecosystems as certain plants and animals may no longer be adapted to the new climate of their habitat and so they will not be able to survive. A widely known example of this is melting of polar ice caps and land ice causing the loss of habitat of Polar bears as well as a rise in sea levels.

Measuring the carbon footprint of an amusement park would be very difficult as there are many things to consider. You would have to take into account the amount of electricity used up by each attraction, café, etc. each day.
