Introduction Are plants considered to be cooler than humans? Well plants have developed a smarter, cleaner and cheaper way to produce energy. This method is known as photosynthesis which simply converts sunlight, carbon dioxide and water into usable energy (carbohydrates) and oxygen (which is released). Although humans have a variety of energy sources, such as fossil fuels and wind turbines, most of these methods are expensive and harmful. For instance, the burning of fossil fuels increased the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere which contributed to global warming.
Carbon dioxide is mainly produced by burning of fossil fuel either by cars or factories. Humans need a way to reduce the concentration of CO2 in the atmospheric. By using carbon dioxide as the gas source in enhanced oil recovery, we can reduce CO2 that being is being released to the atmosphere. However, every method has its own respective negative impacts too. Thus, by using carbon dioxide enhanced oil recovery, oil and gas companies can increase the oil production and reduced the emission of carbon dioxide into atmosphere but it will also lead to increase in investment.
2. Brief analysis/warrant (How/Why this is important? )This shows how if we continue to pollute our atmosphere by emitting greenhouse gases such as carbon into our atmosphere, it will cause more natural disasters which will be more severe due to the rising temperatures which will allow for more severe storms, which is all a result from emissions. II. Conclusion A. Restate Thesis to remind the audience of your position: It can be said from the previous examples that global warming and climate change are both caused by human emission of greenhouse gases which result in consequences such as warmer temperatures and severe natural disasters.
Carbon from the atmosphere is absorbed into plants during photosynthesis and when the plant decays or is burnt that carbon goes back into the atmosphere. Because it is a cycle, the next crop of plants absorb that carbon over again, so this process does not contribute much to the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. 3.2 Cons of Biomass Energy 3.2.1 Requires Space Big areas are required for all the different processes that is required in harnessing energy from biomass. The areas that are needed for storing can be particular large and may lead to deforestation. 3.2.2 Emissions The principal concerns about emissions and the impact of combustion systems on air quality are in relation to carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide (〖CO〗_2 and CO), small particulates (PM10 and PM2.5; particles smaller than 10 microns and 2.5 microns respectively), oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and sulfur dioxide (〖SO〗_2).
There is primary pollution that goes straight into the air to pollute it and secondary pollution. this occurs when pollutants in the air have a chemical reaction. This is very effective against the atmosphere. But if we all use different sources like battery powered cars ten we could use our limited supply of fossil fuels for other more important things, or just leave it alone. Not only is there battery powered cars, but we also have wind powered cars.
Climate Change affects everybody in the world, even though some choose to ignore it, which is why it would be in humanity’s best interest to come together and find a solution. Burning fossil fuels and the increase of greenhouse gases is causing the earth to warm. Although this gas is the source of the problem we still need it, without this gas the earth would be very cold. What the greenhouse effect is a layer of gas that surrounds the earth,
Nowadays, the most common type of vehicle that we have is a conventional vehicle that uses fossil fuel as its main power source. A conventional vehicle that works with fossil fuel produces harmful chemicals as by-products. Since it has big drawback to our environment and health, people started to find alternatives to fossil fuel. Hydrogen showed up as one possible substitution, which produces much energy and non-polluting by producing energy from combusting hydrogen. Hydrogen cars use hydrogen gas to power an electric motor and this is called a fuel cell.
Climate change has been occurring over the decades but it is just getting worse and more greenhouse gases are getting trapped in the atmosphere and trapping heat energy from the sun along with it. If humans are so small and can create a mess so big we can clean it up too because it is evident that humans have caused an increase in chemicals and pollution that has altered the chemical composition of the atmosphere which ultimately causes the climate change we see
With the rising threat of global warming, mostly due to the drastic increase in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from a multitude of sources such as; fossil fuels, animal waste products, the burning of forest and other vegetation etc. Normally the increase in Co2 emissions wouldn’t be that big of a problem as it would later be absorbed by plants containing chlorophyll, which would later be broken down into its base elements (carbon and oxygen). (Pickering) The carbon would be stored within the plant while the oxygen would be released into the atmosphere, this provided a balance between the output (due to respiration) and removal (due to photosynthesis) of carbon dioxide. (Pickering)(Undeerc.org) But that balance has slowly began to tip in favor of CO2, primarily due to the vast amounts transportation as well as the estimated fact that nearly eighteen million acres of forest land is lost each year greatly diminishing the amount of photosynthesis that is carried out throughout the year. (Bradford)With the rapid loss of these vast forests, extensive research has been put into finding alternative ways to power the world's technology without contributing to new CO2 emissions into
This is changing the natural systems that take place in our atmosphere. When all these extra gases are released, carbon dioxide stars to accumulate in the atmosphere. Climate change is a global issue because when the temperature of the Earth changes even very slightly, it can cause droughts and our crops can die. This is affecting our food supply. Also, when water levels rise even slightly, it can be very destructive for
