Stop over chemical reacting!!: Intro to the Carbon Cycle

Climate change is occurring because of a phenomenon that is also a very basic chemical reaction. When fossil fuels burn, carbon dioxide is produced. Usually, this reaction balances out as carbon dioxide is then used during photosynthesis. However, the amount of carbon being produced currently, due to our overuse of fossil fuels, is tipping this delicate balance. We'll talk more about the effects later on...in the meantime let's learn about how to reduce the ways WE start chemical reactions that create carbon. Use the link below to measure your carbon footprint.

    What's one way you can either offset or limit the amount of carbon you are producing?

    Lowkey was boring, but it's worth the points
  • Reflection Question
    Electricity Intro to the Carbon Cycle
    1. Where does carbon originate? 2. How is carbon released? 3. Where does carbon go once it's released? 4. What is the connection between carbon change, fossil fuel use, and the carbon cycle?

    1. From life. 
    2. Carbon is released when humans and animals exhale. Additionally, Carbon dioxide is released through the production of energy. id est; burning fossil fuels, coal, etc.
    3. Into the atmosphere.
    4. Carbon is entering the atmosphere at an increased rate, which in turn, makes the earth hotter, resulting in climate change. This is caused be the burning of fossil fuel. The cycle of fuel burning and being released is known as the carbon cycle.
