  • Carbon Footprint

    Carbon and Ecological Footprints The Carbon Footprint is a measurement system to find out the amount of greenhouse gases we emit due to human activities starting from individuals to the whole population of the Earth in a given amount of time, and is stated in tons of carbon dioxide (CO2). It is basically the sum of carbon dioxide emissions generated due to our activities and is typically measured per year. The activities could either be from an individual, organization, event, product, city, nation or the whole world. The activities include all those which result in copious amounts of carbon dioxide emissions such as burning of fossil fuels, engine fuel burnt while driving your car (carbon dioxide emission will vary according to the type of…

  • Carbon Sequestration

    weather, but this has been proven to not be the case. This increase in temperature has been determined to be caused by excess amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide traps sunlight in the atmosphere which makes the earth warmer. The excess amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is a serious issue that causes global warming. Three solutions have been brought up to solve this problem and they include, decreasing human dependence of fossil fuels, using more…

  • Carbon Emissions

    Our world has been in a constant limbo dealing with the atmospheric environment threatened by emissions and carbon dioxide. For centuries, nations have gathered to cultivate ideas on how to decrease the cause of these gases and how to save the future of this planet. The solutions they came up with were to reduce the uses of carbon emitting products, buy different types of equipment, etcetera. The question everyone asks themselves before changing their ways is “Do I really want to do this?” The…

  • Carbon Life Cycle

    Cycles of Elements required for life Carbon cycle All living things are made of carbon. It is also part of the ocean, rocks and even air. Earth is a dynamic place so the carbon does not stay. It is moving in the atmosphere where the carbon is attached to some oxygen in a gas called carbon dioxide. We all know that plants use carbon dioxide and sunlight to make their own food and grow. The carbon becomes part of the plant. Plants that die and buried will turn into fossil fuels made of…

  • Essay On Carbon Cycle

    The Carbon Cycle Addition of carbon to the atmosphere Respiration: Through respiration, carbon dioxide can be added to the atmosphere. Living organisms use respiration to turn food into usable energy. Aerobic respiration requires oxygen to take place, and produces carbon dioxide, releasing it into the air and atmosphere. The energy taken from the food molecules following digestion is used to fuel the organism, additionally when mixed with oxygen, releases carbon dioxide when exhaling.…

  • What Is The Carbon Cycle?

    Carbon Cycling Internal Achievement Standard Science 90953: Demonstrate understanding of carbon cycling Carbon Cycling Internal What is the Carbon Cycle? Carbon is a key component in all living organisms and can be found in both living and nonliving organisms. Organisms will continue to contain carbon even when they change or decay. Carbon is found in a variety of living things and can exist as a solid e.g coal and diamonds, a liquid e.g crude oil or a gas, for example CO2…

  • Carbon Sequestration Essay

    Chapter One : INTRODUCTION 1.1. Background The phrase "carbon sequestration" refers to efforts to capture excess carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere, condense it, and store it in some benign way (Kirschbaum, 2003). In the same note, carbon sequestration is the removal of the CO2 from the atmosphere by storing it in the biosphere. Forests are known as standing stores of sequestered atmospheric carbon. Given the increased importance of a forest ecosystem as valuable carbon pool, it draws…
