  • Coal Seam Gas Environmental Effects

    Coal Seam Gas (CSM) which some refer to as Coal Bed Methane (CBM) is one of the forms of unconventional gases that is located in coals deep in underground earth layers. The process of CSM extraction involves digging deep wells in earth, casing the wells for protection and pumping out gases and water which is already in the coals. Recovering these types of resources sometimes require simulations and fracking coal beds which involves the usage of water and chemicals. In addition, these acts of…

  • Major Effects Of Global Warming

    immediate danger. Humans are causing climate changes due to which the average temperature of the earth has risen over the past one decade. Many man-made and natural processes cause the global warming that continues to affect our environment. Greenhouse gases are the main cause of global warming. Human beings have raised carbon dioxide in the atmosphere with their activities, such as deforestation, and burning fossil fuels. The other major causes of global warming is population growth, pollution,…

  • Negative Effects Of Non Renewable Energy

    Have you ever heard the terms “Renewable Energy” and “Non-Renewable Energy?” What is renewable vs non-renewable energy? What does it mean to the billions of humans all around the world? To start, renewable energy are resources that can be used multiple times, replenished quickly, and never runs out or dies (Salata, 2015). Some examples of renewable energy are solar, wind, biomass, geothermal, and hydropower. Non-renewable energy are resources that are used once and that is all, fossil fuel such…

  • The Greenhouse Effect: Thermal Energy And Global Warming

    which certain gases in the Earth’s atmosphere trap infrared radiation emitted from the Earth and re-radiate it in all directions. This causes additional heating of the Earth. As the radiation from the Sun is absorbed by the Earth’s surface, the energy is converted to thermal energy. Then, the Earth radiates lower-energy infrared radiation back out to the atmosphere and space. The Earth’s atmosphere and clouds absorb this infrared energy and radiation directed from the Sun by greenhouse gases.…

  • Global Warming Causes

    temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere. This gradual increase in temperature is caused mostly by greenhouse gases in Earth’s atmosphere which include carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, water vapor, and ozone. Normally, these gases are essential in the process of the greenhouse effect which is supposed to keep the Earth from being too hot or cold. Unfortunately, the amount of these gases in the atmosphere has increased due to human activity and this in turn is causing the planet to become…

  • Argumentative Essay On Climate Change

    What is Climate Change? Climate change has been a subject of discussion in the media for many years, supported with the use of arguments against oil polluting the environment and extreme scare tactics of Polar icecaps flooding civilians backyards. The issue has been ignored by the majority of laypeople as seeming too complicated, and with all the conflicting information in the media in the past, who can blame theme? However, scientifically, climate change and what perpetrates it is fairly…

  • Essay On The Periodic Table Of Elements

    These families, shown and labeled in figure 2, include alkali metals, alkaline earth metals, transition metals, non-metals, metalloids, halogen gases, noble gases, lanthanides (or rare earth metals), and actinides (or rare earth metals). The first family includes group 1 on the periodic table. These metals are extremely reactive as they have 1 electron in their outer orbits. Hydrogen is included in this…

  • Essay On Carbon Tax

    Every fossil fuel, coal, oil and gas is composed of carbon and hydrogen atoms, oxidizing these atoms releases their heat energy into the atmosphere. Natural gases have the highest hydrogen per carbon index, meaning it is a very low carbon intensive fuel. Coal is just the opposite, this means that burning these fuels releases CO2 into the air, trapping heat from the surface therefor warming the planet. A carbon dioxide tax means that users of fossil fuels will pay for the environmental damage…
