  • Negative Impacts Of Climate Change

    The dictionary defines climate change as a weather change. However, from a scientific perspective it is a change in global climate pattern, and it is a long-term change in average weather conditions that is most affected by human activities. According to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the carbon dioxide is 40% higher than preindustrial times. It can be stated that the main concept of climate change is the increase levels of carbon dioxide, produced by the…

  • Summary: Are Humans Causing Climate Change

    the aviation industry would like to admit” (Taber 7). Each time an aircraft is used, it adds more CO2 into the atmosphere, causing climate change. Aircrafts contribute to the increasing carbon dioxide that come from human sources. These crafts emit gases and particles high in the atmosphere by doing so; they damage the ozone layer. Aircraft engines produce emissions that are similar to other emissions produced by fossil fuel combustion. When fuel is burned, the carbon in the fuel is released and…

  • Global Temperature

    image to the right shows the percentage of U.S greenhouse gas emissions in 2013 (Overview of Greenhouse Gases, 2015). Greenhouse gases work by letting visible and ultraviolet light in sunlight to pass through the atmosphere of the Earth and reach the surface. When the light then strikes the Earth’s surface it is reflected back into the atmosphere as heat or infrared energy and greenhouse gases absorb the heat which, as a result, makes the Earth’s temperature slowly increase (Angelle, 2010). The…

  • How Does Deforestation Increase The Level Of Carbon Dioxide

    This carbon is what makes them a source of energy. But when we burn coal, oil, and natural gas for fuel, too much carbon enters the atmosphere at one time. The carbon combines with oxygen to form carbon dioxide (CO2), a greenhouse gas. Greenhouse gases are contributing to global warming because they trap more of the Sun's energy in the Earth's atmosphere therefore, this causes global warming. Burning of coal and diesel releases sulphur dioxide gas. This gas is extremely corrosive and suffocating…

  • Effect Of Carbon Dioxide On Climate Change

    Earth's concentration of carbon is high, than there will also be an increase in the Earth’s land temperature because of greenhouse gases that are created over time resulting in the warm up the earth’s land. Background Information: The earth is kept warmer than it should be because of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. They retain heat. One of the greenhouse gases that have the biggest effect is Carbon dioxide which is released into that atmosphere through cell respiration in living…

  • How Did Demitri Mendeleeve Invented The Periodic Table

    Demitri Mendeleeve was a Russian chemist who invented the first periodic table in 1869. The periodic table he made was very different from the modern day periodic table we know today. Henry Moseley updated Mendeleev's version of the periodic table in 1915. This is more like the periodic table that we know and use today. The only difference is that there has been many more elements added. Mendeleeve also had predicted a lot of the characteristics and properties of elements that would fill up…

  • The Influence Of Climate Change On Humanity

    Average global air temperatures are already 1.5 degrees higher than they were at the start of the 20th century, and have risen about 1 degree over just the last 30 years. Scientists have discover some of the causes for these drastic changes. Greenhouse gases, according to scientists are the main culprit for climate changes. Also, humanity force is another cause for the drastic climate changes we are facing today. Finally, solar variability accounts for most or all of the warming in the late…
