[tags: greenhouse gases, climate change, global warming] - The Effects of Burning Carbon Dioxide The main waste product of fuel we burn is carbon dioxide, which is thought to have been the main factor in the gradual rise of global temperatures of the last hundred years. The mechanism used to explain the rise in temperature is the greenhouse effect.Infrared radiation is trapped by atmospheric gases.There are many sources of production of carbon dioxide.For example, combustion of coals or hydrocarbons,from volcanic eruptions and places where carbonate rocks are located in the thin Earth’s crust.As such, the effects of these levels are not known to civilization as data gathered from the ice cores drilled in the Antarctica only shows data up to 650,000 years ago....[tags: greenhouse gases, climate change, global warming] - Since the industrial revolution, scientists have documented a trend of increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2), the main greenhouse gas.[tags: regression analysis, global warming] - “ Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future” as mentioned by John F.Kennedy (1961), former president of the United States of America.
The levels of Carbon Dioxide (Co2) gas have risen to levels civilization has not seen before.- Without carbon dioxide plants cannot photosynthesize.Through reading various books and web pages it was made clear that carbon dioxide is definitely one of the raw materials needed for photosynthesis, but I wanted to see whether this is actually true and if carbon dioxide is taken away completely will the plant photosynthesize at all.Other sources are the deep seas, commingled with oil and gas deposits.Large amounts of CO2 are released from electricity generation and industrial processes.
