Transcript of How does burning garbage affect the environment

photo credit Nasa / Goddard Space Flight Center / Reto Stöckli By :Elmira & Reg! This slide is going to include how burning garbage is bad for the environment by using four questions How does Mercury get into the food chain How does Mercury get into the food chain with burning garbage? Mercury get into the food chain through this small explanation. When someone burns garbage the harmful chemicals go into the air. The plants then begin to absorb the really harmful chemicals Scientific Terms Photosynthesis - A process used by plants by using the resources of water, the sun, carbon dioxide and certain salts to convert into food How burning garbage does
affect Nitrogen Oxides? Burning garbage affects nitrogen oxides that contributes to global warming (burned at a high temperature). Nitrogen Oxide can form with other pollutants to form toxic & chemicals by burning are garbage’s and it’ll affect the growth of plants and trees so will get less oxygen . These chemicals in particular go into the air and atmosphere. Scientific Terms Global warming-an increase in the earth's average atmospheric temperature that causes corresponding changes in climate and that may result from the greenhouse effect. Scientfic Fact How Does Burning Garbage Affect The Environment How burning garbage does affect Nitrogen Oxides? How does burning garbage affect the ozone layer They convert energy using of course photosynthesis. Now primary consumers come along to eat the plant and secondary consumers eat the primary consumer. Mercury - A highly toxic metallic element with an appearance of silverish and white Food chain- The description of how organisms interact and their feeding habits. Scientific Fact Ingesting high levels of mercury can also damage the brain, kidney , heart , immune system and lungs Mercury can get into fish because the earth's crust releases mercury into the environment By burning garbage we can also release Mercury which can get into the soil, air and water How burning garbage does affect
Carbon dioxide in are environment? How does burning garbage affect the ozone layer? Burning garbage affects the ozone layer when harmful chemicals called dioxide and furans are emitted through the air. These chemicals in particular go into the air, into the atmosphere and damage the ozone layer. They affect the ozone layer by eroding the layer. Scientific terms Ozone layer – a layer in a higher atmosphere where most of the ozone is concentrated Dioxins and Furans- A group of harmful chemicals that have the same structure Erode – To demolish or eat away at an object Scientific Fact When the ozone layer is lower in the atmosphere it can be very dangerous to our health The ozone layer + air pollution = modern day smog We need the ozone and without it harmful rays from the sun can give people cancer and also without the ozone layer we wouldnt have anything living on this earth How burning garbage does affect dioxins in are environment? Nitrogen Oxide-any of several oxides of nitrogen formed by the action of nitric acid on oxidizable materials that present in car exhausts. Oxygen-a colorless, odorless, gaseous element constituting about one-fifth of the volume of the atmosphere and present in a combined state in nature. the use of natural gas also offers a number of environmental benefits over other sources of energy, particularly other fossil fuels. these chemicals in the air go into air and atmosphere can also damage the brain, immune system, and lungs. The nitrogen oxides effects the environmental issue that deals with the potential for global climate change due to increased levels of atmospheric greenhouse gasses. Carbon Dioxide's Effects On Plants Increase Global Warming , Trees and other plants help keep the planet cool, but rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are turning down this global air conditioner. Scientific Terms Global Warming – by burning garbages are climate changes are temperature increases . Carbon dioxide- a colorless, odorless, incombustible gas, CO 2 , present in the atmosphere and formed during respiration, usually obtained from coal or natural gas by combustion, from carbohydrates by fermentation, by reaction of acid with limestone or other carbonates, or naturally from springs. Caldeira- the affects of dioxide in our environment due to the global warming the long term called caldeira. Scientific fact Carbon dioxide occurs in nature both free and in combination (e.g., in carbonates). It is part of the atmosphere, making up about 1% of the volume of dry air. Carbon dioxide Its greatest use as a chemical is in the production of carbonated beverages; it provides the sparkle in carbonated beverages such as soda water. We need Carbon dioxide because is a necessary by product of all chemical processes that could convert organic matter to usable energy. Without carbon dioxide, we could not digest and make use of food.
