Whats the Big Deal with Carbon? We think so because everything we put into the air, stays in the atmosphere. Notes map Locating Place Location information notes outlook pictures Hypothesis: We think people on earth could be damaging the earths atmosphere by the use technology and burning fossil fuels. Is there a dinosaur in my tank? Yes, because the gas we put in our cars has fossils in it! How does carbon get into living things? We breathe out Carbon Dioxide. Then the tree's take it in, and let go of Oxygen. What is a greenhouse? A greenhouse is made from glass that captures the heat to help plants grow. How is the earth like a greenhouse? The earth is like a greenhouse because the sun shines through the atmosphere and heats the earth to keep plants alive. How does climate change affect other species? The climate change affects other species by: warmer weather causing mosquito outbursts, hibernating animals, and tree's are becoming thirsty and stressed from droughts. How can a little temperature rise melt so much ice? A little temperature rising can cause more melting ice. Water stores heat from warmer temperatures, resulting in more ice melt. Without corresponding decreases in winter temperatures, this results in a net ice melt annually. Why is the ocean important? The ocean is important because, it soaks up A LOT of energy. It also soaks up CO2. How does the ocean soak up CO2? The ocean plants take in carbon dioxide, and let go of oxygen for the ocean animals. what can we do to help? We can reduce, reuse, and recycle to help. Other ways are planting fruits, vegetables, and tree's to help remove the carbon dioxide (CO2) gasses, from a greenhouse. Climate Time Machine In the United States the CO2 level was very high in 2009 and 2010. The sea has melted a lot since 1979. The sea level will affect Florida in the United States if the sea ice keeps melting. This is because Florida's land mass is so close to sea level. Planet Health Report If the sea level rises to about 6 meters=20 ft., every area in the Southern United States (all red area's on the map) would be underwater. In winter, the very top layer of the ocean by the North Pole becomes a solid. Most summers more and more ice melts. That is how the sea ice is "vanishing". Portland, Victoria, Australia Lat. 38.4 S
Lon. 141.6 E Population:
9,820 (2006) Portland, Victoria, Australia Years of Temperature Data:
1880-1958 This is a beach in Portland, Australia. It has plants, animals, and people living there. It might change because if the sea ice keeps melting it could be underwater. Location Graph The graph describes the surface temperature analysis for Portland, Australia from 1880 to 1958. Independent
Dependent Variables Dependent Variable: Independent Variable: The temperature The time Highs in the data: Lows in the data: 15.0,15.1,14.9,14.7 13.7,13.0,13.4,13.5,13.5,13.4,13.3,
13.3,13.2,13.1 This data may have occurred because of global warming. Modeling The Trend in the Data Carbon & Climate Applet The data has a lot of lows in it. End CO2: 778.97ppm(units) Temperatures: 5.5'F (units) Explaining the scenario of the role-play The temperature may change in Portland because of Global Warming Carbon Footprint Lauren: Kelli: Idea #1: Limit your time on electronics
