Transcript: What is Air Pollution? North America? Air Pollution Recycling has many direct benefits however, the indirect benefits of recycling, while often overlooked, are also significant. Indirect benefits of recycling can range from creating jobs and tax revenues to make communities stronger and more appealing to residents.The production, transport, and disposal of municipal solid waste leads to greenhouse gas emissions. More Facts!!! What environmental factors are affected by decreasing our pollution in North America? How do the pollution impact the Continent? Temperate forests are less complex than rain forests, generally being comprised of two layers - the trees and an understory of shrubs. Sunlight penetrates the tree foliage and reaches the ground allowing for the growth of an herbaceous and moss ground layer. Rain is generally spread out over the year and is quantity. to support plant growth. In some areas of the world, including Alaska's southeast coast, rain is so plentiful and plant growth lush that these temperate conifer and deciduous forest areas are referred to as temperate rain forests. By: Corian Marshall North American What can be done to reduce the source in North America? More Facts about Air Pollution According to a 2009 report, around "60% of Americans live in areas where air pollution has reached unhealthy levels that can make people ill. The pollutants released into the atmosphere cause local air pollution In some cases, air pollutants contribute to climate change, and greenhouse gases contribute to air pollution: Air pollutants such as ground-level ozone and soot (a portion of particulate matter) contribute directly to global warming, which is linked to climate change. Methane, one of the most important greenhouse gases, is a major cause of increased ground-level ozone. Air pollution occurs when the air contains gases, dust, fumes or odor in harmful amounts. That is, amounts which could be harmful to the health or comfort of humans and animals or which could cause damage to plants and materials. The substances that cause air pollution are called pollutants. Pollutants that are pumped into our atmosphere and directly pollute the air are called primary pollutants. Primary pollutant examples include carbon monoxide from car exhausts and sulfur dioxide from the combustion of coal. GHG emissions trap heat in the Earth’s atmosphere. The release of these gases occurs at every stage of a product’s life-cycle, thus contributing to climate change. However, certain measures can be taken to reduce the potentially negative effects on human health and the environment due to changes in the Earth’s atmosphere. Air pollution is the introduction of chemicals particulate matter,or biological materials that cause harm or discomfort to other humans or other living organisms or damages the natural environment into the atmosphere. Ever since the the beginning of the industrial Revolution in the United States, America has had much trouble with environment issues, Air Pollution in particular.

Transcript: The Winnebago Tribe By: Gavin Kendall World Creation Myth In the beginning Earthmaker was sitting in space. When he came to consciousness, nothing was there anywhere. He began to think of what he should do, and finally he began to cry and tears flowed from his eyes and fell below him. After a while he looked below him and saw something bright. The bright object below him represented his tears. As they fell they formed the present waters. When the tears flowed they became the seas as they are now. Earthmaker began to think again. He thought, "It is thus: If I wish anything it will become as I wish, just as my tears have become seas." Thus he thought. So he wished for light and it became light. Then he thought: "It is as I thought, the things that I have wished for have come into existence as I desired." Then again he thought and wished for the earth, and the earth cam into existence. Earthmaker looked at the earth and he liked it; but it was not quiet. It moved about as do the waters of the seas. Then he made the trees and he liked them but they did not make the earth quiet. Then he made some grass but it likewise did not cause the earth to become quiet. Then he made rocks and stones but still the earth was not quiet. It was however almost quiet. Then he made the four directions and the four winds. At the four corners of the earth he placed them as great and powerful people, to act as island weights. Yet still the earth was not quiet. Then he made four large beings and threw them down towards the earth, and they pierced through the earth with their heads eastward. They were snakes. Then the earth became very still and quiet. Then he looked at the earth and he liked it. Humans Then again he thought of how it was that things came into being just as he desired. Then for the first time he began to talk and he said, "As things are just as I wish them I shall make a being in my own likeness." So he took a piece of clay and made it like himself. Then he talked to what he had created but it did not answer. He looked at it and saw that it had no mind or thought. So he made a mind for it. Again he talked to it but it did not answer. So he looked at it again and saw that it had no tongue. Then he made it a tongue. Then he spoke to it but still it did not answer. He looked at it and saw that it had no soul. So he made it a soul. Then he talked to it again and it very nearly said something, but it could not make itself intelligible. So Earthmaker breathed into its mouth and then talked to it and it answered.
