Transcript of Science Project- Thermal Pollution

Thermal Pollution What IS thermal Pollution? thermal pollution is hot water or waste
from places like factories that gets
dumped into bodies of water and can kill life that lives there :( Enviromental Impacts When the thermal pollution sits in a body of water, it evaporates the oxygen and the wildlife in the water is not able to breathe. temperatures of only 1 or 2 degrees celsius can make a change. ThE fUtUrE There is a power plant in california
that gradually lets off the pollution instead
of all at once, which decreases fish kills.
Also enviromental and chemical engineers work to remove the thermal pollution. this shows signs of people working towards getting rid of thermal pollution. Advantages:-) )-:disadvantages -There aren't many
advantages to thermal
pollution, but one
is that the
water around electricity
plants in
florida that release the
pollution is so warm that
manatees use it for
warmth and shelter. -The heat from the water
evaporates the oxygen. this kills marine life and brings down entire eco systems. It also makes the water just
plain unclean:( thermal pollution: history Over the past fifty years, there has been an increase in electricity use, increasing the
output of thermal pollution... Thermal Pollution and
The Economy:-0 When thermal pollution becomes too much, and starts affecting us, Someone has to pay to clean it up.
Also, thermal Pollution is good for the companies that create it because they don't have to pay to properly clean it up, they can just dump it. other interesting facts!!!! ways you can prevent thermal pollution are...
-waste less elctricity
-limit the amount of waste and hot water dumped into the ocean at a time. Bibliography http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_pollution http://www.rpi.edu/dept/chem-eng/Biotech-Environ/Environmental/THERMAL/tte1.htm http://www.eoearth.org/article/Thermal_pollution?topic=49471
