Transcript of Prezi 6.0 Perspectives on Sustainability

Environment and Energy Map
Feedback and Amplification
Methane Release
(20 times more potent that carbon)
CO2 release
Lack of Oxygen production
Loss of Biodiversity
Ice melt,
water reduction
Melting Ice caps
reduces reflection of light
increasing absorption of
heat

Coal Burning
emits Co2

Glacier Snow Pack Melt
- Decrease in water for rivers
- Decrease in Food production
- Migration and starvation
+ Feedback loop
from warming planet
Rising Seas = Mass Migration
Public Perception of Global Warming
- Ecosystem Destruction
- Co2 emissions - deforestation
- Threats to local tribes

FOREST FIRES
According to a new study by the scientific journal Nature, 2047. That's the year the planet will pass "climate departure," the moment when the average coolest temperature year is projected to be warmer than the average temperature of its hottest year between 1960 and 2005.
PM 2.5
Record Drought
in California - also add in groundwater for Colorado river basin
Belo Monte Dam
China
Bio-Diversity Imbalances
37c + 2c = 39c = illness?

98.6f + 3.6f = 102.2f = illness?

Subjective
Objective
Amplification = Positive Feedback loops = increased effect
Long Term System Effects= what happens over time
Fracking
500,000 Active gas wells in US = 72 Trillion Gallons of Water + 360 Billion Gallons of Chemicals needed to run the current gas wells
Only 30-50% of the fracturing fluid is recovered and is not biodegradable.

Approx. 300,000 barrels of natural gas a day
Each well requires approx 400 tanker trucks for water & supplies

40,000 gallons of chemicals are used per fracturing

Mixture contains: Radium, Methanol, Hydrochloric Acid, Formaldehyde, Lead, Uranium, Mercury, Ethylene Glycol

Fracking
Learning Objectives
- Think across scales
- Examine the relationship between human behaviors and negative environmental impacts
- Recognize the complex interrelationships via feedback loops and amplification in natural human made systems.
- Value nature through engended relationships
