Transcript of Nature

What it is and what we should be doing
What is nature?
Nature is different for every one Let's look into some different aspects of it.
- All plants help the carbon cycle
-All plants take in carbon dioxide
- Then they all let out oxygen
_ All plants make the world a better place

The Sun
Parts of nature
Nature_ the flowers trees, and plants of the world
Nature- The animals; including humans on Earth.
Nature- Everything on Earth that isn't man-made.
Plants, Trees, and Flowers!
Other than giving carbon dioxide, trees also give sap. We humans use sap to make maple syrup. Humans also use trees for wood. Loggers log the trees and ship them off.
People also use trees as a source of rubber. Laytex actually.
There is a green way to log trees. And the trees actually grow back!
Some flowers are edible!
Like humans, animals breathe in Oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide that plants the take in.
The Solar System
The sun produces nuclear fusion which in turn creates light and energy.
Solar wind, flares, prominences and sun spots are storms that happen on the sun






The moon affects Earth's tides. Which gives us 4 tides a day with 2 high and 2 low. The time of tides changes 1 hour everyday. That's 15.2 days a year!
Alot of change.
Earth's atmosphere, crust and distance from the sun makes all life and nature possible.
Isn't that amazing!
Water makes up about 70% of Earth's crust.
All the water on the crust makes up the hydrosphere.
Water is made up of oxygen and hydrogen
66% oxygen and 33% hydrogen.
100, 000 forest fires happen every year in the U.S alone.
All these forest fires destroy between 4 and 5 million acres
80% of all forest fires, 80, 000 fires are started by people and then natures helps out the flames.
Forest fires also help out nature:
They help return nutrients to the soil
They also remove diseased bug and plants from the ecosystem
Now were gonna go into a world that doesn't have any Nature in it.
Keep in mind This is what Earth would be with out Nature.
Or at least what is the most likely explanation.
Well, let's go!
The Changes
None of the planets would have names
There wouldn't be any water or plants
There wouldn't be any animals
There wouldn't be alot of oxygen in the atmosphere
Global Warming and the green house effect wouldn't be happening
Humans wouldn't be here
with no one around to monitor and man the pumps, the New York City subways would flood.
the emergency fuel supply that fuels the generators that circulate cooling water to nuclear reactor cores would run out. The reactors would burn or melt within the first year, after which animals would begin returning to the reactor sites.
The facts from slide #26 what would happen to the Earth are from: http://www.motherearthnews.com/nature-and-environment/world-without-us-alan-weisman.aspx#axzz2UyTu4kSi
What would happen to the Earth
with no one around to continue the constant digging that keeps the Panama Canal open, it would naturally close, reuniting the Americas. Also the then water-logged steel columns that support New York’s East Side streets above the trains would corrode and buckle. Around the world, the common garden vegetables we’re used to eating would revert back to less-palatable wild varieties within this time frame.
the 500,000 elephants of today would have reproduced 20-fold, following the demise of the ivory trade. At this time, populations of small predators such as raccoons and foxes would be kept in check by highly successful feral housecats competing for food.
New York’s bridges would fall, and dams around the world would have silted, overflowed and toppled.
the soil would finally be cleansed of the lead deposited from decades of productive smokestacks.
or perhaps longer, carbon dioxide would return to pre-human levels.
Million Years
Billion Years
Million Years
Billion Years
remnants of Mt. Rushmore would still be around, while some of our other creations – PCBs and dioxin – would likely remain intact.
Bronze sculptures would still be recognizable
or more the Earth itself will burn when the sun dies
While the radio waves from our radio and television broadcasts would be fragmented, they would continue to travel outward into space indefinitely.
through 29
Some people eat vegetables and fruits.
Here are some other choices
Flowers, herbs, spices, and dried or seasoned nuts
can add a great addition or be the meal
You get to choose
Now, come with me to find out what you can do
sugared flowers
- sugar( as much as you think you need for the amount of flowers you have)
- an egg white
-edible flowers ( grown totally organically, no pesticide or herbices. so you don't get sick!
1. Wash the flowers well and let them dry on a paper towel.
2. Beat the egg whit and paint the flowers
3. Sprinkle sugar over the flowers
4. shake the excess sugar off the flowers
5. dry the flowers on a paper towel
6. Enjoy!
flower infusion
It's an easy way to get the flavors of flowers into anything. now you can make them invisible!
1 boil water and edible flowers in a bowl and allowing the mixture to steep for several hours. (The concentrated kind can be made by steaming edible flowers and/or petals in a double boiler over a small quantity of gently simmering water)
2. The petals steam, droop, then ultimately drip their essential oils (infused in droplets of condensed steam) into the bottom of the double boiler. ( It takes at least half a dozen batches of flours to get a well-concentrated infusion, which I should stress should not be boiled or reduced terribly much.)

Ten or so minutes of steaming per batch (or until the flowers are completely wilted) is enough
