What is carbon and why is it important?

  1. 1. What is CARBON ? What does it have to do with MY FOOTPRINT???what does any of that have to do with GLOBAL WARMING???
  2. 2. SO WHAT DOES CARBON DIOXIDE HAVE TO DO WITH SAVING THE PLANET??? PH OTO SYNTH E S I S6CO2 + 6 H2O + energy -> C6H12O6 +6O2
  3. 3. Global Warming Video
  4. 4. Carbon is an ATOM… what is an ATOM? VIDEO: Democretus And the fundamental particleNO MATTER HOW YOU CUT IT,A PIECE OF CHEESE IS STILL A PIECE OF CHEESE
  5. 5. A BASIC SUBSTANCE that cannot be simplified is an ELEMENT FLAVORS OF ICECREAM An ATOM is the smallest unit of an element A SCOOP: SMALLEST AMOUNT OF ICE CREAM I CAN BUY A MOLECULE is two or more atoms chemically joined together A CONE: MORE THAN ONE SCOOP OF THE SAME KIND OF ICECREAM A molecule that contains more than one element is a COMPOUND A SUNDAE WITH DIFFERENT FLAVORS
  6. 6. SO HOW MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF ELEMENTS ARE THERE????
  7. 7. CARBON DIOXIDE MOLECULE
  8. 8. Before there were plants or animals on the Earth, carbondioxide levels were about 80 percent of the earthsatmosphere. But with the evolution of organisms that reduced theselevels, the Earth became a place that could sustain life.However now, studies have shown that due to humanindustrial activities have pushed carbon dioxide levelshigher than they have been in 650,000 years and likelymillions of years. Balancing Act Left to cope with the changing environment the Earth has responded by changing features of its biosphere, such as temperature, thus resulting in global warming. Plants are being destroyed and the industrial systems are steadily increasing. This in turn increases the amount of carbon emissions into the atmosphere
  9. 9. Fragile Balance BetweenCARBON DIOXIDE And OXYGEN
  10. 10. SO MANY THINGS GIVE OFF CARBON DIOXIDEINCLUDING: PEOPLE ANIMALS PLANTS (at night) DECAYING THINGSFOSSIL FUELS FACTORIES
