You Are There
You are asked to help your community decide which natural resource it should use to produce its energy.
As a research scientist, you will want to have answers for the following questions:
• Who will benefit from the use of this energy source? Who will be harmed?
• What effect could using this source have on the community and its ecosystem?
• Where is each type of natural resource found? Which natural resources are readily available for your
community to use?
• When has the use of a natural resource caused issues for a community or ecosystem in the past?
Could this happen again?
• Why might a resource not be ideal for this community?
Gather information as you investigate natural resources.
Use your science notebook to track your investigation.
Remember, your task is to help real people.
An engaging
assignment

Renewable resources are natural resources that will be
replenished within a short period of time, such as wind, sunlight,
and water.
Based on the definitions, sort the scientists into those who believe humans
should use renewable resources instead of fossil fuels, and those who do not.
Nonrenewable resources, or fossil fuels, are natural resources
that will not be replaced within a lifetime, such as coal, oil, and
gas.
Students see
multiple
perspectives.
“We are close to the tipping point where global warming becomes irreversible. [Pulling out of
the Paris Climate Agreement] could push the Earth over the brink, to become like Venus, with a
temperature of two hundred and fifty degrees, and raining sulfuric acid.”

Renewable resources and nonrenewable resources both come from nature. People use natural resources in everything we do, from
building materials for our homes to the food we eat to the electricity used to power our electronics. Animals also use natural
resources to eat, drink, and as places to live. While natural resources are found all over the U.S., different resources are found in
different places in the country. Select a natural resource to learn more about where it is found and what it is use for.

Coal
Under the right conditions, when peat moss is exposed to higher temperatures and pressures it forms coal. Peat moss is formed when
dead plant matter in swamps was exposed to heat and pressure for millions of years as other layers formed on top of it. Because of
this, coal forms where swamps existed millions of years ago.
Humans are known to have burned coal for energy for the last 3000 years. Because of this, coal is the natural resource most
frequently used to generate electricity in the world, as well as the U.S.’s most abundant fossil fuel. But burning coal releases particles
into the atmosphere, which most scientists agree contributes to smog, acid rain, and rising ocean temperatures due to increased
carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. The process of coal mining can also be destructive to the environment, due to the removal
of plants, destruction of animal habitats, and contamination of nearby water.

Key Data: How Does Carbon Dioxide Affect The Environment?
When sunlight passes through the atmosphere and warms Earth’s surface, some
of this heat is radiated back toward space. But Earth’s atmosphere (which is
mostly made of nitrogen, oxygen, argon, water vapor, and carbon dioxide)
prevents this heat from escaping into space. This is what keeps the planet warm
enough to sustain life.
Scientists therefore believe that increases in carbon dioxide levels in the
atmosphere are leading to increased Earth temperatures, known as global
warming. Global warming, sea levels rising, extreme weather events, ice cap
loss, and other changes on Earth are collectively known as climate change.

Between 1790 and 2010, the population of
the U.S. increased by more than 7800%,
leading to an ever-increasing need for natural
resources. Since solar panels were not
created until 1954 and the first megawatt
wind turbine was not linked to a utility grid
until 1941, most of the energy for the
increasing population was provided by fossil
fuels.

Key Event
Review the event. Then decide how much impact the event had.
Highlight text evidence that supports your decision.
Deepwater Horizon was a drilling rig which BP was using to
drill for oil in the Gulf of Mexico’s continental shelf. In April
of 2010, natural gas caused a fracture in the rig, allowing gas
to reach the platform where it caught fire killing 11 workers
and injuring 17 more. When the rig sank two days later, oil
from the broken underwater well began leaking into the
water. The resulting oil spill became the largest marine oil
spill in history.
The oil leaked from the broken well at a rate of up to 60,000
barrels per day until it was officially sealed five months later.
Scientists estimated that of the approximately 4,900,000
barrels of oil (equivalent to about 312 Olympic swimming
pools) that had leaked into the Gulf, only 800,000 barrels
(about 51 Olympic swimming pools, or 16.3%) were
removed. Four thousand people were hired by BP to help
clean up the spill. Many methods were used to remove the
oil from the water, including skimming it off the surface,
soaking it up, spraying chemicals on it to break it up, and
setting it on fire. The cleanup efforts cost BP $14 billion
dollars, in addition to $20 billion dollars in fines to the U.S.
government, $14 billion dollars in Clean Water Act penalties,
and billions of dollars in lawsuits.

Which natural resources are readily available for your community to use? • When has the use of a natural resource caused issues for a community or ecosystem in the past? Could this happen again? • Why might a resource not be ideal for this community? Gather information as you investigate natural resources. Use your science notebook to track your investigation. Remember, your task is to help real people. An engaging assignment provides an authentic scenario that increases student participation.
  • 5. Natural Resources Next Exploring Science Log Out Notes Check Your Understanding Renewable resources are natural resources that will be replenished within a short period of time, such as wind, sunlight, and water. Based on the definitions, sort the scientists into those who believe humans should use renewable resources instead of fossil fuels, and those who do not. Nonrenewable resources, or fossil fuels, are natural resources that will not be replaced within a lifetime, such as coal, oil, and gas. Students see multiple perspectives. “We are close to the tipping point where global warming becomes irreversible. [Pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement] could push the Earth over the brink, to become like Venus, with a temperature of two hundred and fifty degrees, and raining sulfuric acid.” — Stephen Hawking, theoretical physicist Pro-renewable Pro-nonrenewable

People use natural resources in everything we do, from building materials for our homes to the food we eat to the electricity used to power our electronics. Animals also use natural resources to eat, drink, and as places to live. While natural resources are found all over the U.S., different resources are found in different places in the country. Select a natural resource to learn more about where it is found and what it is use for.
  • 8. Natural Resources Next Exploring Science Log Out Notes Check Your Understanding Coal Under the right conditions, when peat moss is exposed to higher temperatures and pressures it forms coal. Peat moss is formed when dead plant matter in swamps was exposed to heat and pressure for millions of years as other layers formed on top of it. Because of this, coal forms where swamps existed millions of years ago. Humans are known to have burned coal for energy for the last 3000 years. Because of this, coal is the natural resource most frequently used to generate electricity in the world, as well as the U.S.’s most abundant fossil fuel. But burning coal releases particles into the atmosphere, which most scientists agree contributes to smog, acid rain, and rising ocean temperatures due to increased carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. The process of coal mining can also be destructive to the environment, due to the removal of plants, destruction of animal habitats, and contamination of nearby water.

  • 12. Natural Resources Next Exploring Science Log Out Notes Key Data: How Does Carbon Dioxide Affect The Environment? When sunlight passes through the atmosphere and warms Earth’s surface, some of this heat is radiated back toward space. But Earth’s atmosphere (which is mostly made of nitrogen, oxygen, argon, water vapor, and carbon dioxide) prevents this heat from escaping into space. This is what keeps the planet warm enough to sustain life. Scientists therefore believe that increases in carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere are leading to increased Earth temperatures, known as global warming. Global warming, sea levels rising, extreme weather events, ice cap loss, and other changes on Earth are collectively known as climate change. Students use a close reading of text to evaluate the key data.
  • 13. Natural Resources Next Exploring Science Log Out Notes Key Data Look at the graphs and tables to learn more key data. Use the sliders to indicate whether you think the data provided corroborates the theory that climate change is at least partially due to human production of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the use of nonrenewable resources. Highlight the text evidence that supports your decision.

Between 1790 and 2010, the population of the U.S. increased by more than 7800%, leading to an ever-increasing need for natural resources. Since solar panels were not created until 1954 and the first megawatt wind turbine was not linked to a utility grid until 1941, most of the energy for the increasing population was provided by fossil fuels.

Deepwater Horizon was a drilling rig which BP was using to drill for oil in the Gulf of Mexico’s continental shelf. In April of 2010, natural gas caused a fracture in the rig, allowing gas to reach the platform where it caught fire killing 11 workers and injuring 17 more. When the rig sank two days later, oil from the broken underwater well began leaking into the water. The resulting oil spill became the largest marine oil spill in history. The oil leaked from the broken well at a rate of up to 60,000 barrels per day until it was officially sealed five months later. Scientists estimated that of the approximately 4,900,000 barrels of oil (equivalent to about 312 Olympic swimming pools) that had leaked into the Gulf, only 800,000 barrels (about 51 Olympic swimming pools, or 16.3%) were removed. Four thousand people were hired by BP to help clean up the spill. Many methods were used to remove the oil from the water, including skimming it off the surface, soaking it up, spraying chemicals on it to break it up, and setting it on fire. The cleanup efforts cost BP $14 billion dollars, in addition to $20 billion dollars in fines to the U.S. government, $14 billion dollars in Clean Water Act penalties, and billions of dollars in lawsuits.
