The left overs left behind in the soil as irrigated water for  farming evaporates, which makes the soil water have a higher  osmotic content for the plants. A higher concentration of solutes  means there is a lower amount of water. Therefore, more water will  run/diffuse out of the plants cells...
I can only speculate but I wouldn't imagine global warming would  have had much of an impact on global shark populations to date.  Water takes a lot of energy to heat up and changes to global  oceanic temperatures are less noticable than atmospheric  temperatures. Sharks are cold-blooded so...
Farmers had drought conditions, land was over farmed. Almost daily  dust storms and heat.
Greenhouse gases, climate and temperature can all be affected byenergy conservation.
Supplies of food, places and sources we can get food from.
The Blackfoot tribe lived in northern Plains, particularly Montana,  Idaho, and Alberta in Canada. The environment* could be plentiful  and great for planting crops, or at times, droughts occurred.  Overall, the environment was good.

It is 72% of our atmosphere. However it also can cause ground level  ozone and smog. It also can be bad in water systems if there is an  excess. Without it though nothing could live. Plants need it to  survive.
Methane 16% -- Carbon Dioxide (Forestry and Industrial process) 76%  -- Nitrous Oxide 6% -- F-Gases 2%

As oceans continue to warm, polar caps will continue to melt. Some  estimates conclude that sea levels could rise up to 60 meters. Some  sea level rise is inevitable; different studies make different  predictions. I wrote a paper on this two years ago, and of the 19  studies I used as references...
Humans burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) release carbon dioxide, a powerful greenhouse gas. This is causing global warming. Any warming of the earth will lead to changes in climate. Scientists predict this will mean that storms, floods, droughts and other weather events will happen...
Modern homes are better sealed against the elements, and lack of air circulation from outdoors means that more air pollutants stay inside as they are generated.
There are millions of carbon compounds. Three simple ones are  methane, CH4, ethene, C2H2 and ethanol, C2H5OH. Remember the  numbers must be subscripts. Answers.com cannot provide  drawings.

Thermal pollution is usually associated with increases of water temperatures in a stream, lake, or ocean due to the discharge of heated water from industrial processes, such as the generation of electricity. Increases in ambient water temperature also occur in streams where shading vegetation along...
Wind like waves and sunlight are created by natural functions of the earth as a planet. They do not require time to form a fuel like coal and gas. As these functions are "naturally occurring" they are considered to be renewable. They will, as far as we are currently concern always going to occur....

It depends upon the venting that is used, look for your vent pipes  on the roof and see if any are close to open windows. If you find a  particularly close vent pipe (and you home has several vent pipes)  you can add a "Studor Vent" to the top of the vent. A Studor vent  is the equivalent to a...
