Describe two impacts of fossil fuels on the environment?

Burning fossil fuels releases carbon dioxide, an important greenhouse gas, into the environment. This is contributing to global warming.Burning fossil fuels also releases other pollutants, like nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, volatile organic compounds and heavy metals.


What two processes return carbon from organisms to the nonliving environment?

combustion (burning of fossil fuels) and decomposition.


Why are the effects of burning fossil fuels greater now than they were two hundred years ago?

becaus the fossil fuels are better today cuz we have a lot more backup than they had back then


What are the principle causes of acid rain?

Pollutants caused from burning fossil fuels are a primary factor. The two main gasses that create acid rain are Sulphur Dioxide and Nitrogen Oxide, both of which are byproducts of burning fossil fuels in different forms.


What are two types of environmental problems that may arise because of the use of fossil fuels in your power station?

Burning fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) releases carbon dioxide (CO2) a greenhouse gas which is causing global warming.Burning fossil fuels also releases sulphur and nitrous dioxides, which cause acid rain.


What do fossil fuels uses?

Crude oil and coal are two examples of fossil fuels.


Which two fossil fuels were formed from the remains of marine organisms?

These fossil fuels are coal and methane.


What are the two main products of the combustion of methane and other fossil fuels?

Burning methane releases only carbon dioxide and water.


How do power stations cause global warming?

Power stations contribute to global warming if they use fossil fuels (coal, oil or natural gas) to generate their electricity. Burning fossil fuels is recognised as one of the two main causes of global warming (the other is deforestation). Burning fossil fuels releases carbon dioxide, a powerful greenhouse gas which is accumulating in the atmosphere and causing global warming.


What are two reasons people need alternative energy resources rather than continuing to use fossil fuels?

We will eventually run out of oil from fossil fuels because it is finite. Worldwide, scientists believe that there is only 500 years of fossil fuels left at the current population increase level. The second reason is that burning these fuels increase greenhouse gases that warm the planet.


Give two examples of where renewable energy resources could be used instead of fossil fuels?

Solar power could be used to generate electricity instead of burning coal or oil.Dammed water could be used to generate electricity (Hydro-electric power) instead of burning fossil fuels.


What are two chemical wastes produced by burning fossil fuels?

if the burn is fully complete well then the two chemical wastes are carbon dioxide and water vapor


What type of gas is made when burning fossil fuels?

The burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) in industry, transport and the generation of electricity releases carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide and nitrous oxide, among other gases. The first is causing global warming, the second two are causing acid rain.


What are two human activities by which carbon can enter the atmosphere as CO2 during the carbon cycle?

Driving vehicles that run on fossil fuel. Burning oil releases carbon dioxide.Using electricity. Most electricity is now generated by burning fossil fuels. This burning emits carbon dioxide.


What two fossil fuels are found in Mexico?

Tmi


How are placing limits on water usage the burning of fossil fuels and the cutting of trees the same?

They are not the same. Placing limits on water use is a localised regulation to make sure your town doesn't run out of water. The burning of fossil fuels and the cutting down of trees are the two factors that are causing global warming. A much more serious issue!


Where are the other two fossil fuels found in Mexico?

Oil, coal and natural gas are the three main fossil fuels found in Mexico.


What kind of acid is in acid rain?

There are two possible types of acid in acid rain. 1) The acid formed from Carbon Dioxide (from natural Carbon Dioxide in air, from man burning fossil fuels and from volcanic gasses); Carbonic Acid 2) The acid formed from Sulfur Dioxide (from man burning fossil fuels and from volcanic gasses); Sulfuric Acid.


What are two renewable energy sources and two fossil fuels?

Renewable energy sources:Wind power is a renewable energy source.Solar power is another.Fossil fuels: Coal is one of the fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas).Oil is another.


What fuel releases fewer pollutants then burning coal or oil?

Natural gas is the cleanest burning of the fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas). It emits less greenhouse gas than the other two.


Why do people need to develop alternative sources of renewable energy and become less dependent on fossil fuels?

Mainly two reasons. (1) The fossil fuels will eventually be used up. (2) Fossil fuels cause pollution.
