How can humans reduce the amount of carbon dioxide being put into the atmosphere?

Reducing the amount of carbon going to the environment is only part of the battle, we must also increase the amount of carbon dioxide presently in the atmosphere.
A out of the carbon (as carbon dioxide) is generated by fossil fuel , so task one is to reduce this use. The use of biofuels is not really the answer as we can burn biofuels quicker than they can be produced by plants. That leaves us with the options of colder homes, less air conditioning, streetlights, reducing shipping or flying in food from distant lands during the winter and prohibiting private car use. Or we could use sustainable sources like solar, wind and tidal energy to meet out need. Nuclear too is an option - no carbon emissions there.


It is often suggested that we end our carnivorous diet. The animals produced for the food use resources, create methane (GHG) and require shipping from farms to slaughter and to market. This is going to be unpopular as just not eating the existing animals does not stop the emissions. The change would require the slaughter and disposal of 19 billion chickens, 1.4 billion cattle, and 1 billion sheep and pigs.


Lower population is a potential answer but being told that everyone over the age of (fill in the blank) has to be put down, or controlling on a worldwide basis who gets to have kids. This is going to be unpopular.


We could also look where the carbon removal is going on:

  • forests are disappearing, they use carbon dioxide so we need to replant the trees and reduce the clear cut processes to create new agricultural land.
  • the warmer ocean is absorbing less carbon and killing off the marine growth to use it up. We need to work on all GHGs including methane from thawing permafrost and deep sea hydrates

SAVE THE WORLD SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT U'LL BE SAVED....................IF U WILL DO THIS THEN IT WILL NOT BE GOOD FOR ANY OTHER IT WILL BE GOOD FOR U

Save Trees, Save The World, Save Yourself.

Trees Are Life.

Forests Are The Green Lungs Of The Earth:please Save Them.

To have a good scenery, there should be little greenery!

Deforestation will leads to devastation.

Save the trees, The trees will save you.

Why do you celebrate Van Mahotsav?

We celebrate Van Mahotsav day so that we can spread the news to the people not to cut the trees because the trees are very essential for our life and nature.

What would happen if water resources disappear?

We would all die. It's as simple as that.
all living creatures will be affected.
That's natural. All of us will die due to dehydration. Not even a plant will live because it will also need water for its famous process called PHOTOSYNTHESIS.
it doesnt matter because the water has evaporated
If all the water disappears, there is no water for the plants so it will soon die. There is no food and water for the animals and humans, 2 days later everything die. O_O

Why you should not waste paper?

Paper is produced from wood pulp. Since this pulp ultimately comes from trees and we only have/can have so many trees, paper is a finite resource.

What is the difference between hard science and soft science?

Hard science is difficult to solve and needs more time to dedicate to it to solve, in the other hand soft science is easier and needs less time to dedicate to it.

Hard science uses mathematics to quantify the physical world, and to make predictions based on mathematics. Soft sciences rely almost exclusively on observations without much in the way of mathematics to back up their "facts."

How does drought affect plants and animals?

droughts affect animals because they would not be able to have much water which could lead to them dieing. Plants are affected because they will die and people will not have much food that grows.

Environment friendly industry.

Green Industry is producing environment friendly products or products which should

help improve nature conditions to better. And also during

working process cause minimal damage to environment.

Green industry ought recycling waste of working process

(cutting) and recycling waste energy (heat). Green industry

ought to reach wasteless working process.

The green industry is focused on eliminating or significantly

reducing dependence on oil, green house emissions, and toxins.

What is afforestation?

Afforestation is the process of establishing a forest on land that is not a forest, or has not been a forest for a long time by planting trees or their seeds. (It is different from reforestation which means planting trees again after they have been cut down.)

Afforestation is the process of planting trees in the environment.

The results are:

  • they absorb carbon dioxide and help cut down the danger of global warming
  • they help prevent erosion
  • the beautify the environment
  • they help prevent heavy storms

Afforestation is the opposite of deforestation.

  • Deforestation is the clearing of forest.
  • Afforestation is the planting of new forest areas.
  • Reforestation is the replanting of deforested areas.

Afforestation is the planting of a forest or stand of trees in an area where there was not any trees before.

What are some possible solutions to cheating?

My thought is that some people will always try to beat the system, because they like to solve that sort of problem. It isn't always due to lack of self confidence in what they know. So, in a testing situation, walking around through the class periodically (called proximity in classroom management), and having 2 or 3 different sets of tests so that no one is sitting next to someone who has the questions in the same order.

If you give a take home test, it should have the type of questions where it is necessary to analyze and synthesize the information in order to answer the question. If people come up with a word by word same answer, then you know. When teaching, my solution to that was to grade the paper once, and then divide the score between the number of students who turned it in.

The test should reflect the objectives you set up when you were planning the course and so nothing should be particularly a surprise to a student who has been attending to the learning experience.

The Difference Between
Afforestation

What is the difference between Deforestation and Afforestation?

Deforestation and Afforestation are opposite activities. Deforestation is the destruction of forests (by logging, by conversion to farm land, by desertification, or any other means) and afforestation is the planting of new trees in order to grow a new forest. Deforestation uses up the resources of forests, and afforestation renews those resources.

Forestation is sometimes used instead of Afforestation, and Reforestation is also used, meaning to plant trees again where there used to be growth.

In Latin De means to take away from, Ad or Af means to add to, and Re means again. See the related questions below.

How do trees reduce the amount of Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere?

Trees carry out process of respiration in which CO2 is utilized. That is, they absorb carbon dioxide from the air and store the carbon in their roots, trunks, branches and leaves. Fifty percent of a tree by weight is carbon. Thus, if the number of trees is increased, more CO2 will be consumed and the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will reduce.

A:Plants reduce the CO2, because they use it with photosynthesis. The CO2 level is going up, and chopping trees is one of its main reasons. An argument that making wooden furniture also stores the carbon is true, but much of the tree is destroyed to make a smaller piece of furniture. A:CO2 just enters through the stomata on the underside of their leaves. Remember concentration gradients. Gasses such as carbon dioxide travel down their concentration gradients; from high concentration to low concentration areas. The plant is fixing CO2 rapidly enough to maintain this concentration gradient. A:Trees breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen so if we have more trees the level of trees goes down the amount of carbon dioxide goes up. But if we have more trees they take the carbon dioxide and give us the oxygen.

Does carbon Dioxide effect the production of sugars?

Yes it does, based upon the principle called Equilibrium. As being a reagent in a chemical (and/or biochemical) reaction [anabolic or catabolic makes no difference], CO2's concentration will always produce an effect on the at-equilibrium concentrations of the products of the reaction, in this case sugars.

How can you promote afforestation?

  1. Educate children from the early age about earth nature and environment.
