How do humans add carbon dioxide to the atmosphere and how can they reduce it?

There is a natural cycle in which animals add carbon dioxide to the air and plants remove it, thus maintaining a stable concentration of carbon dioxide over a very long period of time. Humans are part of this natural cycle.

Since the start of the Industrial Age, humans have been adding additional carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, increasing the proportion by around 35 per cent, from 260-280 parts per million (ppm) to the present 380 ppm. We do this by burning fossil fuels, manufacturing cement and by deforestation.

We can reduce our impact on carbon dioxide concentrations by reducing and eventually eliminating our consumption of coal, oil and natural gas, by finding alternative processes for cement manufacture, including the capture and sequestration of gas produced, and by ceasing deforestation - even allowing some forests to return.

What are the Project topics in Environmental Education?

A TOPIC WHICH ALWAYS WORKS!

I suggest you to take up a topic of global warming . It works on all kinds of teachers. As it is a recent topic people will take interest in reading your project . For this matter your project must be precise about it. You must have pictures of the poles melting , the earth getting heated up (you can even show the earth crying in your drawing.)

What are the impact of industrialization on the society?

Obviously, there were new technologies such as the steam engine by James Watt. This allowed for the expansion of the railroad. One of the major impacts of the railroad was access to new terrains. This led to imperialism, allowing Europeans to colonize interior Africa. Another impact was the creation of Unions because of the abuse of workers (little pay, backbreaking work, that kind of thing). Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels wrote the Communist Manifesto, this didn't really influence anyone at the time but did influence people like Lenin and Mao. Really, this is all just a compact answer, the number of impacts are immense.

What is the difference between Afforestation and Reforestation?

Afforestation refers to the planting of trees on areas that were not covered with forests.

Reforestation refers to the re-planting of trees on areas that were once covered with forests.

Forestation is sometimes used instead of Afforestation, and Deforestation is also used, meaning to remove or cut down forests or trees.

(In Latin De means to take away from, Ad or Af means to add to, and Re means again.)

What is the need and importance of afforestation?

Definition of afforestation:

Afforestation is the process of establishing a forest on land where there is no forest, by planting trees or sowing their seeds and caring continually until the trees grow collectively as a whole into a forest as planned.

Need and importance of afforestation:

Afforestation helps in addressing the environmental issues of the world, esp. in preventing further global warming and reversing the effects of global warming. It also helps in avoiding desertification.

As the human needs grew by the population growth and advances in civilization people have been exploiting nature and converting forests into agricultural lands, mines, and industrial areas for various resources for their recreation, enjoyment and comfort in living.

As the global environmental issues due toindustrialization are growing more seriously, there isan urgent need for the mankind to resolve them by protecting the environment by way of afforestation.

The afforestation in and around an industrial region serves in aesthetically enhancing the foreground and background landscape features while contributing to the overall improvement of the environment.

Forests have many important and varied functions, and to have a broad idea some of them are listed below:

  • Forests are the renewable resources of nature.
  • They are giant sinks of carbon: they absorb and assimilate carbon dioxide, which accounts for the majority of the greenhouse gases that are now accelerating global warming.
  • They are home to living creatures,
  • They contribute in maintaining biodiversity
  • They regulate the climate
  • They provide industrial timber and fuel,
  • They prevent and mitigate sudden freshets that lead to flooding

Forests are fundamentally essential in

  • preservation of natural lands against soil run-off and erosion resulting in retention of fertility of the soil
  • conservation of water resources,
  • creating a healthy atmosphere for health of humans and other beings,
  • evolution of culture and civilization
  • providing research opportunities in education and learning

When we compare forest with non-forest areas within a single region, we find that forest areas are generally higher in humidity and milder in temperature. Water released from forest areas enters the sea and nurtures a wide variety of life forms naturally.

Afforestation is a proven method which contributes to environmental conservation, less-polluted industrial development and healthy community activation.

The spitting cobra is found in the southern forests of Asia and Africa. Additional Info: The discovery of the Brown Spitting Cobra as it's own species, brings the number of Africian spitting Cobras to six. The Brown Spitting Cobra is not considered endangered at present, but most experts are agreed that due to man's ever increasing demand for land, the species needs to be studied and watched for signs of population decline. The Brown Spitting Cobras are found along the Kenyan Coast.
