  1. Carbon Dioxide Sources: www.epa.gov www.climatechoices.org.uk/pages/activities0.htm#p2 http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/01395/Carbon-dioxide_1395149c.jpg

  2. What is carbon dioxide? • Chemical Formula: CO2 • Colorless and Odorless Gas • Is created in nature and by humans • Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere causes global warming http://images.sciencedaily.com/2008/01/080103135757-large.jpg

  3. Creation of CO2 • Natural processes: • Animal respiration • Ocean-atmosphere exchange • Volcanic eruptions • Removal processes: • Plants • Oceans http://co2.utah.edu/jpgs/carboncycle.jpg

  4. Human Factor • Electricity • Natural Gas • Transportation http://www.tablelamps.us/table-lamp-422.jpg * Please be aware that there is a difference between gasoline (which you use in the car) and natural gas (which you use on the stove). http://www.linusruzicka.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/b_02traffic.jpg http://www.efficientairconditioningtx.com/sites/107312/digital.jpg

  5. More Human Facts • When in balance, the total carbon dioxide emissions and removals from the entire carbon cycle are roughly equal. • Human activities since the Industrial Revolution in the 1700s has drastically increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere. http://www.picturexone.com/business/industry/novosibirsk-industry-pic.html

  6. Where does Carbon Dioxide come from? Courtesy of: ww.climatechoices.org.uk/present/Carbon_sources.ppt I’m not sure. Let’s look at these pictures to find out. Where does carbon dioxide come from? Last slide With British to American translation from: www.translatebritish.com

  7. Power stations burn coal, oil or gas to make electricity.This makes carbon dioxide. Click onto the places where the carbon dioxide comes from. Last slide Example 1 of 3

  8. Power stations burn coal, oil or gas to make electricity.This makes carbon dioxide. Click onto the places where the carbon dioxide comes from. These are just cooling towers. The clouds are steam. Last slide Try again Example 1 of 3

  9. Excellent. The carbon dioxide comes from the boilers at the bottom of the tall chimney. Power stations burn coal, oil or gas to make electricity.This makes carbon dioxide. Click onto the places where the carbon dioxide comes from. Last slide Next Example 1 of 3

  10. People are responsible for a lot of carbon dioxide. Where does it come from? Example 2 of 3 Last slide

  11. People are responsible for a lot of carbon dioxide. Where does it come from? Excellent. Cars, trucks, and buses run on gas or diesel. They all produce carbon dioxide. Can you find any other source of carbon dioxide? End Example 2 of 3

  12. Yes. Heating houses and using electricity produces carbon dioxide. People are responsible for a lot of carbon dioxide. Where does it come from? Can you find any other source of carbon dioxide? Last slide Example 2 of 3

  13. Yes. Heating houses and using electricity produces carbon dioxide. People are responsible for a lot of carbon dioxide. Where does it come from? Excellent. Cars, trucks, and buses run on gas or diesel. They all produce carbon dioxide. End Next Example 2 of 3

  14. Factories use energy for heating and electricity. This causes carbon dioxide. Where does it come from? Last slide Example 3 of 3

  15. Factories use energy for heating and electricity. This causes carbon dioxide. Where does it come from? That was too easy. Remember though,you can’t see the carbon dioxide. The white clouds you can see is steam. It is also made when oil or gas burns. It was a cold day. The steam condensed into the white clouds. Last slide Example 3 of 3

  16. Carbon dioxide comes from all these things. Think about the things you do that produce carbon dioxide. UK emissions, 2004. End presentation

  17. More on Carbon Dioxide Courtesy of: www.climatechoices.org.uk/present/Cars_carbon_dioxide.ppt Cars and trucks make carbon dioxide which is causing climate change. How do they make the carbon dioxide? With British to American translation from: www.translatebritish.com

  18. How do cars make carbon dioxide? Cars, trucks and buses need fuel to make them work. Where does gas and diesel come from?

  19. Making gas and diesel Gas is made from oil. Oil is made naturally when fossilized sea creatures become buried deep underground. Oil is called a ‘fossil fuel’. The oil rig brings the liquid oil to the surface and the tanker takes it to the refinery. Oil contains lots of carbon but it is not yet carbon dioxide.

  20. Making gas and diesel The oil refinery converts the oil into gas, diesel and other useful materials.

  21. Tankers deliver the gas and diesel

  22. Cars use the gas and diesel Cars and trucks have engines that burn gas or diesel. This gives the energy to move them along the road. When the gas and diesel burns, it is converted into carbon dioxide gas. The carbon dioxide escapes out of the exhaust pipe. Carbon contained in the oil is converted into carbon dioxide gas in the air. This adds to climate change.

  23. Take Home Message So burning the gas or diesel makes carbon dioxide. Think about ways to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide that is made by cars and trucks. End presentation

  25. How much CO2do you produce? • Tonight’s homework assignment: Find out how much energy you use in transportation, natural gas, and electricity. • Fill it out on the worksheet. • Tomorrow, we will learn how to convert your findings into your carbon dioxide emissions.
