Green house gasses

This is a project I am working on for my science class. Me and two of my friends have done this I don’t take ownership.

Methane

There are many bad Greenhouse Gases such as Co2, Water Vapor, Ozone Chlorofluorocarbons but the worst of the bunch is Methane. Methane is 84 times worse than carbon and is mainly produced from cow burps but it is also emitted from the production and transportation of coal and petroleum industries. Methane accounts for 16% of greenhouse gasses in the last 20 years. methane stays in the because cows keep BURPING. 

Nitrous Oxides 

Nitrous Oxide is the most potent greenhouse gas. It has only accounted for 6% of greenhouse gasses though it is 264 times as potent as Co2. However, Nitrous Oxide can be used to treat pain. Nitrous Oxide is a colorless and odorless substance that’s also known as “laughing gas.” When inhaled, the gas slows down the body’s reaction time. This results in a calm, euphoric feeling. 

Reducing carbon footprint

How to reduce your carbon footprint. You can reduce your carbon footprint by not driving as much. You can do so by biking more and not driving short distances. You can also get an electric vehicle to not emit carbon from transportation. Even if you can’t get an electric vehicle you can use public transportation, use a rideshare company (hard to do during covid). Things you can do at home, you can turn off lights when you leave a room, and you can use energy-efficient lights. This helps because most places in the world use fossil fuels to get electricity.

Carbon Cycle

The carbon cycle is the process in which carbon atoms continually travel from the atmosphere to the Earth and then back into the atmosphere. With a lot of humans using cars, it is creating an imbalance in the cycle. More and more carbon is in the atmosphere instead of the hydrosphere, the ground, and the biosphere, which means more climate change. Also when humans are mining it can release carbon dioxide trapped carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
