10 Human activities in the past 200 years have __________ the greenhouse effect.
A not altered
B strengthened
C had little change on
D weakened

11 As global temperatures rise, the small amount of warming caused by greenhouse gases may cause __________.

D trees are cut down and water vapor is released into the atmosphere

13 An inventor states that he has found a solution to the greenhouse effect. His hydrogen powered automobile produces water vapor instead of carbon dioxide as an emission. The inventor claims that widespread use of this technology will eventually reduce the greenhouse effect. Which of these statements is MOST accurate regarding the inventor’s claim?
A The inventor’s statement is accurate; reduced carbon dioxide will reduce the greenhouse effect.
B The inventor’s statement is inaccurate; the combustion of hydrogen will produce some carbon dioxide.

QFd: what layer of the atmosphere is the ozone layer in?
?FD: Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go, be what you want to be. Because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do. anon.

Objective: 8c. Students know the location of the ozone layer in the upper atmosphere, its role in absorbing ultraviolet radiation, and the way in which this layer varies both naturally and in response to human activities.
1) Read @ fossil Fuels (notes)
2) answer questions @ fossil fuels













Notes- Fuels are a substance that provides energy through heat , light, electricity, motion, food, water (hydroelectric) as a result of a chemical change in the substance.
Combustion : chemical energy which is released by burning gasoline, coal, natural gas which produces carbon dioxide and water vapor
Fossil fuels are energy rich substances formed from the remains of once living organisms – coal, oil, natural gas
Hydrocarbons – Hydrogen and carbon atoms combine and release energy CO2 and water vapor
Coal – solid fossil fuel that came from plants – 23% of energy in the U.S., coal produces air pollution, CO2, Black dust, lung disease,. Coal is the most plentiful energy source on earth.
Petroleum – Petra = rock oleum = oil – remains of small animals, algae, and protists. 33% of worlds energy is derived from gasoline
Refinery – Crude oil is converted into gasoline by refineries
letter
Natural Gas – mixture of methane and other gases
