BURNING FOSSIL FUELS By Joel J

WHAT IS THE ISSUE?  My issue is burning fossil fuels.  fossil fuels can be found in your energy at home.  when its burned and released into the air it turns into carbon dioxide.  Fossil fuels come from plants and trees.

HOW DOES THE ISSUE RELATE TO WEATHER?  By changing the proportion of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, the use of fossil fuels can change the way the heat is absorbed.  When fossil fuels are used, small amount of radioactive materials are also released into the atmosphere.

HOW DOES THE ISSUE RELATE TO CLIMATE CHANGE?  Burning the fossil fuels will produce some greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide.  The more carbon dioxide there is, the atmosphere can absorb more heat from solar radiation and earth surface radiation.  Carbon dioxide traps the heat from sunlight

WHAT IS THE EVIDENCE THAT THIS ISSUE EXISTS?  Within the last 30 years, burning fossil fuels has been the major reason for all the change in temperature in the atmosphere.  84% of fossil fuels are found in the energy around the U.S.

WHO OR WHAT DOES THE ISSUE AFFECT THE MOST?  90 % of the worlds electricity demand is generated from the use of fossil fuels.  Fossil fuels can form acid rains.

WHY SHOULD WE CARE ABOUT THIS ISSUE?  Oil and coals are known as fossil fuels.  Burning fossil fuel pollutes the air  Burning fossil fuels causes the earths climate to heat up.

WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT THIS ISSUE?  Decrease the amount of carbon dioxide that is being released into the air.  Reduce the amount of fossil fuels being burned.
