3 What are renewable resources? They are resources that can be replaced at a rate about as fast as they are used up. Examples: oxygen, plants, soil and solar energy

4 Air - renewable resource (78% Nitrogen and 21% Oxygen)

5 Air Pollution: It occurs when some part of the environment is changed in a way that makes it unfit for humans, animals, and or plants.  Natural sources of air pollution: forest fires, dust from soil, and volcanic eruptions.



8 Photosynthesis: process where plants use light from the sun to convert carbon dioxide and water to sugars and oxygen.

9 Land and Soil 29% of earth’s surface is land but less than 25% of earth’s land can be used to grow crops. Soil Fertility: The ability of soil to grow plants.

10 There are 2 Problems that limit soil renewability: 1. Soil erosion: Breakdown of soil by wind and flowing water. 2. Soil depletion: when the soil loses its nutrients due to harvesting.

11 Water: Over 70% of earth’s surface is covered by water 97% of this water is found in the oceans which is too salty to drink or use for crops

15 There are two problems with water: 1. Quantity: amount of Rainfall is different all over the world. 2. Quality: Easily polluted
