Natural Resources Find Fossils Paleontology
332 wordster> (a 9 th- 10 th grade essay) What Is Paleontology? Paleontology is he study of fossils, such as wood, bones, and shells. Those are the most common fossils, but there are also other types of things paleontologists search for. Such as soft tissues, tracks, and trails, and even coprolite's which are fossil feces. Even though the fossils these people dig up are billions of years old, there is no minimum age for a structure to be a fossil. These paleontologists study the fossils they fi...

433 wordsTidal electricity is a cheap way of producing electricity. Tidal electric's tidal generator combines hydroelectric power generation with the conventional maritime water-impoundment techniques and configures a system of delivering large amounts of electrical power. Potential sites are vast ocean areas with large tidal ranges. Tidal electricity is a clean method of producing electricity, unlike that of nuclear plants and fossil fuel plants, which gives off toxic smoke and producing acid rain. Ther...

Sulfur Dioxide Fossil Fuels
346 wordsThe outermost layer of the Earths living environment is the atmosphere, a mixture of gases surrounding the planet. The atmosphere contains a thin layer called ozone, which protects all life on Earth from harmful ultraviolet radiation from the Sun. For most of human history, people had very little effect on the atmosphere. For many thousands of years, humans routinely burned vegetation, causing some intermittent air pollution. In ancient times, the smelting of ores, such as copper ore, released m...

Alternative Energy Sources Forms Of Energy
1,014 wordsSolar energy is of the most resourceful sources of alternative energy. It is the most important of the non-conventional sources of energy, because it does not pollute the earth. "One of the reasons for this is that the total energy we receive each year from the sun is around 35, 000 times the total energy used by man. " (Alternative energy sources) Solar energy can be converted directly or indirectly into alternative forms of energy. People use solar energy for many things, but most of it is use...

Greenhouse Gases Carbon Emissions
708 wordsThe increase in greenhouse gases results from human related environmental pressures generated by growing population levels and greater consumer demands. As with so many environmental problems, the real challenge is to find effective ways to address these demands. Possible solutions to decreasing or avoiding the problems with the impending climate change will involve both immediate and long-term strategies. Immediate strategies to curb global warming are those, which act directly on the prices or...

Average Global Temperature Amount Of Carbon Dioxide
861 wordsWeather changes all the time. The average pattern of weather, called climate, usually stays pretty much the same for centuries if it is left to itself. However, the earth is not being left alone. People are taking actions that can change the earth and its climate in significant ways. Carbon dioxide is the main culprit. The single human activity that is most likely to have a large impact on the climate is the burning of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas. These fuels contain carbon. Burning t...

Genetic Drift Antibiotic Resistance
920 wordsEssay on Evolution There are many mechanisms that lead to evolutionary change. One of the most important mechanism in evolution is natural selection which is the differential success in the reproduction of different phenotypes resulting from the interaction of organisms with their environment. Natural selection occurs when a environment makes a individual adapt to that certain environment by variations that arise by mutation and genetic recombination. Also it favors certain traits in a individua...
