How Does Carbon Dioxide Affect Air's Rate of Temperature Change? [E]
Determine if different amounts of carbon dioxide in the air affect the amount of heat retained in the air. [E]
Determine if there is a difference in the amount of carbon dioxide in car exhaust emitted from the use of the 3 different gas grades to find which gas grade people should use to emit the least carbon dioxide possible as the problem of global warming becomes more severe. [E]
Does Carbon Dioxide Contribute to the Runaway Greenhouse Effect? [E]
Show which gases absorb the most amount of energy and show if global warming is possible. [E]
What amount of carbon dioxide affects temperature change in the atmosphere? [E] [P]
Determine if the absence of silicate or iron has a great restriction to diatoms (plankton) uptake of CO2 and thus hinder a viable solution to global warming. [E] [E]
