Storyboard Text

  • However, CarBen's parents, seeing their son desperate for help, offer to take him back in, which warms him up inside. He is lifted up from his depression and brought back where he started. Combustion is when the fossil fuels are burned up, which releases CO2 back up into the air where it began originally.

  • Meanwhile, CarBen's friend, Alyssa, who is also a carbon molecule and lives far away, has a break down because of her work. She decides to move to another area, taking with her all of her belongings. During erosion, materials break down and solid materials are transported elsewhere.
  • C
  • After settling down, Alyssa becomes an integral part of the community, and she fits in well. She remains there for several years. During compaction, CO2 dissolves in water and is compacted into sedimentary rock, where it stays as part of the ocean floor for up to millions of years.
  • C
  • Now both CarBen and Alyssa have gone through the entire carbon cycle. They've gone through photosynthesis, cellular respiration, decomposition, combustion, erosion, and burial/compaction.

  • Terms Photosynthesis - Plants using CO2 and light energy to produce glucose and O2. Cellular Respiration - Living organisms using O2 and food to produce CO2, water, and energy. Decomposition - Organic material breaks down, returning organic carbon into the soil. Combustion - Burning fossil fuels, returns CO2 to air. Erosion - Breaking down and transporting solid materials. Burial/Compaction - CO2 dissolves in water, compacted into limestone.
