  • Carbon moves from the atmosphere to plants. In the atmosphere, carbon is attached to oxygen in a gas called carbon dioxide.
  • Lastly, humans have been causing the carbon cycle to change. Humans have been able to dig for underground carbon stores known as fossil fuels (coal, oil, and natural gas) which they burn for energy.
  • Carbon atoms continually move through living organisms, the oceans, the atmosphere, and the crust of the planet.
  • nitrous
  • methane
  • Fluorinated
  • carbon dioxide
  • A greenhouse gas blocks the heat in the atmosphere from escaping.
  • As temperature rises, carbon dioxide increases as well.
  • The leading cause of global warming is a human-driven increase of the "greenhouse effect."
