  • Hello, My name is Mrs.G Today we are going to talk about the Carbon Cycle !
  • The Carbon Cycle is the process in which carbon travels through the atmosphere into organisms and the earth and back to the atmosphere.
  • Lets take a closer look at what happens...
  • Mom did you know everytime you exhale you are releasing Carbon into the atmosphere.
  • Well did you know plants and animals need to get rid of carbon through a process called respiration
  • Carbon moves from living things to the atmosphere,it also moves from fossil fuels to the atmosphere when fuels are burned.
  • You may be wondering how Carbon leaves and enters
  • I can help with that..Carbon from the atmosphere dissolves in the surface waters of the ocean some gets stayed and some gets turned to different things
  • When organisms die, their dead cells sink to the water, decay releases carbon into the water
  • And for the last part of this explanation How is carbon related to global warming
  • Well the carbon cycle plays a role in regulating earth temperature and climate by controlling the amount of carbon in the atmosphere. and carbon is an important greenhouse gas, because it helps earth's atmosphere remain heat generated from the sun
  • And that all for today lesson Carbon Cycle Any Questions.
