Here you can see Caroline the carbon hanging in the biosphere. Here she moves through the plants that absorb her from the soil and move through different animals. The bugs help her get back to the geosphere by breaking down dead things.
Here, Caroline the carbon goes back to a memory of when she was young, she used to live with dinosaurs! The dinosaurs may have passed but Caroline the carbon lived on as fossil fuels.
Caroline the Carbon start thinking, why am I so important? Well, she is the building blocks to life. All animals and plants need Caroline to live. The plants take the carbon from the soil to support more life while the soil acts like storage that keeps the carbon in a big pile, like the coal on the bottom.
