Hi! My name is John Smith and I work at Carbon And Co. Today I will be introducing our team and their roles in the cycle
John Smith (speaking): "This is Dean Decomposer"
Hi! My name is Dean Decomposer and I break down dead material from plants and other organisms and release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere."
"My job is very important because by doing my job, plants have access to photosynthesis"
John Smith (speaking):"This is Robin Respiration"
" Hi my name is Robin Respiration and my job is to break down organic sugars to produce energy"
"My job is very important because it releases CO2 into the atmosphere. Some organisms that undergo this are fungi, cows and chickens!"
John Smith (speaking):"This isFarrah Fossil Fuel"
"Hi! Fossil fuels are made from decomposing plants/ animals. These fuels are found in the Earth's crust, containing carbon and hydrogen, which can be burned for energy."
Farrah Fossil Fuel
"Burning these fuels releases carbon dioxide and methane into the atmosphere causing temperatures to rise."
John Smith (speaking):"This isPeter Photosynthesis"
"During my process, plants take in (CO2) and (H2O) from the air. Within the plant cell, the water is oxidized, while the carbon dioxidegains electrons. This transforms the water into oxygen and the carbon dioxide into glucose for the plants to gettheir food."
" Plants move carbon from the atmosphere to the biosphere during photosynthesis and the carbon cycle"
John Smith (speaking):"This isOlivia Ocean Acidification"
"Acidification is a reduction in the pH of the ocean over an extended period of time, caused mainly by uptake of CO2 from our atmosphere. This can cause materials that various sea creatures use to maketheir skeletons and shells."
