Little did they know... Their world was about to end...

Yes, but let me show you how we will be affected, lets review photosynthesis, and cellular respiration.
I feel that we are in grave danger.
Is it because of the volcano that just erupted in Iceland?!
Photosynthesis is the process that plants use to create food. The equation for photosynthesis is 6CO2 + 6H2O + Light Energy—> C6H12O6 + 6O2. When the plant creates glucose, then us animals eat it. This is called cellular respiration. Cellular respiration is the process animals and humans use to make to food.
The equation for cellular respiration is C6H12O6 + 6O2 → 6CO2 + 6H2O and ATP energy.
Now that you know all about photosynthesis and cellular respiration, let me show you how all this smoke will affect us.
When the sun gets covered up, then plants and animals will not be able to produce the food and oxygen that we need.You see, plants need the light energy that the sun supplies to do photosynthesis. Without light energy, the plant can not complete photosynthesis.
Therefore, we will not have oxygen. If humans and animals do not have oxygen we can not complete cellular respiration. Cellular respiration is when humans and animals do to create energy. So depending on how long the smoke stays covering the sun, we could possibly die.
