There should be a 1 page report at the end of each worksheet centered around the question given. The worksheets are very short. Please see attatchments below. You will need to use the links provided to complete these labs.
In this lab, you will gather data about CO2 emissions using the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Web site (Earth System Research Laboratory, n.d.) to help you write up a scientific report centered around known phenomena of CO2 emissions, related to the following question:
- Would you expect to see an increase or decrease in CO2 emissions in the data over the past 40 years? Why? Sources of CO2 Emissions Follow link https://class.aiuniv.edu/_layouts/MUSEViewer/MUSE.aspx?mid=MU17320
Please site your sources for your report in APA format as well. NO PLAGIARISM!
In this lab, you will see the time progression of impacts associated with either coal-fired or nuclear power plants for electricity generation to help you write up a scientific paper that centers on the following:
- Given that the current 2 primary sources of electricity generation are coal and nuclear power plants, which of these sources is better for human sustainability?
Analyze Energy Sources Lab
Everything people do in their daily lives involves the consumption of resources—particularly energy. With respect to energy, electricity is one of the most important resources consumed and also one of the highest in demand. Traditionally, fossil fuels such as coal, natural gas, and oil have dominated the U.S. energy mix; however, as it is well-known, carbon-emitting energy sources are very detrimental to the environment and are contributing to global warming. Fortunately, alternative energy resources such as solar, wind, hydro, and geothermal power are becoming more efficient and prevalent in today’s energy economy.
