I don't know when global warming has become a hot topic， but it's no doubt that Carbon emission is closely related to our life.
Global warming is the consequence of human behavior causing the earth's climate change“ "Carbon" is the natural resources composed of carbon elements such as oil, coal and wood“ Carbon consumption is much higher, and carbon dioxide, the culprit of global warming, is also much higher. With human activities, global warming is also changing (affecting) people's way of life, bringing more and more problems.
In 2002, a 3250 square kilometer ice shelf in Antarctica fell off and melted within 35 days; According to the latest data from NASA, Greenland melts an average of 221 cubic kilometers of ice sheet every year, twice as much as it did in 1996.
How much carbon dioxide do we contribute to the earth every day?
A large displacement car that travels 20000 kilometers in the city every year releases 2 tons of carbon dioxide. Every liter of fuel burned by the engine releases 2.5 kg of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
Each person releases about 1140 grams of carbon dioxide by breathing every day. However, as long as photosynthesis exists, the carbon dioxide consumed in food production is basically in balance with the carbon dioxide released through respiration.
The average indirect emission of carbon dioxide is 10.5 kg per year.
Halogen lamps for lighting
The average annual indirect carbon dioxide emission is 10.8 kg.
Heating in winter
Heating using kerosene as fuel emits 2400KG of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere a year. Carbon dioxide emissions from natural gas are 1900 kg, while electric heating is only 600 kg.
The average annual indirect carbon dioxide emission is 7.75 kg.
The average annual indirect carbon dioxide emission is 6.3kg.
One ton of mango or pear is transported by plane, with a mileage of 10000 km and a carbon dioxide emission of 3.2 tons.
Your food beef
Cattle are ruminants, which means their stomachs contain special bacteria that digest tough and fibrous materials. Digestion causes cows to emit methane. Methane is a kind of greenhouse gas, and its greenhouse gas effect is about 25 times that of carbon dioxide.
Beef production is a major cause of deforestation in many areas, resulting in 60% of the forest losses in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay, Indonesia, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea in 2011, while the removal of trees resulted in the release of CO2 into the atmosphere.
Cattle need a lot of forage, which means that farmers often use nitrogen fertilizer in the field to stimulate plant growth. The production of nitrogen fertilizer leads to the release of CO2 and strong greenhouse gas nitrous oxide (N2O).
How can people achieve carbon neutrality?
Increase the number of plants as much as you can. Plants absorb carbon dioxide during the day and release it at night. Therefore, the net carbon dioxide emission of plants is zero. A medium-sized plant can absorb about 6 kg of carbon dioxide a year.
