ConceptBiogeochemical Cycles - The Carbon-cycle

Question

List any three human activities which would lead to an increase in the carbon dioxide content of air.

Solution 1

Three human activities which would lead to an increase in the C02 content of air are :-

(i) Respiration :- It is the natural process Of release Of C02 by both plants and animals. But this release is neither dangerous nor it has any adverse effect on our environment.

(ii) Combustion of fuels :- The various types of fuels are burnt to provide energy for various needs like heating, cooking, transportation and industrial fuels.

(iii) Deforestation :- Trees help in the conversion Of C02 into organic compounds such as glucose, starch, etc., by the process of photosynthesis. When these trees are cut non-judiciously, then the level of C02 increases in our environment.

Solution 2

(i) Burning of fuels in various processes like heating, cooking, transportation, and industry.

(ii) Human induced forest fires

(iii) The process of deforestation includes the cutting down of trees. This decreases the uptake of carbon dioxide for photosynthesis. Eventually, the content of carbon dioxide increases.
