Avoiding Carbon Dioxide Emissions from Burning Fossil Fuels

Chemistry and earth science meet in a lesson on carbon dioxide emissions. After reading about atmospheric problems caused by using fossil fuels, science stars balance equations for the burning of different alkanes. They compute the number of moles of gasses emitted and consider the use of photovoltaics and other clean energy sources. Although it is only a paper and pencil assignment, it is well-written and pertinent when you want to open your chemists' eyes to the threat of climate change.

When plans are needed, and time is short, I begin here for help from my colleagues. The framework of lessons, excellent worksheets, and multimedia presentations has proved extremely helpful.
