    The final screen in Lesson 9 Lesson Presentation introduces the notion of a systemic interconnection between greenhouse gasses, ozone depletion, and acid deposition. The lesson screen speaks of one common root source for each of these issues. That source, of course, is you (and me, and any of us who consume energy and materials goods).

    Placing yourself in the center as the starting point, diagram the systemic interactions between these three issues. Be sure to include a view of your individual behaviors that influence these issues as well as some behaviors you might choose or actions you might take that would have a reducing impact

    Greenhouse gases (GHGs) are gaseous components of the atmosphere that contribute to the greenhouse effect. Some greenhouse gases occur naturally in the atmosphere, while others result from human activities. Naturally occurring greenhouse gases include water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone. Certain human activities, however, add to the levels of most of these naturally occurring gases. Some of the main greenhouse gases due to anthropogenic activities are :

    1. CO2 due to burning of the fossil fuels
    2. Livestock and paddy rice farming, land use and wetland changes, pipeline losses, and covered vented ...
