The Carbon Cycle

Helping Others Learn About The Carbon Cycle and Renewable Energy

Today I helped at a festival at the Carmel library in Carmel. IN for the Carmel Green Initiative.

At the booth, kids were a carbon molecule that went to different areas (atmosphere, plant/animal, soil, fossil fuels, marine life, surface ocean, deep ocean, ocean sediment).

My job was to help younger kids through the areas.

At the end I showed them how burning fossil fuels released carbon dioxide into the air and collected the sun’s heat and energy.

As a result, it warmed up the earth, killed plants, and melted glaciers. To prevent it, we could use solar energy or wind energy to help the Earth.

Many groups are advocating for renewable energy and Helping Ninjas salutes those organazations and individuals that are helping our planet!

Thank you Carmel Green Initiative for inviting us to learn about the carbon cycle and renewable energy and for allowing us to help others learn too! Thank you for helping our planet!

Solar United Neighbors Organization is helping to create awarness about solar energy and creating innovative ways to make it affortable to consumers.

Students can learn at about solar power through solar outreach programs!
