CO2 Effects On The Galveston SP

Effects Of CO2 Emission On the Galveston Island State Park

The Fossil Fuel Factory is distributing a lot of CO2 towards the park and it's wildlife. In addition, it causes acid rain that harms the wildlife and the water where the Mallard duck lives. The Mallard also eats fish that are swimming in these chemically filled waters, causing major problems for their health. The CO2 in the air also causes respiratory problems for the ducks. Many scientists think this is the reason that the black duck population has been declining for 30 years.

The Cycle Being Affected Is The Carbon Cycle

This is affecting the Carbon Cycle and the circle of life. The acid rain is contaminating the fish, and when the ducks eat the fish they get sick. Also, the other animals that eat the ducks can get sick too. We eat duck all the time and we can't tell the difference. We could be putting harmful chemicals into our bodies. Also, the carbon in the cycle is becoming unbalanced and that could hurt us.

What Activity Is Affecting The Cycle

The release of CO2 gas from the factory is affecting the Carbon Cycle and the circle of life. The acid rain is contaminating the fish, and when the ducks eat the fish they get sick. Also, the other animals that eat the ducks can get sick too. We eat duck all the time and we can't tell the difference. We could be putting harmful chemicals into our bodies. We need to stop this because soon the carbon will not only impact the ducks, but also the other animals living in that region. We have to come up with a more effective way to produce energy without hurting the environment.

How To Fix The Problem

We need to shut down this power plant or move it to an area where it will not impact the environment as much. One way is to use solar panels to produce energy or windmills. All factories that are affecting the environment must go green to help the survival of the animals in not only that region, but animals all over the world.
