S6E6. Gather, evaluate, and communicate information about the uses and conservation of various natural resources and how they impact the Earth.

A. Ask questions to determine the differences between renewable/sustainable energy resources (examples: hydro, solar, wind, geothermal, tidal, biomass) and nonrenewable energy resources (examples: nuclear: uranium, fossil fuels: oil, coal, and natural gas), and how they are used in our everyday lives.

B. Design and evaluate solutions for sustaining the quality and supply of natural resources such as water, soil, and air.

C. Construct an argument evaluating contributions to the rise in global temperatures over the past century, whether it is natural or not or real. Tables, graphs, and maps of global and regional temperatures, and atmospheric levels of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane, should be used as sources of evidence. Earthviewer app on iPad has CO2 data.
