Environmental Effects of Increased Atmospheric

2019-3-15  About 0.6 Gt C of CO2 is produced annually by human respiration and often leads to concentrations exceeding 1,000 ppm in public buildings. Atmospheric CO2 has increased 22% since 1958 and about 30% since 1880. Carbon dioxide has a very short residence time in the atmosphere.

How the Internet of Things Affects the Environment

One of the most widely known environmental concerns is global warming, largely caused by excessive carbon dioxide emissions, which is “82% of US greenhouse emissions” even back in 2013 [1]. Smart energy grids connected to the Internet use smart meters that measure and help regulate the amount of CO2 that is produced.

Environmental Kuznets curve - Economics Help

Definition: The environmental Kuznets curve suggests that economic development initially leads to a deterioration in the environment, but after a certain level of economic growth, a society begins to improve its relationship with the environment and levels of environmental degradation reduces. From a very simplistic viewpoint, it can suggest that economic growth is good for the environment.
