Insulation helps conserve energy so the energy doesn't leak. you can be safe with electricity by making sure that when you plug something into an outlet, plug it in all the way so none of the metal is touchable.

The difference between 2010 and 1930 CO2 you get 811 CO2  how much CO2 do we use in 2010? in america we used 964 CO2. that is supper bad if we could go back to the 1930.  how much CO2 did we use in 1930's? in america we used 153 CO2. that is really good=http://=http://=http:// how could we help the CO2 in 2010 and even now drop ???????????? hears a question! what did we do to make the CO2 improve from 1930 to now???

Insulation helps use conserve energy, it does this by reducing temperature changes.Don't put things on top of an electrical power cord,electricity and water don't mix,don't stick anything metal inside any electrical aplliance,and etc. The fuels that put less carbon in our atmosphere are tree's.

We can conserve energy with better insulation because the warmth or cold would stay in the house! If you are going to touch or be around copper sulfate you should wear glasses and gloves. You need to be careful around uncontained electricity!Don't place stuff on top of electric cords.Don't put things by lamps. Don't fly a kite by power cords. Don't put forks in toasters.Don't pull a toy by the power cords.Don't use a hair dryer by water.Don't stick things into light sockets. Electric things don't put carbon into the air.

I learned that in the 1930's the average of Carbon Dioxide Emission was 153. In the 2010's we used 964 pounds of Carbon Dioxide Emission. That is a 811 difference. How does insulation help you conserve energy? It makes it so less heat goes into the room. So you don't have to waste as much energy turning down the thermometer. What are some things you learned about being safe with electricity? You should never put a fork in a toaster or near an outlet. Never put drag something by its cord and never put something heavy over a cord. Which fuels put less carbon into our atmosphere? Electrical things don't give out carbon dioxide into the air. Things that are engine powered give out carbon dioxide. Article posted April 11, 2012 at 08:16 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1128

We have a lot! Insilation Conserves insilition inside. It collects energy so its warmer inside. To be safe from energy you should stick things in outlets, have things plugged in when your not using them, dont put things on top of cords and have things near electrical wires. Trees give us less carbon then everything. Houses usemost carbon. Article posted April 11, 2012 at 08:13 PM GMT • comment (1) • Reads 1268

Even if your phone charger car charger(etc.) is plugged in but the other end isn't charging anything energy just runs out and you are wasting energy!!:( that's not good.

Insalation consevers energy by keeping heat inside of something so you don't have to heat up the house so much. Some things I learned about being safe with energy is that if you don't have it plugged in all the way it is much easier to catch fire. Fuels that put less carbon into our atmosphere is cars, houses, and trees are the best because they take carbon out of the air.

Insulation helps keep things warmer which helps preserve energy.Some of the safety things not to fly a kite near power poles. Also watch power outlets and cords and do not stick forksin power outlets.The fuels that put carbon in the air are cars houses and trees are the best because they take carbon out and that helps.

The pyramid game on the Atoms Family states that the more instillation you have, the more heat it traps. what are some things you learned about being safe with energy? don't fly a kite near telephone wires, do not stick something in a toaster or a socket, and dont put anything on cord, also do not leave a plug partially exposed which fuels put less carbon into our atmosphere?

Did you know, in 1930 our machines emmited or gave off ( for a small nieborhood) about 134 pounds of carbon dioxide. That may seem like a lot, but for the same size nieborhood in 2010 our machines emmited about 964 pounds of carbon dioxide!! now THATS a lot.

# ENERGY

#### Did you know:

insulation helps conserve energy by keeping out or in heat and cold so you dont have to use as much electricity heating or cooling buildings.

dangers to yourself (yes you!) from electricity

flying a kite near wires

putting objects near electircal plugins

using electricity near water

putting metal in electrical appliances

pull things by their powercord

putting burnable objects near lightbulbs or lamps

dont put anything in an electrical outlet

#### What fuels gives off more electricity

wood - 2.59/lb

coal - 2.48/lb

fuel oil - 26.4/lb

gasoline - 23.8/lb

LP gas - 12.1/lb

electricity from coal - 2.37/lb

electricity from oil - 2.14/lb

electricity from natural gas - 1.32/lb

We use energy for everything we do, from making a jump shot to baking cookies to sending astronauts into space. There are two different types of forms of energy Potential Energy - which is stored energy in something or another and Kinetic Energy -  Which is working energy or activly moving or being used energy. You can also classify energy as renewable energy, such as Wind energy or Sun energy, and there are non-renewable energy sources such as trees, coal, oil and others.

NEXT IS ELECTRICAL SAFETY! i learned that sticking a fork in the toaster is not really a very good idea and that bare wires can start fires.

We don't have enough trees to absorb the carbon dioxide that the houses emit. Insulation conserves energy by keeping heat/cold inside so you don't have to use a heater or AC. I learned to be safe with energy to keep the electrical sockets enclosed. I learned to stay away from electricity when you have water. Fuels like gasoline pollute the earth. But fuels like vegetable oil fuel don't pollute the earth. Article posted April 17, 2012 at 03:30 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1141

Back then We didn't have iPods or lots of cars like we do now. Q2.Insulation conserves energy because it holds in heat or cooling, so you don't use as much energy to heat or cool. Q3.Make sure outlets are plugged in all the way. Also don't put a fork in the toaster. especially this Toaster. Q4.Ummm.......I'm guessing natural fuels but I'm not really sure.

So maybe next time you turn on a light think about how much energy your using. To plug in a light or a lamp it takes up energy and we keep those on all day thats already a lot of energy and thats only one of the things we turn on in one day.

 Article posted April 12, 2012 at 03:34 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1193 I learned that in 1930s we used less energy then we do now. The average home in the 30s used 2 pounds of carbon dioxide,the average home now uses 92 pounds of cd. Each gallon of gas a car uses 172 pounds of cd in 2010,in 30s each gallon of gas the cars used 20 pounds of cd. In the 30s trees absorbed one ton over there lifetime it's the same for 2010. Insulation is used 2 conserve energy inside structures by reducing tempature changes. I learned that how you be safe with electricity, you can do many things wrong, like you can place a object on top of a electrical cord, cause doing that you can damage the cords.also I learned that if u dangle something over a lamp u can cause a fire,and dont pull things by a power cord, just dangerous.

To be safe with electricity you should always make sure your outlets are fully plugged-in, don't step on cords, etc. Some fuels that put less carbon in our atmosphere are fuels like coal, wood, and fuels like that.

They hardly used any energy at all . 2 - Well insulation can be heaters , air conditioning and all kinds of things but some heaters & Air conditioning have to be plugged in . But I'm pretty sure things that are plugged in take more energy . 3 - I learned to not put your fingers in sockets because I've done it and it hurts .

 Article posted April 17, 2012 at 03:06 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1140 I learned that in 2010 we used 811 more pounds of carbon than in the 1930s. That is so amazing. It is also scary. We have more cars and less trees than before. But now we have solor powered road lamps. So we have negative and positive affects on the amount of carbon released into the environment. Insulation helps conserve energy by using less enrgy to cool orwarm a room. I learned that to be safe with electriciy you need to be careful when you are using electrical appliances. You need to keep things that could dangle into lights out of the way. You need to make sure that only bread is put into toasters. That only electrical plugs are in electrical sockets. The fuels that put less carbon in our atmosphere are solar power, wind power, andd nuclear power. These kinds of power are unlimited and dont get used up. Other kinds of fuel like oil or coal aren't unlimited and can get used up. Article posted April 17, 2012 at 03:06 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1140
