Title: Fossil Fuels: Capstone PDF
Url: http://esa21.kennesaw.edu/activities/fossilcapstone/fossilcapstone.pdf
Creator: Pratte, John
Publisher: Kennesaw State University
Description: This lesson summarizes our dependency upon fossil fuels, pointing out that there are very few aspects of our daily life that are not impacted by their use. The discussion centers around whether these fuels could be replaced and makes the point that there is a significant percentage of them which is used to manufacture products and is not simply burned for energy. The lesson includes an activity in which students use an online calculator to estimate how much of each fossil fuel they are responsible for consuming each year.
