1. TONIGHT

2. Exam 2 Wednesday in class • Covers R and K Chapter 8, 9, 10 • And ‘not in the text’ • And IPCC Summary for Policy Makers • And carbon wedges • Material mostly since Exam 1, but the skills with units and balancing very simple reactions will be assumed.

3. Final course grade • Midterm 1=100 • Midterm 2 = 100 • Sum of HW=150 (including CAPA) • Final = 200. • Total = 550

4. TodayCarbon overview How much CO2 is being spewed? Changes? Atmospheric CO2 Where is the rest? Does carbon determine our destiny?

5. The logic • Burning fossil fuels, the accumulation of millions of years of solar energy, emits CO2, in large and increasing amounts. • This CO2 (with other modern gases) will change the heat balance of the planet. • The effects of this heat balance will be climate change, only partially predicable. • There may be feedback mechanisms that may accelerate and amplify these changes, leading to large uncertainties.

6. TO the earth Power/m2 ~ T4, T in deg Kelvin

7. FROM the earth ~T4

8. Carbon emissions (1.02)50 = 2.69, 3.2 Gt/yr * 2.69 = 8.6 Gt /yr

9. Reminder- Emitting 9 billion tons of carbon per year is the equivalent of 9 *44/12 =33 billion tons of CO2!!!!!

10. CO2 into the atmosphere and within the atmosphere? HW #6, problems 1 and 3 Your conclusion?

18. Or—do not fix the problem but repair it! Geoengineering—CCS, albedo.

19. Exam 2 • In class, 0900 – 0950 Wednesday. • Open book, but not other notes, calculator • Unit conversions provided • Probably returned Friday • Friday, backtrack in R and K to ‘renewable’ energy sources • Extra office hours– Monday– until ~4 -Tuesday - ~3:30-5 - Wednesday, only until ~11 • CAPA for April 7 in the boxes
