Two ways people have increased carbon dioxide in the air?
Carbon dioxide can be added to the air by nature or by people and their activities. Three Natural ways: Forest fires and VolcanoesDecompositionAnimal/plant respiration Three …Man-made contributions: Burning fossil fuelsClearing forests by burningIndustrial processes

Cutting down trees does increase the amount of carbon dioxide in the air because trees take the carbon monoxide in the air and turn it into oxygen in a process called photosyn…thesis. Without as many trees then there is going to be more carbon dioxide in the air.
it contributes as co2 traps heat and makes the environment warmer.
The burning of fossil fuel (coal, oil and natural gas), as well as deforestation. Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere remained relatively constant in the range 260-280 …parts per million (ppm) over long periods before the Industrial Revolution, falling as low as 180 ppm during periods associated with the Ice Ages, but never rising above 280 pp. Since the Industrial Revolution, and particularly since about 1970. carbon dioxide levels have risen rapidly, to reach their current level of over 390 ppm. This is the result of human activity, mainly from burning fossil fuels (coal, oil, and natural gas) but also from deforestation and cement manufacture. Almost every reputable scientist ties the increase in man made (or generated) carbon dioxide to the increased retention of heat in the Earth's atmosphere which is causing accelerated climate change. A: Because factories are putting it out and cars and trucks are run on gasoline. A: The single largest factor for increasing atmospheric CO2 is the burning of fossil fuel. Human beings release 30 billion tons of CO2 into the atmosphere each year from fossil sources. Over the decades this has lead to an increase from 280 parts per million to now over 390 ppm of CO2.

What are three other ways that electricity can be produced that would not increase atmospheric carbon dioxide?
Solar power . Hydro power . Geothermal power
In 1860 the percentage of carbon dioxide in the air was 278 ppm (parts per million), which is 0.0278%. This had been the average figure for the previous 2000 years of the pre-…Industrial Age. In 1900 it was 295 ppm. In 1960 it was 315 ppm. In 1980 it was 335 ppm. In 1990 it was 350 ppm. In 2000 it was 369 ppm. In 2010 it was 388 ppm. In 2011 it was 392 ppm. (March 2011) This is an increase of 114 ppm, a 41% increase over the original 1860 amount.
When the cells of plants and animals break down food to produce energy and when fossil fuels (Such as coal and gasoline) are burned.
Rotting trees add carbon dioxide (and sometimes methane) to the atmosphere.Burning trees releases carbon dioxide to the atmosphere.

Forests store carbon, sequestering it from the atmosphere. Deforestation means the timber may be used and eventually converted to carbon dioxide, or left to rot, which also me…ans that it is converted to carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas responsible for global warming. Either way, deforestation contributes to increasing carbon dioxide levels and consequently the global warming process.
Riding a bicycle is carbon neutral, which means it has no carbon footprint. It does not increase the amount of carbon dioxide in the air. Many other human activities, partic…ularly sports and exercise are carbon neutral. But whenever you turn on some electrical gadget or ride in a fossil fueled vehicle you start increasing the carbon dioxide in the air.
Carbon dioxide is a dangerous greenhouse gas, so any increase of it in the atmosphere will lead to the earth warming. Just a few degrees would mean immense damage to our plane…t.
