Hi
Betsy Spetich
01:26:36
To use put solar energy to use, we need panels (made from natural resources) or plants to absorb it.
Flavio Mendez, NSTA
01:27:24
Wow!
Katherine Deitrick
01:27:43
For sure, Betsy. To harness that energy into a resource for a consumer product (i.e. electricity, heat)
Flavio Mendez, NSTA
01:28:09
Cool - did not know that!
Heidi O'Donnell
01:28:45
Otzi!
Flavio Mendez, NSTA
01:28:51

Amanda Robin
01:34:17
Can we over mine theses materials?
yevgeny
01:34:41
It is more like limited resources
clarethompson
01:34:43
Just reflecting on the human power needed to get these materials… many lost their lives obtaining materials— thinking of the cultural impact…
Allyson Hunt
01:34:53
coming from Nevada, mining is a big deal here! I was curious about that as well
Katherine Deitrick
01:34:57
I was amazed too, Flavio. I may have missed the source, but where did that data come from?
Malcolm Pringle
01:35:08
Can (have?) we reduce(d) these amounts used significantly by recycling?
Lindsay Mangas
01:35:22
My environmental class plotted zinc resources vs. population growth, very interesting
Vasantha Rayman
01:35:24
To conserve, OPEC nations have a policy of 'controleed drilling' I guess
Vasantha Rayman

E. Sadıkoğlu
01:36:01
Peak oil refers to the hypothetical point at which global crude oil production will hit its maximum rate, after which production will start to decline.
Sally Meneely
01:36:07
I am reading a book about overuse of sand as a building resource
Wendy C
01:36:22
book title?
Orla Berry
01:36:23
whats the name of the book?
Malcolm Pringle
01:36:24
Actually we passed the original Hubbard peak, but we didn’t know about fracking and tertiary recovery originally?
Allison Liegler
01:36:26
Does mining have an impact (or will in the future) on necessary minerals in soils? (Meaning, those minerals won't be there to weather and erode back into the land, etc)
Kent Tartt
01:36:48
What about mining asteroids?

I teach in a oil parish in Louisiana, I always feel like I am stepping on toes when I teach my 5th graders about oil spills and human impact caused by oil.
Denise de La Corte Bacci
01:37:31
The use of mineral resources is directly linked to the capitalist model and our society view of exploration
Betsy Spetich
01:37:42
Or what happens when the mining destroys the environment. Short term gains because people need the funds to survive, but ultimately survival is limited because of environmental damage.
Sally Meneely
01:37:52
Sorry, The World in A Grain by Vince Beiser
Rhea Cabrera
01:37:56
Does mining will lessen the important components of the soil?
Rhea Cabrera
01:38:34
Mining is being used as a way of earning income of some people.
Christopher Mainhart
01:39:05
Yes, look at the hillsides of PA, WV, KY for all of the “boney” piles from coal extraction.
Allyson Hunt
01:39:11
mining is what drives Northern Nevada along with gambling
clarethompson
01:39:41
Our little town has become the mountain bike capital of the Midwest— due to trails built on the piles of tailings from the mining
Christopher Mainhart
01:42:42
A silver lining in the black cloud of our current pandemic…..less air pollution and clearer skies.
Betsy Spetich
01:43:54
Tragedy of the Commons is another reason we shouldn't allow oil extraction from federal public land. Oil companies will benefit, but the rest of us will lose.
Allison Liegler
01:44:00
Yes, thank you for the Daily Do's!
E. Sadıkoğlu
01:44:14
Late in the curve (post-peak), production declines because of resource depletion.
Katrina Bryant
01:44:25
Conservation vs Preservation
Betsy Spetich
01:44:55
Yes Katrina
jcarrick
01:45:00
Scientists have cited that although the lesser air pollution is a positive and clearly illustrates our impact, if we do not emerge from this with stronger air-pollution and climate change policies, the clearer air will be but a blip.

Can you post the link for freakononmics from the slide?
E. Sadıkoğlu
01:48:18
Earth-observing satellites have detected a significant decrease in the concentration of a common air pollutant, nitrogen dioxide, which enters the atmosphere through emissions from cars, trucks, buses, and power plants. The drop, observed in China and Europe, coincided w/ stringent social-distancing measures on the ground.
Taffeta Elliott
01:48:21
The views are connected in that the "ecosystem services" provided by the habitat have to be estimated in value even to evaluate the Development view of maximum benefit.

Betsy Spetich
01:51:11
This is not a new problem. However, population (the vast number of people on earth now) makes it a bigger problem. Has broader impact on the earth as a whole.
Kent Tartt
01:51:20
Biblical refrence to the book of Ephesians
clarethompson
01:51:48
Not just population but technological progress
Heidi O'Donnell
01:51:56
My husband’s from Turkey - sitting right here. :) We went to Ephesus and I had SO many questions because it kept referring to it as a port but now it’s like 10-20 miles inland.

Tillamook Bay, Tillamook, Or. used to be a major ocean barge port prior to WWII. Due to intensive clear cut logging and devastating forest fires the bay has now silted in so it is no longer navigable to any commercial vessels other than small fishing boats. All within the last 80 years.
Don Boonstra
01:57:16
Emine is in Turkey.
Christopher Mainhart
01:57:57
Roy, that is intense.

Back home in Eugene, OR the Willamette River had sand beaches near the university just 50+ years ago. Now, however, due to gravel and sand mining, there are no beaches whatsoever, and from above you can see the scoop marks in the bed of the river!
Heidi O'Donnell
01:58:13
We see google earth
Lindsay Mangas
01:58:22
Yes
Paula Goins
01:59:41
cool!
E. Sadıkoğlu
01:59:47
The city was destroyed by the Goths in 263, and although rebuilt, the city's importance as a commercial centre declined as the harbour was slowly silted up by the Küçükmenderes River. It was partially destroyed by an earthquake in AD 614. The ruins of Ephesus are a favourite international and local tourist attraction.
Vasantha Rayman
02:00:11
Ooh, you are so right about NoVa!
Allison Liegler
02:00:28
This is a great, especially to show students, and give them some sort of visual concept
Wendy BInder

Tyler
02:00:53
to the credit of "Gold Rush's"" Shawn Ryan: I actually give a lot of credit to my gold discoveries based on the mushroom picking. Because I was able to understand, scientifically, the parameters of why these mushrooms grow up here. And roughly how many are going to come out of each different fire. These mushrooms come one year after a forest fire. And it only happens for a month. It's kind of like magic. They magically appear. And it's only in that period of time in history. And then they go dormant for the next 200 or 300 years, or until the next forest fire. This type of work also eludes to the importance behind ecosystem protection and careful extraction methods if and when the evidence is clear that not only will the ends justify the means in terms of a massive gold find, this stresses the attention towards practice and ecosystem protection.-- Not to back track but I felt this being a "fun fact" worth sharing.. it took a second to find it hence the late reference. but perhaps putting their claim to test
Flavio Mendez, NSTA
02:00:58
Agreed Alison!

In Beaver County, we recently have a HUGE a Shell cracker plant for fracking being built. I have done some research on the chemical repercussions to water resources, air quality, etc. What will be the potential ecological, geological, environmental repercussions of that project?

how do you deal with dangerous cliff faces (eg, basalt quarry where the basalt was carried away)?
Amanda Robin
02:07:04
Thats was BP is doing by drugeing the land up they need for their ships then using it to build back the wetlands destroy. But I feel like they are still hiding the ecosystems by dredging
