    day two discussion
    Find out what the percentage of electricity that windmills produce in the USA versus what percentage they provide in Costa Rica? Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of wind power!

    The electricity produced by windmills by the US is 1-2%. The electricity produced by windmills by Costa Rica is 10-12% of the countries total electricity. The advantages of windmills is that they use wind for power which is a renewable resource unlike fossil fuels. The disadvantages of windmills is very slim since they use only wind and wont be able to produce power of windless days.

    Find out what the percentage of electricity that windmills produce in the USA versus what percentage they provide in Costa Rica? Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of wind power!

    U.S. is around 20% when Costa Rica is at 30%. a advantage is if a lot of wind is produced, a lot more of electricity is produced. A disadvantage is if no wind the country will loose a lot of electricity.

    A change in climate can be a serious problem for the plants in animals in the environment. Some species are specifically adapted to a certain environment and when the climate changes it can destroy the plant and animals habitat. For example, sone species of fish live in cold water only. When the climate changes and causes the water temperature to rise, that species of fish will die off.

    What are the consequences of changes in climate conditions in terms of the animals and plants in an ecosystem? Have you heard of any other examples such as the one above? As far as plants go in climate change they cant more up or move where the food is so they are going to have a much harder time than animals, they need to be able to get water and sun that's not that hard to get but in some cases when there are trees all around then they cant get much sun if any at all. If they are in a place in like Africa where it use to rain but the rain fall has decrease and has not turned to a desert then the plants are most likely going to die. Now animals are a lot luckier than plants because they can more and adapt to the climate they are living in in most cases. They cant however go from living in the rain forest where they get plentiful amounts of water then like before if the rain forest where to have a decrees in rain or a drout they cant live without water and they might not know where to look because it was always just there for them.

    Because of the climate changes and the ecosystems animals are losing their homes and habitat. different animals are added to the almost extinct list everyday.

    Ecotourism is tourism that is based on ecology. The zip lines are a form of ecotourism because it was based on the ecology but someone would need to know what exactly what you did to call it ecotourism. Sustainability is how to stay in a certain state. He is sacrificing land that he could be growing coffee on. I do not know something that I could do everyday to keep sustainability but I am sure there is something I could do

    What are the consequences of changes in climate conditions in terms of the animals and plants in an ecosystem? Have you heard of any other examples such as the one above?

    It can cause animals to move to different areas, which can cause competition between the local animals. Which sometimes ends in one of the animals dieing out. Or changes in climate can bring in new diseases. I have heard of these things happaning with other animals, but I do not remember which ones.
