a. .... : A substance contained in a spray can.


b. ... : Harmful rain, snow or other precipitation that
has become dirty and polluted. It is dangerous to the Earth with
chemicals due to pollution.
c. ... : the whole mass of air that surrounds the Earth
d. ... : A mixture of various decaying organic substances,
as dead leaves or manure, used for fertilizing soil.
e. ... : The branch of biology dealing with the relations
and interactions between organisms and their environment.
f. ..... : A colorless gas (CO2) that is produced when
people and animals breathe out or when certain fuels are burned and
that is used by plants for energy
g. ..... : The process by which the surface of the earth
is worn away by the action of water, glaciers, winds, waves, etc.
h. ..... : To prohibit (an action) or forbid the use of
(something), especially by official decree:
i. ..... : Animals and plants in danger of becoming extinct.
j. .... : An expert on environmental problems. A person
who works to protect the natural world from pollution and other
threats.
k. .... : gases rejected from an engine as waste
products.
l. ... : it refers to changes in weather patterns, e.g. a
rise in global temperatures; changes in rainfall patterns.
m. ... : The careful use of natural resources (such as
trees, oil, etc.) to prevent them from being lost or wasted.
n. ... : The surroundings and external conditions that
affects the growth and development of living things.
o. ... : A long period of abnormally low rainfall,
especially one that affects growing or living conditions.
p. ... : Location where garbage, garbage, rubbish or
waste is taken and disposed of without environmental controls.
q. ..... : the part of the earth's crust, waters, and
atmosphere that supports life.
r. ..... : Capable of being slowly destroyed and broken
down into very small parts by natural processes, bacteria, etc.
s. ..... : Your carbon footprint is the sum of all
emissions of greenhouse gases like CO2 (carbon dioxide), which were
induced by your activities in a given time frame and that have an effect
on climate.
t. .. : Diversity among and within plant and animal
species in an environment.
u. . : A shaking of a part of the earth's surface that
often causes great damage.
v. . : The transformation of arable or habitable land
to desert, as by a change in climate or destructive land use.
w. . : Pollution (including noise, heat, and radiation)
discharged into the atmosphere by residential, commercial, and
industrial facilities.
x. . : Destruction of forests to make land for
agricultures. It is considered as a cause of increased greenhouse effect.
1. Acid rain. Harmful rain, snow or other precipitation that has become dirty and polluted. It is dangerous to the Earth with
chemicals due to pollution.
2. Aerosol. A substance contained in a spray can.
3. Atmosphere: the whole mass of air that surrounds the Earth
4. Ban : To prohibit (an action) or forbid the use of (something), especially by official decree:
5. Biodegradable : capable of being slowly destroyed and broken down into very small parts by natural processes, bacteria,
etc.
6. Biodiversity : diversity among and within plant and animal species in an environment.
7. Biosphere : the part of the earth's crust, waters, and atmosphere that supports life.
8. Carbon dioxide: a colorless gas (CO2) that is produced when people and animals breathe out or when certain fuels are
burned and that is used by plants for energy
9. Carbon footprint : Your carbon footprint is the sum of all emissions of greenhouse gases like CO2 (carbon dioxide), which
were induced by your activities in a given time frame and that have an effect on climate.
10. Climate change : it refers to changes in weather patterns, e.g. a rise in global temperatures; changes in rainfall patterns.
11. Compost : a mixture of various decaying organic substances, as dead leaves or manure, used for fertilizing soil.
12. Conservation : the careful use of natural resources (such as trees, oil, etc.) to prevent them from being lost or wasted.
13. Deforestation : destruction of forests to make land for agricultures. It is considered as a cause of increased greenhouse
effect.
14. Desertification : The transformation of arable or habitable land to desert, as by a change in climate or destructive land
use.
15. Drought : A long period of abnormally low rainfall, especially one that affects growing or living conditions.
16. Dump : Location where garbage, garbage, rubbish or waste is taken and disposed of without environmental controls.
17. Earthquake : a shaking of a part of the earth's surface that often causes great damage
18. Ecology : the branch of biology dealing with the relations and interactions between organisms and their environment.
19. Emission : Pollution (including noise, heat, and radiation) discharged into the atmosphere by residential, commercial, and
industrial facilities.
20. Endangered species : Animals and plants in danger of becoming extinct.
21. Environment : The surroundings and external conditions that affects the growth and development of living things.
22. Environmentalist : an expert on environmental problems. A person who works to protect the natural world from pollution
and other threats
23. Erosion : The process by which the surface of the earth is worn away by the action of water, glaciers, winds, waves, etc.
24. Exhaust fumes : gases ejected from an engine as waste products.
