How much oxygen does a person
consume in a day?
• The average adult at rest inhales and exhales
something like 7 or 8 liters (about one-fourth of a cubic
foot) of air per minute.
• That totals something like 11,000 liters of air (388 cubic
feet) in a day.
• The air that is inhaled is about 20-percent oxygen, and
the air that is exhaled is about 15-percent oxygen, so
about 5-percent of the volume of air is consumed in
each breath and converted to carbon dioxide.
• Therefore, a human being uses about 550 liters of pure
oxygen (19 cubic feet) per day.
• Kalau melihat fakta Oksigen yang diberikan Allah
kepada manusia, apakah patut kita tidak mensyukuri
• Oksigen adalah salah satu anugerah, bagaimana
dengan lainnya?
• Lihat surat Ar-Rahman dalam Al Quran, diulang
sebanyak 31 kali, “nikmat manakah yang kamu dustai”.
• “ Dan Allah mengeluarkan kamu dari perut ibumu
dalam keadaan tidak mengetahui sesuatupun, dan dia
memberi kamu pendengaran, penglihatan dan hati,
agar kamu bersyukur.” (Quran, An-Nahl, ayat 78)

• Greenhouse gases are those that can absorb and emit
infrared radiation[1], but not radiation in or near the
visible spectrum. In order, the most abundant
greenhouse gases in Earth's atmosphere are:
– water vapour (H2O)
– carbon dioxide (CO2)
– methane (CH4)
– nitrous oxide (N2O)
– ozone (O3)

The “Greenhouse Effect”

 The Earth’s surface thus receives energy

from two sources: the sun & the
– As a result the Earth’s surface is ~33C warmer than it would
be without an atmosphere

Greenhouse gases are transparent to

shortwave but absorb longwave radiation
– Thus the atmosphere stores energy
Greenhouse Gases
• The primary components of Earth’s atmosphere, N2 and O2 do
not have absorption in the IR wavelength range, therefore, do
not have a significant role in setting the surface temperature
of the planet…
• Greenhouse gas are efficient in absorbing IR light…
The most important greenhouse gases are:
– H2O – Water vapor.
– CO2 – Carbon Dioxide
– CH4 – methane
The most abundant greenhouse gas in Earth’s atmosphere is
water vapor. Most of the greenhouse heating of Earth’s
atmosphere is due to Water vapor absorption of IR
radiation emitted by Earth, and then transferring the
energy to the surrounding air molecule

Selected Greenhouse Gases
• Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
– Source: Fossil fuel burning, deforestation
 Anthropogenic increase: 30%

 Average atmospheric residence time: 500 years

 Methane (CH4)
– Source: Rice cultivation, cattle & sheep ranching, decay
from landfills, mining
 Anthropogenic increase: 145%

 Average atmospheric residence time: 7-10 years

 Nitrous oxide (N2O)

– Source: Industry and agriculture (fertilizers)
 Anthropogenic increase: 15%

 Average atmospheric residence time: 140-190 years

Summary (1)

Greenhouse gases absorb infrared radiation and prevent

it from escaping to space.

Carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide are very

at capturing energy at wavelengths that other
Greenhouse Effect & Global Warming

• The “greenhouse effect” & global

warming are not the same thing.
– Global warming refers to a rise in the temperature of the
surface of the earth

• An increase in the concentration of

greenhouse gases leads to an
increase in the the magnitude of the
greenhouse effect. (Called enhanced
greenhouse effect)
– This results in global warming
Radiation is not evenly distributed over the
Surface of the earth. The northern latitudes have an
energy deficit and the low latitude/ equator has an
excess. But the low latitudes don’t indefinitely get hotter
and the northern latitudes don’t get colder.


The atmosphere and ocean transfer energy from low

latitudes to high
Contrails and Climate
Contrails are artificial clouds made by the
exhaust of the aircraft engines, or the
wingtip vortices
. Contrails produced by the heavy air
traffic over the US may have
noticeable influences on the weather…
• Commercial air traffic were suspended
for three days after the Sept. 11, 2001
attack. This provided a rare chance for
the climate scientist to test their
• Measurements show that without
contrails the local difference of day
and night-time temperatures was
about 1 degree Celsius higher than
immediately before the attack…
Global Warming
There is a gradual increase in
the average temperature of the
Earth’s atmosphere in the last
100 years…It has risen about
1°C since 1900…
• Are human activities
causing global warming?
• What other (non-human)
factors can cause global
• How does global warming
affect our life?

Green technology
• Green technology is a popular term used to describe
technology developed to monitor, model and conserve
the natural environment and resources.
• These technologies can include:
– renewable energies,
– recycling technologies,
– water/air purification,
– environmental remediation,
– waste management, and even statistical forecasting
Types of Green Technology
• Air Purification – Technologies that remove carbon dioxide and other
harmful green house gases from the air, particularly indoors.
• Energy Conservation – Technologies that conserve energy in order to
reduce the amount of electricity used to power something.
• Environmental Remediation – Technologies that remove pollutants or
contaminants from water or soil, particularly after a spill or leak.
• eGain Forecasting – Technologies that predicts the weather’s impact
on a building to adjust the use of heat and conserve energy.
• Renewable Energy – Technologies that replenish energy without the
use of fossil fuels by using things like the sun, wind or geothermal
power sources.
• Waste Management – Technologies that purify water levels or dispose
and treat solid waste without negatively impacting the environment.
Green Technology Initiatives
• Green technology adoption has been largely
driven through government initiatives to
promote a cleaner environment.
• Solar subsidies are perhaps the most obvious
example of such initiatives designed to
promote green technology.
• Carbon trading schemes, such as the cap-and-
trade approach, also represent government-
led initiatives to promote green technology.

Hydrogen Fuel Cells

• Mike Strizki, an engineer at Renewable Energy International, Inc.
and Advanced Solar Products, Inc., built a pollution-free power
system for his home, using 56 solar panels and an electrolyzer to
pull hydrogen out of water, which he then stores in tanks on his
• The solar panels provide 160 percent of the electricity needs of the
home during the summer and 60 percent of such needs during the
winter. Seasonal power management builds a supply of hydrogen
during the summer for use during the winter. And, sufficient
hydrogen is available to power vehicles and household appliances,
including hydrogen cooking, throughout the year.
• He has more than enough energy to power his hot tub, swimming
pool, big-screen TV and hydrogen fuel cell cars. (Photo : Renewable

Green lighting
• One of the most widely available green lighting
products are compact fluorescent lightbulbs,
which can lower energy consumption, reduce
greenhouse gas emissions and help you save on
your electric bill. For outdoor lighting, consider
choosing LED solar lighting, such as those offered
by, which generate light
without the use of electrical power. Skylights are
also an eco-friendly way to introduce natural light
into your home.
