We made a list of the sentences you had written about this from your own prior knowledge.
Then we ORGANISED some of them into PARAGRAPHS. Here are your PARAGRAPHS:



CONSEQUENCES OF INCREASING POPULATION

The population of the earth is increasing rapidly with the development of human technology and nowadays there are about 7 billion people on Earth. With this population increase more and more resources are needed. There is a limit to the amount of fossil fuels in the earth added to which there is not enough pure water for everyone now. This situation will only worsen. The lack of resources affects society a lot. For example the amount of fossil fuels is decreasing very quickly, Burning fossil fuels to generate electricity releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. A lot of the heat energy that comes from the sun is absorbed but the excess energy should be reflected back into space. However, greenhouse gases in the atmosphere prevent all this excess energy leaving. Developing countries are leading the growing population. Lack of resources can cause war.


HOMEWORK 22nd May 2015: you have to find EVIDENCE- in the form of STATISTICS to support some of the statements you made in the paragraph above.
Add your statistics to the paragraph AND use the REFERENCE menu bar in WORD to CITE YOUR SOURCES.

e.g.
The population of the earth is increasing rapidly with the development of human technology and nowadays there are about 7 billion people on Earth. This figure is expected to rise to 9 billion by the year 2050. (Feeding 9 Billion)With this population increase more and more resources are needed. There is a limit to the amount of fossil fuels in the earth added to which there is not enough pure water for everyone now. This situation will only worsen.

The population of the earth is increasing rapidly with the development of human technology and nowadays there are about 7 billion people on Earth. This figure is expected to rise to 9 billion by the year 2050. (Feeding 9 Billion) Global population growth amounts to around 75 million annually, or 1.1% per year. The global population has grown from 1 billion in 1800 to 7 billion in 2012. It is expected to keep rising, where estimates have put the global population at 8.4 billion by mid-2030, and 9.6 billion by mid-2050. (Source) With this population increase more and more resources are needed. There is a limit to the amount of fossil fuels in the earth added to which there is not enough pure water for everyone now. (BP's "Statistical Review of World Energy" published in mid 2014) says that the world has in reserves 892 billion tonnes of coal, 186 trillion cubic meters of natural gas, and 1688 billion barrels of crude oil. These numbers seems to be huge at a glance, but taking into account today's level of extraction proved reserves of coal will be exhausted in 113 years . The last cubic meter of natural gas will be extracted in 2069. And by 2067 there will be no reserves of crude oil. This situation will only worsen. The lack of resources affects society a lot. For example the amount of fossil fuels is decreasing very quickly, Burning fossil fuels to generate electricity releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. A lot of the heat energy that comes from the sun is absorbed but the excess energy should be reflected back into space. However, greenhouse gases in the atmosphere prevent all this excess energy leaving. Developing countries are leading the growing population. Lack of resources can cause war.

In 2013, the electricity sector was the largest source of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for about 31% of the U.S. total. Greenhouse gas emissions from electricity have increased by about 11% since 1990 as electricity demand has grown and fossil fuels have remained the dominant source for generation. http://www.epa.gov/climatechange/ghgemissions/sources/electricity.html

Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution (taken as the year 1750), the burning of fossil fuels and extensive clearing of native forests has contributed to a 40% increase in the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide, from 280 ppm in 1750 to 392.6 ppm in 2012

greenhouse gases = less than 0.1 % of the total atmosphere
