11: Within this model, what can you do to prevent contamination of the aquifer by leakage from the water storage tanks? You can prevent contamination of the aquifer by leakage from water storage tanks by not having water storage tanks. 12: Explain your answer. When the well is fractured with propane, there are no water storage tanks that can leak. 13: How certain are you about your claim based on your explanation? (4) 14: Explain what influenced your certainty rating. Using the model you can test to see if it will work and you can see that if the well was fractured, no leaks occur. 15: Is natural gas an abundant resource that will be around for a long time? yes 16: Explain your answer. The graph shows that natural gas has been produced in large quantities since the early 1940s. 17: How certain are you about your claim based on your explanation? (3) 18: Explain what influenced your certainty rating. It has decreased over the years somewhat but it keeps being produced in the future wells found.

3/24/2020 Response Summary for Evaluating natural gas 3/3 19: Earth is a system with many electricity-generating resources: sunlight, water, wind, fossil fuels, nuclear fuels, and biomass. How would using many different options for generating electricity be more beneficial to Earth than relying on only one type of resource for electricity generation? Relying on more than one is better for Earth than relying on a single option for electricity generation. Spreading out the risk over several different sources means that at least one source will be available any time 20: Based on what you've learned about the extraction of shale gas, discuss the costs and benefits of using shale gas for electricity generation. The benefits of using shale gas for electricity are: It is abundant and available close to areas with power plants and infrastructure to get the gas to power plants.The costs of using shale gas for electricity are: It takes a lot of water to hydraulically fracture a well.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
