Global warming: mythes and reality

Global warming, greenhouse effect, ozone holes, green technology. Everebody has heard these terms. But what do they really mean? Are we in danger and of what kind?

Presentation: Everyday Chemistry

The presentation I am going to deliver will shed light on a miscellany or items and processes accompanying our daily lives, ranging from air fresheners and disinfectants to nail polish and canned food. What causes the offensive smell of garbage? What do you fill your vehicle's fuel tank with? How does air conditioning work and how does it contribute to ozone depletion? What are the processes involved in making canned food? Although the scope of the subject and the time frame prevent my presentation from being a fully comprehensive and all-encompassing account, I hope to let you look at these quotidian matters from a chemist's vantage point.
