Sam’s Science Magazine

Monday, August 6th, 2012

Topics include global warming, animals and plants.

Highlights: “If there were no animals the balance of nature would be lopsided.”


“Plants do a process called photosynthesis. This process releases oxygen into the air so we can breathe, then we exhale carbon dioxide for the plants to breathe. That is our way of saying thank you to the plants.”
