In Newtok Alaska, the villages are built on frozen solid soil. With the climate changing the soil is thawing out and the ice is melting. Some villages have even begun to sink in into the ground. Now the villagers must relocate to higher ground and must rebuild on solid ground that won't be affected by the climate change. Humans are the main cause of global warming, but at the same time we are the only ones who can stop it. For centuries, atmospheric carbon dioxide has never been higher than it is now. It has been increasing since the industrial revolution. The Earth's climate has changed throughout history. Many have tried to come up with solutions to fix this controversial issue but climate change is still a major issue and affecting millions of lives. To stop this drastic effect we have on the world we must get together with other countries to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, drive more
During school, we 've always been taught a little about pollution, how to recycle and even practiced a few things that will help improve this issue. This has been an ongoing issue for years and it can make some feel like what 's the use of trying to make a change now. Don 't get me wrong, things have been done, but more could be done as well. I myself could make a few changes too. If we really researched the damage that these things are doing to our precious earth we would want to do more. People would be surprised at the number of cans and bottles we waste everyday. "Plastic water bottles, one after another ---- 80 million of them get tossed every day" stated Mckibben. Many businesses that support recycling now have separate bins with labels such as plastic, paper, or cans. Although these bins are available, we still find those who still throw those items in the trash. If people took reducing the amount of waste we produce as serious as they take shopping and games we would have definitely seen more improvement since this essay was written in 2009. It 's never too late to make a change. “We may have waited too long—we may have wasted on last good chance. It’s possible the planet will keep warming and the economy keep sinking no matter what. But perhaps not – and we seem ready to shoot for something noble their than the hyper-consumerism that’s wasted so much of the last few decades” stated Mckibben. It 's never too late to take care of our earth so that our
What we need to do is recycle more. We need to keep our world clean and not full of trash. Some people just think it is alright to throw their garbage out the window of their car and think that nothing will happen. Well, that 's not true! Animals that see it think of it as food and once they get into it they may get stuck or get cut on the thing that you threw out.
While glass is fully recyclable, plastic is not something we endlessly reuse. The triangle arrow that is on our plastic bottles is actually telling us the type of plastic it is made out of. There are a total of seven different plastics and only two of them, PET and HDPE, are recyclable. The author states, “only 3 to 5 percent of plastics are recycled in any way.” Products from jackets to carpeting is what more than half of our recycled plastic is used for. To recycle plastic one must use low temperatures. Since low temperatures are used residue is still left behind. If higher temperatures were used than toxins would be released. The truth is, plastic does not go away.
The first attempt and success to climb Mt. Everest occured in 1953. Since then, almost 4,000 people have been able to scale the mountain, but over 230 people have not been able to climb it successfully. There is a chance of accident or death when climbing this mountain or any dangerous activity. All people should should have the right to rescue services even if they knowingly put themselves at risk because there is always a chance of an accident happening, rangers are there to save people in danger, and there are rescue vehicles being produced to be used in case of an emergency.
St. labre high school and middle school would be affected by the change of an eight period day to a seven period day, it would allow the high school to have more learning time in class but one less elective, it would allow the middle school to either continue to eat lunch with the high school or have another thing to do with the extra time.
Over the past years littering has become quite a concern for our nation. Everywhere we look and especially during the rainy season, we see rubbish in the muddy water. This happens when we litter without concern. But have we thought about the damage we are doing to the environment?
Imagine living in a world where the air is polluted and most people are afraid to step outside their front door, in the near future, this may be reality for Americans. Americans throw out over 200 million tons of garbage a year, yet recycle not nearly as much. Most people do not realize it but recycling is a vital part of America’s society and if Americans do not perform this action, it will backfire on them. People in America are debating whether Americans are recycling enough and correctly. After analyzing the data, one will definitely agree that Americans need to be more educated on recycling due to the fact that most people do not know what happens after they recycle an item, nearly all Americans are recycling incorrectly, and Am
The amount of plastic products that ended up in the ocean as of 2015 are quite high. How high you may ask yourself? No not 1 million but 9 million tons of plastic waste laid in the ocean as of 2015. Who could be responsible for most of this plastic in the ocean? Surprisingly its china, they are responsible for 2.4 million tons per year. That 's 30 percent of the global total. The top countries most responsible for the plastic pollution issue are as following, China, The Philippines, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Egypt, Malaysia, Nigeria, and Bangladesh.What are we gonna do about it? Switch bag materials or don 't even provide bags just make the people bring their own bags and then they can continue to reuse them and then we won 't have the issue of plastic ending up in the ocean. Innocent animals we haven 't even discovered yet are dying because people can 't walk 10 feet to a trash can. If you could save your mothers life by walking a couple yards to the nearest trash can would you? Of course you would! Dumping plastics into our oceans is a huge problem for our environment and the people that live in it.
“Food waste is an atrocity that is reducible, if not completely avoidable.” -Stephen Hough a famous composer once said. Food is a precious item many people do not have access to. Yes, you may have a surplus amount of food, but one should think about how much of that food do you waste. That food could go to the poor, unassuming and haggard people in society. Food can be bought and wasted because of the ample amounts bought. Although, one may not give to the poor people of the world, food can be gone to compost, or can be used to make new food. Many belittle the fact that food waste is harmful to society. The first article, “U.S. throws away half of all food produce” By Suzanne Goldenberg explains how Fresh produce is often wasted in fields,warehouses,supermarkets,restaurants,and refrigerators. The second article, “How Norway is selling out-of-date food to help tackle waste” By Daniel Boffey shows A supermarket in Norway which is dedicated to selling expired and old food. The third article, “Ending world hunger by stopping food waste in the fields” By Bjorn Lomborg tell the reader about how one quarter of all
II. Statement of Significance: Recycling is critical currently if we need to leave this planet for our who and what is to come. It is useful for nature, since we are making new items from the old items which are of no utilization to us. Recycling starts at home. On the off chance that you are not discarding any of your old item and rather using it for something new, at that point you are recycling. When you consider reusing you should consider the entire thought; reduce, reuse and recycle. We 've been indiscreet so far with the way we 've treated the Earth and it 's an ideal opportunity to change; not only the way we get things done but rather the way we think.
Now we are talking about recycling. So, what actually does recycling means? Turning used materials that are labeled as recyclable over to your local waste facility designated in a disposal container as “recyclable” materials to be taken and reused as material for a new purpose defines recycling . In order to create a new and different product, a recyclable product is turned back into a raw form that can be used. Recycling efforts can significantly reduce additional waste that will not only harm the planet today , but future generations as well. We must make the most to conserve, recycle and reuse whenever possible because the natural resources on our planet earth are limited.
The world is experiencing a dilemma today. Many people suffer from hunger, malnutrition, and other problems caused by the lack of sufficient food. However, many other people buy or order excessive foods and waste a lot. In my community, food waste is much more serious than food shortage, and it is easy to see that people throw foods in the dustbin and the foods indeed are still eatable. Food waste is a serious problem. It not only wastes money but also causes some environmental problems, such as pollution and rats. However, many people do not realize the problem now. Considering that food waste is troubling, it is important to initiate a movement to motivate residents to reduce food waste, and the movement can be carried out through reeducatice and facilitative strategies.
To begin with, people should recycle because it protects our living area, Earth. First, recycling can cut down pollution. If people recycle, there would be fewer chances of recyclables being burned, tossed in or near the ocean, parks, natural animal habitats, gutters, and schools. Recyclables being burned create air toxins that harm the natural
People tend to consume a lot, when there is consumption, there is waste – and that waste becomes a big problem that needs taken care of, which costs a lot of time, space and resources. If not managed, in turn, the world that we live in will become a hazardous place for all living things. According to the World Bank, people throughout the world, “spend $2.3 trillion a year on food and beverages alone” (Global Consumption Database, 2018), that is quite a lot. In addition to that, the world count mentions that, “we throw out over 50 tons of household waste every second. A number that will double by 2030” (The World Counts, 2018).
