Keeping the Environment Clean
We are supposed to take care of this planet, but are we doing so? We are not doing much. The little effort put into recycling or other small things is not enough. We must make severe changes, especially with all the gas consumption for cars or all the fuel smokes from industries that affect our environment. This must stop now! The rate of global warming is increasing rapidly and we must slow it down before it is too late. We must take action now and save our world.
The atmosphere is something that is around us everyday, but do we really think about the changes that occur in it. It isn't that we just aren't paying attention, but more of the fact that it is hard to notice slight changes over long periods of time. Even though the causes of global warming are known, the exact effects it will have on us in the future are yet to be determined. We, the people need to understand that we need to act now in order to keep the world as we now know it the same in the future.
Many scientists believe that humans cause the increase in temperature. Carbon dioxide is the most important gas that humans have contributed. We also have methane, nitrous oxide, water vapor and other harmful gases. If the climate changes, then it will mean we have to change how we produce our food. Rising sea levels could also affect us. It could cause flooding of coastal areas; wash beaches away, cover the agricultural land fields, and push millions of people out of their homes.
In order to stop this global warming from happening so soon, there are many things that can be done by everyone. The first thing that needs to be done is cut the amount of carbon dioxide by half the amount. This can be done by three ways. The first way is by conserving energy. Learning to use energy wisely can do energy conservation. Making smaller, more fuel-efficient cars...
