Reduce Global Warming!
How many of you already feel very warm in this room/hall.
What if I tell you that in another 40 years, the temperature outside is going to be so hot that you will feel like a baking bun inside an oven? It is a horrible scenario isn’t? Well, that is the exact situation we are going to be in if we don’t stop Global Warming now. Today. To give a heart start, Global warming literally means that the Earth’s average temperature is rising. Data recordings have shown that the Earth’s Global Temperature is rising in an alarming rate such that by the end of this century, the global temperature is estimated to have risen by 6.4 degrees Celsius. This rise in temperature is caused by increased emission of greenhouse gases produced by humans in activities such as burning of fossil fuels. Gases such as Carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous dioxide, (HFCs) are a few of the greenhouses emitted into the atmosphere by humans. This may seem little to us, but with each degree rising in the Earth’s temperature, the delicate fabric of Mother Nature is being destroyed. Imagine cute, little baby penguins dying because of us humans! We don’t want that to happen, so we need to take certain steps to reduce global warming. As students, we can play an important part in stopping global warming by following these two important ways to reduce emission of Green House gases. Number 1: Switch “OFF” lights and all electrical appliances when we leave the room or when not in use. This saves electricity which in turn reduces the burning of fossil fuels to produce electricity. Not only can we save the Earth, we can also save money. Number 2: Use the 3Rs- Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Reduce usage of Paper, Plastic, newspapers, glass and aluminum by choosing reusable products instead of disposable. Also, Reuse paper, plastic and newspapers by using the blank side of a one sided printed page. And don’t forget to recycle these resources! By following these steps, we can reduce up to...
