MANKIND KILLING OUR PLANET.

Our planet contains a variety of landscapes, forests and different climates. Over the years it has gone through many changes in its climate and the species that live on it. Now it seems that our planet is being detrimentally transformed, not by natural events, but by the actions of one species-mankind.

Are we as humans changing planet earth? The facts certainly show that there has been a change in climate and that it is Human induced. It has become noticeably hotter and we have been experiencing bizarre weather and earthquakes and tidal waves are on the increase all over the world.

These dramatic changes are due to an increase in carbon dioxide gases that are being emitted into the earth’s atmosphere. This increase in gases in turn causes an increase in the greenhouse effect and therefore an increase in temperatures.

Every year humans add twenty five billion tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere by driving petrol cars and burying refuse that emits carbon dioxide as it decomposes.

Scientists reported in December 2012 that the latest efforts to emit emissions are failing. Global emissions jumped 2.6% in 2012 and are expected to increase in 2013.

Man has control over the world and everything in it. We all need to become more responsible as the atmosphere is polluted by day-to-day activities that we take for granted. We need to contribute to saving our planet by turning off televisions when not in use, turning down heaters by a few degrees or using blankets, decomposing of our waste properly, recycling and car pooling or using public transport where possible.

All these factors contribute to an increase in carbon dioxide and therefore an increase in global warming. Increased temperatures can cause death, disease and destruction. I urge every human to contribute where they can to help conserve our planet for future

    "It takes a village to raise a child", a famous quote with much more truth in it than may be realized. As a person, being part of a family, community, and country in the world is so mandatory for survival, that not making mankind part of our business is not an option. Survival, as human beings, is not plausible without the outside help of others. Each and every day, whether we realize it or not, we are being helped by others, and more than likely, helping others along the way as well. People…

In the asteroid’s trip around the sun it spends half its orbit closer to the sun than Earth, it also passes ahead of our planet, and about half of its orbit farther away. It is too distant to be a true satellite of our planet, but it is the best and most stable example to date of a near-Earth companion, or "quasi-satellite."…

Renee Descartes, a philosopher, would argue against this, but Friedrich Nietzsche, a philosopher, and William James, a psychologist, would agree with this. Although James and Nietzsche come from different professions, they both wrote texts concerning man’s sense of self. William James believes man’s thoughts are constantly changing. He states, “…the…

Every time that we are using the car, we are contaminating the environment. We can try to use the car less and instead this one we can use bicycle at least once or twice a week. Or we can even walk for short distances. We have holes in the Ozone which let the ultra violet rays of the sun be strong, so IN SOME AREAS THE SUN CAN damage even our skin and sometime…

    The Generic Villain on Impersonation Posted by Ravyn on August 28, 2011 Last week’s riff on disguises covered ones that weren’t so much meant to be someone we weren’t as to not be who we were. Sometimes, though, we can’t get away with something quite so—heh, heh—generic. Instead, we have to appear to be someone who already exists, and that requires another set of complex factors beyond the challenges of a simple disguise. What, then, does an impersonator need to remember? Know. Your. Target.…
