Global warming


Global warming is when the carbon dioxide (otherwise known as CO2) is damaging the ozone layer. The ozone layer protects us from the sun’s rays, so since the ozone layer is damaged, the sun’s rays are making the earth hotter. This is causing icebergs to melt and water level to rise, causing floods.

Global warming makes me mad now because a lot of people know about global warming, believe in global warming, say they will do something to help, and they still don’t do anything. Also, you shouldn’t use air conditioning. You should really use a fan or water, because air conditioning, although intended to make you cool, actually is one of the things that contributes a lot to the global warming problem. I think people should think of the long term effects over the short term effects!

Global warming is happening faster then ever. Some places are in danger of flooding. Also, a lot of animals are dying, including polar bears and seals! If global warming keeps going, at this rate, the earth is going to be inhabitable in around a single generation. For the people who say global warming doesn’t exist, there is a lot of proof. Giant icebergs have been melting. Also, the global temperature has increased by at least 1 °C. That may not seem like a lot, but I think that the amount of carbon dioxide (a chemical that damages the ozone layer (ozone layer protects us from the sun’s rays)) is increasing in amount and therefore the earth is getting hotter and the icebergs are melting.

Also, because of global warming, there have been a lot more natural disasters. I have experienced a flood because of that. Tornados and a lot of other natural disasters also increase in number now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone has a part they need to do to stop global warming. For example, people need to take a bike instead of a car, and even if they can’t they should take public transit because there are a lot of people there already. You can also stop using heaters as often and actually just wear a sweater instead and during bedtime just wear multiple layers of sheets. Even if you can’t do a lot, you can still spread the information in try to encourage other people to help out. The future is not looking so great, and it won’t be great unless we make a difference. But together we can save the earth!

P.S. One person can make a difference!!!!
