Transcript of Enviroment
Global warming is the rising of the Earth's atmosphere average temperature over the past few years . 90% has occurred in oceans. Most of it is due to green houses.The major greenhouse gases are water vapor, which causes about 36–70% of the greenhouse effect; carbon dioxide (CO2), which causes 9–26%; methane (CH4), which causes 4–9%; and ozone (O3), which causes 3–7%. Clouds also affect the radiation balance through cloud forcing similar to greenhouse gases. To conserve the environment we need to stop releasing greenhouse gasses and pollutants.
Deforestation is the permanent destruction of forests in order to make the land available for other uses. An estimated 18 million acres of land is lost each year due to deforestation.Deforestation has many negative effects on the environment. The most dramatic impact is a loss of habitat for millions of species. Seventy percent of Earth’s land animals and plants live in forests, and many cannot survive the deforestation that destroys their homes.
Here are some facts about deforestation:
1. One and a half acres of forest are cut down every second.
2. The rate of deforestation equals the lost of 20 football feilds every minute.
3. Half of the world's tropical forests have already been cleared.
Air pollution is the worst thing we could do to our earth.Carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, is the main pollutant that is warming Earth. Carbon dioxide is considered to be a pollutant when associated with cars, planes, power plants, and other activities that involve the burning of fossil fuels such as gasoline and natural gas. In the past 150 years, burning fossil fuels have pumped enough carbon dioxide into the atmosphere to raise its levels higher than they have been for hundreds of thousands of years.
Other greenhouse gases include methane—which comes from sources as swamps and gas emitted by livestock—and chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which were used in refrigerants and aerosol propellants until they were banned because of their deteriorating effect on Earth's ozone layer.
Another pollutant associated with climate change is sulfur dioxide, a component of smog. Sulfur dioxide and closely related chemicals. Sulfur dioxide is known primarily as a cause of acid rain. But it also reflects light when released into the atmosphere, which keeps sunlight out and causes Earth to cool. Volcanic eruptions can release massive amounts of sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere, sometimes causing cooling that lasts for years.
I am just a little bird, nearly 1 week old. Deforestation ruined my life.I was in my nest, with my 4 older brothers. My parents were out looking for food. That's when the loggers came. They started at the far end of the forest, moving closer to our tree.
Finally, they hit our tree. I saw my parents, moving closer with a worm in both of their mouths. As soon as they saw the loggers, they started flying faster to our tree.
My parents tried to get me out of the nest, but I couldn't since I didn't know how to fly. Finally they quit. They stayed with me. The tree fully fell down. Everybody in my family died except for me. I had nowhere to turn to, nowhere to go. Deforestation ruined my life.
I do not want to hurt the little, harmless animals that live in the forest. But what can I do? I must do my job. I know that I should quit my job. But if I do, I have nowhere to go. I have no money if I quit. I really hate hurting the animals of the forests. I do not want to hurt them any more than they want to not hurt themselves.
Help Me! I don't want to do this!
We, the government, do not want to hurt the poor little animals of the forest, as the previous logger did not. But I do not have control over this topic. We have to clear-cut or just cut down the trees in order to make the land available for other uses, such as grocery stores or homes. The people in the city, or town need the cut land for many reasons. If we cut down the forests, although there can be many negative effects, we can make rooms for houses. People need to live in these houses. We could also make a grocery store or supermarket in place of the forest so that the people of the city have a place to go to for food or drinks.
We have to do this! Sorry!
POV: Global Warming
Global Warming has become a big problem for us polar bears. Because of global warming, we have much less land to rest or catch food on. Many times, us polar bears have to swim in the ocean or go starving without any food causing them to swim nonstop and attacking there habitats. This includes all the animals in Antarctica. Many
animals and people have died due to this issue.
Animals POV: Help! My food is running out and I am going to starve to death! Already polar bears are starting to dying due to this global warming affect and hopefully we should have a cure......
Environmentalist POV: Shoot! The polar bears are dying and so are the animals the government already made its move now its my turn! I need to save the animals and the environment before over world tears apart.......

Phew! I hate air pollution. The air here is so thick and bad. I can barely breathe. I might as well die. Soon, the whole world will be filled with unwanted gases and airs. The environment will be so bad that the people and animals will barely be able to live. How will we live like this? How? I cannot take this for long. Sooner or later I will barely live, and I might even die. Help us, and stop air pollution!
How to Prevent Global Warming
To prevent global warming we need to stop releasing green house gases into the atmosphere so that polar ice caps don"t melt and cause melting of the arctic doesn't happen. If we continue to release these gases the air will get thicker and soon the chances of deaths by gases will increase and cause our atmosphere to die along with people and animals.
We should also stop using chemicals such ozone and methane.
Ozone, or trioxygen, is an inorganic molecule with the chemical formula O 3. It is a pale blue gas with a distinctively pungent smell.
Methane is a chemical that we use in insects sprays that also harms. In my opinion I say that we should ban insects sprays with methane.
Air pollution has become a very big problem for the government. We are doing our best to try to stop air pollution, but it is very hard to manage. As the government, we already have many problems on our hands. Therefore, we rarely get time to focus on the problem of Air Pollution. We are already encouraging and educating both students and adults to stop air pollution or at least try to prevent it. Unfortunately, we, the government, need to do a little more to stop air pollution. Try to stop air pollution!
How To Stop Deforestation
There are many ways to help stop deforestation. One of them is to purchase a variety of recycled items. Examples of these are notebook paper, books, and shopping bags.When using recycled items, the demand for raw materials to replace these items can gradually decrease.
Instead of using firewood in your fireplace, try using coal instead. While it takes a little while to consume a few logs,be aware that it takes many years for a tree to grow fully.
We can also help organizations that focus on preserving rainforests and helping the environment. If we all work together and pitch in a little, deforestation can be stopped.
One of my final ways to stop deforestation is to cut back on palm oil. In some countries, an increasing amount of trees are cut to generate the palm oil used in the production of some breads.
Do Your Part And Stop Air Pollution!
Humans have a lot of man made factories and the smoke going into the air is toxic to everyone around us and the animals too, while you people have filters and clean the meat you eat. We can't do all this.The toxic air from the factory goes up into the clouds and the air accumulates over time. When it rains the toxic air turns the rain into acid rain and that acid rain is going into our environment, food and water. While you humans are cleaning and making sure your food is safe before you eat it we animals directly eat our food. All animals survive by eating and drinking. Because of toxic rain, all the things we eat and drink are filled with toxic. We could get seriously hurt or even die because of this. We all eat, drink and breathe. With air pollution, the earth will be filled with unwanted gases and airs. There won't be anything left on the face of the planet. Please, stop air pollution before us animals all die.
Stop Air Pollution!
How To Prevent Air Pollution
To stop air pollution, we can rethink transportation. Instead of riding a car, ride your bike. This reduces the amount of carbon dioxide emitted from the car.
You can also recycle. Doing this helps conserve energy and reduce production emissions.
Save electricity!Don't leave your electronic items( T.V., Wii, DS, e.t.c,) on while you are not using them. Less electricity consumed means less power produced and fewer pollutants into the air from burning of fossil fuels.
In conclusion, there are many problems regarding the environment. Some of these include air pollution, deforestation, and global warming. Global warming is the sudden increase in the temperature of the Earth's atmosphere. Deforestation is the permanent destruction of a forest in order to make the land available for other uses. Air pollution is the introduction or presence of a substance into the air that is harmful to the environment and living organisms. These problems have caused a major disruption in the environment and us humans and animal lives. These problems must be stopped.
Stop These Problems!
