Hey guys, i have been thinking about it for a while now and i realize our mother earth is not doing well! With the climate change and all the landfills and polution we are slowly destroying our home!!!If you are reading this right now i just want to let you know that we need to help the earth so please go onto comments and ask to be a curator so we can make a diffrence!
You are on the couch, watching TV. Your clicking the button for something more interesting than all the wild fires and governors arguing. You don’t realize the earth is dying. It’s not only you that is affected, it’s the animals, the world. Temperatures are rising, glaciers are melting, wild fires are become more often. Humans are releasing harmful emissions into the air, creating the Green House Effect. People need to take larger steps to put an end to global warming. The main cause is the
Green House Effect. Gasses in the effect- Water Vapor: increases the chance of lots of rain/clouds(precipitation) Carbon Dioxide: comes from volcano eruptions, deforestation, land use changes, and burning fossil fuel. Humans increase the CO2 in the atmosphere Methane: A hydrocarbon gas produced from decomposition of waste, agriculture rice cultivation, domestic livestock Nitrous oxide: produced from soil cultivation, organic fertilizers, fossil fuel, nitric acid, biomass burning

You might ask, so what, what’s going to happen? Well guess what, it’s bad news. The earth will become warmer, there will be more precipitation and evaporation, ocean temperature will rise, ice glaciers will melt, wild fires will become more often, droughts, floods, hurricanes will become more intense, and sooner or later, the arctic will be ice free. Because of our selfish way of living, the world is falling apart. But it’s not only us. Animals are forced to change their behavior. Birds are migrating, breeding, and nesting earlier than before. Habitats are being wiped out.
Animals Effected: Orange-spotted filefish (Oxymonacanthus longirostris): Depends on coral reef habitats. Went extinct in Japan 1988 when ocean temperature went high. Quiver Tree (Aloe dichotomy): The quiver tree is unable to quickly adapt enough with climate change. They are mostly vulnerable to rapid change. Adélie penguin - They mostly rely on krill. But as the water's temperature is rising, the krill are disappearing. If they are more focused on finding food, it'd be harder to breed and raise
As climate change grows worse, so does pollen. People who have allergies are having it worse. Americans have more than 24 million with asthma and 50 million with seasonal allergies. Climate change is affecting our health, safety, and productivity. The carbon dioxide in the air is rising and plant are producing more pollen. Sunlight and air pollution create smog. 40% of U.S. people live in unsafe ozone levels. Breathing in too much ozone will damage your lungs.Global warming is consequential. You can help by saving energy! Turn off the lights when not used, TV, water faucet, always close the fridge, and don’t waste battery. Also, eat the food you buy. You can buy less expensive long-lasting bulbs. Another way to save energy is to not drive around so much. It’s better to walk, ride a bike, or skateboard. But the best way is to speak up about global warming. Tell your friends, your family, and the world. These steps will make a difference into putting an end to global warming.
