Let me ask you a question. When you grow up and become rich and successful, do you want to buy a house by the beach? Sounds nice, doesn’t it? Well that’s actually a terrible idea. Let me tell you why. Have you heard about GLOBAL WARMING?
Global warming is a very nasty situation which is causing more frequent thunderstorms and making ice in the polar regions to melt, leading to rising sea levels. So think about that lovely beach house of your dreams you just bought.. Well it’s going to be underwater soon. That tropical island you wanted to visit... Yep, you guessed it.. Its underwater too. So what causes global warming?
One of the causes of global warming is the the burning of fossil fuels like coal and petrol. Burning these fuels releases Carbon Dioxide into the atmosphere, which then traps in additional heat from the sun, causing rising temperatures.
So cars that run on petrol or diesel, they are bad for the environment! The gases released as exhaust fumes are some of the gases that cause global warming. What else can we do? Use electric vehicles, or stop being lazy and bike or walk instead. That way, you can help reduce Global Warming. Isn’t that simple?
Another cause of global warming is deforestation. Trees breathe in Carbon Dioxide and breathe out oxygen. So, if you’re about to cut down a tree, think twice before you actually cut it down. Don’t waste paper, and try to make sure any waste paper is recycled. I don’t think we should continue cutting down trees unless we are planting new ones at the same time! Otherwise, we’re going to make Global Warming worse. If you want to do your bit to help reduce Global Warming, plant trees. It’s simple. Don’t you think?
If you’re worried about Global Warming, what else could you do? Well, don’t waste hot water. Taking a quick 5 minute shower will use a lot less energy than taking a bath, or a long shower. Heating water up for showers uses a great deal of energy, so taking a long shower will increase global warming more than taking a short one. If you want to do you bit in conserving water and reducing Global Warming at the same time, have quick showers and don’t take baths. Easy!
In order to help prevent Global Warming, we need to use more environmentally friendly transport, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and stop wasting hot water. If you help by doing these simple these things, maybe buying that beach house isn’t such a terrible idea after all.
