We Are Going To Die

This petition had 2,964 supporters

Because of human kind, the world is suffering. We have only been here on this planet for 600,000 years, yet we are the ones who has done the most damage to Earth. We are the cause of various catastrophes all over the world. Look around you, and you'll see the effects of everything we have ever done. Overpopulation is affecting Global Warming. There are too many people, which means that there should be more houses or infrastructures to sustain the needs of the people. Therefore, cities grow more and pollution increases, more trees in the forests are cut, and there will be more trashes in landfills or dumps. Due to having many children, some parents do not have the funds to send them to school. This is why many are not educated. When a person is not educated, he is more likely to be unaware to the effects of what he is doing, thus increasing the number of ignorant people.

In the Philippines, there is a saying which translates as: "The garbage you throw improperly will come back to you". It is true. It comes back to you by flooding, landslides, and other disasters. Think about our future, think of what would happen if we do not change. Think of the children, think of the long-lasting effects of what you do. You do not have to be a politician or a celebrity, you do not have to be rich, you do not have to do big things to help change the world for the better. I am just a student, and you might just be a citizen of some country, but small things matter. You can recycle your things, throw your trashes properly, plant in your yard, spread what is happening, or be a good role model to others. If we start to change how we live, there is a greater chance that our children, and their children after them, will have access to what we have right now. We will never know if some animals living in the forests will be extinct or if there will be no more forests left for them to see. We will never know if there will be clean air or if there will be clean water left to them. Small things matter. We should act now before it is too late. The ice caps are melting, bodies of water are drying, and forests are burning. When will you open your eyes? When someone important to you dies because of a disaster? The GHGs in the atmosphere are rapidly increasing, this means that Global Warning will intensify. Would you still stand idly by and watch?
