Save the world

                     

Global warming is the climate change, in other words the increase of the heat in Earth’s athmosphere. Scientists have been working for years to stop its effects on Earth, but what can we do ?

There are so many ways to help stop global warming. First of all , you should stop wasting energy like electricity and gasoline. You had better turn off the lights or electrical devices if you don’t need and  walk or bike for short distances.

Moreover, we should reduce the carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere. You can grow more plants which need carbon dioxide to grow.

Finally, we had better integrate the 3Rs ( Reduce, Reuse, Recycle ) rules into our lives. Reduce the amount of your rubbish.  You shouldn’t buy  unnecessary things in the market  and you can sell or donate unwanted items in the house. Reuse the items such as jars, pots, newspapers, carrier bags, packaging papers, etc.  Classify the rubbish as paper, plastic, metal and glass. In that way, you will help these items to be used again.

" Our world is always changing. Look out your window long enough, and you might see the weather change. Look even longer, and you'll see the seasons change. The Earth's climate is changing, too, but in ways that you can't easily see."

What are some enviromental problems ?

What are some enviromental problems ? | The environmental problems | Scoop.it

 "Environmental problems can be found in all areas of the world, and they affect land, water and air. Some result from what humans take from the environment, in the form of land for agriculture, and accommodation for a rapidly increasing population; mineral and fossil fuel resources; and timber. These problems include deforestation, erosion, damage to ecosystems and reductions in biodiversity. Other problems stem from what humans put into the environment, in the form of various pollutants. These issues include climate change, damage to the ozone layer, urban pollution, and acid rain."
