We Speak about Global Warming
I read a lot, especially teen's magazines. In those magazines, global warming listed as today's big issue. Global warming popular for its definition that may lead to the end of our beloved earth. Let's see what actually global warming is.
The simplest meaning of global warming is an increase in the average temperature of the earth's atmosphere. Thus, responsible for the change of global climate and the rise of sea levels. From the short description above, we can imagine how dangerous those pops phenomenon is.
Most of global warming effects are negative. The deadliest of all effects is the polar ice caps melting. According to the National Snow and Ice Data Centre, if the polar ice melted today, it will raise the sea levels into 230 feet. The other bad things are; polar ice are made of fresh water, so that when it melted, it will desalinated the sea. The desalinisation of the sea, sure thing, will “screw up” ocean currents, which regulate temperatures. It may cause the extinction of sea populations.
Global warming, slowly, causes more natural disasters. For example, hurricanes. The increase of ocean’s temperature reflects to the more frequent and stronger hurricanes. It also possible to cause heat waves in some areas and increase the probability of droughts. Possibly, It’s Africa which will get worse but it doesn’t means that Europe will be safer.
When we see many damages, we will think about the money spent to recover it. So, we can conclude that global warming also affects the economy problems.
According to some facts above, we as human being should have realised that there are many things we could fix. We can share a vehicle; use public transportation more often; or just do the easiest one, try to turn off your lamp when you sleep, I’m sure that will really help.
Even a child can do big from now on, to change the future. Try to speak your mind. Children can beat adults while they scream together especially for a popular issue like global warming. They will impress more communities than adults can do, because children’s thoughts are rare beside, adults’ are likely considers as ‘common’.
The question may be, what kind of ‘scream’?
Ask your parents to help you and your friends, make a change. Encourage them to bring you to the nearest TV station, or radio station. There, all you have to do is only speak. When you speak everything there (on a radio or TV), not impossible that, one of the national legislations will watch you or hear your ‘scream’.
You can also write. Write to a local newspaper offers so much help to change society’s mindset. You can also join a cyber community such as Teen Ink (where you can write anything), then write about ‘Global Warming’ or ‘Climate Change’ there, tell them what age you are (the younger the better), use your own language and impress them by writing in such a naïve words.
If you think ways above are too difficult, then just do this. Watch some film about global warming or climate change, then share it to your friends! By using this methods, indirectly, you have influenced your friends to find a better solution for the future!
See, there are tons of things we can do for the earth, to make it get over climate change. From the smallest to the biggest. From avoid too much opening the refrigerator’s door up to creating a new community that stands for global warming precautions. Global warming and everything related may hazardous for us, but we are more dangerous for it!
