Adressing our environment for the future!
Today we discussed how not enough people realize whats going on with global warming and our Earth. We, the youth working for a greener planet, need to make our voices heard by getting the message out there. I feel like people are too focused on so many different things now that they are not focused on our Earth and the future. The atmosphere around our Earth is at 390 parts per million CO2 when were actually supposed to be below 350 parts per million CO2 just so that the Earth can support life on this planet!!!. This means that we as a world need to find a way to decrease carbon dioxide and pollution so we can have a future together--and how could we have one apart? We brianstormed ideas for building this cause in Buffalo. We can start Green teams in schools or find ways to recycle and conserve at school and more as a whole. Theirs only one Earth and we need to take care of it before we end it sooner than later. Recently on Saturday November 13 , 2010 we attended an Environmental Congress meeting. Where environmentalist Bill McKibben spoke about what we as a world need to do to help address global warming because it's THE ISSUE anda lot of people seem not to be aware about-some people in US Congress right now dont even believe in it! Now that's crazy. We got the opportunity to interview Bill McKibben and get more in depth with questions. Bill McKibben is one of the most successful activists on the planet about global warming and whats going on with it. He says that our government really doesn't seem to care about the issue so its up to us to rally together and make sure they know that if they arent for the environment then they aren't for us. Now lets go and get some things going, Youth its our future! -- Robert.
