ADMT Lesson 1 Environment - KJ Shakti

Will human beings' selfish acts bring about the Earth's doom?

Ans: Yes!!! Definitely!!!

What we can we do to save the Earth?

Of course we can reuse, reduce and recycle. For example, we can reuse big juice bottles as watering cans or plant pots. We can also reduce our use of plastic bags by using big recyclable bags instead, especially when we go marketing. Recycling of boxes to make art and craft, and making sure that we dump recyclables to the recycling bins, are ways we can do our part.

I also think we should plant more trees in barren land and stop cutting down trees. This is because the more trees there are, there will be less carbon emissions as plants absorbs the most carbon dioxide in this world. To add on, plants give out oxygen which we need, to live.

World leaders should start working more cooperatively with the smaller nations in the world to save the earth from its doom. During the recent United Nations Climate Change Conference Copenhagen 2009, the President of the United States of America said that they were going to take note of what was needed to be done. Only Brazil, China, US, South Africa and India were agreeable. The rest of the smaller nations were not happy with the decisions made as what the bigger nations agreed on did not really address the world issue of global warming. The smaller nations called the agreement the start of a holocaust.

I also agree with the idea of synthetic trees being developed from the baobab trees, native to Africa and Australia, to temporarily store carbon dioxide. Please read this article about it.
This would buy us some time to save the world.
