Global Warming


Air pollution is very bad for our earth and it's inhabitants, humans. Air pollution can cause lung problems and even kill people with asthma. Not only that, but it still furthering an environmental problem called global warming. Global warming is caused by the abundance of Co2 in the air caused by air pollution. This co2 makes it so that when the sun releases sun rays, it's kept in. Because of this, the earth will continue to heat up.

Why plant plants?

Some people ask why plant plants? Well theres a simple answer to that, imagine the world without oxygen. How would we live? How could other animals live? And why does earth have oxygen but other planets dont? Vegetation creates oxygen. Say if we cut down all the plants in the world and still had pollution in the air from coal plants, what would happen? We need to have oxygen to support all of human life, and that helps us by planting plants. Plus, who's to say that the plants don't look nice? They look great and can help clean air stimulation.

How to save water!


You might say that you don't need to conserve water because theres so much, right? Thats definitely true, but what about how many people live on this earth? Roughly, 7 million. It's not even about the amount of water, it's about how we can clean it. We as humans, are running out of resources to clean water. This is bad because if we can't conserve clean water, we will not have enough for our grandchildren or great grandchildren of future generations. We need to keep our clean water for millions of years. There are some helpful tips that are great ways to save water!

1) Cut 2 minutes on a shower! It's not too much to ask? Right?

2) When you brush your teeth, turn off the water after you wet your toothbrush!

3) Don't take baths! They contain at least 3 gallons of water and it wastes a lot!

4) Check pipes for leaks! One careless error can waste water without you even knowing it.

5) Save bottles of water in the fridge! So you can drink water without wasting it later.

Healthy food vs. unhealthy food

This is Healthy food vs. unhealthy food. As you can see, the unhealthy food is crossed out. Why? Well, because every part of the unhealthy meal is bad for you. For instance, the bread contains carbohydrates, but it's more than you should take in and wheat bread is a better substitute. The meat on the sandwich is fed corn, which is most of our diet today. That over consumption of corn is terrible for us and can cause obesity. The fries, have grease and salt, which is more salt then we should normally take in. The grease contains bad fats and it can get you sick. The drink, contains high fructose corn syrup which has corn in it as well, but it can cause high levels of obesity. The sugar can cause diabetes. The fruit though, it has complex sugars and it helps your body generate energy so you stay awake and fresh throughout the day. Which side do you choose?
