These activities that are from our carbon footprint add to global warming.
Pollution makes people, animals and plants sick and can even kill them. Humans are the cause of pollution by putting harmful toxins and chemicals into our environment. We need to reduce our pollution to make the future better for everyone.
Some pollution you can see, such as smoke from factories, but sometimes you can't see it at all. On Earth Day we can take time to ride our bike, walk or ride in the car with others to cause less pollution. We can change the earth's climate from the greenhouse gases. We change the climate and environment through industrial practices.
8 Ways to Keep the Earth Clean we always are encouraging others to get involved and support efforts working toward a clean environment and healthy planet. You know how all anyone seems to be concerned about anymore is keeping the planet “healthy” and clean. Well, there is a very good reason for that. More and.
When people began using machines, automobiles and factories, it changed the way we live. Before this period called the industrial revolution, very little pollution was released into the atmosphere.
This is because we are using more fossil fuels and deforestation, which is causing harm to the atmosphere and making the air warmer. Things that cause the weather change are watching television, playing video games, using the microwave, using the washing machine, the dryer and riding in the car. This Earth Day, try not to watch as much television, turn off the lights when you aren't using them and ride your bike instead of riding in the car.
The greenhouse gases are causing the earth to get too warm for the animals to live. Many of the species of plants and animals are becoming endangered because of global warming. Most of the animals aren't fit for the warmer weather change, which is making them try to move north, toward the colder weather.
The warmer weather increases water temperature too.
This is harming the life of the animals that live in and near the water. Polar ice caps are beginning to shrink, killing animals like polar bears and penguins. The picture shows a polar bear stuck in the middle of the ocean on a glacier because the ice is melting. We don't want this to happen to all of the polar animals!
We want to take care of our environment so we dedicate Earth Day to remember to keep the planet clean for ourselves and the animals living here. We need to protect our environment and appreciate nature in order to keep it healthy.
With out a healthy environment, we can all get sick and it hurts the plants and the animals that live on it! If we want to have the planet stay for many years to come, we need to keep it clean and healthy, just like we keep ourselves clean and healthy. If we don't respect our environment, the animals can start to die and some day the planet might not exist with too much pollution and harm. If we reduce, reuse and recycle the things we use, we can help keep the environment clean and healthy!
Reduce means to use less of something.
We can use less energy and save electricity by remembering to turn off the lights, the television or anything else in your house. We can use less plastic by asking for paper bags in the store, buying water bottles that reduced the plastic used to make it and we can make sure to recycle plastics instead of throwing them out.
Reuse is when we use things more than one time. We will support you and your community.
