GREENHOUSE EFFECT AND GLOBAL WARMING
Hello Happy friends!
Are you ready to learn?
I’m Sarah, and today, we’re going to talk about a topic that worries me a lot.
Today, we’re going to talk about the greenhouse effect and global warming.
The first thing I need to say, is that all children in the world have a very important responsibility: Taking care of our planet, the Earth.
And that’s why it’s so important to understand all of the environmental problems, so we can find solutions, and solve these problems.
Do you know what the earth would tell us if it could talk?
(That I’m hot, I’m very very hot)
And that’s because of the greenhouse effect, it makes the earth become hotter and hotter over the years.
We are all responsible for this climate change.
That’s right, you and me.
For example, every time we turn the light on, or use hot water, we use energy. And this energy is usually made by burning coal, gas or oil.
If we also add all of the smoke that cars expel…
It’s very clear that we release tons and tons of contaminating gases into the atmosphere.
These gases are built up and form a layer in the atmosphere that prevents heat being released into space, making the earth a lot hotter.
It works like this greenhouse, it allows heat to enter, but it can’t escape. And that’s how it got its name: the greenhouse effect.
If the Earth’s temperature keeps on rising, it will cause many catastrophes. The ice on the poles will melt, meaning rising sea levels, so there will also be terrible floods. And lots of living things, like these polar bears or seals, will disappear forever.
But! We’re in time to solve this huge problem if all children in the world agree to start doing things properly. And it’s easy peasy!
We need to switch off lights and everything that consumes energy when we aren’t using it.
We need to recycle glass, plastics, paper, as many things as we can!
We need to use hot water in a more logical way, by having a shower instead of a bath, and this way we save soo much energy.
Oh! and the most important thing of all! We need to respect, and take care of nature, and never ever ever dirty it.
If all the children in the world start doing this, I can assure you that the Earth will be very thankful, and we will still be able to enjoy all the beautiful animals and landscapes on Earth, like these!
Please, please, don’t forget, if we want the Earth to stay this beautiful, we need to respect it and take care of it like it deserves, because it’s our home.
Goodbye happy friends! See you next time!
I hope you’re always ready to learn!
