Global Warming Speech

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Hello, I?m Courtney Toner and don?t get me started on the environment. I am honoured to be able to speak to you today. I am a science trainee and would like to take about 5 minutes of your time to update you on the dangers of global warming. Our world is always changing. Look out your window long enough and you might see the weather change. Look even longer, and you'll see the seasons change. The Earth's climate is changing, too, but in ways that you can't easily see. We all know about global warming, But do we really care or try to do at least some of the things that will help stop it or at least slow it down? Do you like polar bears? Because in a few years how would you feel if these polar bears no longer existed in a few years? time- because of you. Polar bears are running out of ice chucks to sleep on as they are all melting. And sadly drown from swimming too far to find some ice Do you know what a glacier is? Well they?re very important. A glacier is a huge mass of frozen ice, some people live of the water from the glacier but the world is getting warmer and the ...read more.


But if we don?t act, and warming increases by 5 to 9 degrees by the end of this century, the damage will be catastrophic and irreversible. THE QUESTION?WHY? Why should we change? Well? Quite simply, because we are addicted to fossil fuels. And it is the burning of these fuels ? coal, oil, gasoline and natural gas and the greenhouse gases they produce ? that is the primary cause of global warming. Carbon dioxide is produced by power plants, cars, manufacturing, and to power residential and commercial buildings REDUCE. the amount of the Earth's resources that we use. RE-USE Don't just bin it, could someone else make use of it? RECYCLE Can the materials be made into something new? Now I bet you?re thinking ?what can I do, I?m only a kid!?? Well there are many things that we can do but we are all tired of hearing them. Together we can prove to the adult world that we care, so they will think twice about ignoring global warming, since we are the future and we are willing to support change and make a difference to protect this wonderful world, this gracious globe and life giver - our mother earth. ...read more.


In conclusion this is nothing to be scared about, unless you want to help. This cannot be stopped in all honesty but can be slowed down by your help! The real problem is the population. There are too many people in the world, which means knocking down rain forests, tree?s, land- making me cars, needing more water. This can?t be stopped because I?m sure we can?t just kill a couple of billion people? In summation I have to admit climate change is a complicated, scary topic. And it is so complicated I don?t really understand all of it so I don?t want you to walk away not taking in every word, but I do expect my speech helped you, on knowing what is destroying the world and what can be helped. I want you to go home to your parents and tell them to turn the heating off, or not waste water I want you to know the importance of our world. Without it, we have nothing. No blackberry?s, no Facebook or twitter, nothing. So tell me again why are we destroying it? If you have any further questions please don?t hesitate to write to me. Thank you so much for giving me your time- I hope you learnt a lot and are planning to help get the world back on track. Because let?s face it, where else can we live? ...read more.
