Global Warming

Extracts from this document...


Global Warming Global warming is a serious problem that is endangering our life and the life of our planet. The temperature of the earth has reached record levels. The level of CO2 has reached and overcome all the records previously registered. The whole ecosystem is changing. The flowers are blooming in winter, the birds are returning in February. The seasons are changing too. Winter is disappearing, spring is getting hotter and summer is getting longer.

The same thing will happen to the wind. ...read more.

These things are very small that they seem to do not make any difference, but if we all do it we will make a big difference. This is the only chance we have to save our planet. The preservation of energy might be a bit difficult because we would have to slightly change our way of life, but if we all do it we will save our planet and our life too. This is the only way to save our planet so we have to do it, and don't think "We have time, we can do it later", because we don't have time. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
