Sunday 8, 2010 Eng – 111 Slowing down global warming Global warming is causing many problems for us such as horrible storms, melting sea water, and extreme heat waves. Even though we always thought of global warming affecting us, we never thought of how we caused problems for global warming. For the past decades we did nothing but cause this major crisis, now Is the time we need to help it slow down. Us can be taking in many ways, individuals or a whole. Since there are more than a million things we can do to help slow down global warming, a few of them include: driving, planting, recycling all smartly!Did you ever think that coming to a sudden stop or taking off to fast effects the environment? Well the truth is, it does affect our environment. When you start and stop to fast you are actually consume more fuel with causes you to let off more carbon-dioxide into the air around you. Try watching how you drive like in traffic, don’t take off as soon as the car in front of you moves a foot then slams on his breaks causing you to do the same.
What if you have a neighbor or two who works in the same building as you or a block away?Instead of having two or more cars all going the same way, try only taking one car. Then that brings up the problem of who will be driving. You can always take turns driving for one, and two, if one person only works a block away it does not hurt walking a little bit. You won’t be burning any Carbone dioxide into the atmosphere. Both of these things take a part in each other, just by driving to one place. You can do more than two things to help slow down global warming. When planting in your garden, you’re not only helping the environment but your also helping others help the environment.
When you plant trees in your yard your helping soak up the carbine dioxide the cars produce. But what happens when you first have to water the plant, your using so much water? Trying placing your potted plants near your planted gardens that way you are not carry water over everything. Another way by staying away from not using as much water you can chose hardier plants or mulch on top of the soil to keep the moisture in.
Also when you don’t use as much water you’re helping the water companies. By helping them they do not have to expand on energy generate water for your own needs.By making your garden and your home look gorgeous your making yourself feel better because you’re doing something good for yourself but for the environments as well.
It’s easy being green – reduce, reuse, recycle! All three of the R’s flow into the other, one thing leads to another to help one problem. Reduce, buy less products, or buy in bulk. Also reuse whatever you can; food containers, fast-food containers, and even boxes. Buy canvas tots instead of using plastic bags, which helps the manufactures. They won’t need to use more energy to make plastic bags to waste.
Yet another way to help save; reduce, reuse, recycle! Since most things you do in your daily activity involve two or more steps which means you do more things to help slow down global warming. Joining organizations, using your computer smartly, and choosing better fuel and energy- efficient product are just a few more things you can do to help out. The more you do to help slow down this difficult time, the better you can feel about yourself during this hard economic time. Just like in slowing down global warming, one thing leads into another which happens for a reason.
