Is the world going to end because of global warming?
I am worried that the world is going to end before 2012 because of global warming. I want to know if the world is going to end because it effects me in the future. If the world is going to end what's the whole point to go to school or anything, if we do not have our futures? What will happen?
I believe that the people should start recycling and stop polluting the air because we have to learn how to take care for this world or else it won't take care for us. Some say the world is going end on December 29, 2012, and by that time I'm going to be 18 and I won't even have graduated from high school yet. But I'm not sure that it's going to be like that.
I would like to know information about this world and global warming because it's going to affect all of us. the humans are polluting this world so much that they don't even care. I think that they should do something about it.
Democratic party candidate Barack Obama should listen to us because there are a lot of issues that need to be taken care of, such as environmental conservation. That needs to be answered, and ending the war in Iraq. Obama should listen to us, the students. I know he has brought great changes already, but now we ask for his help. Obama will soon be the President, and now he needs to help us in these changes.
Even through we are not aloud to vote, the candidates should listen to us because we are the future and the future President needs to know for our future what do we need. One of the biggest issues that we need help in is global warming. The world has different issues each day, things are changing one by one. I am scared to know that my future might not be there because I think that the world is going to end because of global warming.
I think Democrat Barack Obama is the right candidate for President because I think that he is going to bring changes to everything that need to be changed. As he said, "Global warming is a challenge, it is a challenge for all of us."
I feel that Obama will listen to our problems. I was scared for my future before, but now I know that Obama will be the President, and that fear has gone away. I know that I'm not allowed to vote yet because I'm too young, but if I was allowed to vote, I would vote for Obama because the speeches that he gave and challenges that he faced. Now I know that he is the right one. Obama needs to change the problems into solutions. I'm not writing because of only me. I'm writing this because others who care about there futures as well.
The Green Party candidate, Cynthia McKinney says that "the situation" about global warming "is now quite clear. The United States can no longer hide its truculence under the mask of weather fluctuations or unclear science. Islands are disappearing; indigenous ways of life are threatened; indeed the world as we know it is at risk if the US continues to do nothing. Therefore, a drastic cut in emissions is necessary."
I think about this is that she is correct in some ways, but by saying that this world is a disaster because our life is been threatened is not going to change anything. We need to bring our knowledge together and combine them to go into the future and see how we could solve global warming.
Republican John McCain says that he believes that "it is going to be technology that gets us through this very difficult period as greenhouse gas emissions continue to increase and further damage is done to our planet."
Maybe the technology could help us with solving global warming, but technology is not the reason we have pollution in the air.
Ralph Nader, who is running as an Independent for President, says that he believes "it is time to break our addiction to fossil fuels. The evidence of global warming is mounting. We threaten the global environment with our continued use of fossil fuels. Not only is this an ecological threat, it is a tremendous economic threat, facing all of humanity. Global warming will bankrupt the re-insurance industry, spread infectious tropical diseases, and increase severe and unpredictable weather."
I agree that the diseases are increasing from day to day, and also that we have to stop using fossil fuels, and about the unpredictable weather. Yes, it is time to break our addiction to fossil fuels but the question to the next President is: How?
Democrat Barack Obama says, "We know our oil dependency is jeopardizing our planet as well. That the fossil fuels we burn are setting off a chain of dangerous weather patterns that could condemn future generations to global catastrophe."
The oil burning is killing trees and other minerals are increasing in the air. Not only is this jeopardizing the planet, this is the only reason that this world is ending. Its basically because we do things to ourselves, and that we do not think of any one else on this planet.
Bob Barr, the Libertarian candidate says: "One of the most complicated and controversial issues facing America is global warming. Although temperatures have increased in recent decades, the scientific community has been unable to make definitive judgments as to the past cause or future course of climate change."
Temperatures are changing, but what is the next President willing to do to stop this? We have to warn others about this before it's too late. This wonderful, polluted world is going to end soon if nothing changes. That's the way I think. What change could the next President make to save the earth? You cannot just say, "This is happening," and not tell us what we are going to do about it!
