With the way we are going with carbon dioxide pollution saturating the air, will the world begin to expel us to cleans itself? Will we, as people, learn to respect the earth in time to reverse what we have one? Is there a time frame that we must go by before it is too late? Many questions can be asked regarding the climates changing rapidly and pollution covering cities to the point of the smog blocking the sun from visibility. What can we do, how can we help, where do we start? In my opinion we need to start soon before it is too late.
We, the American people, have been most certainly blessed with a nation that defends our personal safety constantly. We lead relatively safer lives on a day to day basis, In comparison to many of the other countries we share this planet with. Its not to say that we do not have a great deal of our own issues here at home. Yet the fact remains that due to the strong efforts of our elected leaders and military power worldwide, most Americans have the privilege of going to sleep at night feeling safe. We often have used this hard-earned freedom to create some of the biggest artistic and scientific accomplishments known to man. One industry that benefits from this the most is the movie industry. Over the last 50 years Hollywood has produced some of the most epic films the world has ever seen. Star Wars, Avatar, The Fast & The Furious, Titanic, Harry Potter, Terminator, and most recently Avengers: Infinity War being by far the most profitable movie of all time.
It’s 2018, an age of progression and advancement. We’re experiencing a whole new era of technological innovations. Some might argue that we’re living in a second industrial revolution. As technology advances, so does its fuel.
Human-induced climatic change is becoming more and more prevalent as the years go by. However, there is still a mashup of conflicting information and interests surrounding this sometimes controversial topic. Hopefully, I can pick through some of these issues and provide a clear list of the 5 most important pieces of climate-related knowledge.
Now I'm no scientist, but I've been very intrigued by the thoughts for future human civilization. I tend to wonder what our potential is as humans, and as we become more and more advanced in technology, what kind of heights we could reach. Of course, it may not be in our lifetime, but have you ever wondered how humans would be 500 years from now? Back in the early 1900s, people believed flying cars would be mass produced, or even that education would be "much more hi-tech."
I woke up in my cell with an excruciating headache. I was tied to many, many tubes. One to give me nutrients, a couple for my waste. They were beginning to get painful. The freezing air of my cell eased the pain, as cold air always did.
What have we done? This discovery cannot be released to the public. They cannot know that THEY are the cure. There's got to be another way other than this.
I looked up at the sky hoping for a change but saw none. I kept walking towards town. We needed more filters. Thinking of that, I checked the levels in the gas mask I was using now; still in acceptable limits. We were reminded to check all the time, but for the most part, this whole island was safe. One of the benefits of being in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, along with that, it wasn’t as dark here as it was in the rest of the world. Everything had happened in a week or so, and I had missed it all being on holidays in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. If I hadn’t been here I would have been at home in New York, one of the first cities hit. News may have traveled fast but I still couldn’t piece together from the information that was available who shot first. New York, Beijing, Moscow, then five of the major European capitals. The only ones to survive are those that got out fast enough and knew where to go and what to bring. Humanity was all that was left, not countries and currencies. Everybody helped everyone, and everybody was put to work. Having been a maternity nurse before it happened, my nursing skills were still put to use. The effects of not having natural sunlight were devastating, including a plummeting birth rate. I was now the only pregnant person in the world that I knew. I had also delivered two babies since this started.
The rapid rate of urbanization has initiated an array of challenges among major cities in India. The massively growing population is one of the major issues faced by the metropolitan cities.
In my hands I held a glass tablet. It displayed the face of the man we were about to arrest. Blue writing surrounded him, notes on the allegations against him, details about him, the recently acquired warrant tucked neatly down in the corner.
Has the government got you down? Are you tired of being a part of society? Are you longing for a modern-day utopia? Do you wish you could just float away to sea like Tom Hanks in Castaway (Just kidding!)?
