Nowdays.. global warming is a hot issue for us.. is that a issue…?? No..!! it’s a fact, so you think that fact isn’t necessary to discussed and solve the problem…?? It’s really important to discuss.. So what is the relationship between youth and global warming..?? Do you think youth is only as a person who became an adult person and find who he/she is…?? No.., now youth is a problem for our world.
I am a youth.. and I am finding who I am.. and I have to get better.. I don’t want to be a bad boy I want to be a youth who usefull for my country and my world.and I can see, I can heard that youth in Indonesia were a bad person, why..?? because now some youngster sure bad condition is “cool”…such as throw their rubbish on the way, paint the government building with some bad word, smoking, clubbing, turn on lamp all day, change their exaust system to be a racing one and make a noise with those muffler, use air conditioner to much, and refrigerator effect.
So, youth is one of the big factor of global warming.. they didn’t know that global warming is the end of the world, because we know that if we use AC(Air Conditioner) it has a big effect, AC produce CFC(cloroflourcarbon), it can break the ozone ang if the ozone broken, Ultra Violet fro the sun can’t be filtered, so earth became hot,and will raise the high temperature, we know earth has 2 place where there so much ice there that’s north pole and south pole. So, if the earth became hot, the ice will be melting and happen a big disaster that’s the big “flood”.
Now, can conclude that youth make our world become hot and make a big disaster. So, what we have to do..?? We have to controll our AC and refrigerator using in our home, office, school, public facility and anywhere we are. we are the next generation so our earth’s fate is on our hand, it can be damage, or keep has the life on it..?? it’s on your hand friend.. stop global warming, simple life is better!!!…remember that.
Do you know about climate change? Yes, it was caused by global warming, and do you know that Indonesia get into list of Guinness World of Record and have a predicate as The Fastest Forest Destroyer? What will surely work is to cut down forests, not burn the wood and replant the forests with fast growing trees. When these trees reach a size at which their growth slows, they would be cut again. Back in the carboniferous era, trees fell into swamps which evidently provided a reducing environment. The oxygen and hydrogen in the wood were re-emitted into the atmosphere, and the carbon became coal. This process will work for us too (to reduce CO2 (it takes too long to make coal) if it proves necessary.
You not only save MONEY by following these simple tasks but also can contribute to the society by reducing CO2 emissions.
Switch off that Computer when you are not using it.
Switch off that T.V. when you are not seeing it.
Switch off that fan when no one is in the room.
Switch off that light, stereos, and other electricity appliances. Do you know if properly insulated you can cut your power bills by up to 50% .
Switch off your radiators, turn down your air conditioners before opening your windows. When you sleep, don’t adjust your air conditioners too cool. With up our air conditioners’ temperature two degree everyday, we can reduce CO2 emissions until one ton every year!
Change your lamp with compact fluorescent light, this light more preserve than the other lights, economical the energy more than 60% and 70% fewer produce heat.
As far as possible use less of hot water. Some do take cold bath. You can save energy here. Wash clothes in cold water, instead of hot water.
Walking and cycling is a good exercise for your body. So avoid automobiles if you can. Trains and buses is not only a cheaper mode of transport, it also burns less fuel per capita than cars and PLANES. Reducing speed and air conditioning cuts car fuel consumption and your hard earned money.
Try to buy fruits, vegetables and other items nearby to your house rather than traveling to the market in automobiles. Carry items in one baggage rather than doing excess of packaging each item. By not packing every item you save plastic and cardboard. Imagine, if in one day we can reduce to use two plastics, it means in one year more than 500 plastic we can reduce.
Start from a little thing in our day activity. Even tough just a little thing, but if everyone do the same things will help our earth even more our grandchildren too! Stop global warming! Save our planet, love our planet, because this is our home, our source of life. It’s not a time for talk but for do! Start from your self, start from a little thing, and start from right now.
