Here's an essay that I wrote
How to save the earth
The earth is a jewel in space. From the lapping of the ocean waves to the deserts, full of surprises and full of beauty. From the arctic tundra to the Himalayan mountain range, Earth is perhaps the greatest planet in the universe. But our mother earth is under threat from, and from every angle. Tree cutters, Hunters, pollution, overpopulation, and global warming are monsters coming at earth from all sides. How can we save our mother of whom we have placed our reliance on for eons?
Little things add up.
Little things add up in this world. If everyone picked up just one piece of litter, there would be over 300 million fewer pieces of trash that would otherwise go into our oceans, trash that would otherwise kill innocent animals, and get into our food. And if everyone picked up just 10 pieces of trash every day for a year, we would have saved billions and billions of tons of trash from corrupting our world.
Plant a tree
Since 1800, we have cut own over 60% of our forests. We cut down 15 billion trees every year. By this rate, Projections estimate that the last tree will fall in 200 years. We cannot let this happen. One tree can absorb up to 48 pounds of carbon every year. Imagine if everyone planted just once tree. We would suck out over 336000000 pounds of carbon from the atmosphere and reduce the effects of global warming. Every Tree also pushes 200+ tons of water into the air during its lifetime. Without trees, the land would heat up and we would all perish.
Help The wolves
Our little kidzsearch tradition is to spread awareness about wolves. But this applies to all animals. Originally the land was their home, and we took it from them without even saying thank you. Let’s say thanks to the animals and acknowledge their great role in the ecosystem of our planet. Post on the #HelpTheWolves group on kidznet.
You can do many things to help the earth. Of course, everyone in the world cannot plant a tree at the same time, but you can. Even one person can make a difference. Tell a friend and you can make double the impact. Our generation of kids are visionaries - we are the future, and it is our job to save mother earth.
