Good morning ladies and gentlemen, first of all let us thank to God who has giving us mercy and blessing so we can attend this moment without any abstacles. I’m sure that all of you know what is meant by global warming and how to reduce this problem. But i’m sure there are just a lot of people that really care about this problem.
First, there is little doubt that our planet, Earth, is warming. Over the last century, Earth temperature has risen by around 1 degree fahrenheit (0.6 of a degree celsius). The warmest since the mid 1800’s was the 1990s. The hottest years recorded were 1997, 1998, 2001, 2002, 2003.
The United Nations panel on climate change projects that the global temperatures will rise 3-10 degrees fahrenheit by the century’s end – enough to have the polar caps all but melted. If the ice caps melt, a vast majority of our countries borders will be under water. Monuments and great buildings, as well as homes and lives will be under water, including Yogyakarta, Jakarta or even Java Island. You can imagine what will happen with you, your family and all people.
So now we know what some of the causes are for global warming, how can we as individuals do our part to help save the planet?
The answer is simpler than you may think. You don’t have to go miles away from home to protest, or spend masses of money. If you try to follow the few simple steps that I shall now give you, you will have started to help us all and this planet. We can do small thing that can be a big thing sometimes.
Firstly, plant a tree. This could be easier than it sounds. Join or help out a local wildlife group and ask to plant a tree. Trees, when fully grown, will help keep the planet cooler. On the same point, you could protest against the demolition of the rainforests. This is the same principle, we need the trees to cool our planet and yet they are chopping them down to create roads or homes.
Something as simple as walking instead of taking the car will...
