The world of today has reached a point in time where rather than appreciate and cherish the natural resources that the earth withholds, the human race has done the complete opposite by taking absolute advantage of the planets assets and exceeding the earth’s limits when utilizing its natural resources.
I’d like to further research the seriousness of our earth’s environment and the effects it may continue cause if not acted upon. I’d like to also investigate the explanation or cause for not taking action on such severe manner, seeing is that we have been warned numerous times. I chose to research this topic because in the past few years, our world has suffered several natural disasters. With scientists repeatedly warning the population too take rigorous action, we as a society have failed to do so. Because of our environmental neglect, our society has had been forced to see and experience the terrifying ramifications due to our misuse of natural resources.
My relationship to the topic/personal stake:
In the past few years, America in specific has experienced quite a few natural disasters. It’s as if we’re just waiting to see when another tornado or hurricane will occur. I take this topic very serious and hope to discover some answers because some of family friends were greatly injured in just this past tornado. Tragedies like this can’t keep happening, yet will continue to occur if no actions are taken. My main concern and fear is to find that the only reason why we encounter such disasters is because of our own self-seeking and egotistical personalities. We’re not willing to lose any profits even if it means saving the world.
One of the first questions I will explore is the statistics there is regarding climate change. As the time has progressed and our era has modernized, scientists have discovered new sources for the rapid increase in climate change. Where were those new sources found and for what reason do they believe that whatever there is their doing more important than saving the world.
Subsequently I’d like to also explore the reasons why no one has cared to take action on such an important and severe issue. Is it because we’re not being informed or because we’d rather watch The Kardashians than listen to some boring scientists?
Furthermore, I’d like to investigate the effects that will transpire if no action is taken and how much longer can the earth handle such poor handling. I’ll also consider the many arguments that argue that climate change is not happening.
Sources and their input in my research: According to NASA, the Earth's climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human
