The World We Living in Today There are many different things I take in to consideration when it comes to the world we are living in today. There are many positive things happening in the world today, but we are going to focus on the negative. Crime is a major issue, along with the economy and global warning. To begin with, crime and its effects, when we look at what crime in our country is causing, we must begin to ask ourselves, “What and why these things are happening?” We have to alter the way we are living because of gun violence in our neighborhoods. For example, in some communities some children are not allowed by parents to go out and play for the fear of them being shot.

Also mining coal and oil allows Methane to escape which is naturally in the earth. Methane is a colorless, odorless flammable gas produced by decomposition of organic matter from coal used as fuel. Population growth is a problem also, more people means more food and more methods of transportation. Clearly that means more Methane that will…
