poverty and water

            In countries all around the world families and entire towns suffer do to poverty. Food and water supply is difficult to find. Many of the water they do find is dirty and polluted. Many people when thinking of this think of small children in Africa or in Haiti. Yes there is a lot of this happening there but places like Turkey and Ukraine, India, and many other places.
Just the poverty alone causes damage to any person child or adult. You cannot by food or clothing. The children’s parents cannot afford an education for their children. Their only transportation is walking or horse back they cannot afford to buy even a bicycle.
            As for the water the people in poverty usually don’t have clean water to drink. And if they drink the dirty water and get very ill. They can get diseases and those diseases may cause death.

global warming

Global warming is an issue that not many people are taking it to seriously. Many people believe that global warming is a myth, an urban legend like big foot or the loch ness monster. But it is true, scientist have proven that it is happening and at a fast pace.

Scientist have also proven that most of it is due to human pollution according to the IPCC. It is true that the earth many times before heated up and cooled down (experienced climate change), but not such as fast as this one. It usually takes a couple centuries, but this one is taking only 1 century or less.

The place feeling the heat of global warming is the Artic (Alaska, parts of Canada, and eastern Russia), glaciers are melting, native tribes and polar bears are losing homes.

Not just land is suffering the climate change, the ocean is suffering greatly. Many of the ocean’s wild life and coral reefs diminishing. Coral reefs die in the slightest change of temperature. There are also fish that are extremely sensitive to climate change
