Damage To Plants
Everyone needs to know that plants are very important in our lives. If we cut down rain forests, how can animals survive? We are destroying the habitats of wildlife. The population of creatures will start to decrease. Plants also breathe in most of the gas in the air, which helps reduce the carbon dioxide. Too much carbon dioxide in the air can cause the Earth to heat up. Did you know that one acre of forest can absorb 6 tons of carbon dioxide? Trees help recycle water. The trees' roots hold soil in place, which helps soil not to be washed away during heavy rains. This way, water can be stored underground. The water will be carried to all of the leaves of the tree. Most of the oxygen will be released back into the air. This process is called "transportation". This cools down the air a lot. Trees are also really helpful for cleaning the air. Trees trap odors and pollutant gases onto their leaves and bark. Plants and trees are really important for humans to exist in the world. Some ways to stop damaging plants is to stop burning or chopping down trees or plants. Recycling paper saves more trees. We have to think about the creatures that use plants as their food or home. Before killing plants or trees, think about what benefits they give us and why animals need plants.
Polluting The Air
Everyday, we humans use too much resources that pollute the air. For example, factories, cars, etc. Polluting the air can be very bad for human health. Air pollution cause coughing, burning eyes, and maybe even death. Now you can see how air pollution cause a bad impact on human health. Acid rain from carbon dioxide released into the air can damage property. Currently, people have been emitting too much carbon into the air. The air pollution causes the ozone layer to have holes. If we don't take action now and reduce the use of resources that can give air pollution, the sun's ultraviolet rays will heat up the earth. Global warming is mostly caused by poor gas mileage from vehicles. Polluting the air is very dangerous for humans, animals, and for our world. That is why we must learn to reduce the use of resources that can pollute the air. Riding a bike can be a great transportation instead of using a car to help the air to get cleaner. That is one of the ways people can help our planet be a better place for us to live in. Burning fossil fuels like coal, oil, and gas can release smoke pollution. Think about the animals or people that get sick or possibly die from the poisonous air.
