To all of the people that have all of the electronics one can imagine; do you really think you do not make a difference? Because there are many more like you, who do not think they make a difference. If you could add up all of the people like this, you might get an immense number of CO2 emissions just coming out every day. Think about it. You are currently and constantly killing our planet, along with everyone else, just more so.

Despite my last post, I’m going to play devil’s advocate here. Let’s pretend I had all of these electronics. Why shouldn’t I have them? I’m just one person, I couldn’t possibly make a difference. Just because I charge all of these all of the time, why do I support the CO2 emissions to the atmosphere? Discuss.
Having the latest technology is not exactly the most improtant thing ever, but if you want to keep up with events, you might need something of the sort. Imagine you live somewhere like London, dont have any electronics or internet, and you want to visit the London Eye. When you show up, the entire thing is not moving, and there is a person shouting that there are some technical problems, and it wont be working until tomorrow. If you had some sort of news-giving device, you might have see that one of the bolts came loose, and they had to send electricians and mechanics up there to fix it! It could have saved you a large chunk of your day, and you could have done something else, instead of wasting your time with an oversized (broken) ferris wheel. However, this was merely an inconvenience. This could have been avoided wiht the use of some electronic, but it’s not like your life is going to end. As shown, having an electronic is an INCONVENIENCE, not a neccessity.
I believe that having the latest technology is more of a want than a need. Everyday, I hear someone say “I WANT the new Ipod” or ” I WANT a new phone”. Every once in a while I’ve asked why they want one so badly and the answer is usualy either 1. “My current one sucks” or 2. “Because its way better than the older ones”. But honestly, do you really NEED a new ipod if the one you have works just fine?
I don’t think anyone really needs any of the latest tech. It’s a want in my opinion. If you use it to relieve stress try and find something else. If you can’t I guess that’s okay. Seriously though, limit the things you buy that destroy the environment. Think of the future, how are your descendants going to use these things and have fun if they’re dead or can’t for another really bad reason that has to do with global warming. To not care about them would be extremely selfish. You’re not the only one in the world so don’t mess it up for everybody else, especially the people who are actually trying to help the environment.
For me, having the latest technology is a want but not having the latest technology can also be a huge disadvantage. If i didn’t have a computer i don’t think i would able to finish half of my assignments so for kids who don’t have a computer or a printer and who have to finish all of there homework at school during lunch it must be really hard. For kids who do have computers however, restraint on buying the latest computer or phone and not using them all the time is probably a good idea.
I support the consumption of meat and fish because it not only provides many essential protein for the body, but the meat is accompanied by essential amino acids needed. The 20% is pure meat protein. These substances are essential for growth, defenses and tissue regeneration.
Fish is one of the healthiest foods and complete, consume twice a week brings huge health benefits thanks to its nutrient composition.
One hundred grams of fish provides on average 18 grams of high biological value protein, ie protein which is easily assimilated by our body as well as being easy to digest
There are many reasons to why we should use green cleaning products. When we hear the word green we staart to think about life, plants, or maybe recycling. Green products are products that have less of an impact to the environment or also known as eco-friendly. People use green cleaning products to avoid harsh chemicals in conventional cleaning products. Here IS a comparison between two green cleaning products to see which is more eco-friendly. Many compare the Green Works natural by clorox to the Nature’s Source by Windex. They are both fairly similar. I think we should use green products cause they contain less toxins.
Hi. I am Meghan M from the US. Hunger can cause serious mental and physical issues. In the first 1.44 min. of this video their are some important statistics about hunger. It tell who and how hunger affect people. After watching this video it sparked an idea that since people who go hungry often have these health issues their children and future generation will most likely be stuck in this recurring cycle because they cannot focus in school so they can’t go on to college not just because of money but also their grades aren’t at an acceptable level. This why people like us have to do something about it because we are lucky enough to not have to worry about where our next meal is going to come from. by donating food to food banks and handing leftovers or a snack pack taped on to a water bottle to people standing on the side of the road can make a huge difference not only in their health, but it can brighten their day to.
Hi. I am Meghan M from the US. when I calculated my carbon foot print i realized that i was was only above average because of my air travels and the fact that i always forget to turn off lights around the house. I found out that a 100watt incandescent filament bulb which is lit for an average of 4 hours every day will have an out put of 100kg of CO2 will be produced every year. In my house that is 11,700kg- 23,400kg of CO2 produced every year from my lights alone. by turning off at least half of these light i reduce my CO2 out put to 5,850kg - 11,700kg per year. this is an easy way to make a big difference, especially if millions of people take the time to duble check that all their lights are turned off before they leave.
