HELPING THE ENVIRONMENT

Helping the Environment is fun!

Environment is everything that is around. It can be living or non-living things. It includes physical, chemical and other natural forces.

We have all heard of the phrases “Global Warming” and “Greenhouse Effect” but what does it all actually mean? Over the past 50 years the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history.

Glaciers are melting, sea levels rising, cloud forests dying and wildlife is scrambling to keep pace. By powering our modern lives we are releasing heat-trapping gases – greenhouse gases – in to the Earth’s atmosphere. These gases collect in the atmosphere and absorb sunlight and solar radiation that have bounced off the Earth’s surface. Normally, this radiation would escape into space – but these pollutants trap the heat and cause the planet to get hotter. That’s what’s known as the Greenhouse Effect.

Our planet is changing. We need to help it change for the better. There are lots of things that affect our planet in a bad way BUT the good news is that everyone can help to reduce them and do their bit for the environment.
