Dear Dr. Singer,
Recently, I have read your opinion on global warming and how it causes our atmosphere to change. Today the global warming became one of the most important issues discussed in sciences, politics, school and public. There are a lot of myths and not proved evidence about global warming and the one that I do not agree with is your believe about global warming as a natural phenomenon. You also said that human beings are not able “to go back to living without energy.” I do agree with you that nowadays it is almost impossible to live without energy but there is another way that we could use it only in less quantity and amount, so our environment wouldn’t be polluted as it is today. I would like to bring to your attention couple of good reasons that I think would convince you that global warming is not a natural phenomenon but it is something that was caused by human neglect.
One of the most serious problems
that had changed our atmosphere and the environment around us is the pollution
from the use of cars and big tracks and contamination from the factories and
big corporations. Dr. Singer, if you really believe that global
warming is caused by natural occurrences than why do you think so many
countries and people in the world experience so many disasters and deadly
catastrophes like hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunami? Do you really believe it was all caused only
by nature, but not by human neglect? Even
our history can prove and tell how human negligence and carelessness changed
and affected not
only the nature and he lives of people but the next generations to come. One the most worldwide catastrophic tragedies
that killed hundreds of people and still effects thousands of lives today was
the explosion of atomic station in 1986 in Chernobyl, Ukraine. This explosion released tons of chemicals and
radiation into the air. At first the
most effected became the people in the city of
Another problem that dangerously changes our surroundings is the absence of recycling. Lately I have heard on the television that plastic bottles and cans that are discarded with other garbage wouldn’t ever be able to dissolve underground, which means that they would stay there for the years to come and vaporize bad chemicals into the air. There are different solutions that people could use to prevent this problem from happening but the one that would work best is more careful recycling and attention from the people and the government.
There is another solution that I have heard on the TV show about special lamps that would help us save the energy by 68 percent per year, and the money we spend for it. These lamps may cost a little bit extra than the usual ones, but they could save people’s lives in the future. The use of organic materials in our homes that are made from natural resources or recycling glass, wood or plastic can also help us prevent pollution and the global warming and give us and our children a cleaner air to breathe. Planting of trees is also another good step in making our planet more safer and less pollute. If every American would find the time and plant at least two trees, it would really help us to prevent the seriousness of global warming.
Everybody knows that
Dr. Singer you can see how all those facts show us how close we stand to the dangerous situation and what could happen if we’ll do nothing and continue to pollute our air. I am sure that 80% of global warming is happening because of people’s carelessness and neglect. This is only our fault of the situation that we face today. Thank you for your time and attention. I’ll hope you’ll take my opinion seriously and think about people’s part in the global warming.
