Truth When people first think of New York they think of the city as a great
place for opportunities and a place where they can see diversity.
When I see my home, I think of all the trash I see, and wonder why
this place has become so popular, without us even keeping it clean.
Diversity is one
New York, but
always a good
here are like
“Let us all hope that the dark clouds of racial
prejudice will soon pass away, and that in some not
too distant tomorrow the radiant stars of love and
brotherhood will shine over our great nation with
all their scintillating beauty.” –Martin Luther King
To make it in New
York you need to
know people to
make it here. You
can’t “make it
here” on your
own, but knowing
New Yorkers is the
New Yorkers are
They don’t have
respect for people
around them.This was a typical day of work for me. Walking through the
parking lot, a common thing found is complete and udder
disrespect by the people who live there. They obviously
don’t realize the harmful affects of their actions.
People don’t respect others
property and they don’t
take road signs seriously.
You shouldn’t be
damaging road signs,
because you are
safety. Defacing and/or
stealing a road sign can
cause issues for drivers
and result in an accident.
If people thought about
there actions and the
consequences that they
will face, maybe we would
live in a safer environment
than we do today.
Our youth deserves to grow up in an environment where they are safe, and they can
actually be kids. Children shouldn’t have to grow up in a polluted world where
they are forced to learn things that aren’t appropriate for their age. Just because
immature teenagers think its fun to voice themselves all over places where it is
wrong to be voicing, doesn’t mean that kids should have to put up with their
elders immaturity. Children have an innocence, and because someone immature
wants to ruin it by graffitti-ing a child’s play area, their innocence is taken away
from them at too early of an age, and personally, I don’t understand why anyone
would want to do that.
AnimalsThe woods is home to
many animals. Litter
and graffiti is
harmful to humans,
but can also affect
Litter kills or injures animals.
Many small animals crawl into
bottles or jars and get stuck
and slowly starve to death.
Animals get caught in plastic six
pack rings, plastic bags, fishing
line and a multitude of
throwaways. Birds that are
stuck, can’t fly away from
danger. Sometimes animals
caught in six pack rings are
strangled as they grow too big
for the opening. Animals get
cut, infected and die. Every
year, millions of birds, fish and
animals die from litter.
Even though there can be graffiti,
litter and people who don’t
care about the environment,
you shouldn’t let that deter
you from your view of New
York. Amazing sites like the
statue of liberty is what helps
make the state of New York
such a beautiful state.
Breathtaking wonders such as
this, is one of the main
symbols of New York because
of not only how statuesque
and wonderful the site is, but
also how it symbolizes our
freedom and pride of being an
American and a New Yorker.
Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.
You see that pale, blue dot? That's us. Everything that has ever happened in all of
human history, has happened on that pixel. All the triumphs and all the tragedies,
all the wars all the famines, all the major advances... it's our only home. And that is
what is at stake, our ability to live on planet Earth, to have a future as a civilization.
I believe this is a moral issue, it is your time to seize this issue, it is our time to rise
again to secure our future. -Al Gore
Air is shared between everyone, and it is essentially
clean. That is why it is important for us to remember
to keep our air clean; its what keeps us alive. New
York may not have the cleanest air or the least
polluted, but us New Yorkers can be proud of the
fact that our city is not cloaked in a cloud of smog.
After years of being held at
bay, smog is making a
comeback in Los Angeles.
And for the first time in five
years, authorities have
issued a first stage smog
alert warning people in
some areas of unhealthy
levels of ozone in the air. -
Light With out the sun the world as we know it
would freeze. Our sun has a limited life
span, and if we don’t treat our planet
with care and respect, the sun is going
to last longer than we will.
It is now suspected that pollution in the
Earth's atmosphere, caused by
industrialization and natural phenomena
such as volcanic eruptions, may have
significantly reduced that amount of sunlight
reaching the Earth's surface. It is estimated
that this could have led to a cooling effect of
over 1 degree overt he last 40 years, which
would go some way to offsetting the effect of
global warming. Global warming is caused
primarily by increasing carbon dioxide levels
in the atmosphere that prevent heat being
radiated back out into space from the Earth's
The phenomenon of global dimming may
therefore have saved us, so far, from the
worst affects of climate change, although it
has been noticed that as pollution levels
have been reduced, particularly in Western
Europe, the affects of global dimming seem
to be reducing, leading to an accelerating
temperature rise once again. We may
therefore be in the paradoxical situation that
reducing pollution might INCREASE the
effects of global warming, leading us ever
more quickly towards catastrophe. –
What we take for granted might not be here for our children. – Al Gore
Everyone has to continue to maintain the environment to make the most use of its resources. If we don’t
take care of earth, its resources won’t be there to use in the future. What will our children think of us when
we hand them all the mistakes we made in our environment, and expect them to fix our mistakes that are
unfixable. We should stop the cycle now and give our children something to be proud of us for.
When you look at this beautiful setting, it makes you appreciate
the true beauty of the planet earth. When the environment is
properly maintained this is the outcome. The lovely colors of
the trees, the wonderful skyline, is what inspires people, and
art. It gives us hope that people will continue with efforts to
clean the environment so we can have more places beautiful
