  1. 1. GLOBAL WARMING Desmond O’Neil
  2. 2. THESIS I find that our school does not do a very good job at recycling our student’s waste. We are not really what would be called a “green” school. Although we do small things like recycle paper and some plastic, I feel that we could be much better at it. Recycling is something that affects every person on this planet, either directly or indirectly. It is important for everyone to know of the importance of reusing products and disposing of them properly.
  3. 3. PERSONAL RELEVANCE This topic touches everyone in the world. Global warming is aiding our planet’s natural cycle and making it go faster and harder. I personally just want to get the message out about global warming and help skeptical see that it is real and it is happening.
