Green IT and Global Warming
By Corey Elitzer
Why Is Going Green Important?
Another reason that may go unnoticed is using pesticides. According to Sally-Painter ( http://greenliving.lovetoknow.com/Why_Is_it_Important_to_Go_Green) using pesticides can affect human health via foods such as fruits&veggies, seafood, and others. When the pesticide seeps through the food, and we consume it, we are in turn consuming the pesticide.
Different Ways You Can Go Green!
Green School Tips
As a school, you can do a 'Going Green' walk, that promotes a healthy lifestyle and encourages, maybe even obligates people to think about the effects they are causing to their environment.
The third thing we can do as a school, is go paperless. Instead of letters that must be sent home, e-mail blast them. Other schoolwork can all be done via technology, and trust me; the 10 page Calculus packets can go away! It will still be there, but maybe even the kids won't think it is that long anymore, because lets face it; Who wants a big bulky packet in their book bag anymore?!
Global warming is basically the rise in the average temperature. This is caused by an increase in C02 levels. An increase in C02 levels are caused by mainly us, as we increase in population, we are in turn increasing C02 levels. Another main reason with an increase of C02 is the burning of fossil fuels. Some fossil fuels include coal, oil, and natural gas for industry. These are used for transportation, heating our homes, and generating electricity.
The temperature is more of the Earth's atmosphere and oceans. Since the 1900's, Earth's temperature is only rising. It is rising faster than ever, which is an epidemic because of several reasons. Just look at the pictures below, these are the effects of global warming.
