Ever since I joined the “Roots and Shoots” club when I was in middle school, I became very interested in the environment of our planet, especially global warming in particular. I have written several papers about the issue and as doing so, I got aware of the damages humans made on Earth that could not be restored. As many countries traded forests and mountains with development and people wasted resources for more convenient and comfortable lives, 6.5 billion human beings’ home heated up more than ever over the past few years.

Just like what I mentioned above, global warming, one of the most critical issues facing the world, influences many world issues such as oceanic acidification, land and water shortages, and wildlife extinction. These problems undoubtedly will threaten human being’s survival on this planet, resulting in serious wars among the countries and its people for food and water.
Global warming is no longer a debate. There has to be actions taken to prevent further increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The floods, droughts, storms, and other natural disasters that destroyed the planet in movies may not be that far away from us. It is time to realize the negative effects global warming would have on our planet. Global warming can actually destroy our Earth with continuously rising temperature along with probable nuclear wars among nations for food and water. Either or, this problem is a very serious issue and it has to be solved at a worldwide scale no matter what happens.
