6th Grade Global Warming Request

How can we fix global warming?

In Humanities this year in Grade 6 we are learning about the problem of global warming. Global Warming is a big problem on our Earth. It is effecting glaciers and the landscape. If global warming continues, parts of our Earth will be underwater and maps will have to be redrawn (Inconvenient Truth). Some people do not think of global warming as a problem, but it is. There are things that we can do to help limit global warming. Raising awareness is a first step, but there are many other things we can do. Please try to do some to help us limit global warming.

Here is what you can do:

  • take shorter showers
  • use the car as little as possible
  • use the computer less
  • fit a long lasting light bulb and save about 70kg of CO2 a year
  • recycle more
  • check tyres (make sure they are blown up well)
  • turn things off – including lights
  • use less hot water/less water. For example turn the water off when the brushing your teeth
  • avoid products with lots of packaging
  • plant a tree
  • spread the word
