  • It is great to see other teens watching out for the environment. I agree that clean energy does not have to come at as a cost of economy.

    What are we to do?

    In what way can we make the world better? Such an open-ended question to ask, I know, but it is still something that should be addressed in this day and age. There are many things that are simply put,...

    • I like this, Diego. I think what you said about the current state of the earth’s environment is right. Human’s actions have caused serious and irreversible damage to the natural ecosystem of the world. And these changes in the environment will also do great harm to human beings. I think you will like this article: https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2018/01/it-s-time-to-bring-our-planet-back-from-the-brink-together-now/
      But I think it’s probably inappropriate to stop fishing in the sea at one time. Because the natural environment has a self-healing function, I think we can selectively and controllably fish the sea. Because it’s not going to damage the environment and it’s not going to put a lot of people out of work and put the global economy in trouble.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because your point is very interesting and appealing to me. And your essay clearly expresses your ideas.

    • Very interesting, Diego. I agree with what you have said about while there is little way for us to reverse the effects of climate change, we should still help to slow the rate of harm done to the earth. It makes me wonder, like you, “in what way can we make the world better” with so much damage done to the Earth already? I am currently taking AP Environmental Science right now. The class educates me on the environment and how humans interact with it, and it brings up essential questions and solutions you have written about as well. I also liked how you connected world hunger to environmental issues. I think they go hand-in-hand with making the world a better place. I hope to read more from you soon as I find your point of view on this topic similar to my own. I like to see other people thinking the same things I am about the state of the world as it gives me hope that maybe the future has the ability to change.
