    • Parker,
      This is a very thought-provoking topic. I liked how you brought in different aspects of what could be contributing to the wildfires and showed how each of them are worsened by climate change, such as the beetles and California’s infamous drought. Also, like you mentioned, California has one of the highest state taxes, and lots of taxpayer money is being used to fight these intense fires that could be used elsewhere, such as towards improving education or poverty. Clearly these fires are detrimental to California in ways we cannot see, and it would be interesting to see your take on these other elements. I found this article discussing how drought, paired with high temperatures brought about by humans (which ties into your argument about climate change), worsened the fires: https://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/western-wildfires/drought-heat-worsened-humans-help-fuel-california-fires-n809571
      Nice work!

    • hi there! I agree with your thinking that technology has made our generation lazier. Yes there are so many pros to the recent advances in technology, but it also has hurt society. I think that nowadays, childhood is very different than what it used to be like. I see kids being almost addicted to their phones, instead of going outside and running around with their friends. Another side affect I think is that our generation has a shorter attention span. And I would say this is due to technology. I enjoyed reading about your thoughts, and I agree completely with you.

    • I agree with that fact that technology is making us lazier.I thinl because technolgy has become advanced many people depend so much on it.

    • That’s great, I like your article . You argue that technology that will makes human be lazy, because the technology is like a drug holding you go a scare place.

    • Dear Parker,

      Your essay was outstanding, Brodie. I like how you talk about Draymond Green and how he thinks he’s the best player on the Golden State Warriors. In reality, he’s not a very good player and has no offensive skills.

      Sincerely,Fredo

    • Dear Parker,
      Your essay was very interesting, and I liked the way you described Draymond Green. That’s true when he first started he wasn’t that good he improve a lot he is now a two time nba champion for the Golden state Warriors. I was like that to I started from the bottom and I’m here where I am right now I improve a lot now when I play in teams for basketball I do better and I make more points than what I usually used to make.

    • Dear Parker,
      I am interested in your post because i too have been wondering if there is a link between global warming and natural disasters. Global warming is a very important issue and I am appalled that people do not take it seriously. I wonder if it is too late to do something about our habits and how they affect our environment. I sure hope not, but anyway thank you for sharing about this topic I hope to read more from you soon.

    • Parker,
      I am very much interested in this topic. Global warming is a real thing and we need to realize the effects its causing on our planet. I agree that “With the increase of CO2 in the atmosphere it is trapping the sun’s heat thus heating up Earth.” This cause of global warming makes it hard on the planet, increases dangers of climate change and future changes in climate.

    • Parker,
      I really connect to your topic. I too have been wondering if there is a link between climate change and these nonstop horrid natural disasters that seem to be plaguing the earth as of late. It’s appalling how many people don’t believe that climate change is real! We can’t change anything until there is a concerted effort around the world. Do you think that’s even possible to accomplish?
      Thank you for sharing your topic!
