    • So I agree with this we should do something because I think in future all of the world will be like a big one ocean. I learned that if people don’t stop polluting air and our world all people will die. I think if people did not create cars, our world will be better than right now, but it will be difficult to live without cars.

    • Tanner,
      This is very well written article that deals with a very important issue in today’s world. I believe that us human beings are slowly killing the environment and we need to make a change in order to save the world. With the deforestation in certain parts of the world hurts the air and the ecosystem in the area. I like how you are bringing this to the attention to this issue in you article.

    • Tanner, your article is informative about the current situation regarding our environment. Right now, most first world nations are attempting to remedy this. However, this is proving incredibly difficult as we must increase the rate of our resource consumption. Areas such as the Amazon rainforest in South America are current targets for deforestation, and images depicting the carnage left behind are common. Despite the international crisis this poses to both this generation and any future generations, little work has been placed forwards to stop it. While nations in northern Europe and leading the world in recycling energy and waste, the rest of the world is still lagging behind.

    • Tanner,
      This is an interesting post. I found the statistic about the 27 soccer fields a minute very surprising that is a lot of land being ruined very quickly. I think this is a very important issue that the whole world should address before it becomes too late to do anything about climate change and it’s effects.

    • Hi Tanner,
      I was really interested in your post because I am rather passionate about water pollution. 71% of our Earth is covered in water, but the resource is dwindling. We pollute so much of our natural resources that we will use it up. Last year I read a book called “The World Without Us”. It’s all about the lasting effects we leave on the world. Here is an excerpt I thought you might find interesting for your research. http://www.worldwithoutus.com/excerpt.html
      I look forward to hearing more about this subject from you.

    • Hi Tanner, I found your post very intriguing to read. I agree that this is an ongoing issue that needs to be solved. One thing is that I wouldn’t dismiss is “global warming, overpopulation, deforestation, ocean acidification, acid rain, etc.” as something you can live with without it affecting you. Pollution is contributing to such things as global warming, ocean acidification, and acid rain. Besides that point, I liked how passionate you are about keeping the air clean. I have asthma and I can barely go up the Judge HS stairs without wheezing like crazy on our bad inversion days. Based on what you wrote, I think you I think you would like to read this article: https://ibis.health.utah.gov/indicator/complete_profile/AsthED.html. Thank you for pushing for cleaner air- today’s world needs more people with compassion like yours.

    • Hi Tanner, I like that you are passionate about air quality and how it affects our health. My students and I will be doing some experiments around the school neighborhood to measure ground-level ozone levels and particulate matter. I will use your post as a source for background research, Thanks!

      This is really interesting. I have never thought about this problem in this way. I like how you presented both the positive and negatives, because it made me think about it from both sides.

    • Tanner,
      This is a very interesting question, you really made me think about it. TV and other media sources have not explicitly answered this question, but they have given their ideas to the subject with post-apocalyptic, humans living in space instead of Earth, and many other scenarios. I hope that it doesn’t come to a point where humans have to flee Earth to survive, but rather we fix our mistakes and help heal the Earth. Our choices don’t only affect us, they affect the Earth, the animals, and the plants. If humans did disappear, I agree that animals would inhabit cities and plants would take over the buildings, slowly the Earth would start to heal itself. Maybe the ocean and sky would become clearer, the air more pure. Stars would shine unhindered by smog down upon the Earth and the ice caps would slow their melting. This is only my idea of what could happen and I loved how much your piece made me think.

    • Dear tanner
      I am fascinated about your topic “Earth after Humans” because I believe that many people have asked themselves the same questions and also most every movie or TV show have a different perspective of how the would would be after humant get extinct. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Would there be a lot more trees? Would the Great Salt Lake and other lakes become bigger? These and other questions I think about.” I think this is important because that’s what I imagine will happen and that what many movies show or predict will happen. Another sentence that I thought that was interesting was: “From this article by the Discover Magazine, they predict that bridges in New York will last for at least 100 years before the bolts are broken down..” This stood out for me because I don’t believe this because a 100 years is a long time and the bolts would rust and fall off in maybe 50 years. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because your topic is very interesting and i really want to see what happens.

    • Tanner,

      I thought the article you attached seemed familiar to me and I knew why once I saw the author. Alan Weisman turned this idea into an entire book called The World Without Us which I recently read, I’d recommend it to you if you want to see a cool breakdown of what exactly would happen in a world without humans. I think that people only see science as something that can or should be used for practical knowledge, for solving the world’s problems. But what’s the point of learning about the natural world if you don’t use it to answer big questions? I think the “earth after humans” questions is an example of what would otherwise be a philosophical question becoming scientific as humans learn to understand their world more, which is weird to think about.
