The Environment Part One
Section D Planet Earth 3 questions 6 marks 9 marks 5 marks
Why should we care what happens to the earth?
We should care because our grandparents left us this earth to enjoy. How will we leave it for the next generation? That is an interesting question? There is doubt that it will be left with any sustainability. We have polluted, it and with deforestation left an environment that in some places be left for a desert. Some might face starvation. Some face losing their homes to rising seas. Some face getting more skin cancer. Many face telling their children about animals that would then be extinct. Imagine a world with out elephants and tigers and polar bears. And when your children ask what happened to all these creatures you will say they died or were hunted out because man just did not care.
The world is a beautiful place. It is full of natural resources.

Cutting down trees will effect the planet. The loss of the oxygen.
Here you can see the suffering. The trees being cut down help influence climate change. Trees cut down to make charcoal can cause big problems.
