“Baby it’s cold outside!”
We take too much of everything. It’s as simple as that, everything that the Earth has provided for us is being overused and now is when it’s coming back to haunt us. The human race has burned the Earth’s supply of fossil fuels almost to the point of none being left. We are now facing what is commonly known as Global Warming. Fossil fuels that burn cause pollution, and pollution breaks down our shield, the atmosphere. As the atmosphere’s protection diminishes, we become more and more defenceless. The Sun’s rays are heating the Earth, and the hotter and hotter it gets the more everything melts. Ellesmere Island is a very cold place with lots of snow and ice which is now being melted by the sun. Many animals that are now adapted to the cold temperatures are at risk of dying. The animals that use ice for hunting or mating will no longer be able to do so. Animals like seals won’t have any place to rest after catching their fish and even with their amazing swimming will no longer be able to rest and could potentially drown. It’s not their fault that glaciers are melting. It’s ours. We are killing our own wildlife because we take too much.
Do you really want to see these guys to die?
