Let’s Save the World!

I was looking at the weather forecast recently, as I usually do. The high for this Friday is 49°F (9°C)! That’s sweater weather in the middle of January in Michigan!

It’s ridiculous!

I don’t know if the warm weather recently is a result of global warming, but because of it, I have been thinking about global warming more than usual lately.

Carbon dioxide is a major contributing factor to rising temperatures. (This website discusses the science-y stuff way better than I could, so check it out.)

I don’t know if you’ve heard of it, but there’s this thing called a “tree”, and you know what it does? It takes carbon dioxide and converts it into oxygen for FREE.

So why don’t you guys plant a tree this spring? You’ll be saving the Earth! You’ll be a hero! Think about it. Doesn’t that sound appealing?

You could force everyone to call you (insert name here) the Hero.

And while you’re at it, you could plant some flowers to help the bees in your life.

Or you could recycle.

 

So, readers, please use the Contact page to send me a picture of you planting a tree or a garden and I’ll make a collage of all the pictures I get around April.

 

And please talk about climate change and planting trees on your blog or pester your real-life friends. I think together we could save the world!

  1. my kids play outside most days. it’s sunny nd warm, except for a a day or two during the week.
    some might say that’s good, but if you take a look around the news you’ll find that virus break outs are getting out of control, hospitals are packed full and people are dying left and and right.
    it’s scary actually, to know how much we humans have destroyed, how little we care to actually do something about it. most think, oh, leave it for the experts to fix.

    1. Global warming has a ton of horrifying effects. I think the most frightening is extreme weather, like hurricanes and things, because it’s the weather, there’s nothing you can do to stop it.
      And as climate change gets worse and worse, it’ll be harder to “fix it”, so people have to do something now before it’s too late.
      But trees absorb the carbon that’s doing the harm, and if a ton of people planted a few trees each, then it’d surely make a difference.
