This is My report on 'what can we do to change our future life on earth?' I did last year with my inquiry group.
What can we do to change our
Future life on earth?
future is depending on us human beings, but we are not seeing the damage that
is happening, we can change this. A little thing can make a big difference to
our future life on planet earth.
Cars are a big
problem that’s harming the earth. We should stop using cars that don’t carry
many people and start using public transport more often sure they use a little more
petrol but they carry more people then a small family car. If you take a car to
work why not try riding a bike, run\walk, car pool or even take a hydrogen car.
A hydrogen car does not release any green house gases-just water; some cars are
already run on hydrogen and aren’t polluting the air. But however making the
hydrogen uses electricity. A hydrogen-powered car could be a solution to
Some people treat countryside as a dump, leaving your
junk in public places is known as fly tipping. Mattresses, tires and bottles
are often dumped in public places and countryside. Litter is also harming sea
creatures, 60% of all seabird species, have thought to have plastic in their
gut, having mistaken floating plastic for prey. Fishing weights sometimes have
lead and this can poison water birds, such as swans. At the moment there is
270,000 tons of plastic pollution in the worlds oceans today. The most
effective way to stop plastic pollution in our oceans is to make sure it never
reaches the water at all in the first place.
PLANT A TREE:
Planting a tree
is a easy and sustainable way to positively treat the environment. We need
trees more then ever!
HERES HOW TREES CAN HELP:
. Trees improve air quality, by producing oxygen
. They provide shelter for wildlife, such as birds,
treeanimals and bugs.
. Landscapes with trees help us relax, lower heart rates
and reduce stress.
Some people choose
to make the right decisions about treating trees and forests, but some don’t
know how damaging deforestation is to planet earth. Scientist have found that
deforestation-the cutting and burning of trees – is a major cause in global
warming. Global warming occurs when green house gases collect in the earth’s
atmosphere. They let heat from the sun on, but as it bounces back, it gets
trapped close to the earth making the planet heat up.
REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE:
Most of us buy more then we need, we want the newest toys
clothes and cars even though we may not need them this is called consumerism.
Recycling materials greatly reduces the amount of energy needed to make new
Give old clothes, books, toys and furniture to a charity
shop or sell them at a car boot sale.
There is more then
one type of pollution, such as land pollution, air pollution and water
pollution. Pollution can harm our health; it makes it harder to breathe,
worsening illnesses, such as asthma. Smog is a mixture of smoke from factories,
motor vehicles and fog it then collects over some cities. Pollution is a big
boulder in the way of a better future, so we need to get past pollution and
make our future life on earth a better place. Weed killers and insect sprays
kill unwanted plants and bugs in our gardens and on farms, but what else can
they kill!! Because weed killers and insect sprays are poisonous they also kill
wildlife. Big companies need to cut down the pollution they produce. There are
laws to ban them dumping toxic chemicals and to limit dangerous waste gases.
But they’re not yet tough enough to make a difference; pressure groups such as
green peace are fighting for stronger laws
In many parts of the world people struggle
for water, some walk miles for a bucket or two of water. The world is using too
much water. As the population
grows so does the need for water. In some dry
countries, such as Kuwait, have factories called
Desalination plants. They take the salt out of
Seawater and make it fit to drink
One way to save water is to turn off the
shower when washing yourself, then turn it back on when rinsing.
2.Turn off tap when you’ve wet your
There is no need to keep the tap running
whilebrushing your teeth.
use your toilet as a ash tray or a waste
Every time you flush a cigarette butt,
facial tissue or other small bits of trash, five to seven gallons of water is
Now you’ve seen these harming problems that are already
effecting earth now maybe you’ll want to start taking action or if you think
your already on track go and encourage others. If you contribute now we will
head towards a better and longer future life on planet earth
This video I found I watched last year for my old inquiry as well as the other video I posted ('dear future sorry'). This girl explains a kids point of view of how adults treat our planet and tells the adults they should care for their planet for future generations.

On Friday 4th march I and 4 other berkley students competed in the burgess trophy regatta.
Overall berkley came 3rd Hillcrest high coming first and Cambridge high 2nd. The first race I took part in I came 7th out of 10 optimists in the second race I finished 9th out of 10 optimist in my last race I came 6th. It was a fun day in the end, berkley did a great job.
Today's science was extraordinary we dissected a sheep heart it was gooey, squishy and bloody we discovered the tubes which connect to the lungs inside the tube was a little flap that only lets blood go out not in. some parts of the dissection was disgusting but some were really cool I put my finger in the tube that connects to the lungs.
The avatar I created represents me by the colour of my hair (red) , and I am usually found in shorts and t-shirts, the netball in the picture represents me because I enjoy all sports but mostly netball, the background illustrates my love for art and colours.
