EARTH DAY: Facing the factsThree environmental issues America faces todayGlobal warming and climate change- These issues are connected to the CO2 increasing in our atmosphere. The Earth gets warmer by something called the greenhouse effect. But sadly due to increasing greenhouse gases, the Earth is getting warmer day by day. This has resulted in the melting of glaciers causing increasing water level. If temperatures keep increasing so fast, the land will be swallowed be water. Pollution- There are various types of environmental pollution but they all are more harmful than youd ever imagine. Air pollution is done by putting harmful gases in our atmosphere, which can result in global warming. Water pollution on the other hand is dumping waste into water which can seriously be harmful to are nature and wildlife. Soil pollution is dumping waste in our soil which causes it to degrade. Waste- The world has progressed significantly over the years but with progression comes wasted and not useful things. This issue has topped the list in places everywhere. Many industries that have waste dont dump them properly which mostly results in pollution of our soil and water. This may also include radioactive waste, as well.

EARTH DAY: The Most ImportantI feel like the most important issue for us to address and fix is Air pollution. Air pollution causes Global warming which is extremely harmful to us and our environment. Many people dont realize how harmful this actually is. Because of Global warming our glaciers are melting and fast! Glaciers melting leads to higher sea level, and due to higher sea level are land will be devoured. Amazing places like New York City are being greatly effected by this. So, please, please help and realize how dangerous this actually is. Because you never know when its to late

Something's you can do include, dont use your car as much, use less electricity, turn off the faucet when not in use, eat less meat, and way more! Most people dont think that what they do will help but it can! Especially if you just spread the word! And if you ever feel discouraged, just remember this, the smallest things make the biggest impact
