We Don't Pay Enough Attention to...

By JDaddi, Brooklyn, NY

The world is coming to an end, is what I first thought when I read Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth. I remember looking at old photographs of glaciers and comparing them to recent pictures and seeing how they’ve melted, and I realized how ignorant I was of global warming. I read about landfills and saw pictures of the Earth’s diminishing habitats; I thought to myself, what happened to the bright, beautiful Earth I recall being raised on? Why is there so much litter covering the ground and so much pollution in the air? What is going to happen to all of the majestic animals in our world? As I read further into the book, I learned that all of us are to blame for Earth’s destruction; with our polluting cars, litter, and over developed land, I realized that we are heading into the direction of a lifeless, dark future.
