global warming

Grade: 7 | Year: 2014 Published On: 2014-02-23

Think about a time when your car was parked in the middle of a parking lot, in the middle of the day. The minute you opened the car door, you must have felt currents of hot air blowing past you. The moment you sat down, you might have felt as if your car was burning the heat! This is a small, yet effective example of a process called the GREENHOUSE EFFECT. This effect involves a certain body of matter, be it a car, or a green house in which plants are grown, or the earth itself GRIPPING heat or radiation from another body, in our case – the sun. In case of the car, the glass enables the assimilation of the heat, and traps the heat inside, and does not let it out. Similarly, the earth's atmosphere contains certain gases called GREENHOUSE GASES such as Carbon Dioxide or water vapor or Ozone or Methane, which absorb the radiations we receive from the sun, and trap the heat from it inside. In other words, our atmosphere, which contains the green house gases acts like a blanket; it absorbs heat from the sun, and prevents the heat inside from going away from the earth's surface. The more greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, the more the heat gets trapped, the more the temperature rises. This phenomenon of increase in the average temperature of the Earth's near-surface air and oceans is called GLOBAL WARMING.

Lets make a change

Grade: 9 | Year: 2011 Published On: 2014-01-24

The pictures of a child's bony belly or of a mother searching garbage trying to find food are ones that have long haunted us and that must be erased immediately. Hunger and malnutrition affect a large majority of the people in the world and many die every day from these awful causes that fortunately can be prevented. It is time not to just speak out against world hunger but to do something about it. Having witnessed the horrors of poverty and hunger, I feel compelled to help out the ones in need and to spread the message of giving so that one day we will see hunger and poverty as a thing of the past, as just a bad memory.
