Oh my! I never knew I produced so much
carbon dioxide on Earth. I did badly in the home appliances area! To
get rid of the title of "Big Squid", we need to truly lessen our
production of carbon dioxide. Even if it's a hot summer day we
should avoid using the air conditioner and fans, and plant more
flowers, grass, and trees. This will not only make our homes more
pretty, it will also lower carbon dioxide emission. Transportation
wise, we should take public transportation and walk more, as it is
healthy and environmental. As long as everyone tries their best, we
can lower our carbon dioxide production!
After a series of greenhouse gases
calculations, I produced 68.58 kg of carbon dioxide. I'm an
environmental hero, but I still need to actively convey information
to my neighbors and friends on lowering the production of greenhouse
gases, helping to clean up dirty places in our community, planting
more green plants, and joining environmental groups reduction plans,
activities and classes. If I can do all this, I'll be more than just
a hero! I hope I can become more than just a hero! Go!
Ken: When I go to school, I will walk to lower
the amount of exhaust, and I will check the lights when I leave.
When I don't use appliances I will pull the plug, for example,
computers, TVs, and fans. When I go downstairs, I won't take the
elevator, when I go up, I'll take it only if I have to walk more
than 3 flights of stairs. As long as I can do all this I won't be a
huge squid. I know I can!
Amada: Lowering greenhouse gases is everyone's
responsibility, including mine. Our family uses too much
electricity, so if the sun is out, we won't use the humidifier and
the drier anymore! Our house use to be as cold as the South Pole in
summer, with the air conditioning as cold as possible, like a center
for penguins! Freezing! Even if it's difficult, we still need to
reduce emission, for Earth, we will!
Ben: Wow! I didn't know I was an environmental
scout! I want to be even better, and improve myself. I can: lessen
trash production, turn on the AC less, and turn off electricity when
I leave home. I will follow the policy, since it's only a little bit
of work. I hope everyone can do a little, and collectively, we can
lower the amount of greenhouse gases, so that Earth doesn't have a
Coco: I didn't know that I had made so many
mistakes, and instead of helping Earth, I was harming it! I
shouldn't have. Conserving resources in everyday life is the way to
contribute to Earth. I know now that I watch too much TV, but it was
because TV is really interesting. I even got nearsighted because of
it. Let's work together to protect Earth!
Cindy: On my prescription, it says that I'm doing
ok, but I need to keep on, and try to reduce more. I need to work
harder on home appliances, because it took up 77%, or 64.87 kg in
all. Our household's electricity usage was surprisingly high (though
it's comparatively low), so we should try to lower it. First of all
I need to learn to turn off the lights, and as long as I keep on, I
Sandy: When I saw that our family's carbon
dioxide emission was high, I was shocked. I thought, "Is it
possible?" So, we need to have a reduction plan. In the summer I'll
remind my dad about the air conditioners filter, set the temperature
to 26~26 degrees, and use environmentally protective appliances to
lower carbon dioxide emission. I hope that the emission will lower.
Let's work together, and do something for our planet.
Jack: To accomplish "Getting back a cool
planet", our whole family is joining the effort. My sister is
working the hardest to save electricity, by sacrificing her only
pleasure during the weekends - video games. Dad uses the computer
the most, and now he remembers to pull the plug afterwards, and turn
off the switch. Mom was always good at saving electricity, but she
often forgets to turn off the fan in the bathroom, wasting a lot of
electricity, so now it's my job as a son to remind her! However, the
thing that saves the most electricity in our home is the AC, we
haven't used it for almost 2 years! We can't find the plug!!!
