*Act now!Earth is sick* 2000 years of human existence. 2000 years of danger. 2000 years of Carbon Emission. 2000 years of pollution.

Act now!Earth is sick.

Earth is 4.5 Million years old and we humans exists for 2000 years now, but look what we have done to earth. Our one and only planet, the only planet in which we can live,the greatest gift God has given us and yet what are we doing? We are ruining Earth's beauty. Forty years after the first Earth day was celebrated our planet is now in greater peril.The greatest foe we are facing is Climate Change. Our climate changes, the season changes,everything changes, imagine this here in the Philippines we are in suffering El Nino and yet in other part of the country it is raining, is that coincidence? An answer to our prayer? A sign from God?Or is it just a mere effect of the Climate Change? I think you know the answer to this very simple question.

*Act now!Earth is sick*

Climate Change is defined in Wikipedia as a change in the statistical distribution of weather over periods of time that range from decades to millions of years. It can be a change in the average weather or a change in the distribution of weather events around an average (for example, greater or fewer extreme weather events). Climate change may be limited to a specific region, or may occur across the whole Earth. Global Warming is the increase in the average temperature of Earth's near-surface air and oceans since the mid-20th century and its projected continuation. Global surface temperature increased 0.74 ± 0.18 °C (1.33 ± 0.32 °F) between the start and the end of the 20th century

*Act now!Earth is sick*

It looks like you are not lost anymore you already know the definitions of Climate change and Global warming. Maybe you are now saying to your self, \"Well I don't care, we are all going to die sooner or later, and we might not witness the destruction of earth, so it is okay to smoke wherever and whenever I want , it is okay to waste my papers,It is okay to throw my candy wrappers in the river and it is okay to surf the net while watching the TV, listening to radio, and playing PSP at the same time\", all I can say is WHAT THE??? You don't have any care in your environment?

*Act now!Earth is sick*

So as a youth what can we do??I'll give you the 3R.

REUSE is to use an item more than once. Reuse things that helps us everyday in our life.

REDUCE to diminish or bring down the use of one things. Reduce use of plastics! Reduce emission of Carbon! There is a saying \"don't run just walk\" well I want it this way \"Don't trike(tricycle) just walk\" See there are a lot of things we can do to help mother Earth. Reduce the use of energy. Conserve energy and Water.

RECYCLE processing used materials into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from landfilling) by reducing the need for \"conventional\" waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emissions as compared to virgin production.This is self explanatory I think, but I had given you the definition.

*Act now!Earth is sick*

Recycle if not you,WHO??Reduce if not you, WHO?? Reuse if not you,, WHO?? Let us care for our own planet, let us show God how deserving we are for giving us earth.Let us ACT NOW!!EARTH IS SICK!!! If not now, when??Tomorrow??Tomorrow, when the iceberg in Arctic and Atlantic is gone??When the climate is not anymore normal?? I don't think it is normal these days!!! Again I am reminding you act now!!!Stand up, unplug your appliances!
