Introduction to Chapter 1
What are the three types of pollution? If you said "land, water, and air," you are correct. These three different types of pollution are really dangerous because lots and lots of people, animals and plants get killed each year from them. However, we are also the cause of it. In this chapter, you will read about it.
Have you ever gone outside and seen something that was out of place, maybe like one of these things to your left? I'm sure you all have. What do you usually think when you see one of these items? Do you usually feel an urge to pick it up? Well, that's what happens to me. Can you do me and the environment a favor? If you said yes, then the favor is... If you see any trash on the road, sidewalk or anywhere besides the trash can, try to pick it up. Also, it may be helpful to carry around a plastic bag wherever you go. Along with that you may want to have a pair of plastic gloves. However, remember that when you pick up trash, be carful. Don't go so out of your mind to pick stuff up that you end up getting run over.
Teens Who are Helping the Environment
Introduction to Chapter 2
In this chapter, I will be telling you about some teens who are very, very, very, passionate about helping the environment and will do anything to make the world a better place.
Josiah Utsch and Ridgely Kelly
Two boys Josiah Utsch and Ridgely Kelly are both twelve-years-old. They are also very passionate about water pollution. What they are doing is helping a sea creature called the chambered nautilus, that is hunted for its shell. In 2012, the TFK (Time for Kids) heard about the efforts they had been making and wrote an article on them. The boys raised over $9,000 and gave the money to Peter Ward. Peter was very thankful for the money and invited the boys to go along, which they did. After the trip, Ridgely said, "We got significant data.”
Clay is now seventeen, but when he was eleven, he became very worried about the environment since he was always outside either rock climbing, fishing or playing around, so he decided to do something about it by starting a crusade. If you don’t know what a crusade, it is a campaign concerning a social, political, or religious issue. Now at seventeen, he has almost fifty grants, and his bank account is flooding (not literally). From those grants, he has $180,000. While he was a senior in high school, Clay helped pass a state law that lets Ohio elementary students get taught about wetlands and the state's symbols.
