The New Year has just started! James is so excited to come back to school and see his favorite friends again after the New Year. It is the morning of the first day back, and James has decided to put on his favorite outfit, his new backpack, and his new shoes from Christmas! He even decided to ride the bus to school, since he wanted to see his friends again. He gets right to his regular seat and then realizes something, everyone is covered up in a mask! “I guess school has changed…it’s not like last year,” he thought…
Honestly, I think 2021 has been a pretty great year! It has been full of great experiences, memories, friendships and a lot more exciting things. Even though there have been some downsides and it has been rough, we have all worked together for as much support as possible. If I could have one wish for 2021, it would most likely be to stop the Corona-virus. As much as I would like other things, the virus has really hurt and affected so many people and I wouldn’t want to wish that on anybody. Hopefully 2022 is a little different and things return to “normal”!
How does your travel affect our planet? I usually drive by car to close places. Since there are many cars, they really do affect the planet by how much gas they use! There are about 1.4bil cars as of 2021, which is a ton of gasoline that is limited and releasing the smoke from your car is as bad as the gasoline. Although there are different types of cars that take less gas because of mileage, they still produce some sort of amount. Next time you drive, think about what you’re doing and how it could be affecting us!

This image makes me feel upset about our Earth. As you can see, all the smoke is causing a lot of pollution into the sky from the factory. Even though we most likely need factories like these, this really does harm our world! Say you’re a bird that’s trying to live inside these circumstances, since there’s a ton of pollution in the air, that slowly kills them breathing in the smoke constantly! Speaking of that, a fact to go with that statement is that 1-2 million birds die from air pollution each year. That’s how I feel about this image.
Have you ever been afraid of climate change? Even though some industries don’t make it seem like that big of a deal, it really could be urgent. For example, only nine percent of plastic is recycled, which hurts our oceans, and our planet overall since we also produce 300 million tons of plastic each year! All of this plastic is a huge red flag to everybody, and people around the world need to start helping out. Who knows, we may have to evacuate somewhere new!
