Does Using Paper Take CO2 out of the Environment?
It seems counterintuitive that using paper takes CO2 out of the environment, however we keep cutting down trees.
16.7 million tons of carbon was sequestered in wood products and landfills, which is the permanent removal of carbon in the atmosphere. When you cut a tree down it still holds on to carbon. This is why 16.7 million tons of carbon still lies in the landfills. In total, about 61.1 million tons of carbon dioxide is floating in the atmosphere which is equivalent to the emissions of 10.7 million cars. The best solution to help keep carbon out of the environment, is to stop cutting down trees and continue planting more.
Trees are able use photosynthesis to take in water, carbon dioxide and release oxygen as a waste product. Trees will be able to naturally turn CO2 into O2 which will be beneficial to the environment because it will give more oxygen to the humans and take away some carbon in the atmosphere.
It seems counterintuitive that google is one of the most accessible sites, but it has a much more negative impact on us than we realize.
Google is accessible from anywhere in the world at any time we need it. Some people ask google for ideas about dinner, movie and food ideas. Others use google to talk and find out what’s going on in the world. Google will know what we want before we know what we want. Through our devices, google is listening to every conversation to gather information on what we want to see and hear.
Google has surveillance on us which is why they always know what option to pick when we ask a question, or always has a pop up ad on what we were talking about 2 days ago. Google has grown and become very powerful but how much is too much? We spend hours on google without us even realizing time is passing. Google has done so much research on each person and has a web of everything you researched all time.
Young people are the most active on social media platforms. They are exposing their private life and letting anyone see it. If google was the slightest bit concerned they would put restrictions on children at a young age. “If you’re not paying for it, you are the product.”
It seems counterintuitive that a mentally unstable man was able to purchase a handgun yet wasn’t able to attend school.
Guns have grown in popularity in America. There are about 85 guns per 100 people in America. That is a crazy number which will probably get bigger unfortunately. Everyday about 80 people die from guns and several are injured.
States that have less gun laws which equals more guns have a higher suicude rate and homicides than states that have strict gun laws. Children in America are 11 times more likely to die in a gun accident than in other developed countries.
To help reduce gun deaths and injuries we can limit the gun purchase for how many guns a person can buy at a time to once a month. The government can also get tougher retailers who sell guns and make it harder for traffickers to try and get an abundant amount at once. Lastly to have stricter and more in depth background checks on people before giving them the gun.
