Taking Care of the Environment The Current population of the United States is 311 million people. Consequently, the current world population is at 7 billion and counting. We’ve been hearing a lot about the car industry and the President’s affairs with GM but we should stop to think about the bigger picture for a moment---cars are just a single part of a much larger Earth. This Earth, one that we take for granted every day, has provided us with the necessities of life for ne...

Everyone has a basic right to live without any form of fear and more especially our children. I believe violating this basic human right is a great disgrace to our society and an indication of how really twisted some people's minds have become. I am raising this issue, having been quite disturbed by the recent spade of abuse and murders done on children in South African townships. In one incident two girls were found to have been raped and murdered, when in another the children are...

The amount is equivalen...

Over the years there has been a rapid increase in global temperatures, excessive rainfall and high level of evaporation all around the world.

It was signed by 186 countries in 200...

There are many poor, sick, underprivileged people in the world. Of course, all of us can say that we knew that. We can say that we saw it on the news one day or that our history teacher was discussing some vague issue in some ambiguous manner with us; but what are we doing about it? Poverty and suffering have a very obvious correlation that we can link with a slew of statistics and data. However, I'm not here to give you that litany of things. I'm here to do and help you do what...
