Day 5

A major problem today is global warming, this is the process when the polar ice caps of the world are melting due to the thinning and destruction of the ozone layer. Temperature of the oceans are rising and causing them to expand and the oceans are rising. Winters are becoming warmer and warmer every year. The major ice sheet in Greenland is melting and the ice caps are thinning. The causes of these are from a hole formed in the ozone over the Atlantic Ocean. The cause to the hole in the ozone is people. People using fossil fuels and those converting into greenhouse gases that break down the ozone layer. We are also cutting down many trees especially in rainforests which produce helpful oxygen and carbon dioxide. People, also have the power to help prevent global warming. They can help conserve energy and fossil fuels. Electricity and ethanol powered cars are becoming more and more popular. We can plant more trees and stop from cutting down so many trees.

Day 3

1. State the problem
Drugs are becoming more and more common in the high school.

2. Give Evidence
Many people i know have gotten into drugs and it has ruined there life by making them slower in the head, or by being lazy. The school brings in drug sniffing dogs more often because of the drug problem in our school.

3. Contributing Factors
Parents aren't around there kids as much and cannot be with them at all times. Some parents do not punish their kids enough to teach them a lesson. Drugs are more common and easy to attain.

4. Solution
I believe the school should give random drug tests every year to each student. This would help prevent students from using drugs because they do not know when the tests would be. The results would be sent to a parent.

Day 1

A friend is having trouble keeping up with class. I suspect that bad study habits may be causing his grades to drop. My friend has joined many extra curricular activities and does not have much time to do homework. He does not go to bed at a reasonable time and falls asleep during class which is greatly affecting his learning abilities.
