Global Warming | Climate Change - Students' Role in Saving Our Nature

What's your stand about Global Warming or Climate Change? Here in Scolex Portal, i will also publish articles related to our task as individual in order we can help save our planet. The title of this oratorical piece that i wrote during the Foundation Day Celebration(2009) of Manay NHS is: Students' Role in Saving Our Nature. 

Here we go!
global warming | climate change

I stand before you today with the courage in informing you about very important facts about our Mother Nature.

STOP!.......... LOOK!........... and LISTEN!

STOP! And let your senses work. Some people in different parts of our country or in the whole world in general are suffering from the “Wrath of Nature”. Floods, frequent tropical storms, landslides and the exaggerated greenhouse effect --- the Global Warming.

LOOK! Our used to be “Virgin Forests” have been penetrated by illegal loggers. Our used to be “Crystal Clear Water” has been turned into blackish and stench liquid. Smog or the combination of smoke and fog has been dominating the atmosphere of some highly industrialized cities around the world.

Here in our locality we can also observe the so-called Nature’s Revenge. An hour of continuous raining will flood our rivers or almost all low lying areas including our school. The temperature of the 7:00 o’clock sunlight is no longer healthy for our skin. It BURNS!

And now, LISTEN!

The “Climate Change” we are currently experiencing at the moment is the result of the negligence of men, of greed, and lust of power.

As students--- the younger generation, labeled as the Hope of Our Motherland, we play the great role in saving and preserving our nature from total destruction or saving the whole planet from the impending “Third Extinction”.

Let us start within ourselves. Let’s be vigilant against illegal loggers and watchful against ozone layer-depleting practices. Tree planting activities or reforestation will be effective if we put our heart in that particular activity. If we plant, we must see to it that it will grow. The trees are our fortress against nature-related calamities.

In our home or even in school, let us be a model for the rest of the students --- A model of a nature-lover citizen. We will inform our co-students that burning plastics will augment the global warming and contribute to air pollution. Let us practice proper waste disposal by separating the biodegradable from non-biodegradable garbage. Let us learn to value all the things GOD has given us. The trees, air, water, and the soil. They are important parts of our living planet.

By doing these simple things, we are reminded of the famous phrase during the first human landing on the moon:

“A small step for a man, a GIANT leap for mankind”.

This oratorical piece was composed by me as an entry to our school's contest. I may not be a good essay writer but i tried my best so that i can also express what i feel about the issue on Global Warming or Climate Change. We did not win the contest but at least my first year student tried very hard to deliver it nicely to the audience.
