Global Warming

In today's society, global warming has become a hot topic of debate. Although there are some people that think there is no global warming, scientists generally feel that global warming exists. Not only does it exist, but it is found to be a problem in the future that needs to be dealt with today. Having a strong knowledge of science, I see that global warming is a future problem that needs to be dealt with today.

Although it is very unlikely that the damage done to the ozone can be reversed, the movement towards lowering emissions and pollution would help to slow the process of global warming. Also alternate fuels can be used to lower emissions. It is these types of things that could lead to the slowing down of global warming. Also, with more awareness about global warming, society can understnad what is happening to the planet and what can be done to prevent problems in the future.

There is one interesting thing i would like to add to the end of this blog. During one of my science classes in high school, there was a video we watched that stated the universe was expanding. The expansion of the universe causes a decrease in the temperature. I find this curious because although the planet is getting warmer, it has been said that Earth will become colder and colder over the years. This of course wont happen until millions of years from now due to the small effect of the expansion.

Grizzly Man

My apologies for not having this up any sooner. I ran into many porlems trying to save and finally i am able to et this online.

Before watching this movie i thought of it as a boring documentary about some guy who did something. As i watched it i realized that this guy was like anybody else. He was trying to find purpose for his life in a meaningful way. He saw a part of the world in danger and took it upon himself to not only protect the bears and foxes but to live among them. Although it is a little strange, i respect him for that. His passion for the animals was so strong for him to live with them for as long as he did.

There were a couple things that really stood out when watching the movie. The biggest thing was his personality. Whenever they began to show a clip from his life, there was no way of telling how he was going to act. He went from " I love you" to the animals to cursing out the people who apposed him to yelling for rain. His emotions were at time unpredictable. The other thing i noticed were some of the interviews. Some of the people thought he was dumb for trying to protect the animals. They acted as though he was only making things worse which was upsetting to hear. Although people disagreed with him i found to be a great person to make sacrifices that he did to help the animals.
