Conquering The Problem of Greenhouse Gases October 11, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — jenniferlyn @ 6:01 pm

Greenhouse gases have been a controversial issue for a long time, as well as what we should do about the rising problem of depleting ozone.  Greenhouse gases are parts of the atmosphere that contribute to the greenhouse effect. The natural component of the greenhouse effect is necessary for Earth to be habitable. Some greenhouse gases occur naturally in the atmosphere, while others result from human activities such as burning of fossil fuels. Greenhouse gases include water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone. CFCs are greenhouse gases that are regulated by the Montreal Protocol, which was motivated by CFCs’ contribution to ozone depletion rather than by their contribution to global warming. Ozone depletion plays only a small part in greenhouse warming. 

I believe that we need to find a solution to the problem of greenhouse gases very quickly, because at the rate that the levels of these gases are increasing in our atmosphere our earth will soon be almost uninhabitable.  With the increase in greenhouse gases we are slowly killing our rainforests and animals.  Greenhouse gases are also causing global warming and global warming leads to many problems.  With increasing emissions coming from the extra burning of fossil fuels we are contributing more and more to the problem of greenhouse gases.  I think we need to find other energy and fuel sources to try to slow down, if not stop the problem of greenhouse gases and global warming.


Are Women Really Happy?? October 4, 2007

Women seem to be less happy now days because they are trying to juggle work and home life at the same time.  They have less time to do fun things that would help them be happy.   Along with women in the workforce, girls in high school and college seem to be less happy even though they are achieving more than ever before.  They are getting far better education then before.  Girls in school put a lot of pressure on themselves to do well.  They feel that they need to do well in school to get to the same place as men in the world.  Women seem to think that if they want to succeed they must work so hard to a point that they are no longer enjoying the things they are doing in life.  Girls are putting so much pressure on themselves to do well that they aren’t as happy as they should be with all the new things they are achieving. 

            I agree with the people who say that girls put a lot of pressure on themselves to do well.  I know that a lot of the time I put tons of pressure on myself to achieve what I think others expect of me.  I feel that if I do poorly I am disappointing people who know that I can do better.  I find that sometimes I put pressure on myself to do well even in things that I know I can achieve with out putting so much pressure on myself.  When I am at work I always think that I have to do my best and I don’t like it when I mess up.  It makes me feel bad.  I feel that I am letting people down when I mess up and they have to cover for me or help me.  I am not the type of person who really likes to ask for help from others.  I feel slightly uncomfortable when I have to ask people to help me.
