Our Sustainable Future The world we know is changing. Human civilization has had an unappalled effect on the entire world. From the amount of resources we use, to the amount of harmful chemicals we release into the atmosphere, we are greatly affecting our planet.

There are many ways to reduce greenhouse gasses that trap heat in our atmosphere. We as a human race are growing at a rate of 251 babies every minute, that’s 361,481 every day and 131,940,565 every year. Food, shelter water and energy are ever so high in demand and we will even go far enough to damage our own natural resources to sustain the new heads. Our environment
