What about sunrise What about rain What about all the things Than you said we were to gain… What about killing fields Is there a time What about all the things That you said was yours and mine… Did you ever stop to notice All the blood we’ve shed before Did you ever stop to notice The crying Earth, the weeping shores? Aaaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaaaah What have we done to the world Look what we’ve done What about all the peace That you pledge your only son… What about flowering fields Is there a time What about all the dreams That you said was yours and mine… Did you ever stop to notice All the children died from war Did you ever stop to notice The crying Earth ,the weeping shores? Aaaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaaah I used to dream I used to glance beyond the stars Now I don’t know where we are Although I know we’ve drifted far Aaaaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaah
World Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Solar power for cars is one of the most promising alternatives being developed. Though still in its infancy stages, the technology made a major advancement recently when a completely solar-powered car made a successful journey around the world. Swiss teacher and adventurer Louis Palmer built his own car that runs completely off of solar power. It can go as fast as 55mph and can travel 185 miles on a full battery. Palmer arrived at the U.N. Climate Conference this past week after spending the past 17 months traveling through 38 countries. Palmer’s journey represents the first solar-powered car to successfully drive around the world. Palmer undertook this mission to demonstrate to the conference and to the world as a whole that it is possible to cut fuel-related carbon emissions by 100%.
We never know the worth of water till the well is dry. Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money? Earth is not a gift from our parents; it’s a loan from our children. Man shapes himself through decision that shapes his environment. It's amazing how people can get so excited about a rocket to the moon and not give a damn about smog, oil leaks and devastation of the environment with pesticides, hunger and disease. When the poor share some of the power that the affluent now monopolize, we will give a damn. Cesar E. Chavez (1927-1993) Green revolution The best solution To arrest pollution
We are all puppets to cheer on this Earth, While joy and sorrow always come since our birth! Daylights follow dusk towards the gloomy nights, And bring us such a joy to renew our sights! Fresh air and clean water nourish our souls, Without them, we suffer, and pay the heavy tolls! To put a stop to these tolls, EPA was formed - Over two decades ago, and brains were stormed! For protection of nature, EPA took the vow - To offer simple tips, let me tell them now! Banning pesticides and lead in gasoline - Made the giant move to make the nature clean! Recycling became a daily household chore To reduce costs and protect the seashore! Reduction of emissions created the flow - Of cleaner air, and polluters took a blow! Dumping of sewage into lakes and streams Was banned to prevent leery public screams! Pollution of water became a salient issue to protect human health and aquatic tissue!
The situation has changed over twenty-five years, And laws are in place to remove our fears! Now an annual event hangs around us - To recognize Earth Day without any fuss! So let's all sing Save the Earth songs, And do things right to hear loud gongs! Now, always think "Earth Is In Your Hands", Here at home or in foreign lands! So let us follow these few simple roles, To avoid the agonies of all future souls! Conserve the water as much as you can, While you are bathing or washing the van! Recycle and prevent pollution at the source, While care should be motive and the hidden force! Plant the trees in open private space, To create the shade and cool your face! Try the carpool with a friend, or share a ride - To control the air and emission ebb tide! Dispose off pesticides in a real safe manner, And label before you bury 'em under a banner! Organize all efforts to discard the waste; EPA may be called to quench any quest! (EPA – Environmental Protection Agency in the USA)
Invite friends to attend the Earth Day Acts, And define each role to convey all facts ! Reward the guys for a job well done - To share the benefits and all the fun ! Well, now you really know what you have to do - And celebrate "Earth Day" without further woo !!!
Краткое описание документа:
Проблемы защиты окружающей среды, вероятно, являются самыми важными проблемами современного мира. Вот почему многие уроки школьной программы посвящены этой теме. В данной презентации представлены интересные материалы и факты к уроку проводимому в 11 классах GO GREEN or Technology and Progress .
Такой урок целесообразно проводить в форме конференции. Класс делится на 2 команды: Environmentalists and Technical Promoters. К уроку учащиеся подготавливают цитаты, стихи, интересные факты для работы своих команд. Девиз защитников окружающей среды - GO GREEN, LIVE GREEN. Девиз сторонников прогресса- LONG LIVE the PROGRESS. В ходе дебатов учащиеся приходят к мнению что прогресс должен осуществляться с учетом сохранения нашей экологии.
