The winter storm of 2010 was a very big problem. People were unable to leave their homes and streets due to the large amount of snowfall that came down the day before Christmas. Honestly I believe there is no way this was caused by global warming, it does not connect. Global warming has to do
with melting, for example, the ice in Alaska melting. Now how could global warming (melting, warming) cause snow. A heat source cannot cause cold
In addition, I feel that the storm would not have been as much of
a problem if the city of New York and the rest of the tri-state area took better precautions. The blizzard was about two feet including the continuous
evening snow showers. Mayor Bloomberg did not send out trucks till three hours into the storm. He did not even send a lot. Only 4 trucks went through each block, street, and highway each hour. That is stupid. The craziest part, after everybody is mad at him for making such a bad call, he calls a state of emergency for the next snowfall. There were trucks zooming through streets
almost every 10 to 15 minutes. We did not even get a foot of snow that time. In Conclusion, I believe that although the blizzard was big it could have been dealt with.
I love our planet earth and I do not want to take a chance of
letting it get hurt; so every day I go green. When I leave my house in the morning I recycle; on the weekends I work in a community garden; as Journey for Change ambassadors, we are always doing community
service. I feel I do a lot to help planet earth, but it’s never enough and
people need to understand that. I don’t want to just clean up Brooklyn
or New York, I want to clean the world (with help of course!) because
I feel I should go as far as I can because doing good, in the end will not only benefit the cause, but you too.
