Greta Thunberg is a lie!

We’ve all heard about the new headliner Greta Thunberg and the impact
she has made on our thoughts of climate change. The 16 year old is one
of the most influential people, campaigning for climate change. But what
exactly is her story? How has this 16 year old caught all of us into
realising what we have created, how has she already addressed the
United Nations and multiple governments around the world.
Greta was 12 when she stopped eating meat and going on airplanes, to
reduce her impact on the environment.
There is a theory going around that Greta has only became famous
because of her mother. Her mother was a singer on eurovision in 2009
coming 21st on the ladder. This created a lot of fame for herself but also
her daughter (Greta thunberg).
Many people believe that the famous speeches Greta has presented were
written by her parents. “What she says are not in her words” says the Daily
telegraph “Greta thunberg is only a headliner because of her mother”
states New york times. These are only a couple of newspapers that
believe that Greta is a lie. What are your thoughts?


Should we really skip school for our
changing climate?

Headliners have expressed lots of interest with the recent wave of “kids”
taking action for climate change, As you may have seen the so called
head of this surge of youth protest is Greta Thunberg after her speech at
the UN, in which she underlined the problems in a powerful and
emotional way. This has encouraged many young protesters to take to
the street in swarms in order to spread awareness about this epidemic
that will soon take over their future. A few months ago there was a protest
in Hyde Park, Sydney, that attracted hundred of thousands of students
all skipping school in order to protest as well as thousands of other
protests all over the world, but is this really the right way to go?

The only way to stop climate change is for everyone to take part and
reduce waste, emissions and carbon footprint. By thousands of students
and kids skipping school this creates a controversial topic for the news
creating world spread awareness that our generation cares and worries
for our future. As more and more people take part world leaders will soon
found out about this alarming epidemic and action can be taken on a
world wide scale. Skipping school is a small sacrifice for helping solve
climate change.

Overall the reasoning shows that skipping school is incredibly beneficial
for spreading awareness and taking action for our worsening climate.
With help from world leaders as well as youth representatives like Greta
our climate will definitely be on the way to being healthy and our planet
can be saved.


What have we created?

Mateo Ter meulen ortiz

With Earth and nature slowly deteriorating because our actions we must
now fix this. We can not keep livin how we are, we will run out of resources,
there will be a growth in our population were it will simply not be safe to
live anymore and the health of ourselves will be at risk.

There are countless reasons why our future will be at risk but the most
important reason is overpopulation. Research shows that by 2030 our
population will have grown at a faster rate than ever before, making it
unsafe to live. With this huge number of people we will simply run out of
resources to keep living a healthy life. What have we created?

Another major difficulty will be our healthy. As you will have realised there
are hundreds of fires and natural disasters leading to death. The hospitals
will be pouring with injured people. With little carbon in the soil it is
generating vegetables and other foods to have no nutrients and vitamins.
What have we created?

Lastly is the climate. The temperatures will rise, as will the sea levels. With
natural disasters occuring every day, nature will simply not hold itself any
longer and all we can do is blame ourselves. What have we created. What
have we created

We have created a dying planet that need our help. It needs less
population growth, healthier animals, healthier plants but most
importantly healthier people.It needs a sustainable climate and humans
that are willing to make a change. This is what we have created and now we
have to fix it.


Our busy world

Max Bommert

As the future nears our population greatens, each day our precious planet Earth is
becoming incredibly dense. Many studies show that the ratio of birth to death is
immensely unbalanced thus creating an ever rising population. Scientists have
concluded that there are 2.5 births per 1 death, at this rate over population is becoming
a worrying epidemic and it must be solved.
The Earth only has so many resources, over the past 50 years humans have been using
the Earths only resources at a wasteful and alarming rate. This means that we must
change our ways for a sustainable lifestyle. Fossil fuels power most of our lives from
cars, planes, trains and even our own house. All of this energy needed is not enough for
fossil fuels itself as it is alarmingly running out. The population uses more fossil fuels
and other resources are put into the air pollutes all living things including our food and
water. As a society we must all come together to help reduce waste and increase solar
energy or electric energy so that we can create a sustainable future for our ever
growing population.
If you walk down the street you will see a surplus of apartments, cars and rubbish
compared to back in the day. Our world has been adapting to our population growing
meaning that we are all crammed into our lives. Over crowded town means that houses
are rare so the prices for houses go up and the job industry gets ever more crowded
creating a lower employment rate as most jobs are already full. This will lower our quality
of life and it will not end well.
In Conclusion, over population can not be ignored and it’s not up to the scientists to fix
it it’s up to the people so try your bit to help.


Can We Handle Any More People
In This World?

Emalee Lopez

Over-population is an increasing problem in our society. It causes poverty and homelessness
because of loss of jobs, more traffic and pollution and an increasing amount of refugees and
migrants. A disproportionate amount of people cause Earth to become filthy, polluted and
unhygienic. It’s an alarming and frightening issue. We need a solution and fast.

As more people enter the job seeking life there will be less jobs for everyone and most likely,
robots will begin to to take over a large proportion of them. The result will be catastrophic if
nothing is done to prevent thousands of jobless people. Another problem that will eventually
occur from the decreasing amount of jobs is poverty and homelessness. The world will become
miserable with many houses having no occupants.

Traffic is another consequence of over-population. The chaos on roads and the rage will increase
rapidly. This will inflict more fights and cause many injuries. Arrival time to destinations will be
delayed because of the amount of vehicles on the road. Thousands upon thousands of vehicles
will be backed up, creating more air pollution and our atmosphere will become even more
destroyed than it already is.

The increase of refugees and migrants will have many downfalls to our planet. We’ll run out of
housing and offices and need to build more apartments. When we do so we’ll get rid of trees,
parks and all our green spaces. Air quality will decrease drastically. Losing trees means losing a
vital source of life, oxygen, without it we won't be able to breathe. Our world will become filthy and

In conclusion, over-population is causing dramatic effects to our society. There will be no more
jobs available meaning we’ll begin to live in poverty. No one will be able to look after themselves
or their families. Although it all seems like doom and gloom there is still hope. To save this
situation from happening we need to smart to as what jobs we will actually allow robots to take
because we are in control of this world, not the robots. Luckily, more people also means a need or
more jobs. We may even be able to create some new jobs. Traffic problems can be prevented if we
have more public transport, ensuring that there is less pollution and less traffic. When it comes to
more migrants and refugees we need to build smarter homes and make less inhabitable places
residency. We need to reserve green spaces. There is things we can do to save our beloved planet
from being destroyed, but we have to take action soon. Over-population is only one of the many
problems involving the future. Let's start our part now to create a more sustainable world.


Plunged into poverty; it could
happen to anyone.

Olive McKinnon

All over the world 1.3 billion people are stuck in poverty. In the future I believe that the number
of people living in poverty will rise drastically. Three key factors that will cause the amount of
people living in poverty to increase will be climate change, population growth and wealth
Climate change is already having a massive effect on the way that human beings live their
lives. Ses levels are rising and some countries are at risk of losing their entire nations.When
this happens thousands of people will be displaced and living in poverty. Climate change is
also causing more regular and severe natural disasters that are destroying homes all over the
world leaving more people homeless and in poverty.
Another factor that will increase the number of people Living in poverty is population growth.
The earth has finance face and finite resources and if population keeps increasing at its
current rate the earth will be unable to provide for us and we will start running out of scape.
The third contributor to increased poverty rates is wealth inequality. There is evidence to show
that the gap between rich and poor is continuing to grow. The top 2% wealthiest people 50%
combined. As this problem continues to get worse more and more people will have close to
nothing and end up living in poverty.

In my opinion the number of people living in poverty will have definitely increased drastically
by 2040. Climate change is destroying thousands of homes much more frequently all over the
world, we are not sustain the drain an increase in population will create and as wealth
inequality Continue to grow more and more people will be stuck living in poverty.


2040 - Movie review by Olive

Recently, our class watched the movie 2040 by Damon Gameau, it follows
the story of an Australian dad who travels the world in search of a better
future for his daughter. He is on the mission to only create solutions by
embracing the good things that we already have on our planet. I found
the movie very informative and interesting and thought it was very well
made. The movie was uplifting and inspiring and in my opinion one of the
best documentaries on this topic, we are being subjected to a lot of
negative content about climate change and this movie makes us realise
that if we act now the future will be incredible but we definitely have to
act. I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to be part of a solution
to save our planet but who doesn't want to watch another doomsday
movie on all the ways we have ruined our home.

The rising distress of bushfires

destroying Australia Emalee Lopez

Recently NSW has experienced many bushfires that are enlarging
extremely quickly. Over one million homes have been destroyed and this
matter is beginning to cause panic. The most common word used to
describe these bushfires is unprecedented. The reasoning being they are
unprecedented in size, intensity and timing. Homes, farms and livestock
are being destroyed and humans are being trapped and killed in the
toxic breath of these fires. Current Prime Minister Scott Morrison states
he has no plans to get the economy and wages moving, neither does he
have plans for the destruction our changing climate is predicted to

Quiz answers

1. What is the difference between weather and climate?
The difference between weather and climate is a measure of time.
Weather is what conditions of the atmosphere are over a short period of
time, and climate is how the atmosphere "behaves" over relatively long
periods of time.

2. What is the difference between global warming and climate change?
“Global warming” refers to the rise in global temperatures due mainly to
the increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
“Climate change” refers to the increasing changes in the measures of
climate over a long period of time – including precipitation,
temperature, and wind patterns.
