Science Essay

Perhaps, as stated by Weiss (2010), the human species is obliged to save and and its human cultural legacy for the sake of the future generation. However, Kennan (2010) stated downfalls to every age and these are the mass destruction done by humanity with the use of weapons",and second one is the wrecking of the civilization in a non- violent way. It is realized that mankind, living the dominance given by life, has the capability to destroy their home—Earth. The climate change",the depletion of ozone layer",the visible pollution be it in land",air or water are few of the many alterations built by humans. Conceivably",there are ways made to conserve what we still have and the answer to this is technology. However, no matter what invention that will precede the life on earth is not an excuse to a lasting protection from the damage built. The human race itself is held responsible for our its extinction. (Zalasiewics & Freedman",2009).Thus",this leads to the question: does the plausibility of immortality of this planet we live in lies beneath our own hands? Either the answer is a yes or no",what serves as our vision of what tomorrow will be? As eloquently stated by Weiss(2010), Every generation receives a gift from the past one",and that is the natural and cultural legacy but in the sententious form of trust, thus, it shall be existent for its descendants. reached this day. What has the 21st century to say? As indicated by Palmer(2002), environmental education has no place in formal education programs in the world. However",as the fundamental human needs are seen equitable while preserving the life support systems of Mother Earth, translates to the accelerated progress toward sustainability. (Kates",et al..2001). According to their research entitled Sustainability Science, in the field of science sustainability, it aims to understand the aspects of interactions between nature and society. These interactions will encourage and pursue towards the intended sustainability.(Kates",et al..2001). It is not impossible to think what capabilities the people have as they hold the knowledge of science. As indicated by Carson(1952)",we are very existent to a scientific age and yet the human beings see this knowledge and prerogative to a small population only. Anyone who lives;anyone who has life has the right the know the world he revolves in and thus",he welcomes the duties and obligations upon the “trust” endowed by the ancestors. However",Pollack (2005)",stated that Science",is such an uncertainty, and people who aren’t contented with the knowledge provided",blame it for the man made-causes in the environmental effects of the world. As shown by Pollack’s study entitled “Uncertain Science..Uncertain World” states an example of this is condemnation to global climate change in connection to petroleum and coal industries are induced to such narrow reasons of blaming. If only people would see the broad perception of why the world is changing, the aphorism stating the present will save the future, will not be just an aphorism. The 21st century is filled with creative minds and having the environmental education will fulfill the opportunity of saving tomorrow. As stated by Palmer(2005)",the environmental knowledge is young",dynamic and complexed but it will define the human understanding. Stating the element of knowledge the mankind inhibits",it is nothing without proof; without application to real life and mostly",without actions done. All organizations, programs and foundations are used to emphasize and to give attention to the fact that we have only one Earth",one true home and planet (Romulo, 2006). People",from the time they were young and innocent",were already taught the value of the planet we live in. We were always instructed to enumerate ways how to protect the world the world amidst the cruelty found within. There would be too many ceaseless answers, however, how many of is it enforced? Is the beauty we assume dominant to Mother Earth? A research done by Gore(1991)",states the threats done by human civilization to global environment and the threats of global environment to human civilization. It gave special attention to global warming—to how real it is and how it is getting worse rapidly. The burning of fossil fuels such as coal, oil, etc. harms the atmospheric blanket of the globe. In that case, more heat from the sun is trapped in which it has a massive effect onto the earth’s surface. For the whole existence of human history",t

there has been an imbalanced climatic stability. That is mainly caused by human beings. An act must be done to avoid further consequences. To contemplate these causes and effects, explains from what fundamental relationship have we built between humankind and the earth—to how we have transformed it. How do we interact with Mother Earth? As stated by Gore (2006) there are several factors which affects our physical connection to this world. First and prior is population. For over just a hundred of years, the population has quadrupled. A population can increase in billions for just a single course of lifetime. Now in the present time, the earth is comprised of more than 6 billion people. With the high risk of population",comes along with the demand of people to support themselves as it as a necessity to a human life. However, this would cause to the imbalance of resources. Its leaves a negative impact on the environment. The problems regarding population size and growth, the utilization and depletion of resources",and environmental degeneration should be considered jointly and must be based on global status (Ehrlich & Holdren",1971). Another factor mentioned by Gore(2006)",is the impact of technology. The time technology was introduced to the world, it has become a significant helping hand and a masterpiece to the eyes of everybody. Yet, technology is the opposite of the natural world where in people dwell to virtuality rather than reality. As we have given much attention on mobile and computer screens, we forget what is happening to the real world. There is a tendency to forget our purpose of realizing the consequences of our own actions. Lastly, the spontaneity given on short term thinking and indulgence. This refers to the attention on national economies and political agendas. In which therefore, it lead to the systematic exclusion of long-term consequences in our decisions and policies (Gore",2006). It is the sense of apathy—the lack of concern and compassion; the enemy of the relationship between human and Earth. Life on Earth has now reached the 21st century. We now have a risky population;technology takes control of our attention; our actions have caused many factors which resulted to climate change and global warming. The flood continues to arise as the storm went on for days. The clear",crystal blue river turned into a grayish color as dirt and garbage float above it. The illegal miners went on destroying the pure lands and so were the illegal loggers who took down the tress for infrastructures and constructions of buildings.There is a chance to species extinction. Indeed",the whole environment is polluted. All these are the constituents of nature we need in order to preserve our future towards the next generation. Nonetheless",if these unethical actions continue to settle",it is the humanity itself destroying the augmentation the world is heading to. How will a person from today’s generation answer if he or she is asked what will serve as the hope of the Earth? There are ways in which we can still save Mother Earth. Let our eyes to be open in reality now before it is already too late for regrets. To this day, it still prominent how the smallest acts can make a big difference. By just throwing trash onto the proper place or by planting trees, one can totally make a difference. Following such rules and regulations and participating in community projects advocates the passion to conserve and protect the Earth. Yes, small actions have a big impact. However",what is the next big step? Respect. The ethic of respect is the necessity of the present, when Mother Earth is undergoing dangerous stress. (Boff, 2015). If we learn how to respect the trees",there would be no deforestation. If the water forms are respected, there would be no garbage and plastic bags above it. If the ideologies of climate change was acknowledged",the ozone layer would have not been so thin, the ice caps from Antartica would not melt and the typhoon would have not endured. There are so many “what if’s” to every biological factors if its essence is respected. Notwithstanding",the “respect” also pertains to humanity . If we respect each other, we can unite. As respect begets unity, unity begets the perpetuation we aim for. The civilization has become astonishingly complex, as it grows ever more elaborate, we have increasingly became more distant from our roots in the earth.( Gore, 2006)The foundation of the journey of humanity—as people only share one home, has been so controlled and manufactured. Yet, the humanity shall never exceed the ab

the absoluteness of earth (Gore, 2006). Because we rely on our only planet as the Earth also depends on the mankind. This relationship is carried by generations to generations and that therefore makes the significancy of what the world will be tomorrow.
