Title : Pollution affects the World

Pollution is something man is to blame for. It is damaging everything that is on our planet.

Global warming is causing billions of dollars in damage to places we swim and to the fish in the sea. The Great Barrier reef is about to die because of the warmer water temperature.

The soot from fireplaces and smoke stacks around the world is being carried by the wind and landing in the Arctic and the North Pole. All this soot in the Arctic turns the ice black and makes it melt. It also makes the water warmer and the weather worse.

Title : Pollution from the Animals
Location : Puerto Rico

Believe it or not the cows are causing damage by going to the bathroom, because the rain takes the poop and washes it into the streams and lakes and ponds. Thousands of feet of cow poop is polluting the La Plata River in Puerto Rico.

Title : Pollution from the Air
Location : China

Big nations like China make lots of pollution that fall back into the oceans making the water go bad. Even some things we do everyday like
throwing out our garbage can go into the air and land in the water.

Title : Hurricains and Rising Water
Location : Bahamas

The ocean is rising so much that it is going to cover the islands in water. The ice in the Arctic is melting and causing the water to rise. Pollution is making warmer water which also hurts the Bahamas with more Hurricanes.
