The present article is exploring 7 issues that our oceans are facing. It is important to raise awareness about the destructive impacts humans have on them. It also states that we use all the good resources it gives us and we use it as a dump afterwards by dropping all our waste in it. The first problem humans cause is overfishing. We do not think about all the other species that are killed while fishing in the ocean with our big nets, causing troubles in the aquatic life.

In the article “Climate Change Cause and Effect” by Joseph F. Doyle explains what humans that causes so many consequences. During 1950, the annual amount of carbon dioxide that was released in the air was around 9.2 billion tons. Nowadays, humans use 40.8 billion tons of carbon dioxide per year. In between Christmas 2017 and January 8, 2018, there was almost a new record made when it came to the amount of snowfall in North America. Other natural disasters such as strong hurricanes, wildfires, drought, hail, tornadoes and flooding have caused the U.S.

In his article “How disappearing sea ice has put Arctic ecosystem under threat”, Robin McKie warns that over two million square kilometres of midwinter sea ice have melted in less than forty years. Global warming, caused by excessive carbon emissions from cars and factories, is the main cause of sea ice loss. This deterioration of the Arctic natural ecosystem is seriously endangering many species like seals, fish, polar bears, foxes, and wolves since according to the marine ecologist Tom Brown, the Arctic food chain depends on a stable sea ice platform to survive.

     The purpose of the Dennis Dimick’s article; “As World’s Population Booms, Will Its Resources Be Enough for Us?” in the National Geographic was to bring to light the current and future issues relating to our populations increasing growth rates, our consumption increase, the factors behind these issues and viable solutions.

The future can either be seen as something frightning or as something exciting, but it appears terrifying for most people. First, the future is obviously frightning for those who struggle with finding their way. Of course, it makes them insecure about how and where they will end up. On the opposite side, the future may seem exciting for people who have specific goals and who are planning to live in a certain way, but there is still a teryfying feeling. What if things don't happen the way they want? What if they don't succeed? There is always the fear of failing.

First of all, not knowing what’s going to happen in the future is a good thing. If we already knew exactly how our whole life is going to be, it would be very boring. Just imagine knowing the date of our death. Also, life is an adventure. Every day is a chance to learn and discover. It’s sure that sometimes adventures can be frightening, but in the end, the excitement surely surpasses the fear. Finally, living in fear will not lead to anything good. It’s better to see in the future an occasion to improve yourself rather than think about what can go wrong.

A subject on the rise in the last few years and the cause of many debates is the question of whether or not meat is good for you. Reader's Digest's expert Chris Woolston wrote an article on the matter and gathered some factual information from different reports and studies in order to bring some clarity on the topic.

                The article I read is “Dogs use same parts of brain to process speech as humans.” This article is about a research project done on dogs in Budapest. The issue in this text is whether dogs process speech similarly to how humans process speech, or if they don’t. After reading the article I think the conclusion is that they do. 1. Dogs use the left hemisphere of the brain to process words. 2.  Dogs use the right hemisphere of the brain to process intonations. 3. Humans use the left hemisphere of the brain to process words
