Migratory birds “[rely] on many different geographic locations throughout [their] annual cycle for food, rest and breeding” (par. 7). They require protection along each of these steps during their migration cycles. The issue discussed in “Few Migratory Birds Adequately Protected across Migration Cycle” is that not only this protection is not assured, it is not constant even if present. This is explained through the difference of environmental protection programs in different countries.

Climate change has already started to impact and transform life on earth which should be alarming to all of us human beings. We depend on the planet to give us resources such as water and air, although it seems that climate change can be affecting these resources in a negative way. Not only are our resources at risk, there are also plenty different species of wild life that are being endangered due to climate change. An example of a species of wild life that is beginning to become endangered is the polar bears.

Bee Movie had it right, not in a sense where bees can talk (that would be awesome), but the emphasis on the importance of the bees when it comes to agriculture. This is the message of alert portrayed in the article “Organic agriculture is helping save bees from extinction”. Ok, talking realistically, there is a major difference when it comes to the bee movie and reality: the movie presents the idea of having agriculture and flowers dying out; while reality includes bees’ extinction before that happening.

Summary: This article is separated into three parts: present, past, and future. Starting with the present, we get the good news: renewable energies have surpassed coal and nuclear energies in supplying UK's energy electricity for the previous quarter of 2015. Looking at the data, this article shows a whole lot of optimism, renewable energies are expanding and by a lot: solar more than doubled and wind increased by 65% in only a year. In total, renewable energies supplied 25% of the electricity with bioenergy, wind power, and solar leading the charge.

The article "Une transition vers l’énergie renouvelable créerait des millions d’emplois," published in Le Devoir, makes the idea of transforming our world a very short-term possibility. Indeed, Greenpeace has stated that changing the entirety of the energy sources on Earth to renewable ones could be possible by 2050 and could create millions of jobs.  This project, based on a document made in collaboration with the German Aerospace Center called Energy ® Evolution, would completely stop the use of gas, oil, nuclear power and coal in the Earth’s energy production.
