The world is riddled with problems such as climate change, pollution, poverty, wars, and etc. These problems are currently unresolved and will most likely stay as is for longer periods of time.

A team of researchers discovered incredolous amounts of cadium and arsenic in the air of the hotspots of Portland, which can prove hazardous to human health such as development of anomalies in children and cancer. During the investigations of these hotspots, the same team of researchers found an unlikely indicator of highly polluted air: the moss named Orthotrichum lyelli, which is not only cheaper than the current method they are using, but also much much more economical.

I like the idea of electric cars, being a fan of technology myself, it is not hard to image how happy I would be to try a tesla or simply ride a nissan leaf. In the recent years, the Government of both Canada and USA have made many improvements to the highways isntalling many electric vehicule charging stations allong resting areas to help people travel long distance. I believe electric cars are the future and will cause less pollution.

Scientists have recorded that the global temperature has been rising constantly since the industrial revolution. Though some speculate it to be a pattern that goes around every 100 thousand years, it is still becoming a huge problem as our technology advances.According to Jeff Tollefson's article, reducing the methane and black carbon emmisions could immensely decrease the projected warming by 2050.
