Climate change in the world can be caused by various activities. When climate change
occurs; temperatures can increase a dramatically. When temperature rises, many different changes
can occur on Earth. For example, it can result in more floods, droughts, or intense rain, as well as
more frequent and severe heat waves. Oceans and glaciers have also experienced some changes:
oceans are warming and becoming more acidic, glaciers are melting, and sea levels are rising. As
these changes frequently occur in future decades, they will likely present challenges to our society
and environment.

During the past century, human activities have released large amounts of carbon dioxide and
(( other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Most of the gases come from burning fossil fuels to
1 produce energy. Greenhouse gases are like a blanket around the Earth, trapping energy in the
2 atmosphere and causing it to warm. This is called the greenhouse effect and it is natural and
necessary to support life on earth. However, while greenhouse gases build up, the climate changes
and result in dangerous effects to human health and ecosystems. People have adapted to the stable
climate we have enjoyed since the last ice age which ended several thousand years ago. A warmer
climate can bring changes that can affect our water supplies, agriculture, power and transportation
systems, the natural environment, and even our own health and safety. There are some climate
changes that are unavoidable and nothing can be done about it. For example, carbon dioxide can stay
in the atmosphere for nearly a century, so Earth will continue to warm in the future .

In conclusion, we need to take part and try to stop global warming and other effects on
climate change. If the earth's temperatures continue to rise in the future, living things on earth would
become extinct due to the high temperatures. If humans contribute to control global warming, this
world would be cooler and the high temperatures we currently have would decrease. If everybody as
one take stand and try to end most of the climate changes that are occurring, this world would be a
safer place to live on.

Drug abuse is rife in many countries. Billions of dollars are spent internationally preventing
drug use, treating addicts, and fighting drug-related crime. Although drugs threaten many societies,
5 their effects can also be combated successfully.
Drug abuse causes multiple problems for countries and communities.The medical and
psychological effects are very obvious. Addicts cannot function as normal members of society. They
neglect or abuse their families, and eventually require expensive treatment or hospitalization. The
second effect is on crime. Huge police resources are needed to fight smuggling and dealing. Criminal
gangs and mafia underworlds develop with the money from drugs.
However, the menace of drugs can be fought. Education is the first battle. Children need to be
told at home and in school about drugs. People need to be aware of the effects so that they can make
avoid this problem A second approach is to increase police manpower and powers to stop dealers and
to enforce the law. However the main target should be the user. Families and counselors need to talk
to children and people at risk. Parents need to look at their children and help them to become
responsible. Jobs are needed to give people a role in society.
In conclusion, although the problem of drugs may seem impossible to eliminate, there are
concrete steps that can be taken to weaken the hold of drugs on society. The danger from drugs is too
great to ignore. We must act now to save our society.
