Green house gases (BTN)

Green house gases can be a good thing and a bad thing, depending on the way you look at it. It can be a good thing because it makes Earth warmer. With out Greenhouse gases in the air Earth’s average temperature would be -18′ C. But with all the heat the Greenhouse gases absorb, it naturally makes earth hotter. With all this extra heat ice will melt, causing sea levels to rise. If sea levels rise costs will be flooded and with the ice melting animals like penguins will lose their homes.

I understand that the Greenhouse effect can be a good thing and a bad thing. If people stop using their cars as much and if they stop buying as much the amount of Greenhouse gases in the air will decrees as well as keep Earth warm.

I would like to know if humans will change there ways. I hope they do because by doing so we can stop floods and save many animals from losing their habitats. I would really appreciate it if you talked to your parents to see if YOU and YOUR FAMILY can make a difference.

BTN Flag day

Some people want to change the Australian flag because it doesn’t show the indigenous side of Australia. Also Britain might change because Scotland wants become a independent nation. So the Union jack might have to change.

I now know what everything on the Australian flag stands for: The union jack stands  for the first settlers of Australia and the stars on the side are the shorthorn cross. And the little star under the union jack shows the stares and territories of Australia.

Do you think they will ever change the flag.

BTN: Quinsy

Quinsy is a amazing little girl who is only 6 years old and is at the stage of a professional surfer. She also does skating as well as surfing. Her coach says she could be close to the best 6 years old skater and surfer in the WORLD!

Quinsy has made me realize that you can never be to small to make a impact and that its possible to be as amazing as she is in only 2 years of training.  As that racer dude in ‘Turbo’ says

“No dream is to big and no dreamer to small.”

Her story makes me wonder if I had stayed in Austria and kept skiing if I could be as amazing as she is.
