How much is the air conditioning؟ The influence of global warming affects not only the human beings but also on the animals, and one of these animals is turtle. There are many signs and events that have alarmed us that these animals are suffering from the climate change. There are many effects of the global warming on the turtles, for example, they could die, they could lose their habitat and they can't produce males (Christian Science Monitor, 2007).
There are many ways to solve or to decrease the influence of the global warming on turtles, for example, educate the people and change some of their habits, charge the factories’ owners for their pollution, and build special places to get male turtles.
First, we should educate the people and change some of their habits. We should ask the people to reduce the use of the cars because it is a direct way of pollution, which is one cause of the global warming. This pollution affects all of the species besides, if you use the bicycle or if you walk, you will be healthier. Some people really became lazy and they don’t imagine how they increase the pollution in such a way. Moreover, there is one important point, which is if some of us rely on the cars for our transportations, the next generation will grow up with this knowledge and that will increase our problems. We should start from now a huge campaign and effective programs to explain the influence of the global warming and to ask people to use the bicycle or to walk as much as they can. We know it is difficult to travel by a bicycle but we can use the bicycle to reach the place where we work.
Second, we should charge the factories’ owners for their pollution and form special organizations to care about the turtles and to offer a fair habitat for them. The owners of the factories live in great palaces at the expense of our health and at the expense of the turtles’ habitat. We should tell these owners that you are living in perfect houses but you are destroying the turtles’ habitat. Many water bodies have been dried from the pollution of your factories, so you should participate in helping these turtles and offer not great places like where you live but just a small water body for them to keep them alive. If they don’t have the time for that, they should support the environmental organizations to help the turtles and keep notice where they usually live and care about them.
Finally, we should build special places to get male turtles, because there is a direct effect of global warming on the turtle. Under the high temperature, turtle’s eggs would become female turtles and with the low temperature, turtle’s eggs would become male turtles. We can’t solve nature’s reasons for global warming, but we can build special places with low temperature to produce male turtles and, then distribute these males on the seas in order to continue the cycle of their life.
There are some people who may say that we have enough turtles in the world and they can't face extinction, but let us tell them this information; with the high temperatures and the drought, there are about 10,000 Murray turtles that were killed in southwest Queensland’s Currawinya (The Canberra Times, 2007). This is just in one small lake. Imagine that we see 10,000 people die in some village because of the pollution; what is our response going to be? We should be fair and honest because this planet belongs not only to human being but also to all species.
Both turtles and the global warming have a long history. First, turtles have been found on this planet from the Stone Age and many scientists have said that turtles have lived with the dinosaurs, so we know that this animal has survived from a long time. Next, if we think deeply about the global warming, which is the increase in the temperatures, we would figure out that the global warming has a long history as well, how? It is the main reason for finishing the ice age. So we have a long history for both the attacker and the attacked.
In conclusion, there are many ways to decrease the influence of global warming on turtles; for example, change the people habits, charge the factories’ owners and build special places to produce male turtles. We know that global warming is caused by both natural process and human activities, so let’s focus on the human activities.
