Our Environment Is a Tragedy by River Staggs (Age: 14)


We all get told to help our environment, we need to start helping our environment now instead of later. We've been struggling with our environment for over 50 years and now people want to help.The gradual shift of life away from the three-dimensional space to cyberspace once promised a Jetsons-style efficiency, but not the back lash of pollution. Covid-sparked Zoom Boom has left many physical offices empty and drastically reduced mind-numbing, gas-guzzling commutes. Instead of seeking veins of gold or silver, cryptocurrency miners chase cheap energy even setting up shop on oil and gas pads to utilize methane that otherwise would be flared because more power use equals greater computing capacity, which equals higher profits.

Over the last few decades, the exploitation of our planet. As our actions have been not in favor of protecting this planet, we have seen natural disasters striking us more often in the form of flash floods, earthquakes, blizzards, tsunamis, and cyclones.Pollution of air, water, and soil takes a huge number of years to recover. Industry and engine vehicle fumes are the most obvious toxins. Substantial metals, nitrates, and plastic are poisons in charge of pollution.
