Letter to the Editor: Earth Distress Signals

By Amanda Valenti

Dear Editor,

A growing issue has been the recent change in weather all over the world. Natural disasters have been occurring left and right, leaving room for people to question our existence in the future.

Is it possible we have destroyed our world beyond repair to the point where the earth is giving us signs that she is about to implode?

The weather in New Jersey is generally predictable, but recently it has thrown us for a loop. The constant change in temperature is not only an annoyance, but a cause for concern in my eyes.

A volcano interrupting airline flights and earthquakes destroying homes just seems like Earth’s way of trying to send out smoke signals, so we are not surprised when the end comes.

This just makes me think whether we could have done something to prevent this from happening, what with pollution and such. Maybe the earth is supposed to end regardless of human impact, but it just leaves so many questions unanswered.

I also wondering whether or not scientists will have enough time to delve deeper into these issues before it is too late.

I think publications missed the ball on getting information out to the public. People read newspapers all the time. It just seems like one of the best ways to get serious information out to a large audience.

Maybe we all just missed the ball on this one. I just hope it is not too late to save the Earth. It feels like she is trying to tell us something serious is in the works.
