The most meaningful part of this campaign was to be able to have fun while also knowing that we were making a difference at the same time. Our group worked fairly well together and this project enabled me to enjoy science for once throughout this school year. I think from this project I gained better management skills but at the same time I need to work on dividing up the work on the project. Something our group could’ve done better was establishing clear jobs for each person at the beginning. I learned that my group was very fun and had a great attitude on climate change. My environmental attitudes haven’t necessarily changed so much yet but I think there is always room to grow and gradually as I get an even better understanding of climate change my environmental attitudes will change. It’s mostly that I’ve become more cautious of the things I do like throwing away waste in the correct bins because I know that organic waste decay in landfills causes fossil fuel extractions that release greenhouse gases. Lastly my actions in everyday life have not changed although much of the time I am thinking about climate change especially when I look at the weather every morning which is something I, personally am very interested in. In the future I hope to work more around the subject of climate change because this is a topic that really intrigues me. Overall an important piece of information for people to know is that their choices matter because climate change affects everyone-you, me, humans, animals etc. For example Polar Bears are losing their homes because “There are suggestions that before mid-century we could have a nearly ice-free Arctic in the summer.” -WWF(World Wildlife Fund) The ice caps could possibly melt. The End.
