Today I will talk about some environmental issues and propose my ideas to improve eco-situation in Ukraine!
First Video:As we all know, more than 2/3 of world energy comes
from fossil fuels, known as nuclear energy. But there are several ways to
minimizecarbon footprint and one of that – usage of alternative forms of
energy. Wind power now is the major source which can lower the carbon energy
and in order to integrate wind power effectively, we should find compromise “where
to put wind farms?”, and the best solution to it – offshore wind farms. Another
amazing thing is to cut down on supply or demand for 5 most energy consuming
materials (paper, plastic, aluminium etc.). By doing so, we can use less energy
to produce them and reuse former ones, which still has a good value, like cement
in the old buildings. So, the main thing which should be implemented is a different
system so that to have the behaviour change and use renewable energy.
Second Video: It’s indeed important for people to respond in
eco-friendly way to the climate change and show their understanding of things.
Scientists search for more efficient ways to feed 10 billion people, or to
reduce food miles & carbon footprint, but what is also important – the level
of people’s acceptance, and that’s why psychology is at the same level as the groundbreaking
research. People will only approve that source of energy, which are safe,
reliable and efficient. Several researches are now conducted: “Sunshine”, which
is orientated to the better understanding of sun and photosynthesis and “Low
carbon supply chain”, which takes on the major role of developing the new ways
for enterprises to reorganise their supply chain so that to reduce emissions of
I propose a 3 step-idea that will help Ukrainian to better
understand the environment and biodiversity of the Earth, and at the same time
to consider the environmental impacts of global warming and other changing weather
patterns, while figuring out long-term solutions.
1. Raise awareness of absolutely vital part of human
kind’s life – environment, through additional courses, workshops, programs at
the schools and universities or even through social ads.
2. Introduce people to 3R (Reuse. Reduce. Recycle)
approach of waste disposal which can be easily implemented in every house.
3. Involve more youth into the ecologyor other naturescience,
where they can conduct various researches and experiments, which are environmentally
So, if Ukraine doesn’t want to keep on standby and
make a difference, it must start with the people!
How are you? It’s been a long time since the
last time I saw you.
I’m writing you to say how much I appreciate
your contribution to my immigration.
Without your help I don’t know how I could possibly get accustomed to living in the USA. After
several weeks I get used to sleeping on the chairs and combining
education with household chores, like doing laundry and cooking. Remember you’ve
made me that egg cream drink? I’m still tempted by it; sometimes I even make a change by adding a
cinnamon there. Also, I’ve
gone ona day trip
to Coney Island, where I was sunbathing,
swimming and recharging my batteries.
That’s a great thing to unwindin the open air and
wander aimlessly through the NY, enjoying the remarkably diverse architecture of this vibrant city.
Funny thing: when I was crossing the board of USA,
I nearly dropped my new
passport into the sea. I got so scared, that I wouldn’t get to our self-catering flat, but
eventually everything was as easy as ABC. Even now, after several months living
here I can’t get rid of culture
shock, because every single thing offers a unique experience. I had feelings of nostalgiaonce or twice, but
that’s something that helps me to adore NY even more.
Would you like to go somewhere together, for
example, hiking or camping? Looking forward to
hearing from you.
