Blog #7

In Life As We Knew It, the moon moved closer to the earth and no one really thought what it could do. The impact it would have on humanity and the environment around us. I believe this relates to how we never really consider the consequences of global warming. In the book, shortly after the moon moves closer a tsunami destroyed coastal cities, islands, and most of Australia. The weather also begins to go all haywire too. This is just some of the consequences of global warming. The sea level would rise and we don't know how much, this means it could destroy more than we think. Since global warming would melt most or all of the ice, the ocean current would more than likely shut down. If the ocean currents shut down European countries will be buried in snow and ice because the ocean current brings warm weather. That's only the beginning though, the consequences continue. They never considered what a comet could do if hit the moon, just like we never considered what global warming can really do

Blog #6

I'm currently reading Life As We Knew It by Susan Pfeffer and here's some words that I find interesting.

1. Commitment Pg: 6
Definition: A pledge or promise.
I found this word interesting because I don't hear it that much. Maybe it's because I'm still kind of young and huge important commitments aren't really talked about when you're around my age.

2. Cynicism Pg: 13
Definition: Being bitter, distrusting, or pessimistic of one's motives.
I found this word interesting because I have never heard it before and I feel like it's more common.

3. Anchorman Pg: 24
Definition: A person on the radio or television.
I found this word interesting because people never use the word anymore.

4. Vegetable Flats Pg: 39
Definition: A bunch of seeds in/on a tray.
I found this word interesting because I never heard of it, probably because I'm not into gardening.

5. Cusp Pg: 61
Definition: The point of a crescent, mainly referring to the moon.
I found this interesting because the moon has another nickname.
