    green so that the same damage would not be caused to the earth again minnaypyi said on 27 July 2010 at 10 00 AM Anyway the recover of ozone layer is just a prediction Even if it recover there will be so many factors like pollutions We will still need to go green to be back to the beginning We have damaged the earth for over thousands of years I don t think we can recover all in the couple of decades mjquek said on 29 July 2010 at 3 28 PM Even if the predictions hold the truth and that the ozone layer recovers by 2050 there are still other pressing environmental issues for us to go green What about animal protection What about deforestation What about depleting natural resources There are still environmental issues for us to deal with even if we managed to recover the depleted ozone layer In my honest opinions all these predictions are just another bunch of rumours It is very difficult for the ozone layer to recover when it is damaged 50 years wouldn t make any difference at all Post your comments Latest Topics CDL s E Gen Challenge E Generation Challenge13

    benefits shade food and fodder building material fuel better water infiltration and the type of habitat diversity that can support biodiversity And really how realistic is it for that to happen darrenchong While the repercussions might indeed be serious the World Cup cannot be stopped What can be done though could be to stop it with the demolishing of older stadiums and trying to raise even more awareness of a green campaign through the world cup But some stadiums could have been too old or already run out and its just a waste of space One thing to note also the kits made by Nike for this event was made from 8 recycled plastic bottles and helps to save raw materials and reduces energy consumption Thus the world cup is already improving in terms of being green wheewhee93 I disagree with the author s stance that we should not apply the prevention is better than cure method yes while it is preferable that we reduce the damage done and try avoid adding additional burden to the Earth however how long can we beat around the bush The author mentions the Olympics and the World Cup as a massive contributor of CO2 gas and thus i infer that he is suggesting that we should do something about it by either reducing the amount of CO2 produced or abolishing the event entirely However these events cannot be abolished as they play significant factors in comparing and raising the human limit and the extent which the human can go this leaves attempting to reduce the amount of CO2 produced while preparing the site for the event the author mentions his first comment that entirely new stadiums were constucted when stadiums were avalabile and nearby and simply could have been renovated But the World Cup being an internatinal event has to accomodate a certain number of people while the match is going on as it is in Singapore so many people were interested in purchasing the package from Singtel and Starhub to watch the World Cup what more the world there will definitely be certain people from the total population of 6 billion people on Earth who will want to make the hike to Africa to watch it live To spice it up even more it is held once every 4 years where various countries from across the world want to field their teams in a attempt to show who is the best in the name of sportsmanship Surely citizens from their respective countries would like to be there to support either their home country or favourites therefore the African government and FIFA have to keep this in mind when deciding whether to build new stadiums or by simply renovating current present stadiums Therefore with this in mind the African government had decided to attempt to preserve the environment and started an intiative to start planting trees while the author feels that it is not healthy to do so it is the best we

    trees have more advantages than disadvantages Trees are good for holding the land to prevent mudslides and landslides so if we remove them it would be disastrous Maybe we can plant more shrubs and bushes or hire arborists to specially monitor areas where trees have been exposed to harsh conditions repeatedly since trees that survived a storm will become more susceptible the second time For more on tree safety you can check out http www southernforests org urban trees and storm safety johnny11 said on 25 July 2010 at 9 20 PM Putting blames on the trees is really immature to even have a thought of it We should learn to appreciate what we have In other countries like Vietnam and Cambodia there are less trees on the sideway and you can immediately tell the difference in the air quality Also trees help to reduce the amount CO2 which is the largest contributor to global warming More trees means less CO2 Less CO2 means reducing global warming z8gelpure said on 25 July 2010 at 11 49 PM We should not be putting all the blame to going green Planting trees causes more help than hinder to the world I believe that trees crushing cars is because of natural factor The weather is causing it In addition to that the government is also looking into this problem and hope to resolve it as soon as possible And there is never enough to do to protect the earth not to say overdoing it We should do more as a minor effort may be a big help to the earth jcyl17 said on 26 July 2010 at 12 11 AM I do not think that Singapore is overdoing it Falling of trees and destroying cars are just accidents Without trees more disastrous things might happen such as landslides and air pollution People s health are more important than objects like cars nazama said on 26 July 2010 at 10 06 PM After some thoughts about this there are 2 sides to this whole overdoing the go green by planting too much trees Defending It never really hurts to overdo to go green as it will benefit the Earth as a whole just like what almost everyone here has said Cleaner airs and prevention of landslides are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the benefits of going green even if it is overdone Against Trees can indeed cause damage if they were to be placed anyhow in one s eagerness to go green Say if one were to plant a tree on a ground pathway or an unsuitable place it can be of hindrance or be a danger to anyone around it s vicinity should it fall What I say if that people should plan and co ordinate first on where to plant trees so that it will not affect anyone too much should it fall If the tree is indeed placed in an urban area where people are around

    humans and thus should be kept to a bare minimum not to mention the harmful dangers should an event like chernboyl happen again Of all the energy sources available nuclear energy produces the most energy but it also have its downsides and terrible dangers nazama said on 26 July 2010 at 10 30 PM The world does need nuclear energy and for it to be used in the right way of course The use of nuclear energy has to be carefully considered before setting up for use though I believe that countries with huge lands and resources like USA Russia and China can afford to use nuclear energy since they could do with it to power the population that needs it Nuclear energy however like what victortky said produces harmful radioactive waste that can be detrimental to us humans Hence I think it should be used minimally and only if the country can afford to maintain it and really needs it allen05 said on 27 July 2010 at 12 04 AM yes the world needs nuclear energy the world s population is growing and the thirst for energy is also surging nuclear energy is one of the best methods to attain enough power to subdue the ever growing thirst for power this method is not without its risks the Chernobyl incident is one such happening that portrays the disastrous side effects of a nuclear mishap but with careful supervision it could be put to good use Singapore would probably have one soon in the years to come as talks are being held minnaypyi said on 27 July 2010 at 9 40 AM If we are just looking at the disadvantages no one will want to use nuclear energy But nuclear is the best way to produce mass energy Despite its side effects its useful energy has no match with other sources I say it worth the risk since other sources pollution effects are also same with nuclear only they took longer time If we use carefully the gain would be very great Although there had been some very bad accidents most of the people in the world are in thirst of energy Min 2A 05 uresopreto07 said on 27 July 2010 at 9 58 AM Yes the world needs Nuclear Energy Because now we are using the nonrenewable resources to provide energy for example charcoal and oil for instance Though there are dangerous consequences if the Nuclear energy plant have a leak or a accident But by using Nuclear energy we save lots on harvesting of resources like charcoal But small countries like Singapore can t have a Nuclear power plant because we can t afford the space So Nuclear energy is only good for large countries where space is abundant and energy is in demand Siva 2A 05 fashhan8 said on 27 July 2010 at 11 32 AM no the world does not need it because there are many other alternatives other than using nuclear energy such as wind
