Global Warming speech

28 Feb

This is my speech and already used in a contest. 

Free to use but ask me first. Credits belong to me and internet.

Good morning/afternoon/evening.

May God bless all of you.

First of all, thank God that all of we can gather here with a healthy body and mind. And I would like to say thank you to the teacher and my entire friend that has given me an opportunity for a speech on this nice day…

Have you ever feel that day to day, the temperature is increasing? This is what we called global warming.  An increasing of the earth’s temperature. It said that this is the biggest problem in this century.

In 1824, Joseph Fourier found that atmosphere can be emerged by sun’s light. But not all of them can be reflected out. Then about 30 years later, John Tyndall found that gasses that trapped heat are the carbon dioxide and finally that’s those molecules named greenhouse gasses.

This greenhouse effect is the main cause of the global warming. This effect is an effect where sun light reflected to the earth is trapped inside the atmosphere. The sun’s energy is absorbed by the earth and reflected again in the shape of infrared by the earth’s surface and the cloud, but largely is trapped. Actually in normal state, the effect is needed to keep the earth warm, about 30o C.

The cause of the greenhouse effect is the increasing of carbon dioxide and the other gasses in this atmosphere. This is because of the combustion of fuel and other organic contain that surpasses the plant and sea’s capability to absorb it.

The other cause of global warming is the solar variation. It is a change in sun’s radiation. Greenhouse gases and solar forcing affect temperatures in different ways. While both increased solar activity and increased greenhouse gases that are expected to warm the troposphere, an increase in solar activity should warm the stratosphere, while an increase in greenhouse gases should cool the stratosphere.

Continued global warming could have many damaging effects. For example, the weather becomes unstable. The scientists predict the arctic ice is melting due to global warming. Because of that the ocean’s surface is slowly increasing. The ocean surface said had increase 10- 25 cm during the 20th century and the scientists predict more. The global temperature has also increase 1o every 100 years. Small it is, but have you realize 1o is this hot?

With that, all live without exceptions are threatened. Trees which are the antidote for the greenhouse effect had been logged. Every day, a soccer field sized field of tree has been log. We must realize it’s not the same as past, when we and nature live all happily. Now, we hurt each other. Cruel, isn’t it?

One more example is here, in our country. The lapindo brantas case. It’s very terrible that there is no one could stand against that. Even now there isn’t any solution.

We as the young generation cannot just remain seated while nature suffering. We are blessed, but there are people who aren’t this lucky. They suffered. They’re dying every day. It is true that along with the globalization, people’s knowledge and awareness is increasing and they are reducing it little by little. Many bio friendly technologies are discovered. The plant has been replant one by one. But we still have to do something, right?

Firstly, plant a tree. This could be easier than it sounds. Join or help out a local wildlife group and ask to plant a tree. Trees, when fully grown, will help keep the planet cooler. On the same point, you could protest against the demolition of the rainforests. This is the same principle, we need the trees to cool our planet and yet they are chopping them down to create roads or homes.

Something as simple as walking instead of taking the car will help reduce pollution. As well as stopping pollution, you are giving yourself exercise, something important for our bodies. So the next time you get into your car, or your motorbike, think – do I have to make this journey by vehicle or can I walk?

When you are at home, and you’re getting a little cold, put a jumper on and do not adjust the heating. The extra heat produced by our homes also affects the planet. So try wearing an extra layer in winter.

If possible, buy your fruit and vegetables from local suppliers. And try to avoid imported goods. The more foreign food that we import the more pollution from airplanes and boats it will create.

Keeping to the speed limit can also help the environment. The more you speed the more petrol you are going to use, making the pollution higher. Also, SUV’s make about six times their own weight in CO2 each year. A small efficient diesel car covering the same distance not only uses much less fuel; it makes two thirds less.

If possible use solar energy, after all it is free; all you need to buy is the equipment. You can get much of your hot water and heating from the sun and even generate electricity.

Reduce, reuse and recycle. Only buy what you need; don’t stock the cupboards with things you may or may not use. Reuse whatever you can, like containers and paper, and recycle what you cannot reuse. It really is as simple as that.

Finally turning off unused sources of power such as televisions and heaters will help the environment, as well as save you money.

If everybody stuck to these rules, we would be doing a great thing by protecting the earth. So please take into consideration what I have said, and try to do your part. After all, it will be our next generation that will feel the effects

This is all can I can say. Maybe this speech has a lot of shortcomings. And is there a word that isn’t pleasing you, I’m truly sorry for that.

Heal the world, make it a better place. Thank you very much.

Drugs speech

28 Feb

This is my spech and already used in a contest. 

Free to use but ask me first. Credits belong to me and internet.

Good morning audience!

May God bless all of you.

My name is Michelle Nadya from public junior high school six Banjarmasin.

First, let’s thank God for his blessing that all of we can gather here with a healthy body and mind. I would like to say thank you too for the judges and all of you that given me a nice opportunity for a speech.

Drugs. What are them? A drug is any substance with the exception of food and water, which when taken into the body, alters the body’s function either physically or psychologically. When you put them into your body, drugs find their way into your bloodstream and are transported to parts of your body, such as your brain. In the brain, drugs may intensify or dull your senses, alter your sense of alertness, and sometimes decrease physical pain. A drug if consume will make the user addicted. Actually, these drugs are a medicine or antidote for some disease or to cure animal. But it is consumed by they who aren’t sick, beyond the limit dose.

Those were mostly victims of a ‘cruel’ environment, a broken-home family, of ignorance, of curiosity or particularly of the illegal drugs mafia. Why are the teenagers the most consumers of using narcotic and drugs? Because
Teenagers are usually eager to know every think and want to try it whether it is good or bad, and never think its effect. They are too easy to influence to do many thinks. Drugs vary. There are Heroin, shabu, Ecstasy, marijuana, cocaine, tobacco, and alcohol. The most people use drugs use shabu. These drugs are readily available in all major urban areas, including schools, Karaoke lounges, bars, cafes, discotheques, nightclubs, and they even spread into remote villages. Therefore it is not surprising that drug users continue to increase from year to year.

What’s the effect? Many. Well, drugs make the user feel free, happy, and such. But anything have a side effect. This too. Such, it can hurt our heart, hemoprosic, brain, bones, skin, lungs, infected AIDS and so much more. It also can make us depressed mentally, psychotics, or even make us commit suicide. The worst scenario, they died.

Drug abuse has also contributed to the increase of HIV/AIDS patients, through the usage of unsterile injections. According to a report based on an illicit drug and injection safety study of 20 Asian countries conducted by the Center for Harm Reduction in Australia’s Burnet Institute, drug injecting is spreading to all the countries [of Asia] and its popularity is increasing. Our Country, Indonesia have up to 1 million drug injectors, and 19% of them were infected HIV/AIDS. How Dangerous the drugs abuse for us.

This is an extremely serious issue for us. It’s a threat that could kill an entire generation. One generation of this nation will be lost if we do not take action together and immediately. In short, we must be ready to go to war against illicit drugs and the war must start from home.

Then, what can we do as the young generation? Prevention is better than cure.

Be aware of what you take. Know the names of the medications you take and what they are for.

Make sure that one doctor knows about everything you takeA lot of times each drug you take was prescribed by another specialist, and none of them is aware of the other specialists or the medications they prescribed. It’s important to update your primary caregiver about all the medications you take – this way he/she can see if you take drugs that don’t interact well, or take several drugs which do the same thing. It can help your doctors if you bring a list of the medications you take) to every appointment.

Ask your doctor questions. Try to understand why each drug is important, and ask if it’s necessary. Ask what the possible side effects of each drug are. Ask for how long you should take the drugs – some drugs are only for temporary use, while other are for a long term.

Don’t stop taking prescription drugs without talking to your doctor. Sometimes it’s dangerous to just stop taking a drug, and a gradual withdrawal is needed.

Consult a pharmacist about Over-The-Counter (OTC) drugs, especially if you take prescription drugs as well.

Read the Drug label. This is especially important in Over-The-Counter drugs – the label includes information like the uses of the drug, warnings, a list of possible side effects, and information about the dosage and storage of the drug.

AVOID the Drugs, don’t ever think to try just because you curios. Because once you try, you will be trapped and later become addicted, and the addiction will finally turn you into criminals or take your lives.

Now it’s time for us to say ‘NO’ to drugs. Thank you.
