Penguins will be extinct very soon

In this article, “Antarctic warming to reduce animals at base of ecosystem, shift some penguin populations southward,” the author reports that global warming pushes penguin populations southward. In this article a researcher, Lyons, said “the marine ecosystems respond dramatically to increases in temperatures.” The temperature causes the krill to become less. Penguins come to have less food to eat. Another thing that causes penguin populations to go southward is the sea ices melt, because the sea ices melt causes penguins to come to have no land to live on. Finally, the points are that less food and sea levels rising are the two bigger things to cause penguins to be endangered. These things push penguins to migrate to other places.

Global warming affects a lot of things. Penguins are the one of animals that gets affected by global warming. Global warming causes climate change and the temperatures to rise. These things cause animals to be unable to live in their own place. Warming is a serious effect for penguins and other animals who live around water. We cannot let these things become worse and worse. If we keep all wing it to become worse, penguins are going to be extinct, because of their food chain, sea levels and the pollution into the sea.

First, warming broke penguins’ food chain. In our biosphere every species has its own food chain to live. But global warming broke it. Global warming changes the climate and makes the temperatures rise. It pushes every species to be unable to adapt to their environment. Some species will die and some will change to a new place to be alive. So, everything will become less and less. The food chain got changed, so naturally it influences penguins’ life.

Second, the sea levels’ rising makes the sea ice go away. Global warming changed the temperatures. The temperature is getting warm enough to make sea ice melt. Therefore, the sea ice’s becoming less and less causes penguins to have no land to live on. Now, penguins are going to find new sea ice to live on and also dead with a lack of food. Therefore, one-day penguins will be extinct.

Third, some pollution goes into the sea to destroy penguins’ ecosystems. The industrial pollution, and oil industry populates the sea. These kinds of pollution make water quality such that some species can’t live in it. It makes species die and penguins cannot live in these kinds of tainted water. Therefore, they become less and less.

In conclusion, the food chain, sea levels and the pollution into the sea are the same thing. Actually these things are in a circle and they are connecting. One thing influences another thing to happen. It is a very serious problem. Therefore, we cannot let these things become worse and worse. If we do not care about it carefully, penguins will become extinct very soon.

Penguins must stay alive

In Michael Wines’s article, “Penguins: Adorable and endangered,” he explains penguins’ life, lifestyle and history. In this article some scientists talk about penguins’ history. They said in the past we had a lot of penguins an the coasts of Namibia and South Africa. But now they mostly live on some island. And this article talks about what kinds of penguins we have and their characteristic. It explains how adorable they are. Then, this article talks about why penguins are becoming endangered. It is about environment and climate change. Specifically it has to be fishing, climate, egg stealing and oil pollution. Now, some organizations have started to protect and help penguins. And some penguin lovers have donated or give penguins more homes because these things are a big problem for penguins.

Penguins are animals on the edge of extinction in the world. Penguins have become less and less in the world. One day they will disappear. It is a terrible thing for everyone in our world. Penguins are adorable and they are one of the special animals we like to see. We cannot let penguins become extinct. We need to begin to reduce something that will cause penguins to be extinct and give penguins protection. Finally, we cannot let penguins become extinct; we also can prevent global warming and we can keep penguins alive for our offspring.

First, we cannot let penguins be extinct; we need to keep them alive. They are an animal that belongs to our world. They live on our earth and make us feel happy when we can see them. And they are a harmless animal for our society, so why do we watch them become extinct. We have to keep penguins alive and protect them. Thus, we can still see the lovely penguins and let penguins make us happy.

Second, to protect penguins we also can prevent global warming. Global warming causes climate change, so if we have some strategies to protect penguins, we also prevent global warming. It is a good thing to do for encouragement. We can from do one thing to get two results. And these things are good for both humans and penguins.

Third, we should keep penguins alive for our offspring. We do not want our offspring to just be able to watch penguins on television or in book. They cannot see this kind of lovely penguin in real life. That’s a kind of melancholy thing for our offspring and our world. In the end, we have to keep penguins and help penguins stay alive. Thus our offspring can see this cute animal in their real life.

In conclusion, now penguins are animals on the edge of extinction in the world. A lot of organizations start to protect and help them. Penguins are one of the wonderful animals in our world. Therefore, when penguins get endangered we have to protect them. I like penguins. For me, they are adorable. I support the idea that penguins must stay alive.

Global warming should be prevented

In Shaoni Bhattacharya’s article, “Global warming threatens millions of species,” she explains why animal and plants will become extinct because of global warming. First she indicates animals and plants will become extinct because the climate changed. Some of them will stay in existence, but some of them will die. Second, she explains a study paper that is research Thomas did with his colleagues. The important thing about global warming is that climate changed. And Thomas also indicates the effects of climate change will be habitat destruction, invasions by alien species and overexploitation by humans. Third, Thomas said some species can survive but some will still be confined to a particular area. So, he said it should be related to government. Government should to do some strategies for global warming.

This case shows global warming will make climate change. Next, climate change should be considered as similar to habitat destruction, invasions by alien species and overexploitation by humans. And these things will make a lot of animal and plant extinction. Therefore, government should begin to find some solutions to prevent global warming, like cutting emissions of greenhouse gases. And these are a kind of good solution to protect us. It can make species safe, educate people and make a better life environment.

First, these strategies can make species safe. Global warming has begun to push a lot of species to the edge of extinction. So, if we still want these species alive, we have to do it. In this world we have a lot of unique species, but global warming affects by pushing them to extinction. However we have to keep them alive, because they are unique and valuable. And it also will affect tourism. If some species are disappearing, then we will lose some kind of thing to help our tourism. Therefore, we should prevent extinction and protect ourselves from global warming.

Second, we can educate people in this way. In this century, our technology is developed. We have a lot of electric equipment and scientific stuff we can use, but these kinds of stuff cause global warning. So, we can teach people how to prevent global warming’s becoming worse and educating them to love our earth. We must teach people not to use these kinds of things that will cause global warming too much. In the end, by saving species we also can save human’s lives.

Third, we can make a better life environment. A good environment is a very important thing for every creature. A good environment helps everything grow, giving humans and species good environment to live.

In conclusion, global warming is a really terrible thing for our world and earth. It makes a lot of things disappear, but it is caused by humans. Humans use a lot bad stuff to cause global warming. Finally, it pushes our species to extinction, but now government begins to stop global warming from becoming worse. Therefore, some of species should survive.

Associate to Press. (2007, September 27). Ancient Ethiopian city looks to future with tourism. Retrieved October 02, 2007, from


In this article, “Ancient Ethiopian city looks to future with tourism,” the author explains why and how the city Harar can become a center of tourism. In the past, Harar cues very old; it had a lot of old buildings and an old environment. And it has really bad surroundings like chronic water shortage and not a lot of hotels. But now this city has started to update its environment to be more modern. They have started to build new and modern buildings, do some advertising, and invest for this city. Finally, this city has a good beginning.


After reading this article I revived some article about tourism before. Those articles talked about how to improve economics from tourism or wanting to develop their own tourism. In this article, like the last RRJ article I read, both talked about developing tourism, like changing and improving the environment or building a lot of new tourism facilities. But in this article it talks about an ancient Ethiopian city, so it sounds interesting. This city is kind of old and is a holy city for Islam so when I read about how it wants to develop its tourism I feel really it is so newfangled. But every country can have a chance and probability to make their tourism become good or successful. I want and hope that Harar’s tourism can become successful, because it is an old city and they have invested a lot. They pay a lot of mind in the project; so if this develops really successfully that will be very good for them and for this special city.

Bean Yancey, K. (2007, September 20). U.S. tourists flock to revamped Cancun. USA Today. Retrieved September 25, 2007, from


In Kitty Bean Yancey’s article, “U.S. tourists flock to revamped Cancun,” she explains how Cancun’s tourism is getting better. In the earlier time Cancun had a lot of damage, but now it is having some resorts and commission. Cancun opens a lot of upscale hotels and Club Med. Most of them customers are U.S. tourists, making hotel occupancy have a good averaging number. Meanwhile there is a new terminal opening for international visitors in May. Therefore, it is shining on Cancun tourism.


After reading this article I am really happy for Cancun’s tourism. It is shining on another tourism. And as I said before, tourism is an interesting undertaking. It can create more tourism facilities and improve an economy. In Cancun’s case, after damage, they redid to build a hotel and Club Med, but it is better and more attraction than before. And it is good these kinds of hotel really attract people to come, especially U.S. tourist. Therefore, I am happy we can have more tourism undertakings in our world.
