Question of the Day

"If you could change one thing about the environment, what would it be and why?"

by Julie Grenier, TG Magazine youth journalist
"I would change something about overpopulation. The more people there are, the greater the stresses on all resources. Overpopulation also leads to less education, which leads to less understanding on why to conserve." says Douglas Lay from the USA

"I would change the way people view their environment. I wish people would treat the areas that they live in as places to protect. Maybe naturalize cities. It would make us more in touch with nature," says Jake Berkowitz from Canada

"I would stop deforestation. It's important to conserve nature," says Asuka Imani from Japan

"I would do something about the population situation. Humans are stressing the earth with their demands. As you add to the population, you equally add pressure to the earth," says Barry Hughson from Canada

"I would stop the deforestation of the rainforest because it holds rich areas in terms of biodiversity. A lot of O2 in our air is contributed by the rainforest, and there are a lot of plants with great medecinal value. Plus, people also live there," says Keiren Bluestone from Switzerland
