Dear Aggie: when seasons of life and weather change
My friend thinks Earth Day doesn’t matter and climate change is a lie. What are your thoughts?
Sincerely, Climate Conscious
It can be hard to wrap your head around the vast theories of science like climate change, but the evidence for it is overwhelming.
By studying prehistoric rock formations, scientists have discovered that the Earth has gone through natural periods of heating and cooling, such as the Ice Age.
However, the contemporary issue we face with climate change started when humans exponentially increased the amount of greenhouse gasses since the Industrial Revolution, accelerating natural climate change at an alarming rate.
This brings up the point of Earth Day. Each year, we commit to reversing our impact on the environment and to preserving its natural beauty for generations to come.
So, take your friend on a walk around campus. Show him or her the Tree Tour and explain even though one tree might not be much, Earth Day is an international project.
Everyone wants the world to be a better place, and this is a way to go about it.
Graduation is almost here, but I’m still not sure what I’m going to do after. Help!
Sincerely, What’s Next
Dear What’s Next
This is a time in life filled with change and uncertainty, from graduating to finding out your identity as an adult. It can be scary to look into the crystal ball and have the glass fog up on you.
When it comes to figuring out what to do next, there is going to be a lot of soul searching going on. Ask your friends, ask your parents, ask your professors and ask yourself one question: “What feels right for me?”
There may not be one easy answer to this question. It requires a lot of thought and a lot of planning. But, with the help of those close to you and a lot of introspection, you can at least put yourself on the right place on the roadmap.
You may not know the route now, but sometimes you need to find a place to go before you take a step down the road you need to go down. It may take a while, but when you find a destination, your trip becomes that much easier.
