Earth's Largest Mangrove Forest Is In Danger 29 July 2016

     I live in a town with one of the highest amounts of pollen in the US. Obviously this means there are a lot of trees, so I came to enjoy the hundred or more year old trees in my neighborhood. Now hearing about the largest mangrove forest in the entire world, destroyed and polluted for just two coal fired power plants, makes me wonder: Why?

Two Stroke Engines 7 July 2016

     A couple days ago I was playing basketball on my street when a motorbike louder than a car came blasting up my hill. It smelt awful and it must have took 10 minutes before the smell finally passed. My neighbor yelled from across the street "Smell bad?".

I stopped shooting hoops and started to research about two stroke engines, I soon found out there was an alternative called a four stroke engine.

The Biggest Cause of Climate Change That Nobody Talks About 2 June 2016

Why?

Have you ever read the “Wait! Don’t bite into that burger!” article? It’s real short; one of our first articles. It is actually the only article we’ve written about animal agriculture, and it’s ten short sentences long. This is how much many environmental organizations care about animal agriculture, which is crazy. I just watched a documentary about animal agriculture, and this is insane: animal agriculture accounts for 51% of all greenhouse gas emissions. Let me say that again: 51%. And nobody has said a word. Why? Wouldn’t this be all over the headlines. Why are only a small fraction of environmental organizations focused on the leading cause of climate change? And what are the other impacts of the meat/dairy industry that society has been hiding?

My Corvallis Youth Speech 26 May 2016

     Jeremy and I got the chance to speak in Corvallis Oregon tomorrow infront of youth to inspire them, teach them about climate change, and show them that age is no disability. Keep in mind these do go with slides and is a speech so I'm not saying it word for word. Hope you enjoy.

My Current Event Speech 4 May 2016

     For my current event speech in block I chose to do it on the Paris Agreement that recently got signed on April 22nd. I thought I'd share the speech I gave to my school and (keep in mind this went along with a power point), so here it is:
