The newest tablets, iPhones, Galaxy phones, window phones, computers, TVs , games systems or how many likes one of our selfies got, how many followers or friends one has on social media are things that some people are worried about the most. Those are becoming factors of our destruction. The invention of the airplane, the car, skyscrapers, mansions, roads, casinos, boats, tablets, phones, human rights, politics, freedom; are those things really worth fighting for?

We don’t see pollution as a treat because “much of our country’s prosperity and growth has been colorfully carbon based” (Fineman223). As a country we should learn from our mistakes and take an action to prevent our down fall.
