2.Website: Save The Arctic

Introduction
"We need to protect the Arctic waters from oil drilling and unsustainable fishing" "The Arctic ice we all depend on is rapidly disappearing." In the last 30 years, we?ve lost as much as three-quarters of the floating sea ice cover at the top of the world. The volume of that sea ice measured by satellites in the summer, when it reaches its smallest, has shrunk so fast that scientists say it?s now in a ?death spiral?. 
For over 800,000 years, ice has been a permanent feature of the Arctic Ocean. It?s melting because of our use of fossil fuel energy, and in the near future it could be ice free for the first time since humans walked on the Earth. This would be not only devastating for the people, polar bears, narwhals, walruses and other species that live there - but for the rest of us too. 
The ice at the top of the world reflects much of the sun?s heat back into space and keeps our whole planet cool, stabilizing the weather systems that we depend on to grow our food. Protecting the ice means protecting us all. To save the Arctic, we have to act today. 
I find this site very interesting as this site had attracted the attention of millions of people around the world which resulted in the oil companies leaving the Arctic forever. Right now they are focusing on establishing strong car efficiency regulations in the EU could save 17.3 billion barrels of oil by 2040

Introduction
Dear All, I created the Green Team Indonesia and we have a blog to capture the stories of our activities as well as sharing the word of kindness to the environment and people in need. Environment is not all about garbage and stuffs, but environment is also about humans, animal, plants and any living things around us. The Green Team Indonesia has a motto that 'Together, hand-in-hand we can balance the world'. Thank you for this opportunity to share with you about my blog. 
This blog is managed and written by grade 3 to grade 7 students: my sister, my best friends and I myself. There many stories we wrote, such as: "Swimming with the Sharks", "How to Stay Healthy as a Kid", "Traditional Market", "Spread the word of kindness through parcels" and many more. We hope that by sharing our activities and thoughts around the world, we could be hand-in-hand with anybody in other part of the world to balance our beautiful world.

Introduction
I like this website founded by Mr. Balraj Arpit. I have a number of reasons why. 
1. Targeted to the youths Youths are the backbone for any environmental actions. Founders know that and the website motivates the youths towards the environmental actions saying, 'People are so afraid to die that they never begin to live.' 
2. Believing in the change This website has listed a number of activities like green projects and believes in making change. 
3. Responding to the website visitors and answer seekers unlikely so many other environmental websites it responds to your curiosity and desire to get involved as soon as possible. 
4. Focusing on greening the world Above all, this website is devoted to the greenery and environmental conservation. This is what we need today in the era of climate change and disasters.
