WHAT CAN WE DO TO SOLVE CLIMATE CHANGE?

#Opinion by J. MANUEL RUIZ #BTO2C
It is well-known that climate change is one of the greatest environmental threats the planet is facing. However, what do people do about it?

Firstly, I believe that government must impose laws to reduce pollution. For example, if public transports were cheaper or free, people wouldn’t use their own cars or motorbikes, so pollution would be reduced a lot. In addition, there should be more laws to control the emissions of toxic gases from factories. In my opinión, we have the necessary technology to make factories stop polluting.

Furthermore, I think that we should recycle more, and we have to start using renewable energy sources. These sources are more effective than nowadays’ ones, and they will help to reduce global warming.

On the whole, I think that climate change is a more serious problem than people believe, and we have to solve it from now.

SMALL TOWNS OR BIG CITIES?

Small town life is preferable for some people, while others prefer to live in large cities. Which of these would you prefer to live and why?

It is well-known that the majority of people would like to live in large cities, but they have to live in small towns because of their economic situation. Nevertheless, there are people that like to live in small towns.

Firstly, I believe that living in a large city is better than living in a small town, as in a large city, there are more things and places to visit, to hang out and to have fun; for example, cinemas, bowling, game centre, monuments, theme parks, etc.

Moreover, if you live in a small town, you do not have the same opportunities as if you live in a big city where you can reach the newest technologies easily. That is why big cities have more population than other cities.

All in all, I am absolutely convinced that I prefer to live in  a big city rather than in a small town because you have less difficulties to reach technology and to improve your lifestyle.

THE IMPORTANCE OF DONATING

By MARÍA ARIZA #BTO2A


One more year, Spain has surpassed the leadership number of transplants, and this is demonstrated by the latest data presented by the National Transplant Organization. We have more than twice as many donors as the average of European countries, which places us in one of the most generous countries in the world. 

No matter what your age is: you can be an organ donor, helping both young and old people, always in order to improve their way of life. However, minors who make this decision must consult with their legal tutors, as they must authorize it. In addition, you must be informed of all types of donations that exist, such as kidney, liver, lung, heart, pancreas, blood ..., performing in the first place those that are scarce.

As a conclusion, we should all be aware of the satisfaction of knowing that other people’s life is being improved with this gesture.

DEATH PENALTY: YES OR NO?

By JAIME MUÑOZ #BTO2A
Nowadays, death penalty is a very controversial topic.

There are still 58 countries where this penalty remains. However, some people are against it. Personally, I believe that death row shouldn't be legal; I think that it isn't ethical considering that we shouldn't teach people not to kill by killing them.

Furthermore , it can be possible to sentence somebody to death who isn't guilty; in fact, it has already happened.

On the whole, I think everybody should have the right to live although they are criminals. If I had to make a choice, I would establish life imprisonment sentences as the biggest legal punishment, with those people alive staying in a prison for their lifetimes.
I truly believe that is the fairest thing to do.

IS CLIMATE CHANGE AS BAD AS PEOPLE SAY?

#Opinion by DANIEL VÁZQUEZ #BTO2C @safasanluis
Nowadays, the effects and the problems produced by climate change are evident. But some people doubt if it’s as dangerous as it seems to be. Let’s check some real facts to make those people open their eyes.

Firstly, there are scientific studies which show that the temperature is rising a bit more every year, and so does the level of oceans and the number of illnesses produced by the sun.

On the other hand, some animals and plants are disappearing because their ecosystems are being destroyed by the climate change. For example, the polar bear might disappear in a few years if we don’t do anything to try to stop this problem, because the poles are melting due to the rise of temperatures.

To sum up, I think that we must pay more attention to climate change, because it’s killing our planet slowly, and almost nobody seems to care about it.

CONSUMERISM


#Opinion by

#BTO1D @SAFASanLuis

Nowadays, economic systems put within reach of people all kinds of consumer products, from the most basic to the most rare. Consume as a concept does not refer to anything evil or harmful. We can define it as the simple activity of consuming to satisfy needs or wishes.

FAO is the part of the United Nations which is responsible of the food of the world. The United Nations has given details about the number of people who die because of hunger, which are more than 35.000.000 people. In the world, there are 7.000.000.000 people, and food is made for 12.000.000.000 people. With these numbers, we realize that we throw away 5.000.000.000 aliments. These numbers grow every day, and this can not continue happening. This happens because we live in a society that only focuses on buying things we do not need in our lives. For example, more clothing, toys….

The solution to this problem is a responsible consumption, donating clothes that we can not wear, do not throwing food, and not buying more than we need. For example, do not buy the 3x2 when we really need one.
