The cientifics said "the planet is going to evolted in flame of fire in a little time" but I think is will in more time.
My opinion is, when it happened the humans will safe in another planet because will they got a spaceship.
If the people take hear the world, the world is going to save and the humans can live happy.

I think that greenpeace is the only asociation who really helps the nature. If the people dont have concient about the enviroment, the world in the future is going to desappear.
Each year is more contaminated.
The people drop the papers on the floor, and to the rivers.
The change has to start in each one of us...

the climate will be hottest in the future than now.If we throw rubbish on the water, it will be contaminated. And if it´s contaminated, wo won't have any of it to drink. If we feel the trees, our planet will be all water. The people have to be moderate using things that contaminate the planet.

My five ideas about the future are:

☻ People will kill to themselves by a glass of water.
☻ There will be more nuclear wars.
☻ We will live within a huge bubble because the air is going to contaminate still more.
☻ The world will be duplicate for investigation intentions.
☻ The machines have already done everything. Are we going to dominate by them?
