U.S. Population Surpasses 300 Million!

This week's topic has to do with the news topic about the U.S. population reaching 300,000,000. After a discussion on the effects of a population on economics, jobs, energy, food, and pollution, the students reflected on how they feel the population growth effects them, the U.S., and the world.

The way this effects me is that my life might end sooner than I expect because of my environment. It effects the U.S. because we will be getting droughts [climate and weather changes from global warming - bjb] and get skin cancer more easily. We've created all of these things that hurt the world and we complain, but we take no real steps to saving the future of this world. We're like junkies if you think about it. MS
