One of them our contribution as educated generation to take a part for nature eternality is use public transportation. Why? By this habit, we can take a part to reduce pollution. It’s mean we participate to save the earth from global warming.

You know about global warming, aren’t? Pollution is cause this disaster and this disaster can make we die, because abnormally increase of temperature. You know from where that cause appear? Industry activities are biggest contributor, and the second is from emission of transportation.

This second cause which will we discuss. Who don’t know transportation? Go to school, office, shopping at mall and other place, always we are helped by it. Conscious or not, this activity was contributed emission for earth disaster. It can more horrible if we prefer use personal transportation (such as motorcycle, car) than public transportation.

my friends using “angkot”

Many advantage if we use public service. First, of course we will participate to reducing pollution. Public transportation have more space for many people. If we prefer to use personal transportation, then large amount of pollution produced. Second, not less important than the first, use public transportation will decrease a traffic jam.

Beside use public service, many better way, which we can do in our habit. For example, if distance between school and home is near, then don’t shy for use bicycle, or just walk for shorter distance. Not only save the nature, but also save our health.

Therefore do many little things for nature, because everything we do, it most useful for better world. Don’t forget : “Each one of you is part of this life, this world!”.

    I’m author and environmental consultant John Banta. I am glad to hear about your commitment to our environment.

    I have started a new blog. Each day for the next year I’m going to be posting a new tip for becoming an environmental steward for our home and planet. It will take about one minute a day to learn about that day’s goal. If it’s something you’re already on board with then that’s great, but if not – plan on spending another 5 minutes learning more about the objective and ten minutes making it so. That’s why I call it 1:5:10:365.

    This week I am beginning by taking stock of our energy and resource profile. I’m hoping everyone will make a minimum commitment to spend one minute a day considering something new they can do to help.

    Thanks for doing your part.

    i agree with you, Luqman,,,

    i prefer use public transportation than my dad’s motorcycle.

    even though is faster, i think if i use public transportation it can decrease the vehicle on street so that there is ( i hope) no traffic jam.

    hahaha,,, you go, angkot!

    I strongly agree with all of you.
    Actually I also prefer use public transportation.
    Sometime people use their motorcycle because they think that the cost is very expensive totally (including me if I go to the market with my family). So it will become a tragedy of commons when all of us think like that. I hope the government can provide cheap and good public transportation or they can provide a good infrastructure for the user of bicycle. Everyday I go to my office by train eventhough the performance is not enough goood. Hope we can give contribution for improvement of our environment in order to reduce the climate change. Thank you very much for all of your opinion.
