I can aready seethe destruction +ro# this and #aybe other $eo$e see it to but the trees are dyin-a around this area2 I a# a#ost $ositive that the soi is $outed and it is ony a #atter o+ ti#e be+ore it -ets into our water syste#. ;ut that is ony scratchin- at the sur+ace o+ it. The destruction that is bein- caused because o+ carbon e#issions. Our $anet is heatin- u$ rather $eo$e want to beieve it is because o+ hu#an activity or not thete#$erature is risin-2 and it is causin- destruction everywhere. The $ace it is hittin- the hardest is our ocean. The ocean ta0es in the #ost carbon dioxide and it is creatin- our ocean to beco#e acidi+ied and without a heathy ocean i+e wi not continue on our $anet. <.The Lorax says that the Once4er is -reedy. Ereed is de+ined as a se+ish desire +or +ood2 #oney2 or $ossessions over and above what one needs. hat are so#e o+ the ways that the Once4er $roved his -reed3 9e says2 FI bi--ered #y #oney which every needs .F Is it true that everyone needs #oney3 9ow #uch #oney do $eo$e need3 Is it ri-ht to #a0e a ton o+ #oney whie destroyin- the environ#ent3 I hate #oney Aust +or this reason it is #a0in- $eo$e bind to what is reay -oin- on in our word. Ereed is the worst thin- when it co#es to #oney because everyone -ets -reedy with their #oney to so#e $oint. ost $eo$e wi not -ive away their #oney or share it because they thin0 they need it +or the#seves.
