This is just our country or all the world felt that earth is getting hot? Is the earth okay? is it sick? is it get fever? many people may think about this question, this phenomenal happen because of global warming. Global warming is the term used to describe a gradual increase in the average temperature of the Earth's atmosphere and its oceans, a change that is believed to be permanently changing the Earth's climate. 

Nowadays, the temperature of the earth is higher than 20 years ago, oxygen in the air is getting low and many pollute water that we consume today. Many animals don't have place to live if human being keep on cutting all trees and burning all the forest. All human cannot stop the global warming in the earth because there were too many people to make a change, but, somehow we can reduce the global warming by use some techniques.

The very first and also simple way to do for all people in the world is 3R. 3R is stand for Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle, and it Is the simple way to reduce global warming. With this techniques people can do this even a kids can do that, because great movements start from little change. If we are a people use a vehicle to go to work or school, we can reduce carbon emission by use a public transportation and it not make a traffic jam, that what we call as a reduce techniques. We can also reuse a thing like plastic bag, because we can reduce a plastic uses and nowadays, many market and also some store which sale a reuse plastic bag, it is a great movement to reduce plastic uses. The last thing, we can recycle a plastic for example a mineral bottle, which we usually buy, bottle can be recycle and make another thing, so it is a good habit for people to recycle it than throw it away.

Another technique is use a renewable energy or an alternative energy. Alternative energy mean a energy which can renewable like sunlight, water, and also wind. In 1888, a scientist from Russia named Aleksandr Stoletov built and patented the first true solar cell. In 1891, Baltimore inventor Clarence Kemp patented the first commercial solar water heater. 

In 1905 solar power was brought into the world's spotlight when famed physicist Albert Einstein published a paper on the photoelectric effect and how light packets carry energy. And in about 20 centuries, many houses and cars use the energy. In US, most of houses use a solar cell even it is just a small one, but it can make a great energy for their home. If we use solar panel, we can reduce a small electric energy and save our money.

Human is the cause and also solution to global warming, we cannot stop the time, likewise the global warming, but there is a changed to reduce it by a small change, so our child and grandchild can see how beautiful side of this earth, because a small movement can make a greater change. "Just as we cannot blame others for destroying the environment, so we cannot look to others to protect the environment. Responsibility for both begins at home.Paul Griss, The Daily Planet
