Ilina: But before we start we will give you some background on Earth Day!
Karen: John McConnell was the man who thought of the famous Earth Day.
Kentaro: And even though the idea was thought of in 1962, first Earth Day was held on April 22, 1970.
Karen: Earth day was a day to celebrate the earth and to remind us humans to keep the planet clean.
Derick: Now we will start our presentation...

Part 2: Pollutions affect

Derick: Have you ever wondered why car exhaust smells so bad or why sunsets are caused?
Ilina: Well there are many reasons for this...
Karen: The most common reason is pollution!!
Kentaro: Pollution harms both the human body and the animals around them.
Derick: Plants are also affected by this terrible process.

Part 3: Plants

Ilina: Ozone molecules block the breathing holes in plants....
Karen: So they can't grow.
Kentaro: OMG!! Plants are very important to us! They supply us with oxygen!
Karen: If we don't help them we will die!

Part 4: Animals and Humans

Derick: Pollution can cause many human diseases..
Ilina: Including respiratory disease and cardiovascular disease.
Karen: Ahem
Derick: oh yeah, I forgot....animals are also harmed by pollution.
Kentaro: Yes, oil spills in the ocean can kill millions of fish.
Derick: Pollution also kills many land animals because it affects their lungs.
Karen: How sad!

Part 5:The Sunset!

Ilina: Have you ever wondered what causes the sunset to vary in colors?
Karen: Yeah...
Kentaro: Why is that?
Derick: When ash, soot, etc is injected into the air by various events it changes the color of the sunset, this process is called the Mie Scattering.

Part 6:Buildings

Ilina: Hey guess what?
Karen: What?
Ilina: If we don't stop polluting then buildings will deteriorate!
Derick: Whoa thats freaky.
Karen: Yeah, it is.
Kentaro: I wonder why buildings will get damaged....
Derick:Hmmmm...
Karen: I think acid rain harms buildings by burning the outer material.
Ilina: Pollution not only exists outside building but also inside!
Kentaro: Really??
Derick: Chemicals in the air inside buildings harm humans as much as pollution harms them outside!
Kentaro: What are some of the toxins inside buildings that affect humans?
Karen: Well, there is tobacco, heating appliances and vapors.


Part 7: Conclusion

Derick: Well now you know all the horrid things that pollution does.
Ilina : And we hope that you help this planet.
Karen: For both animal and plants!
Kentaro: Together we can Save the Earth!
