Green Industry 2 Many things have happened throughout the years that is making us question what will happen to our planet Earth, and what can we do to change it. Over the years we have been going through climate changes. Theses changes it brought to our attention in finding solutions to solve this or to slow it down. Humans are depleting natural resources and we have not cared about how we are damaging our planet. Instead, we have come to a conclusion that our planet is able to heal itself with the ability to renew its natural resources, and don’t think of the actual consequences. In reality once the natural resources are used up they will not come back. Therefore, we have to come up with ideas to help our planet but still fulfill our needs. Until recent years we have started to care how we have hurt the Earth and how we are using up our natural resources that we need to survive. We need to start changing our way of life that will help us slow down what we have cause for so many years to our planet. This is where the Green Industry began as a solution to the damage being done to our planet. In the sixteen years I have lived in Iowa there has been climate change especially during winter season. Do to that when I just moved to Iowa I remember that during winter we had more snow and not as cold as the most recent winters. As years passed by I noticed that it would snow later on and sometimes we would not have a lot of snow. Like this winter it started to snow later and not a lot.

Before they were not as hot unlike today the summers get really high temperatures. The high temperatures causes droughts which affect crops. For example, on August 2012 drought extended to over 70 percent of the United States. In addition, the government declared 33 states as disaster counties. Even in the beginning in 2013 drought still affected 60 percent of the United States (National Geographic Society). I remember one year here in Storm
Green Industry 3 Lake, Iowa where I live. The drought was really bad that there wasn’t enough water to fill the lake. People were able to walk in the lake a few feet away from the shoreline.

Therefore, people have started going green as a way to solve the problem. Going green means that people are trying to recycle, reduce pollution, and trying to
