Give up Your Cars and Start Walking!

This is the first in a series of green eco-friendly articles written by students at Rupert House School.

As the citizens of Henley and around the world leave the lights on, consequences occur.

The first consequence is that we are using up scarce fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas. In later life, we will eventually run out of these as sources of fuel.  That’s why everyone needs to use renewable energy like solar panels, wind power, water energy and more.  The other consequence is that power stations give off carbon dioxide which contributes to global warming and kills trees.

Global warming affects the life of plants, animals and our entire planet Earth.  We can stop this by changing over to using renewable energy such as water, wind and solar power.  Electric cars now exist and we need to get as many non-electric cars off the roads.  We can help by starting to walk or use public transport whenever possible. Next term Rupert House are going to have a ‘walk to school’ day, what are you going to do?
