Pollution is increasing at an alarming rate. Waste from products that help create a world of convenience for us is creating havoc in our environment, especially when that waste enters our water stream. Keep in mind the pollution of a water source affects wildlife and plants, as well as our drinking water. Is the convenience worth the devastation? Find an article in the St. Petersburg Times that focuses on pollution. Analyze the cause and effect elements of the article. Create a chart showing these and exploring the ideas presented. Next, write an editorial or letter to the editor in which you cite specific examples from the article. Take a stand on the issue presented, and make your article as persuasive as possible. Post your editorial or letter here on the NIE Blogging Zone.
