                          About Earth

 

The sun produces so much heat that it only takes a few hours to raise the temperature of the earth surface.
The sun raises in the east and the sun sets in the west.

the earth is like a giant merry-go-round the earth spins or rotation was caused by forces during its creation of giant clouds of dust and gas slowly over many millions of years.
Under the force of its own gravity forming a small mass as it grew larger and larger so did the force of gravity.

Eventually the sun became hotter and brighter the remaining gas and dust found in the solar-system were blown away. The suns powerful steller winds cleaned out the solar-system meaning that the earth could not grow any bigger.

Earth continues to rotate to this day.

                                           Pacific Island Cover in Plasic


Scientists say this is the worst case of plasic pollution in the world. They found 38 million items of plastic. "That is a lot of rubbish" on Henderson island in the south pacific.
It is carried there by the ocean currents the island is uninhabited.
Australian resarcher Jennifer Lavers said the island is the hightest density of plastic rubbish in the world.
They calculated there were 671.6 items per square metre on the beaches with about 68 percent of the rubbish buried less than 10 centimetres in the sand. Each day 17 to 268 new items get washed up on a 10 metre section of the beach.
Scicentist said the finding of the plastic was a wakeup call to the world and as grave a threat to humanity as climate change.
Annual production of plastic has increased from 1.7m tonnes in 1995 to 311m tonnes in 2014.


My opinion:
That is a crasy amount of rubbish to be on a beach. That would take alot of people to clean it up quickly.
People need to be more careful about where they put there rubbish and to think about the enivoment.

                 glass bottom swimming pool

 

In Texas there is a swimming pool that is 150m meters high.

Dubbed the "sky pool" the pool sits on the 42nd floor of the Market Square Tower and the pool extends three meters over the side of the building "that is a long way".
You can go swimming in the sky pool. But it will set you back alot of money, it costs ($1805) US money thats about ($2660) in New Zealand money "that is alot of money i think".

my thoughts are:  If i was in the swimming pool i would feel a bit scared because 150m meters is very high and also with the glass bottom it would be weird that you could see down at the cars and people on the busy road.

                              The Cody Poem
                                   Inspired by  'The Iain Sharp Poem'



Cody is a cheetah sprinting through the tall grass. 

Cody is a drone flying high in the sky.

Cody is a carrot growing taller and taller every day.

Whenever I look at Cody. Cody smiles back at me.

It's funny!

Cody is a kitten pouncing on high ledges.

Cody is an oak wood tree standing tall.


Cody is a rainbow at the ski field. 

Look there and there! 
Bits of fun everywhere from class to class.
I touch them with outstretched hands.
They might be Cody.

               severe flooding in chile


Rainstorms and landslides have contaminated a major river forcing the authorities to cut off drinking water to at least four million people in Chile a country of South America.

"that's a lot of people without water"

 The water supply would be cut to the city until it comes clear.

Three people have been killed and 19 are missing as the rivers overflowed and the bridges were washed away.

Some of the peoples homes were filled with mud and sludge as the river went through them. Some of the shops have run out of bottled water and the supermarkets reported scuffles between people eager to stock up. Some of the restaurants and schools were ordered to stay closed

The Governor Claudio Orrego said the weather conditions in the mountains were very bad near Santiago the capital of Chile. 


My throughts/feelings : 

As you might know from the news in our own country New Zealand we have  had a bad flooding in Auckland, Northland and Coromandel ,320 homes in Auckland were in waist deep in water.

                                        Waitangi day 2017




On the 6 of February many New Zealand's went to Waitangi to celebrate Waitangi day and there was over 20 000 people their.

There was 70 year old waka with 80 paddles and 55 passengers and there was 150 markets and some were even playing music in the markets.

I wonder if the treaty will go on forever.
