352. SUNNY-SIDE UP

SUNNY-SIDE UP

Si quieres pedir un huevo frito en los Estados Unidos, se dice “Sunny-side up" please.
SUNNY-SIDE UP
Sunny” significa soleado, y “side”, lado. Así que literalmente sería: “El lado soleado arriba”
One day it will be normal to fry sunny-side up eggs in the street because it will be so hot to do it.
Our planet Earth is getting hotter and hotter because of global warming.
If global warming continues because industrialized countries don´t give a shit, or don´t reach an agreement to do something about this serious problem, then the temperature of our planet will increase so much that people will not be able to go outside into the street…..unless they want to risk turning into a sunny-side up egg.
Apart from not being able to walk outside, it will also be impossible to go to the beach, unless you want to fry like an egg and burn yourself to death.
The effects on life as we know it will be devastating.
Global warming is real and is caused by the burning of fossil fuels which pump carbon dioxide, methane and other greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere.
SUNNY-SIDE UP

Ice is melting in both polar ice caps and mountain glaciers.
SUNNY-SIDE UP
Lakes and seas are warming rapidly.
As ice melts, the ocean levels rise and coastal cities will probably disappear.
The hottest summer in history was this year in 2015….and it´s logical to think that it will be hotter in the years to come.
Extreme weather, such as tornados, hurricanes, severe snowstorms and droughts are the effects of global warming.
SUNNY-SIDE UP
Drought

Carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas produced by cars, trucks busses and airplanes, is the main pollutant that is warming our planet Earth.
Smog floating over cities is the most familiar and obvious form of air pollution.
SUNNY-SIDE UP
Smog over Madrid

The burning of fossil fuels such as gasoline and natural gasses are poisoning our planet and people.
In cities such as Peking, Los Angeles and Madrid, people are breathing toxic gasses.
Short-tern effects on people are irritation to the eyes, nose and throat, and upper respiratory infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia, headaches, nausea, and allergic reactions.
This short term air pollution can aggravate the conditions of people who suffer from asthma and emphysema.
Long term health effects can include chronic respiratory disease, lung cancer, heart disease, brain damage and liver or kidneys problems.
Let´s hope that the 2015 United Nations Climate conference will come to a universal agreement on global warming and stop the devastating consequences which are having a disastrous effect on our planet Earth……..before it´s too late.
