Most of the people are concerned about the things that have to do with their personal interest, things which carry a selfish thought. It is precisely this attitude that causes that problems continue to expand globally, since most of us look the other way without even showing the slightest interest.

When we talk about global problems we refer to things that affect everyone in the world, things often happen to people who have created or helped to prepare their creation and growth.

For this reason and to verify this theory of selfish thought, I choose this topic with the aim of showing that people contribute greatly to the development of this phenomenon, and what is even worse, in many people sometimes our actions are made knowing why we do it, but still we do not care to avoid it, we do not consider the possible consequences, and not trying to apply to fix that.

This attitude of people towards this kind of problem angers me because I’m sure they care about more things like: what to wear, that hair done, or going crazy for not having coverage on their phone. But the really sad thing is that thousands of people and species die each day due to this problem and what is even worse this is rising everyday.

Thus, the idea of this work is to understand step by step what is global warming, in case anyone does not know or do not want to know,we are just going to see what are the greenhouse gases. Later we will observe the causes that have generated this problem where you can see that humans had generated more negative causes for the planet than the planet itself of natural causes.

Even still perplexed after watching the causes of global warming we will deepen with the bad consequences that encompasses the planet with this monster called global warming (this point will be what we will be focused on). But every great problem has a number of solutions that each of us can carry out. Finally, as in every good work we will see a conclusion which will match anything we have seen before.

The planet is warming, from North Pole to South Pole, and everywhere in between. Globally, the mercury is already up more than 1 degree Fahrenheit (0.8 degree Celsius), and even more in sensitive polar regions. And the effects of rising temperatures aren’t waiting for some far-flung future. They’re happening right now. Signs are appearing all over, and some of them are surprising. The heat is not only melting glaciers and sea ice, it’s also shifting precipitation patterns and setting animals on the move.(13)

Global warming is caused by greenhouse gases caused by industrialized societies. The planet is contaminated by gases from factories, used aerosols, fumes from cars and so on. Human beings accelerate this process every day, perhaps without realizing or not wanting to realize the destruction of our planet.

As seen in this study almost 90% of the causes of global warming have been produced by humans, only thinking it irritates me. I do not understand how they continue to ignore these facts and try somehow to reduce this impact.

The reality of global warming is a danger whose effects are already visible in our society of today as the accelerated extinction of species, rising sea levels and the progressive melting of the polar caps. In the last decade it is seen the world collapses with increasing temperature, the hottest summers living with drought, or conversely heavy rains that threaten the lives of people, the outlook for the future is not encouraging Scientists who predict more and more abrupt changes. (14)

The crisis of climate change due to global warming is a serious threat that human beings have never experienced before. It is time for society and especially children and young people to become aware of the importance of being able to act and mobilize a huge investment of resources such as money, technology and human energy, according to the possibilities that everyone can contribute. Only through a rapid transition from fossil fuels to alternative energy sources (16) and other methods such as forest restoration, we can stop the accumulation of greenhouse gases that threatens the entire society.

People will become aware of this very serious problem, as they know it, so it is important to conduct information campaigns and how they can help. Everyone from home has the power to do something however minimal . We must think not only at us and look for the good of future generations, for that reason we are obliged to inform you that there is this, big problem, as well as some kind of solutions that can bring in as much as possible.

I personally believe, that as people, we have helped to feed this monster as global warming, now it is time to take action to try to solve this problem. To do this we must try to perform all possible actions available to us to reduce this phenomenon. In this way we make the world better for the environment, animal species, flora and humans. I also hope and wish that this work will make many people reconsider and begin fighting as soon as possible the global warming. I do hope everybody understands that if something affects the planet or any living being or human being it also affects us and we will have to help in whatever way, as we would like someone else help us. Since humans have been able to destroy their own planet, it is man himself who will now help the planet get back to what it was.

There is no single solution to global warming, which is primarily a problem of too much heat-trapping carbon dioxide (CO2), methane and nitrous oxide in the atmosphere.  The technologies and approaches outlined below are all needed to bring down the emissions of these gases by at least 80 percent by mid-century.

Boosting energy efficiency: The energy used to power, heat, and cool our homes, businesses, and industries is the single largest contributor to global warming. Energy efficiency technologies allow us to use less energy to get the same—or higher—level of production, service, and comfort. This approach has vast potential to save both energy and money, and can be deployed quickly.

Greening transportation: The transportation sector’s emissions have increased at a faster rate than any other energy-using sector over the past decade. A variety of solutions are at hand, including improving efficiency (miles per gallon) in all modes of transport, switching to low-carbon fuels, and reducing vehicle miles traveled through smart growth and more efficient mass transportation systems.

Revving up renewables: Renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, geothermal and bioenergy are available around the world. Multiple studies have shown that renewable energy has the technical potential to meet the vast majority of our energy needs. Renewable technologies can be deployed quickly, are increasingly cost-effective, and create jobs while reducing pollution.

Phasing out fossil fuel electricity: Dramatically reducing our use of fossil fuels—especially carbon-intensive coal—is essential to tackle climate change. There are many ways to begin this process. Key action steps include: not building any new coal-burning power plants, initiating a phased shutdown of coal plants starting with the oldest and dirtiest, and capturing and storing carbon emissions from power plants. While it may sound like science fiction, the technology exists to store carbon emissions underground. The technology has not been deployed on a large scale or proven to be safe and permanent, but it has been demonstrated in other contexts such as oil and natural gas recovery. Demonstration projects to test the viability and costs of this technology for power plant emissions are worth pursuing.

Managing forests and agriculture: Taken together, tropical deforestation and emissions from agriculture represent nearly 30 percent of the world’s heat-trapping emissions. We can fight global warming by reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation and by making our food production practices more sustainable.

Exploring nuclear: Because nuclear power results in few global warming emissions, an increased share of nuclear power in the energy mix could help reduce global warming—but nuclear technology poses serious threats to our security and, as the accident at the Fukushima Diaichi plant in Japan illustrates to our health and the environment as well.

Developing and deploying new low-carbon and zero-carbon technologies: Research into and development of the next generation of low-carbon technologies will be critical to deep mid-century reductions in global emissions. Current research on battery technology, new materials for solar cells, harnessing energy from novel sources like bacteria and algae, and other innovative areas could provide important breakthroughs.

Ensuring sustainable development: The countries of the world—from the most to the least developed—vary dramatically in their contributions to the problem of climate change and in their responsibilities and capacities to confront it. A successful global compact on climate change must include financial assistance from richer countries to poorer countries to help make the transition to low-carbon development pathways and to help adapt to the impacts of climate change.

Adapting to changes already underway: As the Climate Hot Map demonstrates, the impacts of a warming world are already being felt by people around the globe. If climate change continues unchecked, these impacts are almost certain to get worse. From sea level rise to heat waves, from extreme weather to disease outbreaks, each unique challenge requires locally-suitable solutions to prepare for and respond to the impacts of global warming. Unfortunately, those who will be hit hardest and first by the impacts of a changing climate are likely to be the poor and vulnerable, especially those in the least developed countries. Developed countries must take a leadership role in providing financial and technical help for adaptation. (10)

Here are some really small steps to get closer to a peaceful earth, which we can do since today.

1. Plant a tree

2. Replace a regular incandescent light bulb with a compact fluorescent light bulb

3. Clean or replace filters on your furnace and air conditioner

4. Choose energy efficient appliances when making new purchases

5. Do not leave appliances on standby

6. Move your fridge and freezer

7. At home, replace your old single-glazed windows with double-glazing you can even save more than 70% of the energy lost

8. Cover your pots while cooking: Even better are pressure cookers and steamers: they can save around 70%!

9. Use the washing machine or dishwasher only when they are full

10.Take a shower instead of a bath: (a shower takes up to four times less energy than a bath).

11.Cut down on your polythene usage

12.Reduce the number of miles you drive by walking, biking, carpooling or taking mass transit wherever possible

13.Think before you buy (one bottle of 1.5l requires less energy and produces less waste than three bottles of 0.5l)

14.Spread awareness & Encourage others

15.Encourage the switch to renewable energy

16. Protect and conserve forest worldwide

17. Change your traveling and driving style

18. Drive carefully and do not waste fuel

19 .Check your tires weekly to make sure they’re properly inflated

Consequences of Global Warming

Posted on diciembre 11th, 2011 in Second Paper by andogo

Rising sea levels, a result of water molecules expanding in warmer temperatures, increased precipitation, and the melting of mountain glaciers. Because all bodies of water have varying shapes and ocean water tends to “swell” differently depending on its starting temperature, the change in sea level is not uniform over the surface of the Earth. In the 20th century alone, sea levels rose 0.17 meters predictions for the next century range anywhere from 0.18 to 0.59 meters. While smaller projections would likely have only relatively modest impacts, the higher projections could have dramatic effects on low-lying coastal communities.

Currently, the Arctic summer sea ice is about half as thick as it was in 1950. Just like an ice cube melting in a glass of water, the melting Arctic sea ice does not contribute to sea-level rise, except for the expansion of seawater with increasing heat. However, melting Arctic sea ice may lead to global changes in ocean circulation. Water from melted ice forms a layer at the sea surface that is less dense than the underlying water since it is less salty, potentially preventing the pattern of deep ocean currents from rising to the surface. Additionally, melting sea ice speeds up the warming of the Arctic since water absorbs 80% of sunlight, about the same amount that the cover of sea ice used to reflect.

While the idea of swimming in a warmer ocean is pleasant to most human beings, increasing ocean temperatures could cause serious ecological damage. Approximately one quarter of the world’s coral reefs have died over the last few decades, a process directly tied to warming waters which weakens the coral animals.

An increase in global temperature will likely enhance the ability for severe weather, which could mean stronger and more frequent storms. Warmer temperatures cause more evaporation of water, which, as part of the water cycle eventually leads to increased precipitation and further increasing the potential for flooding.

Warmer winters mean that many deaths related to cold temperatures might be avoided and that the growing season will last longer, a possible upside to global warming. More people around the world die because of winter cold than because of summer heat. A decrease in winter deaths could offset a potential increase in summer heat-related deaths, or even lead to more lives saved as a result of the changed temperatures. With respect to longer growing seasons, there is already evidence in Europe that their growing season has been extended since the 1960s, with spring plants now blooming about 6 days earlier and fall colors coming 5 days later.

With drought affecting some regions and heat intensifying in the tropics, many areas will become unsuitable for agriculture. In tropical areas that are already dry and hot, the ability to harvest food will likely decrease even with small increases in warming. However, warmer temperatures and increased precipitation can also make previously marginal land more suitable for farming. Therefore, it is likely that, with a changing climate, a global change in the agricultural pattern will occur. Yet, it is unknown as to whether or not the increase in the usefulness of marginal lands will counterbalance an increase in drought and desertification.

In addition to potential environmental changes, the human health implications of increased global warming are very concerning. Extreme heat waves in 2003 and 2006 led to thousands of deaths in Europe, North America, and India and are likely to increase. We are also witnessing a renewed spread of diseases, likely to increase if temperatures continue to rise, including a spread of illnesses that were previously limited only to tropical areas.

Other species are also affected by global warming, most often by changes in migration patterns, shorter hibernation times, relocation to new areas, and extinction due to lack of adaptation. For example, many animals accustomed to living in the arctic regions, such as polar bears and penguins, have been forced further out of their native habitat in search of more accommodating habitat closer to the poles. Animals that migrate, such as birds and butterflies, have begun extending their migratory range closer to the poles, arriving sooner and departing later. (8)

In Summary:

Consequences of Global Warming On Health

Deadly Heat Wave: More frequent and severe heat waves will result in a greater number of heat-related deaths.

Bad Air, Allergy and Asthma: Global warming could increase smog pollution in some areas and intensify pollen allergies and asthma. Hotter conditions could also aggravate local air quality problems, already afflicting more than 500 million persons.

Infectious Disease and Food and Waterborne Illness Outbreaks: Warming temperatures, alternating periods of drought and deluges, and ecosystem disruption have contributed to more widespread outbreaks of infections like malaria, dengue fever, tick-borne encephalitis, and diarrheal illnesses. People living in poverty will be hardest hit by the global surge in infectious diseases

Dangerous Weather Events: A warmer atmosphere can hold — and dump — more moisture, contributing to more intense extreme weather events, which in turn put people’s lives at risk

Consequences of Global Warming On Weather Patterns

More Powerful and Dangerous Hurricanes: Warmer water in the oceans pumps more energy into tropical storms, making them stronger and potentially more destructive. Even with storms of the same intensity, future hurricanes will cause more damage as higher sea levels exacerbate storm surges, flooding, and erosion.

Drought and Wildfire: Warmer temperatures could increase the probability of drought. Greater evaporation, particularly during summer and fall, could exacerbate drought conditions and increase the risk of wildfires.

Intense Rainstorms: Warmer temperatures increase the energy of the climatic system and can lead to heavier rainfall in some areas. Scientists project that climate change will increase the frequency of heavy rainstorms, putting many communities at risk for devastation from floods.

Consequences of Global Warming On Wildlife

Ecosystem Shifts and Species Die-Off: Increasing global temperatures are expected to disrupt ecosystems, pushing to extinction those species that cannot adapt. The first comprehensive assessment of the extinction risk from global warming found that more than 1 million species could be obliterated by 2050 if the current trajectory continues.

Consequences of Global Warming On Glaciers and Sea Levels

Melting Glaciers, Early Ice Thaw: Rising global temperatures will speed the melting of glaciers and ice caps and cause early ice thaw on rivers and lakes. (9)

Human Contributions to Global Warming

Posted on diciembre 11th, 2011 in Second Paper by andogo

The major cause of global warming is the emission of green house gases like carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide etc into the atmosphere. The major source of carbon dioxide is the power plants. These power plants emit large amounts of carbon dioxide produced from burning of fossil fuels for the purpose of electricity generation. About twenty percent of carbon dioxide emitted in the atmosphere comes from burning of gasoline in the engines of the vehicles. This is true for most of the developed countries. Buildings, both commercial and residential represent a larger source of global warming pollution than cars and trucks.

Building of these structures require a lot of fuel to be burnt which emits a large amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Methane is more than 20 times as effectual as CO2 at entrapping heat in the atmosphere. Methane is obtained from resources such as rice paddies, bovine flatulence, bacteria in bogs and fossil fuel manufacture. When fields are flooded, anaerobic situation build up and the organic matter in the soil decays, releasing methane to the atmosphere. The main sources of nitrous oxide include nylon and nitric acid production, cars with catalytic converters, the use of fertilizers in agriculture and the burning of organic matter. Another cause of global warming is deforestation that is caused by cutting and burning of forests for the purpose of residence and industrialization. (5)

The greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming are produced through the burning of fossil fuels, like coal and oil, which are significant sources of the energy we use in everyday activities. The burning of fossil fuels, for example, helps produce the electricity needed for our homes to function. Unfortunately, the power plants that burn fossil fuels provide such a tremendous source of energy that they are also the largest source of greenhouse gases. In the U.S., the second largest source of greenhouse gases is automobiles.

Greenhouse gases are harmful to our environment not only because they increase the temperature of our planet, but because they are also a major source of air pollution. The burning of fossil fuels produces Carbon Dioxide, the major greenhouse gas, as well as other highly toxic pollutants such as Sulfur Dioxide, Nitrogen Dioxide, Ozone, and particulate matter. These gases cause very serious health hazards such as asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, heart diseases, among others. (6)

Since the Industrial Revolution, humans have been using fossil fuels to power machines. Now, nearly everything you consume, nearly every product you buy, and many of your daily activities, involve the use of fossil fuels. You contribute to global warming:

When You Drive or Fly

Every time you drive a car, carbon-rich auto exhaust enters the atmosphere. The use of jet fuel in plane travel also adds a great deal to your carbon footprint. (Though, cars contribute more per passenger mile in the long run). The transportation option that uses the least energy per passenger mile is clearly the bicycle. Automobiles (especially SUVs, light trucks, and minivans) use the most, followed by planes. Passenger trains, electric vehicles, and ships sit somewhere in the middle. Of course, the more energy used, the more greenhouse gases are emitted, the more humans cause global warming.

When You Eat Meat and Exotic Foods

The food industry, especially the meat industry, is one of the primary sources of greenhouse gases, according to some recent studies.

Eating food that is shipped long distances adds to greenhouse gas emissions. Consider the fact that the average food item you eat travels over 1000 miles from farm to fork. In addition, conventional agriculture uses massive amounts of petroleum-based fertilizers.

Eating beef and drinking milk also adds to greenhouse gases, since cows emit significant amounts of methane, a greenhouse gas even more potent than carbon. One of the best ways to cut your greenhouse gas emissions is by going vegetarian.

When You Use Electricity

Although some power generation is now being done with solar and wind energy, the chances are high that the electricity you use is generated from coal-burning power plants.

When You Move Into A New Development

If you decide to move into a new suburban development near the edge of town, you’re increasing the profits developers get from cutting down trees and paving over farm land. When farms and forests disappear, the land loses the ability to absorb carbon, and emissions from other activities have an even greater effect. (7)

Natural Causes

Posted on diciembre 11th, 2011 in Second Paper by andogo

Among the most common and most significant contributors to global warming is deforestation caused by forest fires. Fires are natural occurrences in many forests as it is nature’s way to clear up old growth to encourage new ones. It also helps fertilize sprouting and existing trees and plants. However, new trees take much time to grow large enough to absorb large quantities of carbon dioxide and produce sufficient oxygen. The fires also cause much carbon-filled smoke to rise from the forests to the atmosphere. Both results have dramatic effects on the rate at which global warming is currently occurring.

Oceans are also significant contributors to global warming as it naturally contains much polluting carbon due to the ecosystems they support. Studies have also shown that the top layers of oceans contain more pollution than the Earth’s atmosphere and much of that pollution rises.

Both the North and South Poles also contribute a lot to global warming. It is in those areas where permafrost contains large amounts of carbon that have frozen over time. Disturbances to these areas cause the permafrost to melt and release the pollutants into the atmosphere. Keep in mind that the carbon held within these lands have been out of the carbon cycle for thousands of years and so releasing them would cause an imbalance to natural processes. Gases, including carbon dioxide and methane, are suddenly released at volumes nature isn’t prepared for. (3)

On the other hand, other natural causes can be:

1. The sun spots are exploding -raising the heat

2. Large eruptions in the major volcanoes on the earth – increasing gases and damaging plants

3. The orbit the Earth takes has changed – movement to or from the sun

4. The Earth is different when compared to how it sits near the sun -changes the temperature up or down

5. Meteors caused explosions as they made contact with the Earth. (4)

Source: ONLINE©Natural Resources Defense Council by NRDC. [visited 28.Nov. 2011]

As the world evolves, changes in the earth’s environment affect the climate in various ways.  For example, explosions on the sun generate even more heat than the sun normally gives off and some of this heat makes it to the earth causing rising temperatures. Volcanic eruptions on Earth can cause temperatures to decrease, because the smoke and gases given off can act like an umbrella shade and prevent sunlight from passing through the atmosphere.  Any slight change in the earth’s orbit could cause the earth to move closer or farther away from the sun.  This could radically change temperatures, because the earth would be closer or farther away from its principle source of heat.

Greenhouse Effect

Posted on diciembre 11th, 2011 in Second Paper by andogo

The greenhouse effect is when the temperature rises because the sun’s heat and light is trapped in the earth’s atmosphere.  This is like when heat is trapped in a car. On a very hot day, the car gets hotter when it is out in the parking lot.  This is because the heat and light from the sun can get into the car, by going through the windows, but it can’t get back out.  This is what the greenhouse effect does to the earth.  The heat and light can get through the atmosphere, but it can’t get out.  As a result, the temperature rises.

The sun’s heat can get into the car through the windows but is then trapped.  This makes what ever the place might be, a greenhouse, a car, a building, or the earth’s atmosphere, hotter.  This diagram shows the heat coming into a car as visible light (light you can see) and infrared light (heat).  Once the light is inside the car, it is trapped and the heat builds up, just like it does in the earth’s atmosphere.

Sometimes the temperature can change in a way that helps us.  The greenhouse effect makes the earth appropriate for people to live on.  Without it, the earth would be freezing, or on the other hand it would be burning hot.  It would be freezing at night because the sun would be down.  We would not get the sun’s heat and light to make the night somewhat warm.  During the day, especially during the summer, it would be burning because the sun would be up with no atmosphere to filter it, so people, plants, and animals would be exposed to all the light and heat.

Although the greenhouse effect makes the earth able to have people living on it, if there gets to be too many gases, the earth can get unusually warmer, and many plants, animals, and people will die.  They would die because there would be less food (plants like corn, wheat, and other vegetables and fruits).  This would happen because the plants would not be able to take the heat.  This would cause us to have less food to eat, but it would also limit the food that animals have.  With less food, like grass, for the animals that we need to survive (like cows) we would even have less food.  Gradually, people, plants, and animals would all die of hunger. (2)

Global Warming

Posted on diciembre 11th, 2011 in Second Paper by andogo

“Earth has seen a violent past and has seen life forms disappearing from its surface, but that was due to natural forces. But now, humans are creating a catastrophe known as global warming that will wipe out all the life forms in future if it is not stopped now. Global warming definition can be understood by following the average temperature of earth’s surface in the last hundred years. An average temperature has risen dramatically since the industrial revolution clearly showing that global warming is not a natural phenomenon but is a man made disaster. It is the responsibility of every one on earth to understand global warming definition and act to prevent its onslaught.

To understand global warming definition one must understand clearly thecause of global warming. Root cause of global warming is the emission of carbon dioxide due to burning of fossil fuels. The main culprits are the power plants that burn coal to produce electricity and in the process emit huge amounts of carbon dioxide. This carbon dioxide envelops earth and does not allow heat of the sun to escape into the atmosphere, giving rise to the temperature. Global warming definition can be easily understood if you understand the principle of a green house.

Effects of global warming should be understood clearly to understand global warming definition. The effects are catastrophic in nature because as the temperature of globe will rise rainfall patterns will change giving rise to droughts and floods. The polar ice caps and glaciers will melt elevating the sea levels. This increase in sea levels will amplify the erosion of coastal areas. Increased temperature will give rise to high humidity levels thus increasing the incidents of epidemic. Global warming definition has a very wide meaning for human race as we are pushing our dear earth towards a place inhabitable for any living form.

If we understand global warming definition then it’s our moral duty to prevent earth from it. The emission of carbon dioxide at all costs must be brought down by using non conventional energy sources like solar and wind energy. We all should stand united and force governments all around the world to enforce Kyoto Protocol in effect that was signed in the year 1997 but is still far away from implementation. Global warming definition was never as important as now, so we must act now and do our bit to slow down global warming as it augurs catastrophe in the near future.

Global warming is one of the most important issues of modern times and if not taken seriously, it is all set to annihilate all life forms from the surface of the earth. To understand the issue and the gravity of the problem it is important to first understand global warming definition. It is continuous increase in the average temperature of the air near the surface of earth and that of the oceans. Global warming definition may look very simple but the phenomenon has started taking its toll, as the climatic conditions all over the earth are changing, and changing very rapidly.

The recorded changes in the average temperatures clearly show that they have a definitive increasing pattern and that by the end of this century will cross the threshold limits. Global warming definition thus becomes of utmost importance to understand, for every person on this planet. It is the menace of global warming that the polar ice caps are receding resulting in the rise of sea levels causing great damages to low lying areas near the oceans. The global warming definition has been understood by the people who have suffered great personal losses caused by the calamities resulting from global warming.

To understand global warming definition one should know what causes this global warming. It is an established fact now that this warming is caused by the reckless burning of hydrocarbon fuels. The burning emits carbon dioxide gas that causes a green house effect by covering the surface of the earth. This cover does not allow the heat of the sun escape into the atmosphere thus keeping the surface warm. For an average person global warming definition may look mundane but he should give a serious thought to it, for his actions today will save the generations to come, tomorrow.

Teaching the global warming definition has now become a focal point of the governments all over the world. The official bodies are coordinating with independent groups to make people realize the importance of global warming and its effects on the future generations. Global warming is a controversial issue as industrial giants causing it wholeheartedly deny the fact that carbon dioxide emission is the cause of this phenomenon but on the other hand are spending millions to make people understand global warming definition by organizing workshops and media ad campaigns taking it up as their social responsibility. Global warming has the potential to kill million of humans in the next few decades”. (1)


Financial Crisis by Bird & Fortune

Posted on diciembre 4th, 2011 in Essays 8 - 14 by andogo

The people doesn’t trust  the banks, the people haven’t this confidence that previously could  have with the bank that kept their money, actually you don’t know  who is the director of the bank. What is sure is that in the bank there will exist many persons who only  looking that it’s clients pay more interest, without matter  them if the clients can or can’t to pay their debts.

Another certain thing is that when the banks give too much money, the governments comes in their help. This   government help generates a few taxes that since it couldn’t be any other way these taxes are paid by the persons who have their money in the banks. Apparently the companiesdoesn’t pay this series of taxes, because otherwise they would leave to another country.

The banks doesn’t leave  money the people whom  with the objective to help these could pay his mortgages, which really the banks look is to charge more and more interests, as the majority of the companies only seek to obtain benefits without thinking in the consequences about other persons. The market needed a few formulas of lendings, and for that  were created, but these formulas were used with the objective to obtain more money at the expense of people.

Many banks are buying other banks, these are the banks which directors have one great salary and doesn’t matter them anything what previously have gone  to these banks. What seems to be clear is that the persons who have given their money, will must continues paying their debts and if they can’t, they will should  ask  more money  so as to pay these debts. In this way the people debts will continue growing but the matter for the banks is that to the same rhythm also   their benefits increase.

Personally  spite of listen enough times  this conversation to can have a light idea, I will dare to say that this history about that a few persons prosper at the cost of others it starts tiring me. I would like that some day the powerful people won’t abuse  in opposition to other persons simply to obtain benefits. The benefits  can be obtained equally in good faith. The banks only must doing that to protect their clients money, giving profitability to these clients in exchange, at the same time as they give the money to other persons who really need it,in other words must act as intermediary, but it must do it without absorbing their clients blood.
