    In my interview, I decided to interview my mom. My mom grew up in a rural area Chihuahua México with my great-grandma and grandpa. They would raise cattle and grow corn my great grandparents would sell their harvest to the local supermarkets.

           One of the questions I asked my mom was what were some of the things they would do for entertainment? Her answer to my question was that she and her cousins gather around and play games outside and enjoy the outdoors. I thought this was very interesting to see how much society has changed from binging an extremely social society to a  more antisocial society where 50% of the time we communicate with each other through cell phone’s and more and more people have started to buy them even for their 5-year-old children. 

    The second question I asked her was what would they do for food? Her response was that they would eat off the land that they would kill a cow or chicken and vegetables that would grow them themselves. It’s strange to think how dependent we are on supermarkets and restaurants that if that would disappear most of us wouldn’t know how to grow our own food or how to prepare a freshly killed chicken. 
    The interview with my mom showed me how much we depend on technology and mass production to mantén us not only from starving to death but by keeping us connected with family and friends.

       During this week I have been explaining to my fellow classmates w/ what aquaponics is and how it works and how much better it is for our environment than traditional agriculture. This showed me that I could educate some of my friends and classmates on how we could help the environment by being more sustainable with our water and food. 
    I felt like I was doing something good for my community and that I was somewhat helping the world by showing people about aquaponics. I also learned that I could educate my community about aquaponics. I guess this is one of the ways that I could help save our planet that is slowly being destroyed by pollution and to reduce CO2 from the atmosphere.

    9/25/19                                                                                    ecological foot print

    In the Eco foot print calculate my results were shocking i was expecting my ecological foot print to be lower . it would take 2.9 earths  just to sustain my because of my life style. if every one in the world had the same life style as me the world would only last a couple of month's. There is a couple of things i could change about my life style. I could buy more local food  try to grow my own crops. this would reduces some of the carbon dioxide  of the atmosphere that is created by trucks.
    this shows us that even  the things we do that we think are normal affect the world in some way or another. this just shows us that there is a big Chang we need to do to protect the earth  and to give the planet its time to replenish and fix what we have destroyed. we could do this by binge more smart about the things we do and  think of how something  is going to effect the Eco system.

    I hope to gain the skill necessary to take care of the environment.  I hope this  class will show me what thing effect the environment the most and what  we could do to fix the damage we done to the Earth and prevent further damage by being more careful by were I throw trash. I also want to learn things we could do to lower the  amount of green house gases in the Earth's atmosphere.I also want to learn all the valuable skills it takes to help the Earth and its air quality . I also want to become more responsible be not leaving all the lights in the house on and be turning off the water when I am not using it. I want to contribute to the team by giving it my best and not letting them down by failing and I also want to contribute to the society by recline plastic bags, glass canters and aluminum cans and instead of throwing away leftovers i could always just  compost them. The compost i could use it to grow my own vegetables. If i see trash trow on the floor i could always pick it up and throw it away were it belongs.
