A suitable environment to live near-by?

We think that this picture shows the stupidity of some people. This scrap yard should be removed and instead, it can either be used as a field for the farmers, a playground for children or a football ground. It shouldn’t be wasted on a scrapyard as it is surrounded by a lot of green areas. So, it would be an excellent place for a playground as it is surrounded by greenery which give out fresh air and prevent from certain illnesses. Also a problem for neighbouring places is the amount of junk that there is at the scrap yard nowadays that takes up a lot of space. This can be easily reduced with use of more efficient machinery to work faster. Also the scrapyard emanates a lot of sound pollution. One also should not forget the first impressions that a tourist might get if he sees this polluted environment.

Another use for the environment

In certain places in Malta people go to have fun but they leave their waste behind. As we can see in the picture, some ignorant people left bottles full of used motor oil and half a destroyed chair. What do you think will the tourists say about Malta when they see such things? Will this kind of behavior give a good impression of the Maltese environment, as a beautiful one? Sitting down and just blaming the people who are responsible for these actions, will not help improve this environmental problem. We need to take action as soon as possible. The consequences of this vandalism to the environment would be devastating if we do nothing now! One of the problems related to this kind of behavior is the extinction of endemic flora and fauna. Some solutions could be: raising the fines for people who are caught vandalising the environment, organising cleaning-up campaigns and telling people more about the effects left upon the environment due to our irresponsible behaviour.

Colour dots spoils the green

This is a typical aerial view of some traditional Maltese fields. The small colour dots are the only eye sore in this picture! Do we need to add colours to this greenery? These dots are old tanks which by time become very rusty and not so environmental friendly or even degradable. The tanks are placed in fields sometimes instead of rebuilding a fallen rubble wall to separate one field from another or else to be filled with rain water so that the farmers can use this water for their seed beds. These are no excuses because instead of these tanks they can rebuild a typical Maltese rubble wall. In the case of reservoirs there are many other types of how to build a good rain water reservoir! In our school and on all media a lot of environmental activities go on to raise awareness. It is our duty to leave a better future.

Peer Through

Unbelievable nature! A window in the midst of horizontal and vertical strata. The various shades of brown contrasts deeply with the azure sky. It instils the yearning to embark on a journey – a journey over the massive rocks – an urge to climb high – to climb high to peer through the amazing window. What is beyond? What wonders awaits us? What mysteries await us? Alas, we have to venture to peer through and see what lies beyond. Subsequently we have to prepare ourselves to face the challenges of a changing world.

So rugged yet so calm and smooth?

Craters in the rocks. So difficult to thread upon. Yet each stepping stone adheres a structure – a structure of wholeness. In the midst, a hole, full of clear calm water. And beyond the deep, dark blue sea. One ponders and wonders – was a ruler used to draw the precise line which demarcates the land from the sea? The horizon meets the infinite sky in the perfection of nature! To manage to surpass obstacles enhances the will-power to open our wings and soar up and fly – fulfilled by satisfaction!
