Live Interview: Dorian Dishman – High School Senior at St Francis De Sales High School

1. What are your thoughts when you hear the claims that the earth is warming, the environment is being destroyed and that humans are the cause?

I think it is true to an extent and it’s a scary thought and it is becoming a very prevalent issue. We need to start taking steps to preserve the earth.

2. In your mind, what are the driving forces of climate change and environmental degradation?

Pollution is certainly one driving force. It is human pollution. We waste, litter, emit carbon with our cars. Thank goodness, there are more and more electric cars and things of that nature coming along.

3. Has your life been affected in any way? If so, how?

At this point, no, but I do think our lives will eventually be affected. After all the air we breathe is being polluted. A few years ago we had severe water problems and I guess everyone was really affected by that. We didn’t have clean water for weeks. Hundreds of thousands of people were suffering with water problems.
