Hi! I need your help. Thanks a lot :)

Global Warming - More Important than Anything Else



My greatest concern is about global warming.

Facing the shocking figures, most of us showed great anxiety about the future of human race without doing anything about it. "Oh, global warming! Who do you think you are?" Most people may reflect on my concern, feeling it as far as the planet Sedna. It may be plausible to think that any individual effort may appear as trivial as a drop in the Pacific Ocean. "Something should be done but it's none of my business." But what if everybody on earth consider it like that? The Noah's Ark was sinking while we human beings are still waiting to death under the illusion that God will mend it somehow.

Worse still, people tend to overlook things which has "little" effect on their lives. In modern society, we are forced to win out the competition to make a better living. As is shown in <<The Little Prince>>, the children's bible, we gradually become too busy to care about the origin of living. We forget that all of our possessions would lose their meanings when the "Earth" dies. We forget that problems won't be solved by themselves. We forget that most people may forget as we do.

We are on the verge of extinction while most of us are still worrying about their own business. That is the biggest reason I'm concerned about it.

There are four components of the project: a film discussion inside class, a bicycle tour around Tsinghua University, a movie show in campus and a outdoor propagate.

Among them, the propagation outside the cafeteria received tremendous attention and about 30 volunteers joined us during the activities. One third of my peers were busy gathering signature on our "For A Cooler Future"banner while others were making quick Q&A with passersby. Standing beside the large propaganda pictures, I was explaining to the students the origin and the detriment of the global warming and the tips for us to do in daily lives.

Surprisingly, French president visited our university and gave a speech on global warming three days later. Though we tried our best to communicate with the organizers of the speech, they refused to offer us the chance to ask questions nor to display our achievements outside the hall, which was really a pity.

Finally, our project won the first place in the department project competition. However, the prize is not the thing we sought but the awareness among the students really ma

Greetings!

I'm happy to help with some editing suggestions!

Facing the shocking figures, most of us show great anxiety about the future of the human race without doing anything about it. "Oh, global warming! Who do you think you are?" Most people may reflect on my concern, feeling it as far as the planet Sedna. - Sedna? I don't understand this reference.

But what if everybody on earth considered it like that? Noah's Ark is sinking while we human beings are still waiting to die under the illusion that God will mend it somehow.

a movie show on campus and an outdoor propagate. - 'propagate' is not a noun; I'm not sure what this means.
