Banning Fireworks Essay
Fireworks are used for special events in the whole world, a lot of people have unlimited access to buy fireworks. When special events are coming up people get excited to watch fireworks exploding in the sky. Some people do not realize fireworks are dangerous in many ways. Something good I can tell about fireworks is, when I was a child I used to play with fireworks, and it was funny to watch them explode. This Christmas my brother and cousin were playing with fireworks but they had an accident with only one firework, my brother lit a firework, then my brother and cousin ran away from there but the firework flew against my cousin burned at his ear, then the same firework burned my brother in his arm.
The first reason fireworks should be banned is that fireworks cause accidents to some people, and in some cases people die to play with them. People between 6 and 19 years old have more than 50% of provability of hurt themselves playing with fireworks. Fireworks are made with different kinds of ingredients but the most dangerous is the gunpowder because it is form part of the base of the fireworks and it is very explosive. When fireworks explode they produce fire, also fireworks explode so quickly that some people get burns and wounds caused for the fire emitted for fireworks when they explode. Fireworks are most use in holidays or a special event such as Christmas, New Years, Independence Day, and many other events such as thematic parks or zoos. Fireworks should be banned in the whole world because they are dangerous to the person operating them and to bystanders, they start fires when landing in flammable materials and nature, and they cause lot pollution.
One reason fireworks should be banned is that they cause fires after landing in flammable materials and nature. Some fireworks still on fire when they are landing, some houses, business and personal property such as cars are damaged because of the fireworks. Sometimes fireworks land over flammable materials such as paper, cartons, trash, causing fires. Nature such as trees, gardens and water are affected as well, water is one of the most important natural resource that is protected for many environmental groups, and one of them is the environmental group of San Diego Coast Keeper. Last year Sea World applied for one permit to use fireworks in their shows, to avoid being sued for the environmental group Coast Keeper, Sea World is going to be the first park in the whole nation “to obtain a pollution discharge permit for exploding fireworks over a body of water, to ensure no harm is occurring to Mission Bay”. (Rogers, 2007).
Fireworks cause pollution that affect people and environment. A lot of people in the whole world have a respiratory disease such as asthma, hyperventilation and lung cancer. The human respiratory system provides oxygen to the body and lungs help to clean and remove all body wastes, also lungs help to filter out infectious agents cause from smoke and other pollutants such as fireworks. When the environment is contaminated with pollution such as the one that fireworks emit, the level of contaminants materials increase extremely that people that have pulmonary diseases cannot breath because of the contamination in the air.
Asthma in one of the most dangerous diseases in the world, asthma is a condition in the respiratory system that cause spams in the lungs. People that are more affected with this condition are children, but they usually get over the respiratory conditions as they grow old. In holidays some people go to the hospital because of the pollution in the air, because the environment is contaminated with the fireworks smoke. The environment of this world is already damaged with smoke and residues of heavy metals that stayed in the air; the pollution reduces for fireworks are equal to a thousand burned tires in only one day. Fireworks are only one of many factors that cause pollution in the world.
Fireworks have a negative impact to the world, fireworks affected people when they play with fireworks in a lot of ways, and health is one of them. Fireworks start fires damaging property and nature, and the damage is irreversible, some families have lost their houses and personal property that they struggled to pay for it. The nature is something that after damage takes years to regenerate, also the wildlife is affected because they live in this environment as well; the forest is one of the most affected habitats. The contamination is a big factor that it is really serious to the planet. The biggest polluter is the human being, and the human cause all the pollution that affect animals, plants, themselves, the whole planet in general.
Everybody should have respect for the environment because everybody is part of it, is the environment is damaged everybody is affected as well. Children are the future of the world environment, everybody have to teach them how to take care of the environment, people need to put effort in to the environment taking care of it, the government is an essential part to take care for the ecology, but the people is the one who decides the course of their habitat, stop blames the government for giving permission for using fireworks or not, and get started taking care of the planet. Do not change the magic of the world and its beauty for fake magic like fireworks. Think about the environment first.
