Matai Islands... And the URANIUM

Matai Islands are four very scenic islands which have a human/common animal population of zero.
However, these islands are not to be taken lightly. Each island contains at least one valuable ore or metal including: Island 1 has uranium and limestone, Island 2 has natural gases and iron sand, Island 3 has gold and coal, and Island 3 has diamonds and oil. As you can see, one of the owners are stuck with a highly radioactive substance, URANIUM!!! Unfortunately, because our goofy leader, that's us. And when I say US, I mean the highly sophisticated group of students that may be renamed The Survivors. But have no fear, my friends, because I have a plan! A plan to treat the substance to make it safe to use. Unfortunately, we need new recruits, for we have need of positions including: Architect, to design our new Eco buildings. Technicians that are used to making and fixing with little or sometimes no resources. A miner who is trained in the arts of the ninja, including: unseen movement, scuba diving, and extreme speed and fighting skills. A crew of farmers. Builders, who are used to making Eco houses. Lumberjacks.

We may need more than this, my friends, for there are many things that could go wrong on the island. Including what we dig up on the island, Including the uranium. Please let me know if any of you in my secret group have any ideas or things to add.

Global Warming

As you can see from the images above, the suns heat and rays travel through Earths atmosphere, bounces off the planet, and then the atmosphere, heats up the planet, melts the ice caps, and floods our planet. This would force us to live in giant plastic domes, and eat pills, or scuba dive through an airlock, and catch fish with a spear. This is happening because of peoples selfishness and using up too much energy!
How You Can Help
Using your car less and biking to work, or even just taking the bus helps the planet. But we will need more than just you to save the planet, we will need to get this point across the globe! Turning off the lights and using less gas is helpful, too.

What Is Sustainability?

Well, you should know that sustainability is a word, (unless you're an eejit) but what does it mean? I can tell you this: Sustainability is a noun, and means being able to:
1. to support, hold, or bear up from below; bear the weight of, as a structure.
2. to bear (a burden, charge, etc.).
3. to undergo, experience, or suffer (injury, loss, etc.); endure without giving way or yielding.
4. to keep (a person, the mind, the spirits, etc.) from giving way, as under trial or affliction.
5. to keep up or keep going, as an action or process: to sustain a conversation.
6. to supply with food, drink, and other necessities of life.
7. to provide for (an institution or the like) by furnishing means or funds.
8. to support (a cause or the like) by aid or approval.
9. to uphold as valid, just, or correct, as a claim or the person making it: The judge sustained the lawyer's objection.
10. to confirm or corroborate, as a statement: Further investigation sustained my suspicions.

The word sustainability has become increasingly prominent in recent years. It is seen by some as just another hollow buzzword, and is often used interchangeably with concepts such as environmentalism or being ‘green’.
