    I found Adrift after a desperate search of my library for a book that might heal a bit of the heartbreak from the ending of the Throne of Glass series., and since it was short and had a decent-looking storyline, I grabbed it and started reading. You can't go wrong with a book about five teens stranded at sea with no hope of survival, right? WRONG. Don't get me wrong, I like a fast-paced book, but Adrift was had a blink-and-you'll-miss-it plot. It felt like the author just tossed the story upon you without a second thought for character development. It definitely would have done better as a longer novel. But I have to give Mr. Griffin credit; the story is what it claims to be and nothing less. It was realistic in gristly details and had an ending that just sums up how life goes: The main characters don't always get the girl, not everyone lives, and it's not always just forgive-and-forget. I found Adrift in the teen section, but anyone could read it. It's only 228 pages, so I didn't lose much, but this book didn't leave me feeling like I'd gained anything, either.

    Marine-2102425_960_720-mediumI think there may be several other things we can do. For one, we can recycle as much as possible. We can have gardens at home. That will save us from buying some food that has to be transported from far away. That way there will be fewer shipping trucks on the road and it can reduce pollution. We can compost food scraps. Go organic! It helps reduce the use of pesticides, which often can be harmful to the environment. What do you think?

    Marine-2102425_960_720-mediumLet's get one thing straight here. Even if global warming WAS a hoax, we'd still run out of fossil fuels eventually and have to switch to clean, renewable energy. Switching at least some of our ways now could save our country hundreds of thousands of dollars in the future. Contrary to Trump's claims, it would support the economy long term, instead of restricting its growth.

    Marine-2102425_960_720-mediumWorking on making renewable energy more popular, effective, and affordable could give our country an advantage in the world economy. Imagine if an American scientist came up with a breakthrough way to make clean energy--for cheap! We could then market it internationally, to countries who hadn't made that breakthrough yet. They would be willing to pay a lot more for cheap energy than they would want to spend developing an alternative. Closing the door to innovation is closing the door to progress. Please keep that in mind, President Trump! If we do not take the initiative to create a new way for ourselves, we may eventually wind up in the same position the other countries would be in if we were ahead of the game. Reducing incentive to convert to renewable energy has the potential to cost us big in the long-term.
