Climate Change: The Stories within the Ice

Explanation:

I chose to do my project on the ice cores as my topic from the climate change unit. I chose the ice cores because of the mass amount of information regarding them. There are many stories within the ice cores. We learned plenty about all of this information, yet I still found myself wanting to know more. And that is why I thought it was so important to do my project on this subject.

This subject applies to real life considering the fact that it contains plenty of information on the pollution humans cause.
