Climate change is a hot topic these days. These days, everyone, expert or not, is expressing their opinions on it.
The Real Question Is How Bad Is This Change.
According to National Geographic, the planet is becoming warmer rapidly. The average temperature has risen by almost 0.9 degrees Celsius since the 1900s. This rise in temperature has far-ranging effects today. For example, the glaciers are melting, and the sea levels are rising.
As the ocean water expands further, it will reach the houses and infrastructure. For example, some nations are at risk of getting swept underwater.
Such climate change will cause heavier rainfall too. This will increase destructive flooding in other areas also.
In dry regions, global warming will cause severe droughts and destructive fire seasons.
Scientists believe that due to greenhouse gases, the temperatures will continue to rise in the coming decade. As humans produce more carbon dioxide, it traps more heat.
These higher temperatures lead to intense heat waves, crop failures, and shifts in animal patterns.
The effect of climate change is not limited to the climate; many indirect effects are just as devastating. Hotter temperatures and droughts reduce the output of corn, wheat, and other crops. This will lead to inflation in many food items. The health and lives of the millions of poor people will 2qbe at stake.
If the carbon dioxide levels keep rising, scientists predict that the temperatures will increase by 10 degrees Fahrenheit by the end of the century.
Keeping in view the severity of climate change and how it affects all spheres of life, scientists have come up with solutions to fight with this challenge together. The good news is that we have the power to win. We should use technology to our benefit, rather than against us, and win this battle together.
The most obvious rule of war is to cut down carbon dioxide emissions. Today, we have started many afforestation schemes to make the world green.
We have started to reduce carbon emissions by opting to travel smartly. Many people use public transport or biking instead of cars when going to work or school.
Governments are using renewable resources like wind and solar energy to produce electricity. This has not only made electricity cheaper, but it has also decreased the harmful carbon emissions.
People have also tried to reduce their impact on the climate by shopping smartly. The clothing sector also contributes to climate change negatively because a lot of energy is invested in making clothes.
By cutting down the wastes, and becoming energy efficient, many nations are doing their part to save Earth.
By working together to reduce the impact of global warming, we can go a long way and save ourselves from its dire consequences.
