Climate change is a very important issue. Our entire planet is warming at an increased rate over time. You may ask, “Why?” There are many reasons, but the simple answer is; people.
What we did
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), human activities, and the things we make, are the biggest contributors to climate change. Activities such as driving our cars every day throw greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Human-driven vehicles emit these greenhouse gases by burning the fuel they use.
Gases such as carbon dioxide and methane are released into the atmosphere and will remain and bubble for years to come. Carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and fluorinated gases are all considered greenhouse gases.
According to the EPA deforestation and soil degradation cause more carbon dioxide to be released into the atmosphere. Methane comes from livestock, agriculture, and organic waste that decomposes in landfills. So the food that people throw away is harmful to the environment as methane is released during decomposition.
Nitrogen oxides are released when fossil fuels are burned. Fossil fuels are naturally formed in the Earth’s crust from decaying animals and dead plants. When these fuels are collected and burned, nitrogen oxides can pollute the atmosphere.
F-gases, also known as F-gases, are man-made gases that contain fluorine. F gases are used in industrial processes and in everyday products. Products that contain F-gases include things like refrigerators, air conditioners, and aerosol cans.
Gas and Impact
Green gases are harmful to the air as defined by the EPA. As the atmosphere weakens, the sun’s powerful rays hit Earth with less protection. Think of this process as applying sunscreen but without water.
The atmosphere is Earth’s sunshade, shielding the universe and humans from the blazing sun’s glare. Without sunscreen, the earth will burn, and aloe vera will not heal those wounds.
Decreasing atmospheric pressure raises global temperatures. According to the EPA, the world’s 10 hottest years have occurred between 2005 and now. The EPA also says that extremely hot days, and unusually hot nights, have increased activity. Unusually hot nights indicate that the world is “warm”.
Don’t Be Cold
Climate change will make heat waves more intense and other natural events such as hurricanes and hurricanes will occur more frequently and last longer. Since the 1960s, heat wave seasons have moved from an average of two per year to six heat waves per year, according to the EPA. This is an indication of how bad Earth’s atmosphere is.
Obviously, something had to be done. People, in general, need to be more mindful of their actions, especially those that harm the environment. The damage that has been done can be reversed, but it will take time and you should start now. If the air is shrinking, the effects will be felt quickly.
Solutions without pollution
What we can do is stop doing things that make us feel bad. Large industrial companies must stop bad practices and be forced to find alternative ways for their business. Now governments are looking at taxing companies, like Exxon and Chevron, that are polluting the earth. This is a great step in the right direction.
To keep cars from running on oil, some type of cleaner should be made to replace the oil. Electric cars are a good development for this. They help keep greenhouse gas emissions to a minimum. It would be better if, eventually, everyone uses an electric car.
Instead of cutting down trees to make more space for houses, we need to replant trees and plants, especially in areas where there is no greenery nearby.
There is only one life, one country, why waste it in the evil of the world? Changes must be made to avoid climate change. The land is waiting for us.
