Climate Change

Climate change in todays world is one of the biggest discussion that many people from all over the globe are talking about. Climate change is a long-term change in the earths overall temperature with massive and permanent ramifications. Human activities are causing the temperature in our climate to exceed tremendous levels such as burning coal, cutting down forests and so on. The Industrial Revolution (1760-1820) had a huge impact in how our climate has been affected today. Over population also plays a big roll in the Earths climate change. There are 7.8 billion people in the world, if we can reduce the number of people being born we will have fewer emissions. Due to the drastic changes in our climate, glaciers and ice sheets are melting. To some people its not important but in fact it is. The Extreme Ice Survey team stated in their article "Why do glaciers matter?" that "glaciers white surfaces reflect the suns ray, helping to keep our current climate mild. When glaciers melt, darker exposed surfaces absorb and release heat, raising temperatures". What does this mean? We essentially have until the year 2030 before changes in our climate is irreversible.

What can we do today to change that?

  • Limiting the use of fossil fuels such as oil

  • Switch to electric cars (if possible)

  • Reducing your consumption of animal protein by half

  • Limit the number of children you have

  • Try to switch to a renewable energy source
