Global warming, which is the term given to the recent climate changes we are currently seeing, happens because average temperatures around the world have increased. They are doing so because more and more carbon dioxide is being emitted into the atmosphere — and if we don’t do something now, we’ll all be affected, no matter where we live. The climate changes we see now should be a concern to all of us, no matter how old we are. We need to demonstrate that we can be responsible and change this, so that others will follow suit. We need to make changes now, so that these already dire climate changes don’t escalate.
Research shows that heat is trapped in the atmosphere from this emission of carbon dioxide. Extra heat is also produced from deforestation. All of these things indirectly come from use and over consumption of fossil fuels and natural resources, which means this continual “excess heat” is going to be building up and causing even more climate change than a sorry happening. Even though it’s already begun, doing a few simple things can control this climate change.
What is affected by climate change? Everything; plants and flowers will grow at different rates, and so will not survive the new climates they’ve been given. Plants, animals, population sizes of all species will shift and change as a result of these climate changes, all of them disruptive and some of them disastrous. Glaciers are already melting and are raising ocean levels, and will continue to make changes in weather patterns. The activity of the human race has caused this increase in temperature, and only our actions can return the rate of change to normal levels.
What happens if nothing is done? Plant and animal species will shift and in some cases will become extinct. If you think humans aren’t going to be affected by this, think again. Because every living thing depends on other living things, we’ll be affected, too. Our food chain will be altered and many species are becoming extinct (in fact, some already have). What we eat will change drastically. Weather patterns will only become more intense, even though we have already begun to see this activity, thus resulting in even more deaths and destruction. Economies, too, will be negatively affected by climate change. Intense storms, for example, could destroy plant food sources like coffee beans or wheat, which in turn is of course going to increase food prices at the grocery store. Besides economic changes to the negative, death itself will also increase among people because of catastrophic weather like tsunami occurrences, major storms, and more hurricane activity.
Carbon dioxide is increasingly becoming a problem because as industries pollute, more carbon dioxide is put into the air. Cars, too, contribute to this; to that end, regulations are being put in place or tightened to try to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emissions allowed in these instances. Climate change can be slowed or even reversed if carbon dioxide emissions would decrease by just 3% every year.
Where does all of this extra carbon dioxide come from? It comes from industrial pollution and from carbon dioxide emissions from cars. Restrictions are beginning to be put in place such that this type of carbon dioxide emission is minimized. We can decrease these climate changes through carbon dioxide over exposure if cars and industries themselves reduce emissions by 3% year.
However, everyone can help to slow global warming. Some simple things you can do include planting a tree, recycling, weatherizing your house so that it’s more efficient (and so that you use less energy and therefore cut down on carbon dioxide emissions), replacing old appliances with more efficient ones, and so on. You can also eliminate plastic, carpool to work, take the bus, etc. And of course, you will need to teach your children how to reduce energy consumption and pollution in this way as well. Children need to learn the importance of the environment to us and our continued survival so that they and their children can continue to enjoy their lives.
Overall, climate changes are evident now and will drastically change the future. The choices that we make now will impact our future for sure. By simply allowing more oxygen in our atmosphere, we can reduce the amount of carbon dioxide that is covering the Earth like a warm blanket. Humans can start with baby steps to preserve our planet for future generations. Climate changes will impact our future, but we can all help to slow it down and then maybe focus on reversing it. Time is not on our side when it comes to climate changes in the future.
