The Environment Crisis Fight & Solutions
The Environment Crisis – The Fight
The environmental crisis has an effect on us, animals, and plants alike. We face the fight against the health challenges the environment crisis poses. Climate change, which is one of the effects of environmental crisis, though looks theoretical but if not tackled will have an impact on the health of both animals and us. It is warned that climate change may lead to an increase in vector-borne diseases and even asthma. We face the fight against natural disasters like earthquakes, hurricanes, and so on.
The Solutions: Current Global Actions To Fight The Crisis
There are a few ways that can be used to solve the problems of the environmental crisis. According to the UN climate change summit, in order to tackle the problem of pollution which is the largest cause of the environmental crisis, commercial companies and residential buildings must find a way to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere by engaging renewable energies like wind, solar, biomass and geothermal. Also, there must be proper recycling of waste like bottles, papers, and the likes. Resident and commercial companies should be encouraged to plant trees and flowers around the environment. In that way, we can reduce the number of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere.
How Is Our Climate Changing Now?
There is currently a lot of research been conducted around the world on climate change, and the report has shown that there is an increase in temperature at the earth’s surface, the atmosphere, and as well as the oceans. Globally, the climate is changing as well, and because of the extreme temperature, there is an increase in precipitation events across the globe. This has led to the melting of glaciers, shrinking of ice sheets, a decrease of snow covers, a rise in the sea level and also acidity, and flooding is becoming more frequent in some parts of the world. Now the growing and maturation season of crops is taking longer, and many species are migrating to new environments due to either frequent wildfires or drought. There is strong wind intensity especial in the arid regions and currently, some part of the globe is experiencing some changes in the timing of some important biological seasonal occurrences like rainfall, winter, and the likes.
What Does The Future Look Like?
If we continue with this negligence, and we keep releasing greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere, statistics have shown that by 2100, the temperature in the earth’s surface would have risen from 1.5°C to 5.3°C. This will lead to a devastating effect on the earth that may usher in another era. There will be a rise in the sea level, which will cause a lot of damage and also lead to a devastating flood. Intense heat and an increase in vector-borne and respiratory disease is also possible to happen. There will be low rainfall in some regions of the world, which will eventually lead to drought and famine. Some animal and plant species will go into extinction either due to famine, or a natural disaster like wildfire, earthquakes, or hurricanes. The glaciers will melt, the ice sheet will shrink further and even the aquatic organism will die. This is due to the low amount of dissolved oxygen caused by an increase in the acidity of the sea. The future is at risk and if we continue this way, we will not have a world to handle over to the next generation.
