“The world must come together to confront climate change. There is little scientific dispute that if we do nothing, we will face more drought, famine, and mass displacement that will fuel more conflict for decades”
It is said that nature has enough to satisfying everyone’s needs but not enough for everyone’s greed. Our mother nature has bestowed us with all that we need to survive and progress and yet we have been wasting all the natural resources. This has led to significant changes in the earth’s temperature, something that we call Global warming.
What is global warming?
Global warming refers to the ongoing rise in the average temperature of the earth’s climate system and occurs when greenhouse gases such as CO2 and other pollutants collect in the atmosphere and absorb sunlight and solar radiation. This leads to hotter heat waves, more frequent droughts, melting glaciers, rising sea level, and other severe climatic changes that leads to disruption of the habitats of several species.
It is high time that all of us get together to address this menace. Every individual can inculcate certain small changes in day to day lives, which may seem small but will collectively have a big effect on global warming
Everyday routine things to follow to reduce global warming
Reduce, Reuse and Recycle
If we reduce wastage by reducing the urge to buy new products or replacing them with eco-friendly products, we can contribute a lot to the environment. Also, reusing the bottles, plastic containers, and other items and recycling unwanted papers, bottles and other material is great earth saving tip.
Using more Solar Products
If we start using solar cookers and other items that run on solar energy, we can reduce our dependence on non-renewable sources for electricity generation. Having solar panels installed is readily possible and easily available. It also saves not just electricity but also money in the long run
Buy Energy-efficient appliances
Apart from solar products, there are several other ways we can for energy-efficient appliances. Energy-efficient products can help you to save energy, save money, and reduce your carbon footprint. We can replace incandescent light bulbs with CFL bulbs.
By driving a little less or by going for other alternatives such as public transport and carpooling we can significantly cut down fuel consumption and save the environment. The biggest pollution emitting fumes are caused by oil and gasoline. Cutting down consumption is a huge step to reducing energy wastes.
It is the best way one can contribute to the Climate change. Planting more trees helps in reducing global warming more than any other method. They not only take in carbon-dioxide but also give oxygen which is the vital requirement for survival.
Simple steps such as turning off the lights and electronic devices and switching to cleaner and renewable fuels can impact Climate change positively. If we go for these steps and be a little more considerate, we can play our part in combating this global menace.
Hi, I’m Tanvi, I can usually be found reading a book or writing. If not for this, I’ll be busy with my sketchbook!
I believe that no one’s too small to make a difference in this world and even our small efforts can bring about huge changes and smiles to so many faces!
