The Effect Students Can Have on Climate Change by City Tech Blogger Karran Hiralal

No matter how you diagnose the current phenomenon known as climate change, there is no guaranteed solution to the problem. Climate change will continue to evolve and expand as time goes by because humans have become the catalyst for this problem. The widespread burning of fossil fuels causes a potent greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide, to be released into the atmosphere contributing to the issue. Long story short, humans rely on this resource for many things daily, so cutting it out of existence would be nearly impossible. The only thing that we as humans can do is lessen our dependence on fossil fuels and come up with another way to create and harness energy.

As students we have the opportunity to make a change. Days go by where students are thinking more and more about the impact of climate change, and sooner or later they will come up with not one but multiple solutions. With the number of students in the world, they can make a change if they advocate for the same cause. So far, many solutions have been created so that there is another alternative for energy. Wind Power machines and solar panels have been issued throughout many countries to help lower the burning of fossil fuels. While this may have been an alternative, there may be a more efficient way to gather energy. With many students around the world, if they should come together and come up with an idea, changes may come that would help slow down climate change.
