My Take On Climate Change

Climate change from last year until now has been a lot different than before. Last year for all of us around the word, we were living through the COVID-19 pandemic, a pandemic no one thought could happened. We as humans were thinking COVID would last for a month or two but it lasted for a year. It’s been crazy in  the city of New York and other cities where the virus was very active. Climate change and COVID 19 are related. What I heard is that when the weather is very hot and warm, the virus is very active because viruses like warm weather and like to spread around areas that are hot. In the cold weather, the virus is not that active because of cold air lessens the spread of the virus. That the pandemic and global warming can affect each other, for me it’s a possibility that we have to look at. I think destroying forests can invite epidemics but not pandemics. It can worsen the climate change because you are basically destroying the environment of nature in the Earth and causes wild fires and a lot of warm weather that has occurred in certain area in a long time.

I am of Venezuelan descent so right now in my country, Covid-19  is pretty active. At least now  they have the vaccines. It’s been a horrible scene. As far as climate change though, there hasn’t been that much impact in Venezuela; it’s usually the same everyday— warm weather and sometimes it will rain.
