My Take on Climate Change

Climate change is a series of dramatic changes to overall climate patterns either globally or by region. These changes are due to the rise of carbon dioxide from human activities that harm the air quality resulting in more heat globally. This can result in more summer heat waves, warmer weather in the fall/winter season, and ice melting in the north pole and Antarctica. As I started a new job this summer in East Manhattan where I have to commute to work via public transportation, I have personally felt the effects of climate change happening. Throughout the summer of this job, I have experienced extreme heat that felt like over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, while wearing a black shirt that made it  feel worse. There were drenching rains on some days. The city can help combat climate change by ensuring that recycling bins are marked properly and are much more conspicuously placed in visible, high-foot traffic places such as malls and other populated areas of the city. Recycling means conserving our natural resources that saves heat needed to  produce plastic items, among other materials. Also, it’s important not to over use non-renewable resources such air-conditioning, and to purchase energy-saving appliances if possible.
