My Take on Climate Change

The climate of New York City over the years has changed with extreme noticeable differences. For example, the amount of snow has felt as if it has been less during the wintertime as well as an increase in warmer weather. In the summer,  it feels as if it has become warmer with more humidity. The weather continues to be unpredictable.  For example, as of 2021 there have been two hurricanes that have passed through the North East region:  Hurricane Henry and Hurricane Ida. Both had impacts such as  a flooded gym which canceled many indoor activities.  Hurricane Ida made the New York City subways  impossible for people to use.

These issues should be addressed worldwide and initiatives that have been taken should also help decrease the impacts of climate change.  increase with more people learning about them.
