Climate Change is No Myth by City Tech Blogger Ashish Tamang

What is climate change? Put simply, it is the long-term change of the temperature and regular weather patterns at a given location. We all know climate change is real but how do we know that? According to NASA, “The current warming trend is of particular significance because it is unequivocally the result of human activity since the mid-20th century…” Ever since the mid 20th century, human activities such as burning fossil fuels and deforestation have increased the levels of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Greenhouse gases traps the heat in the Earth’s atmosphere and keeps the planet warm. Without greenhouse gases, our planet would not be habitable. There are many that still believe climate change is just a myth. However, there is much evidence showing climate change is much more than just a myth. There has been an increase in global temperatures, melting glaciers, increase in sea levels, extreme events and many more. An increase in global temperate and warmer oceans are a direct correlation to stronger hurricanes. Having said all this, I believe that climate change is an alarming issue that has to be tackled globally. Earth is the only habitable planet for humans as of yet and we should work together to keep the planet as healthy as possible. While modernization is inevitable, I am sure there are less harmful ways for us humans to advance.
