My Take on Climate Change by City Tech Blogger Ivan Boamah

We are aware that climate is defined as “the long-term pattern of weather in a particular area.” I believe that climate change has been built upon my personal religious faith as a Christian. I believe that God is the controller and mediator when it comes to weather and climate change. He is the one who created the universe and everything that is surrounded. This is stated in Genesis 1:1 of the Bible. However, I am aware that human beings can provide a positive change to the planet and prevent further issues for climate change. As stated in a recent article on Global Climate Change, “The effects of human-caused global warming are happening now, are irreversible on the timescale of people today. It will surely continue to get worse in the decades to come”. Based on this quote, I am certain that the problems concerning climate change will continue. Additionally, there will be more droughts and heat waves that come as a result. In Genesis 8:22, it states “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease”. Based on this quotation, it is clear that God had our 4  seasons made to be continued with mankind if we were live on this planet. Another reason based on my faith pertaining to climate change is what the Bible states in Luke 21:11. It states that, “There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven”. These are signs tells me that God has a major say in world climate change, but I’ve stated earlier, human activities and way of life can also contribute to these problems. In my opinion, the most effective solutions would be to preserve the environment as well as people contributing to our environment. This can have an effective effect on world climate change. Pertaining to you guys, ClimateYou, I love the idea behind these blogs and giving students and people around the world the opportunity to share their thoughts and opinions on climate change. Keep up the great work and I’m excited to share many more thoughts with you guys.
