Education is Key to Slow Climate Change by City Tech Blogger Benny Li Li

Climate change is the global change in the temperature and climate. Although climate change may have been a natural process since the industrial revolution in the 1800s, climate change has sped up radically. Human influence has caused global temperatures to rise at alarming rates and break all high records. The use of fossil fuels and deforestation are some of the things that increase greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, causing sun radiation to get trapped inside of Earth, increasing its temperature. This is known as Global Warming. Along with the increase in temperatures, comes the melting of ice caps, which increases the sea levels, causing more floods. It also causes more droughts, making land unable to produce any food in this rapidly growing population.

Climate change is inevitable, but there are things we can do to slow it down. One of the things we can do to help with this dramatic change is to get more educated, informing ourselves and our close ones about the problem is the first step towards tackling it. Another thing is supporting companies that are “going green”, meaning becoming more environmentally friendly. Over the last years, companies have started to use environmental friendliness as a form of branding. By supporting this type of business, hopefully more will chime in. Governments can invest more in education, making it more affordable. This way more people will have the potential to find solutions to our current methods of producing energy that will satisfy the demand. These are some of the ways we can respond, they might not happen overnight, but slow steps are better than nothing.
