My Take on Climate Change by City Tech Blogger Starlyn Hiraldo

As we all know, climate change is real, we are all seeing it happening right now. I came to the U.S in the summer of 2011 and I can say that the difference in weather from that year compared to now is huge, especially when we talk about the winter. During the winter back in 2011, I can remember that it used to snow all the time. Basically, we would get snow every 2 or 3 weeks, but now things have changed a lot. We are now seeing weather in the 50s and 60s in the middle of winter and week-by-week, it is like playing the lottery. You never know what’s coming next because now the weather is so unpredictable that we have seen record-breaking weather-related things happening in the last 10 years alone.  I believe that the best way to deal with this is to educate ourselves and our future generations on the importance of adapting and mitigating climate change.  We should all start doing things like recycling, turning off the lights when you go out, especially the AC or heater, investing more in renewable energy like solar panels, windmills, hydropower, etc. The governments should be stricter about the emission of greenhouse gases from factories and put in place more laws that prevent deforestation. The most important thing is to be aware of climate change, because remember we are not the last ones on this Earth, so we need to take care of it so that we and our future generations don’t have to struggle to find a way to fix things when it is too late.

  1. I agree with you that the weather change in New York has been unreal throughout the last decade. We are currently facing extreme weather more and more. I even think the weather channel is not that useful anymore because of sudden temperature changes in the atmosphere. We need to support and enforce the climate change movement as much as possible.
