How We Help to Slow, Stop or Solve Climate Change by a City Tech Blogger

If everyone could stop in a minute to acknowledge the harms we are causing on our planet, what would earth look like in the next 10 years or is it too late?  To quote George Bernard Shaw: “Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”  Throughout history changes have always been a big factor in our lives. We breathe, eat, and work because of changes. As we all know the earth has been changing since the beginning of life. Now our question should be why is it changing so fast, and what can we do about  it as the “future of tomorrow”? Climate change has impacted us on so many levels: the fast melting of ice causing the sea level to rise, the temperature rising up causing more storms and floods, and so much more…

Consumers and students like myself can influence the climate by using less and saving more. Fossil fuels are causing the earth to warm up at an alarming rate, and this is due to the carbon dioxide and other gasses that are released into the atmosphere. Would you rather use water as a fuel source in the future? It’s clear that fossil fuels are damaging our planet, so it’s important to find a way to replace them with something cleaner and more sustainable. We use  fossil fuels in almost everything we do. But what if we found a way to replace them with water? Converting water into energy is a great way to reduce green house gases entering the atmosphere. Building more hydropower facilities will not only  create jobs, but it’s also environmentally friendly, reducing our reliance on fossil fuels and helping us to develop more sustainable practices.

Solar energy is becoming more and more popular, as it is a sustainable way to produce electricity. Not only is it environmentally friendly, but it also helps reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.  Solar panel use is one of the most advanced forms of solar technology. If we want to see a future where renewables are used more prevalently, then we need to make solar panels more accessible to everyone. It’s not too late to help our planet, but we need to start now.
