My Take on Climate Change by City Tech Blogger Jeff Mao

In the past recent years, I have observed that the winters are gradually getting warmer than ever. I recall during past Christmas holidays, the winter was not frigid, there were also true white Christmases. During that season, it was never been this mild. Until now. The warmer winters not only disrupt the flow of the seasonal pattern, but also results to catastrophically severe weather events such as hurricanes, droughts, tornadoes, etc. From what I have learned, last month, Great Britain has experienced unprecedented heatwaves in their history where the temperature reached to a whopping 40°C (104 F) in London. Also, during the same time, in some areas of China, the irrigation system has dried up due to drought, falling to the brink, due to the intense dry heat resulting into cracked soils. What we ought to do is reduce greenhouse gas  emissions from vehicles and factories. We must really invest billions of dollars on electric vehicles. Furthermore, to ensure that we have clean and enough potable water, this planet must stop littering everywhere, especially in our waterways which feed our reservoirs. We must consider practices that are sustainable and stop burning fossil fuels and littering which greatly contribute to climate change.
