My Take on Climate Change by City Tech Blogger Fareen Bacchus

My Take On Climate Change is that climate change is real and it’s happening everyday, naturally and with human activity. One thing that I noticed is that our winters aren’t as harsh as ten years ago. Now we tend to have shorter and less harsh winters. Our summers are also hotter than usual. For the past three plus years we are having more and longer lasting heatwaves. We are also getting heavier rainfalls which can cause flooding in some areas.

Climate change can be reversed. It will take time and all of our effort, maybe more. Here in the U.S., carpooling is a great idea to help reduce our carbon footprint. Using mass transit is a very helpful way to achieve this goal. Riding a bike to work is both good for the environment and our health.

According to our class discussion the “wet is getting wetter and the dry is getting drier”, we are having more dry areas which are causing dry wildfires. These fires happen in dry areas and are uncontrollable. They tend to go in any direction damaging many animal habitats and our homes. In Trinidad, our rainy season is wetter than usual and the floods are causing mass devastation. We are losing our crops, land and personal items due to heavy flooding.

Climate Change is real and it’s happening everyday. We must take a stand and help the earth get back on track.
