My Take on Climate Change: Where Do We Stand? by City Tech Blogger Janrobert Paulino

Just like every year that passes by, climate change is just getting worse and worse every year. Back when we were dealing with the prime of Covid we saw some positive results. Due to travel restrictions we saw a huge decrease in air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions all of which are big contributors to climate change. You look around though and it’s like everything is back to “normal”. Some still don’t believe there was a pandemic and now that mandates are being lifted the little progress we made just by staying home has been reversed. The reality is that the earth is just getting warmer and warmer each year, leading to potential flooding and the ice caps melting.

It’s never too late to make some changes. The biggest thing that companies, countries, and individuals around the world alike can do is strive to be more climate positive instead of merely joining the movement to transition to net-zero emissions. What I mean by this is that they should directly reduce their own carbon footprint rather than investing in carbon offsets to even out the amount of carbon emissions they produce. All in all 2022 isn’t going good and 2023 won’t look any better and until big companies and corporations start doing their part we won’t really get anywhere.
