My Take: Our Fight on Climate Change by a City Tech Blogger

Climate change is a topic not many people ponder when going about their daily lives. Although we experience the effects everyday, we like to feign ignorance to the damage we are causing to the planet. I am, of course, no exception to this and like to think that everything will be alright and nothing will change if I don’t do anything to help. However, if the extreme heat of the summer of 2022 showed me anything it’s that everything will not be ok. It was a summer with record breaking high temperatures, floods that occurred around the world that displaced and took the lives of many people, rising sea levels and much more. As the world continues to adapt to the changes the climate has brought we also need to mitigate its effects. People can do simple things such as taking public transportation instead of their cars to lessen the amount of carbon dioxide emitted into the air, use less energy if possible, or even help spread the word by being more active whenever they can. Cities should continue to find ways to implement renewable energy into everyday operations and promote more environmentally friendly plans for people to follow. Everyday time is ticking away for us to help the planet and the future of our children.
