Our Earth’s climate has changed throughout history. Since the start of the Industrial Revolution in 1750, the Earth’s average temperature has risen. Now it has changed faster than ever before. Climate change is because of greenhouse emissions due to human activities. We burn a lot of fossil fuels, including coal, oil and wood, to power our homes, factories, vehicles, etc. We burn fossil fuels to run our normal lives. These burning fuels release large amounts of carbon dioxide. Scientists say that 95% of carbon dioxide released is the result of human activities and the carbon dioxide released has a direct impact due to the greenhouse effect. Greenhouse gasses occur naturally on our planet. They act like a blanket around the earth, trapping the sun’s heat to make it suitable for living. There are numerous negative impacts of climate change that can be felt at global scale which include- rise in sea level, extreme weather events like drought, hurricane, wildfire, excessive rainfall and heat in some areas, longer growing period etc.
In conclusion, we must take crucial steps to control climate change that has a significant negative impact across the world affecting the ecosystem, the economy and the environment. It is also the responsibility of every individual to take collective action to mitigate the worst effect of climate change and to create a sustainable future for ourselves and future generations.
