MY TAKE: Our Ignorance of the Big Picture by City Tech Blogger Gordon Zheng

I am pretty sure almost everyone on Earth knows or at least has heard about global warming, but one thing most of them don’t understand is the severity of global warming if it continues. Sure, you can’t see the change of sea levels rising. You also can’t see higher temperature currently. However, it will carry a greater impact in the far future when the next generation will have to deal with it. Even though we know about the changes, and the rise in temperature from all the data we have collected, we aren’t taking it seriously enough. We aren’t doing enough. It greatly concerns me that from looking at many articles and posts, around half of Americans don’t believe in the negative impacts of global warming, are still ignorant of it, and saying how it’s one of the earth’s natural cycles. Weather conditions are becoming harsher in certain regions. There are heavier rainfalls, floods in south-east Asia and dryer seasons that can cause droughts which will have many adverse effects. It’s like dominoes. Once one thing falls, it will create a chain effect that will lead to many much worse scenarios if we don’t do anything about it. But as the awareness of global warming grows, we are starting to see the minor effects of it. Many people, companies and scientists are working to help mitigate the effects and see how we can slow or reverse the changes we have made. There are introductions of new renewable resources and energy sources. Also, there are international policies and agencies working to help us adapt and mitigate climate change. We all have our differences as humans, whether it be race, political views or gender, but one thing we share together is the earth.
