My Take On Climate Change By City Tech Blogger John Anthony

My opinion on our current situation regarding climate change is that we have managed to do catastrophic damage to our planet all within a record time of about 100 years. Due to our carbon footprint and the release of toxic chemicals into our atmosphere, we have managed to rapidly degrade our ozone layer. The loss of the ozone layer is causing a chain of events that is rapidly increasing our global temperature, melting polar ice caps, affecting our jet stream, and making weather more extreme. Personally, we’ve seen the result of this by getting hit with more severe hurricanes and that New York City has not gotten snow yet and the temperature reaching 60-65 degrees Fahrenheit now, in February. More action has to be taken in order to slow down or reverse the side effects of climate change. With the implementation of hybrid cars as well as fully electric vehicles, this would help the cause. However, there are still millions of cars that pollute the environment, as well as factories and nuclear plants that continue to pollute. If more money were to be spent on renewable energy sources and on research into carbon capture implementation in factories, overall pollution would decrease and we could start the transition to a more green energy production.
