My Take on Climate Change By City Tech Blogger Hyung Yang

Climate change is an increasingly alerting issue affecting the globe today. Threatening factors like higher global temperature, rising sea levels, changes in seasons with longer summers, warmer winters are characterizing the current global phenomenon. The detrimental effects of global climate change are conveying many concerns, such as destructive impacts on ecosystems, more frequent damages from unusual natural disasters. Immediate actions are inevitable and should quickly be implemented. In order to combat the challenges that we have faced, and are to face, we have possible solutions to be implemented.

Ultimately, the battle against the climate change is equivalent to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Greenhouse gas emissions results in the steep uprise of global temperature. There are efforts of transitioning to greener energy sources, such as wind and solar energy. It is currently undergoing transition which are supported by governmental policies, which incentivize service providers and users.


Fig.1 and Fig.2 indicate that the energy production by solar and wind energy has been noticeably increasing for the past decade.

Additionally, the general population will have to contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by utilizing more public transportation, reducing wasteful energy consumption, and usage of disposable products.

In conclusion, climate change is a major concern that requires immediate action. It is impacting our natural habitats, agriculture, and overall well-being. However, there are solutions that can be implemented to curb this problem. By reducing greenhouse gas emissions, implementing sustainable farming practices, and reducing our own carbon footprint, we can work towards a healthier planet for ourselves and future generations.
