My Take on Climate Change: By City Tech Blogger Lukas Klertiashvili

My regard to climate change is only growing day by day, as the consideration to adapt and mitigate is increasing. I began to notice climate change due to the news of rising sea levels, which is alarming as most cities could be covered in water, especially in my borough of Brooklyn. The seasonal changes that are being experienced in NYC right now is another factor which I never thought would happen. In the past few years, the winter seasons were normally cold but now they are with average temperatures being 60°F (15°C) as of February 2023 and with the last summer of 2022 averaging 85°F (30°C). The notice that it is getting warmer is a reality. The higher number of days with humidity in July and August make it harder to go outside in the middle of the day. Overtime, due to these factors I’ve been witnessing, lead me to focus on sustainable ways to lower my carbon footprint. For transportation, I’ve been driving less over time as my car burns 415 grams of CO2 per mile. I have been on alert for the introduction of synthetic fuels, which are made using only carbon dioxide and water. In the future I will use it to save the environment. I will use conventional vehicles instead of buying an electric car.

My Take on Climate Change

As disasters increase in both frequency and severity worldwide, many scientists had anticipated these events and provided evidence supporting the reality of climate change.

My Take on Climate Change

Climate change has been responsible for affecting crops by the frequent change in temperature, increase in rainfall and more droughts. Note that climate is not the same as weather; weather is precipitation and temperature occurring at one single time, as climate occurs over a long period  of time.
