My Take On Climate Change

Although climate change is spoken about all over the media, I feel that we have not been doing enough to combat the ever-changing climate change occurring globally. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), temperatures globally “…rose about 1.98°F (1.1°C) from 1901 to 2020, but climate change refers to more than an increase in temperature. It also includes sea level rise, changes in weather patterns like drought and flooding, and much more. Things that we depend upon and value — water, energy, transportation, wildlife, agriculture, ecosystems, and human health — are experiencing the effects of a changing climate.” (NOAA). All these changes occurred within the past 119 years due to ignoring the causes of our rapid climate change. Efforts to resolve this issue are being put into effect such as using electric vehicles, recycling, and implementing renewable sources of energy such as wind, sunlight, and water.

However, I feel that more needs to be done to even start approaching a resolution to this issue. There are still a couple of things we are not stopping such as the greenhouse gases being emitted every year by fossil fuels and other non-renewable sources of energy. Additionally, with forests being cut down for our gain, resource-wise more carbon dioxide is being released into the air, producing more greenhouse gas that will raise the global temperature even further. I think once major threats to our climate such as these are gone, we can start to have a chance to fix this problem. Until then, I feel that temperatures will continue to rise all over the world and will cause future catastrophic events.
