My Take on Climate Change: Let’s Remain Optimistic

In case there were still doubts, climate change is happening and taking place quickly. Humanity is responsible for this ongoing change and although we already live with the consequences, we can still do something to help make a positive impact. Over the years, human waste was become a global problem. Over consumerism is one of the main adversities to  the climate change. Planet Earth fights against human waste, machinery construction and production. Paper, containers, wrappers, cars, planes, ships, trucks, and fabrication machinery are constant detriments to the environment. Landfill, greenhouse gases, co2 emission, and soil contamination has been a consequence of human developments. Therefore, the world is becoming increasingly susceptible to wildfires, droughts, floods, and hurricanes. 

 While the statistics are concerning, numerous experts remain optimistic, suggesting that we haven’t yet reached a stage of irreversible damage. Although climate change is inevitable, there’s still room for positive action through minor adjustments in our daily lives. For instance, opting for bicycles over cars can significantly reduce carbon emissions. Additionally, practicing reusability and mindfulness in our consumption habits can lead to waste reduction, resulting in fewer paper or container disposals in our trash. Another viable approach is promoting artisanal manufacturing, which can help curb overproduction and minimize the environmental impact caused by machinery emissions.
