The Climate Change Guide

Climate change is mankind's greatest challenge and we must act together or else face the consequences.

If the world fails to take action on this planetary emergency, over 100 million people will die from climate change by 2030 (Source).

Already, millions of people are dying each year as a direct result of global warming and air pollution. If no action is taken, this number will only rise drastically in the upcoming decades.

However, the reality is that our planet itself is not at stake, it is the biosphere and the species that dwell in it.

There is now too much evidence to ignore it any longer. Also, there are many facts of this planetary crisis that are quite alarming to say the least.

The Effects

Already, hundreds of species have been affected and have already started to migrate towards the poles.

Many more will become extinct in the near future.

Unfortunately, there are many more effects that are occurring right now.

For instance, in addition to record high temperatures, there will be an increase in the frequency and ferocity of

Climate Change

It will also lead to

In truth, this crisis goes even beyond that: it will affect every single ecosystem on the face of this planet by altering

  • atmospheric pressure
  • cloudiness
  • humidity
  • precipitation
  • temperature
  • and wind patterns

What is Causing This?

We are.

Our production of greenhouse gases has plagued the atmosphere since the dawn of the industrial revolution, increasing the concentration of carbon dioxide from 280 to almost 400 ppm.

There is more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere now than at any time in the last 800,000 years.

Since then, our planet has increasingly warmed as a direct result of the greenhouse effect.

In fact, the top ten hottest years on record have all occurred since 1998, the hottest one of all was 2015.

Factory Pollution

More specifically, some of the many causes of this crisis include:

What Can We Do?

Fortunately, it is not too late.

There are many ways in which we can help solve the climate crisis.

Some of things we can do include:

  • Recycling/Reducing/Reusing
  • Composting
  • Using Alternative Energy
  • Becoming Energy Efficient
  • Using Public Transportation More Often
  • Consuming Less Meat
  • Planting Trees
  • Buying Products Locally

Furthermore, these actions will provide several benefits to your health and will even save you money.

More importantly, it will help millions of people around the world who are, or will soon be, facing the dire consequences of climate change.
