What is climate change?

The Earth’s climate is changing and the effects of these changes are becoming more pronounced. The global climate can be seen in many different ways such as warming air, rising sea levels, increasing temperatures, and melting ice caps. The most important thing we can do to help fight climate change is to reduce our carbon footprint. This includes reducing the amount of energy we use, driving less, and eating less red meat.

The human contribution to climate change

In order to drastically reduce the effects of climate change, we need to cut the amount of greenhouse gas emissions that we produce. There are many ways to do this but the most common way is by reducing the number of cars on the road. We can also build more public transportation and create more green spaces for people to go when they want to take a break from their day.

Climate Change Solutions:

Climate change is a global issue that affects everyone and everything. On September 23, 2015, Secretary of State John Kerry said that climate change “threatens to reverse progress in development.” Luckily, there are many ways to help prevent and reverse the negative effects of climate change. For example, more people are recycling as opposed to throwing items in the trash. This reduces the amount of garbage going into landfills which means less pollution in our air and water.

Global Efforts to reduce greenhouse gases and slow global warming

Climate change is a threat to our planet and as human beings it is our responsibility to take care of the earth. We need to make sure that we do not harm any other living thing on this planet. One way to do this is by reducing the amount of greenhouse gases that are released into the atmosphere. We need to reduce these emissions by making sure that nothing we use has them in them which means buying things like hybrid cars, solar panels, LED lights and other things that have less of an impact on our environment.

We need to educate others and make sure to protect the environment by recycling, reducing water usage, and other methods. If we all do our part, we can reduce the effect that climate change will have on future generations.
