Let's talk about climate change
Dear readers, it is always good to dedicate articles related to climate change and emphasize on what is happening on our planet and the causes that cause such climatic instability, currently Venezuela is going through a rather compromised situation due to the fact that the rainy period has been prolonged due to some tropical waves that are hitting our region, specifically in our geographical area and in surrounding areas, river overflows continue to occur and therefore many towns and agricultural areas are under the waters, so far this year in many states some tragedies have occurred because of the rains, therefore, this installment focuses on talking a little about climate change.
How many times have you heard about climate change? What is global warming? How can we prevent pollution in the environment? The definition of climate change is quite broad and can be described as variations in temperature and weather conditions, these changes are related to factors such as: the production of greenhouse gases, industrial agriculture, chemicals among others. People are feeling the effects of climate change more than ever, the pace of global temperature rise is now unprecedented in recorded history, affecting the climate, water and air quality, agriculture and health.
The climate is changing, there is no doubt about that. We cannot afford to ignore the consequences of our actions any longer: greenhouse gas emissions, toxic products used in our daily lives and indifference to the environment. The climate is one of the most important things in our world, it determines the conditions of life on earth, people are responsible for changing the nature of the climate through some scientific technologies unfriendly to natural processes, energy production and consumption.
It could be said that climate change is the result of a long-term sustained increase in the average temperature of the atmosphere and the oceans of the entire Earth, this warming has been caused by greenhouse gases that have been emitted by human activities, mainly through carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the burning of coal, oil and gas, but also by forest fires and changes in land use, these gases are concentrated in the Earth's atmosphere which causes the earth to warm up or increase the temperature more than normal.
We have a titanic task every day to protect the environment, some actions could be simple and easy, others are halfway between the viable and the novel, there is only to agree on most scientific conclusions regarding natural conditions that are threatened by climate change to start talking about the measures that we can adopt as a society to alleviate the problem. Our actions can have a positive impact on these issues and can make a difference to change things. While there are many ways to address this problem, one approach that has proven effective is to make small changes in your daily routine such as turning off the lights when you leave a room and in productive activities implementing ecological strategies that enhance natural processes.
As stated above, climate change is increasing both the frequency and severity of extreme weather events, such as heat waves, droughts, floods and storms. People around the world are vulnerable to the effects of climate-related disasters every year. Some reports point out that the level of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere is increasing rapidly and the effects of this excessive accumulation can destabilize our living environment and the future of our civilization depends on our success in stopping it.
Dear readers, climate change is here and now, but it's not too late, it's time to act and make smarter decisions and taking action in our daily lives, sustainable development shows some viable alternatives to maintain our planet by addressing viable alternatives in the different production sectors, which is where many of these gases come from, such as, for example, agriculture that makes use of a large amount of toxic substances for food production.
Let us become an environmentally responsible society and develop technologies in accordance with the ecological context. Until a next delivery.
