I’ve even seen some written form that says “Help our Climate Crisis”. I catch the meaning of this sentence which directly says that we need to help our nature. The pamphlet’s goal is to ask our help to save this planet to reduce extreme earth temperature.
In fact, a few years our planet’s weather condition is uncontrollable, sometimes hot then becomes hotter. From my explanation above we can call this as global warming then. Global warming is the increased level of earth temperature caused by the impact of the ‘greenhouse effect’. Greenhouse effect is the process when carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases collect in the atmosphere and absorb sunlight and solar radiation that have bounced off the earth’s surface. We know that the gases should escape from the atmosphere but unfortunately the gases trap then makes the planet get hotter. Another aspect that can cause global warming is the burning of fossil fuels to make electricity is the largest source of trapping pollution. So when we feel so hot even the weather is cool we can say that it causes global warming or when we go to the mountain we feel hot it might be the cause of global warming. Try to check your browser and get the information from National Geographic for example. This organization gives us information about our earth starting from nature’s appearance until the information about life around us.
The important thing we must know is what are the impacts of global warming? Indirectly people who live in the city will feel the impact because they live in the area full of air pollution and also coexist with the huge building which uses AC (air conditioner). AC is another thing that can cause global warming because of its energy. Look at the city then compare with the land in the village. On the other hand, the air in the village is still fresh because they still have the trees and there is no air pollution. Actually the impact of global warming is felt across the globe like in Antarctica that has been losing about 134 billion metric tons of ice per year since 2002 (source from Google). Scientists are always learning more about the impacts of global warming and the result is our planet will change if we do not do something to prevent or at least reduce global warming. What are the other impacts of global warming? There are:
- Melting glaciers and early snow melt.
- Rising sea levels will lead to coastal flooding.
- The burning of agriculture and fisheries.
- Disruption of animal habitat then makes them go extinct.
- Allergies, asthma, and infection disease outbreaks will become more common due to the higher levels of air pollution, and the spread conditions favorable to pathogens and mosquitoes.
After knowing what are the impacts of global warming then how does the government do to reduce the impact of global warming? They try to compose alternative energy to reduce the carbon pollution. Besides, law affirmation must be enforced for wild forest loggers. Not government should announce the importance of saving the environment by using energy wisely. Globally, they should convey and give understanding to the people of the dangers caused by global warming.
Do we have a role to reduce global warming? Yes we have. We must be aware that global warming is a serious problem in front of us because we have felt the impacts. First, save the electric energy and use it wisely. Second, reduce air pollution by using public transportation if we want to go somewhere. Third, don’t disturb the sustainability of the environment like cutting down the trees or hunting animals. The last is to invite your friends to save our planet because this is our planet where we are born, grew up, feel love, and be grateful for God’s blessings.
