What are the Causes of Climate Change and How to Mitigate It
Climate change has today become the object of global attention and has been a topic for heated debate.
Climate change is the topic of the decade, if not the issue of the century. History will not only judge our generation on our handling and propagation of climate change, but also on the efforts we have put in place to mitigate it. Climate change has led to mutant or evolving climate and weather patterns that have, in turn, led to increased climate oddities and extremes. Heatwaves have ravaged the world, and just yesterday, death valley in California recorded 54.4 degrees Celsius or 130 degrees Fahrenheit, the highest-ever recorded temperature. I don’t think we can appreciate what that means.
Climate Protests in the Wake of Adverse Climatic Effects
Climate change has today become the object of global attention and has been a topic for heated debate. There have also been numerous protests, including the Fridays for Future protests by school children, to encourage global leaders to instigate climate change-related legislation. Climate change was previously appreciated as global warming and has now evolved to include other phenomena such as the rise of ocean levels, the melting of polar ice caps and glaciers, and unusual and extreme weather patterns. The predictability of weather that was previously enjoyed all over the world is today becoming increasingly non-existent as climate change propagates unusual and destructive weather patterns.
