Climate change is global warming. The world is getting hotter, and we’re accelerating the process. Recent decades have been the hottest on record the hottest on record, and whilst many sceptics will say the sun is causing the heat but the true fact is that the sun’s heat and the climate have been going in opposite directions for over 35 years.
The issue though isn’t the world killing us; it’s us.
A rapidly warming climate will make some places wetter and others drier. This could affect the quality and quantity of available food on the table of every single person on the planet. Years ago, Russian president Vladimir Putin stated climate change would benefit Russia due to the high amounts of newly farmable land. To clarify, however, Putin later confirmed his fears that“Caused by global warming, hurricanes, droughts, floods and other anomalies are the source of economic damage.”
We’ve all heard the facts that a hotter climate leads to the rising sea levels – glaciers are melting and adding to an already flooding arctic. Some theorise that this may be the year of the “Blue Ocean Event” The Blue Ocean would see the Arctic Ocean as practically ice-less.
So what can we do?
Well sorry to be dooming but there is very little. Turning off your high-powered electrical devices and using less power is a start. Ultimately, until everyone has enough money to eat better and drive electric cars, we’re stuck and it’s only going to get worse.
