We are the next generation.What can we do to lead/influence the climate changechallenge to ensure a sustainable future for thecountry and the planet?
The third planet from the sun.The only planet that supports life.Just a planet? No, something much more, our home…If anyone is asked, “would you be ready to destroy your home just for your comfort?” people would think the person asking this needs to be escorted to the nearest mentalinstitution. Our homes are the ultimate comfort that we can have.But then why are we ready to destroy this blessing called planet earth?Why are we putting at stake the futures of millions of children just for a few “creaturecomforts”?The choice is after all upon the governing heads of states and their colleagues, thateither they can go on with the “march of progress” and leave a world that won’t havewater enough for everyone to drink…Or You can slow down the march and look around at what it has caused.It is not about “let’s all live like hermits…” the time is not so bad…It is just being considerate about the surroundings and the future.
The problem
Many people have asked this but the only answer they get is, “It is not our problem because we are not affected by it”/ “It is not our problem because we did not start it...”The time for the blame game is long past.If people are ready to give a destroyed world, mangled by their greed to their children,then please let me not stop the blame game…For others, let’s see what we are dealing with.When the temperature rises, we feel uncomfortable, to say the least. But over here weare not talking about the heat of the summer months, which can be forgotten by goinginto your room and switching on your A.C.’s. No, this is about the averagetemperature which will affect you throughout the year. You were worried about theeconomic meltdown? Take a look at the global meltdown.The daily variation in temperature can be as much as 5° Celsius. But in this, we arelooking at variations of not more than 0.05° Celsius. If there is an anomaly in this,even as small as that, it can cause hurricanes, the likes of which were seen in NewOrleans. But these years, the variation is going above 1.33° Celsius. This would be bad for our health, at the very least.With warmer temperatures, there will be more evaporation, leading to less water inthe soil which can only mean one very ominous thing, drought.If there is more water vapour in the air, it means that there is more heat absorbingmaterial ready in the air, other than what we humans already release.That would lead to more rise in temperature.And this would go on until either we do something about it or we end up fried, andthat is putting it lightly.
