Climate Change: We must all do the needful
Here is a post which is going to discuss the issues of climate change in our society. A call to action is needed for all on the issue of climate change. The government, private sectors and everyone in the society have their unique roles to play in making the world a safer place.
I present you with an exclusive interview with Duke Oluwamurewa Oluwanifemi LLB (HONS) Ife. He is a Zealous & Determined youth whose aim is to impart and add value to humanity in every ramification. A law graduate from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, Nigeria. He is the CEO of Climate change/Environmental & Human right Ambassador. A platform where he is campaigning against the risk associated with climate Change/Environmental & Human Right abuse & Proffering solutions to them so that the world will be a better place to live. While in his undergraduate days, he was elected a justice of the House of Lords of the Law Student’s Society [LSS] Of the Faculty of law OAU Ile-Ife. His joy is to see that the world becomes a better place and He also believes that with visionary, focused and unadulterated youths, Nigeria and the world in General will be safe from Hazards.
Here we go…
What is climate change?
Climate change, therefore, is a change in the typical or average weather of a region or city. For example this could be a change in a region’s average annual rainfall or it could be a change in a city’s average temperature for a given month or season. Climate change is also a change in Earth’s overall climate. It can also mean a change in Earth’s average temperature, for example. Or it could be a change in Earth’s typical precipitation patterns.
What Is the Difference Between Weather and Climate?
Weather is the short-term changes we see in temperature, clouds, precipitation, humidity and wind in a region or a city. Weather can vary greatly from one day to the next, or even within the same day. In the morning the weather may be cloudy and cool. But by afternoon it may be sunny and warm. The climate of a region or city is its weather averaged over many years. This is usually different for different seasons. For example, a region or city may tend to be warm and humid during the hot season. But it may tend to be cold and snowy during the cold season.
What Is Causing Earth’s Climate to Change?
Some causes of climate change are natural. These include changes in Earth’s orbit and in the amount of energy coming from the sun. Ocean changes and volcanic eruptions are also natural causes of climate change. Most scientists think that recent warming can’t be explained by nature alone. Most scientists say it’s very likely that most of the warming since the mid-1900s is due to the burning of coal, oil and gas. Burning these fuels is how we produce most of the energy that we use every day. This burning adds heat-trapping gases, such as carbon dioxide, into the air. These gases are called greenhouse gases.
What is the hazard of Earth’s Warming Climate?
Some hazard of earth warming climate are already are occurring. For example, sea levels are rising, and snow and ice cover is decreasing. Rainfall patterns and growing seasons are changing. Further sea-level rise and melting of snow and ice are likely as Earth warms. The warming climate likely will cause more floods, droughts and heat waves. The heat waves may get hotter, and hurricanes may get stronger.
What can we do about Climate Change?
We must take preventive steps to limit or reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. These steps include using energy more efficiently and using more clean energy. Clean energy is energy that puts less or no greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. The sun, wind and water are sources of clean energy. Some nations, states and communities are planning for climate change impacts that may be unavoidable. For example, some coastal areas are planning for flooding and land loss that may result from rising sea levels.
How can we help ourselves out of climate change?
We can help ourselves out of climate change if the government does the needful by making sure that less energy equipments are available to the people for usage. I mean it high time we begin to use solar and other less energy tools. This can only come into place when the government is serious and concern about the health and welfare of her citizenry. Also everyone must learn not to heat up the climate by keeping to the climate etiquette For example, turn off lights and TVs when you leave a room and turn off the water when brushing your teeth. You can help by planting trees, which absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Another way to help is by learning about Earth and its climate. The more you know about how Earth’s climate works, the more you’ll be able to help solve problems related to climate change and health hazards associated with it, We must propagate this message to all and sundry and try every possible means to make our world a climate change free.
Your advice to the world on climate change
My advice to everyone is that we must be climate conscious and we must plant trees, and cultivate the habit of using less energy equipment, for example solar energy so that we can avoid rick associated with climate change such as floods, drought, forest changes, forest fire events and heat waves which are expected to increase in the future if care is not taken but I believe that together we shall break the chains of impossibilities.
