Climate Crisis

Desmond Tutu quoted, "Never before in history have human beings been called on to act collectively in defense of the Earth." Well, now is the time as none of us are going to be untouched by the impacts of climate change. The global implications of climate change are causing the rise in temperature, melting of glaciers, rise in sea level, shift in plant and animal ranges, more intense heat waves, and much more. 

We know that the temperature of Earth has been varying ever since. Still, from the last 50 years, research shows that the temperature of Earth is only and only rising, and globally it has increased 1.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Carbon dioxide is the primary cause of the global rise in temperature. Human activities have increased the amount of carbon dioxide by nearly half since the 1960s. No natural cause explains the half-century warming trend because the sun's output cycle shifts after every 11 years, and due to volcanic eruptions, the planet cools off. Only carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases emitted by human activities have increased dramatically, forming a thick blanket in the atmosphere which traps the heat of the sun on Earth's surface and gives rise to the increase in temperature. 

So now we understood that carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas is the issue, but how? Because greenhouse gases are emitted naturally and are essential for the survival of humans and other living beings. But the fact that due to industrialization, deforestation, large scale agriculture, burning of fossil fuels, the increase in greenhouse gases has touched its global maxima in the last three million years. Guys, its time to take measures to ensure the safety of our planet as no challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change. 

Towards the end of the year 2016, statistics show that the ice extent was about 825,000 square miles smaller than the long term average, which is equal to the size of Alaska and California combined. These enormous losses give rise to global warming as sunlight is absorbed by the oceans rather than being reflected by the ice. 

Many activists have taken charge of the situation and are taking collective measures to ensure that more and more people join hands together and take action. One of the famous child activist named Greta Thunberg has put up a fight with the world to save the planet, and she quoted, "The climate crisis has already been solved. We already have the facts and solutions. All we have to do is wake up and change". We, the team of Trekmoss is doing the same by making sure that the word reaches every human being so that we can collaboratively fight the cause and make our planet a better place to live.
