Meaningful Action On The Climate Crisis
There is a thin line between the climate crisis and climate change. Since both look at the consequences of global warming in totality; the difference is the same.
Climate crisis needs urgent action, if not; the consequences have adverse effects on humanity and natural phenomenon.
The current climate pattern change concerning the continental and oceanic landmass is mostly a result of human influence on planet earth.
However, technological advancement in the industrial revolution also plays a part in this.
The call for action requires an in-depth focus on the causes and better ways to reduce the emission without compromising on the development agenda. The most common practice is the use of alternative energy sources, which reduces the pressure on the natural solar energy.
Causes of the climate crisis
Carbon dioxide’s mission, among other gases to the atmosphere, plays a significant role in interfering with the ozone layer.
As much as the industrial revolution is a blessing, gas emissions have a detrimental effect on the planet.
For example, hydrocarbons are worse in terms of the destruction of the ozone layer than even carbon dioxide.
Most industries use electricity for power generation; electricity production uses over 80 percent of the renewable energy sources- hydropower, nuclear power, and geo power.
All these sources put more pressure on the environment. The alternative sources include the use of non-renewable energy, which are safe and friendly to the environment.
As we look at the environment, aquatic life and natural waters also fall in the same category. Industries emit waste directly to the seas, which affect marine life.
It is, for this reason, most companies must have a health and environment certificate as proof of how they save the environment as they do business.
Moreover, an environmental impact assessment is a must-do activity before the commencement of any industrial project.
It looks at the advantage and disadvantages of both the human and physical environment about their work.
The call for action
- The policy of emission of dangerous gases to the atmosphere
- Capacity building on industry players to opt environmentally-friendly options
- Using green energy wherever possible
- Ban in the use of the plastic bag
- Green House Effect
The primary natural source of energy on the planet is the sun. There is a minimum amount of solar radiation requires; if not, it depletes the ozone layer.
The perforation of the ozone layer means a high amount of ultraviolet rays, which cause other challenges.
One of them is high temperatures, which interfere with the normal hydrological cycle. It explains why we have heatwaves, earthquakes, and adverse natural calamities on the earth’s surface.
Do you know that the sun rays directly hits the ground, the absorbed back, and the greenhouse gases?
It is this heat that causes havoc when it goes beyond the required limit.
The call for action
- Use of energy-efficient alternatives
- Focus on recycling of products
- Planting of trees to increase the amount of “good” gas to the atmosphere
- Human Activities
Human practices in land use negatively affect the earth’s reflection process. Deforestation, poor agricultural practices, urbanization desertification, and radioactivity are dangerous activities affecting the ozone layer.
Moreover, they change the thinning of the ozone layer among exerting hazardous gases into the atmosphere.
The call for action
- Empowerment of best human practices that safeguard the environment
- Environmental and conservation practices
- Ban on environment depletion practices through law enforcement officers
- Reduction of direct emission to the atmosphere
Moral Action on Climate is an organization focussed on ensuring your environment is as natural as possible despite the industrial and technological advancement.
They go an extra mile to task industries and companies to support this noble course through all manner of sponsorships.
They go an extra mile and ask the government to put sanctions and bans in areas where dialogue fails to take center stage.
Handling a climate crisis is a collective responsibility, either as an individual or as an organization.
Whether you work on it in a small or big way, as long as you have a common goal- lets come and save the environment.
