So, apparently money is being considered more important than the lives of 7.53 billion people by our leaders. It is not being taken seriously not only by the leaders but the people too.
There are people working to save the humanity like Bill Gates, Greta Thunberg, James Hansen, Hoesung Lee and many more.
Use your car less, whenever possible, instead use sustainable transportation, such as bicycling, or use public transportation more often. In the case of long-distance travel, trains are more sustainable than airplanes, which cause a great deal of the CO2 emitted into the atmosphere. If you’re into cars, remember that every kilometer that you increase your speed will considerably increase CO2 emissions and expenses. According to the CE, each liter of fuel that your car uses, equals 2.5 kilos of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere.
Take a look at the labels on your appliances, and never leave them on standby. Always adjust the thermostat for heating and air conditioning. By being careful how we use home appliances, we can save energy and, of course, money at the end of the month.
– As far as possible, avoid anything that may be a fire hazard.
– If you want to buy wood, choose wood with a certification or seal showing its sustainable origin.
– Plant a tree! Throughout its life, it can absorb up to a ton of CO2.
Demand that they take measures toward a more sustainable life, any way that you can: promote renewable energy, regulatory measures such as properly labelling products (fishing method used, labels that specify product origins, whether or not they are transgenic, etc.), promote more sustainable public transportation, promote the use of bicycles and other non-polluting transportation methods in the city, correctly manage waste through recycling/reuse, etc….
Many countries and people are bringing big changes for climate like:
Rooftops on new buildings built in commercial zones in France must either be partially covered in plants or solar panels, according to a law approved on Thursday.
Over 25% of the Philippines are covered by forests. … One fifth of the country’s forests have protected status, and nearly half are managed by local communities (FAO 2015). Illegal logging is widespread in the country. However, the government has been putting significant effort into law enforcement to tackle the problem.
Bill Gates is backing a new venture which aims to turn sunlight into a source of heat exceeding 1,000C that could help replace fossil fuels.The technology could even reach temperatures of 1,500C to split hydrogen molecules from water to create a fossil-free gas to warm homes, fuel cars and power factories. He also unveiled a futuristic toilet Tuesday that doesn’t need water or sewers and uses chemicals to turn human waste into fertilizer.
Thunberg first became known for her activism, she began spending her school days outside the Swedish parliament to call for stronger action on global warming by holding up a sign saying (in Swedish) “School strike for the climate”. Soon, other students engaged in similar protests in their own communities. Together, they organised a school climate strike movement under the name Fridays for Future.
There are many other people working on climate change, but it isn’t enough. Every one of us has to change our lifestyles in order to save humanity.
