This essay is for those who scoff at climate change activists and think it doesn’t affect them. 


Here’s news for everyone : climate change is real and it can be nasty. 


It all started when our industries and daily appliances started releasing greenhouse gases. What is a greenhouse gas you might ask. Well,  they are gasses that trap heat. I know that doesn’t sound so bad since we all love a nice, sunny day filled with vibrant energy, but this trapping of heat is not a good thing. It thins out the ozone layer which protects us from the harmful rays of the sun. If this continues, it will become so bad that when you go out of home you will be back with a sunburn.

This heat also leads to global warming that could cause floods, tsunamis and in some regions this can also cause loss of water and droughts.

This will mean a great loss to farmers since they require a lot of water for agriculture. Climate change can have significant effects on pollinators, which play a crucial role in plant reproduction and the maintenance of biodiversity. Climate change can also cause risks of landslides and soil erosion in certain areas. When excessive rainfall occurs, the soil becomes wet, rocks get damp and break, this process is called weathering where water and wind destroy land and excess rains can make landslides.

Sounds scary, right? Don’t worry. Every villain has a weakness, and in this case, climate change can be stopped but only if we stop producing carbon dioxide. We can use electric cars, use cycles to cover close distances and reduce air-conditioning.
