It is understandable that people have become a lot busier in previous years. For reasons self-explanatory, the financial demands of families and individuals continue to be rising. But beneath all the struggle or grandeur, lays the undeniable truth that is climate change and global warming.
While many groups and leaders have somehow become successful in their eco-friendly movements and endeavors, there is still a significant number of people who remain dismissive or insensitive when it comes to growing concerns over the state of our planet. Whether it be because they are too busy or plain aloof, this in itself all the more makes fighting off global warming a lot more difficult than it already is.
The other half have taken this whole thing a lot more seriously and have applied many changes to help preserve the planet and its inhabitants’ health. From freely using disposable plasticwares and plastic bags to resorting to paperware and reusable bags for grocery, the effort is surely noticeable across the globe. This alone is a huge steppingstone towards the continued recovery of the Earth. Various sanctuaries for endangered species and the innovations in energy-sufficient homes and vehicles—there is definitely a lot of progress in all of this.
This is perhaps the response of people to discovering the perilous effects of climate change brought about by global warming. Rising temperatures melting off the polar ice caps, leading to rising sea levels is something that we all cannot simply ignore. Longer and hotter summers across the planet has its saddening effect on agriculture as well. Animals in the arctic either migrating or dying of hunger due to it. The effects of the global phenomenon is not only limited to these. In fact, it might just be the beginning.
There is no better time to start than now. Each effort of each person counts, no matter how minute or shallow it might be. The collective effort of societies, governments, and of course, families are needed to counter the ill-effects of global warming, a struggle we have placed upon ourselves, habitats, and the planet. We must take accountability to better manage or potentially fully cure the fast growing global impairment.
A balance in all environmental aspects is key. A slight imbalance would pose additional dangers. And this is why we must do our part—find out more about climate change through the internet, spread the verified knowledge we have come to know to people we love, utilize the internet to impart wisdom to others, there is certainly a lot of things we can do from the comfort of our homes. Supporting local communities and their eco-friendly efforts will also be a beautiful avenue to start in.
And above all, we must work together and not apart. We must take the initiative, apply the knowledge, and inspire others. Not tomorrow, but today. Because before we know it, it might just be too late. Let us stop waiting and act now. Let’s give back to our planet and the generations to come.
