Today, 24 October 2022 we celebrate the international day against climate change. An initiative that aims to raise awareness among the world’s population about the harmful and devastating effects of climate change on the planet.
“Climate crisis”, “global warming” and “climate change” are some of the most present conversations we are facing nowadays.
Climate change is a natural process that deals with long-term changes in global temperatures and weather patterns on our planet. These changes have existed since the beginning of the earth’s history. However, we are currently facing a particular situation, a global climate crisis.
The pressure that humans have applied to the environment for more than a century has led to the accelerated and uncontrolled climate change that we are currently facing.
In addition, one of the biggest problems of current climate change is the increase of so-called greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, mainly from the burning of fossil fuels such as oil and coal. Their accumulation in the gaseous layer of our planet intensifies the greenhouse effect that occurs naturally on Earth, without which life would not be possible, but which, in excess, can affect the global climate.
For decades, global institutions treated it as an issue to be resolved in the future. However, studies by the United Nations (UN) show that serious impacts and irreparable consequences have already been generated.
Many studies claim that this phenomenon is responsible for the melting of glaciers, the rise in sea level, abrupt changes in ecosystems or the disappearance of some species on our planet.
