Climate Change is affecting life on earth, the seasons are shifting and temperature is rising same as sea levels.
The most dangerous consequences of climate change are : Higher temperature, changing landscape, wild life at risk, rising seas, economic losses, stronger storms and increased storm damage and increase risk of drought, fire and floods.
One of the examples about drought is Folsom lake in California and lake Powell in Utah that supplies water to millions of homes in Arizona and Utah , dehydration is one of the most dangerous thing a human can face.
Carbon is one of the main things that affect the climate so there are several ways to help our earth like use a bike or walk instead of driving a car, use compact fluorescent light bulbs, recycle and use recycled products because we can save trees and lets them continue to reduce climate change naturally as they remain in the forests, plant trees because they absorb carbon dioxide from the air and use it as their energy source, producing oxygen for us to breathe, try to reduce using air conditions and heaters.
Going to beaches during high temperature is very dangerous we must take into consideration how to prevent being affected , wear hats, clothes, sunscreens … and try avoiding sun exposure.
High temperature increases death, illness, rising seas, storm intensity like hurricanes and tropical storms because they get their energy from warm water and many other risks.
About 50% of the global population lives near the coast. Wetlands and coastal forests are being destroyed by habitat destruction and land use changes. We can recognize that climate change is reshaping human civilization so we can determine the future of our species by how we respond to this situation.
