Climate Change

The script of our planet has been choreographed by the climate which seems to be GODs manifestation on earth sustaining life in all its forms, changing naturally over long periods of time. There natural cycles of change have been over taker by a rapid rise in temperatures of the earth’s atmospheres commonly known as the’ ‘’GLOBAL WARMING’’ being caused by GREEN HOUSE EFFECT.

Green houses we often see and observe alongside loads in country side nurseries in the shape of temporary structure covered by plastic sheets/glass etc. These structures trap solar energy by letting the sun light in and prevent hast from escaping, enabling the enclosed plantation to survive extreme cold. Greenhouse gases work in the same way. In the absence of such a phenomenon the earth would be too and ultimately cooked to death. However this natural balance is being ruthlessly jeopardized by us. We are now experiencing enhanced Greenhouse effect widely thought to be the result of large quantities of heat trapping gases escaping into atmosphere. These gases as CARBON based, and include carbon dioxide (CO2), Methane (CH4), Nitrogen di oxide (NO2) and chloro fluoro carbon (CFC’S) caused by irresponsible human activities such as careless use of fossil fuel as result of increased trend in use of mechanical transport, smoke from factories and kilns, denuding landscape by indiscriminate burning and cutting of trees (Deforestation), disposable culture particularly of plastic goods etc. Pollutants in the air cause ozone layers, a natural defense against harmful ultraviolet rays, to thin out and crumble douse there by inviting an environmental disaster of frightening proportion particularly on the pales where ice caps are shrinking there by reducing the fraction of solar energy reflected back into space and so increases the temperature further.

Threats are too big and too numerous. We have presented our planet a disastrous gift of climate change, Deforestation, rising temperatures, shrinkage of polar ice caps, decimation of wildlife, population explosion, wars, mismanagement of water resources etc. are the issues to be reckoned with.

The danger is that global warming may become self-sustaining if it has not become so already. Climate change may kill forest and so eliminate one of the main always in which carbon dioxide is removed and oxygen is released through process of photosynthesis in the atmosphere. The rise in sea temperatures may trigger the release of large quantities of carbon dioxide causing to increase green-house effects and so exacerbate global warming.

Beginning of this century (21st), owing to un presented advances in the field of science and trichology, has seen earth transforming into a global village and as it would happen by the end of this century, under compulsion of survival, concepts on which the world has so far has been erect upon like nationalism, religion, cast, creed and ethnic classes etc. will be rendered redundant and the human race will unite into one race and class as “Citizen of Earth“. Till then, not to make this earth a violent palace to dwell. Be cautious – Be slow.

Do not cherish for rosy and romantic afterlife in havens camouflaged in pearly haze in superstitious, instead consternate in real life and make it worthy of living. Humanity must understand its abode and its dynamics. Truth, more often than not, needs to be forced through and so therefore:-  Cut down carbon emissions. Protect ozone layer. Reduce electrical consumption. Harness population explosion. Pump in oxygen. Through pollutants out.          Make walking a luxury. By doing so we will thus be:
