"Happy earth day," we see, scrolling down our feed. We all know about Earth: we live on it. It's the 3rd planet from the sun and likely the only one to harbour life.. but do we REALLY know what is happening on our earth? Do we know the damage we have done? Climate change IS real, and it's time to face it. Soon, we may not even have earth day. The civilization is ending, slowly but surely, as we know it.
I have been taught about climate change, and global warming at a young age. Like many others, I was taught to "reduce, reuse, and recycle." Of course, I was aware that global warming, lack of recycling, pollution, etc. were big issues that needed to be fixed. Somewhere, deep down, we all know it. As a kid, I didn't give it much thought. It was as simple as "the sky is blue." This is how normalized pollution has become. It is, just now, occurring how large of a problem it really is.
However, the damage done to earth is rapidly increasing, and something must be done. Some significant signs: a. Melting of ice and sea levels rising b. Air pollution in larger cities and areas with factories, many cars, etc.
It has been scientifically predicted that we have until 2030 to make a difference - or there will be irreversible chain reactions that will most likely lead to the collapse of civilization. On top of this, permafrost is melting, which can release stored bacteria from tens to even hundreds of years ago. This can lead to outbreaks, which will further contribute to the end of civilization.
Although many acknowledge this, and repost posts that spread awareness, that is sadly not enough. Actions speak louder than words. We CAN make a DIFFERENCE. Even the little things matter. For Example: a. Using re-usable containers, cups, bags, etc. b. Taking showers instead of baths c. The classic: Re-use, Reduce, Recycle -Refraining from buying bottled water and especially bottled water in packs
It may seem far away, but it affects you more than you think. Together, we can make Earth Day a time of happiness.
