Catastrophic Australian Wildfires Are Example Of Climate Change Effects

One of the wildfires raging in Australia measures 1.5 million acres, about the size of the state of Delaware.
   And that’s just one fire!
   The devastation consuming Australia is heartbreaking. All the wild animals who have perished is horrendous. Australia’s beloved koala bears may become significantly more endangered as a result of the number killed and habitat that has been lost.
   Human Caused Climate Change is a major culprit in the nightmare unfolding before us. Hotter, drier conditions in addition to high winds are making fire conditions much worse so that we are seeing wildfires which are more severe in terms of number, size, and severity.
   All of us need to work at combating Climate Change. Decrease our carbon footprint and elect officials who are pro-environment.
   It’s too late to prevent Climate Change.
   Now, we are trying to minimize the damage.

The Effects of Human Caused Climate Change Are Here!

Human Caused Climate Change is here!
It’s too late to prevent it.
It’s here!
What makes this even more tragic is that scientists have been warning everyone about this for decades. But most ignored it.
Well, it can’t be ignored any longer!
The effects of Climate Change are here now.
CO2 levels are rising. This, along with other gases, is creating the greenhouse effect which is warming our planet.
As a result, glaciers and the polar ice caps are melting, raising ocean levels. Mountain snowpacks are getting smaller in winter since more precipitation is falling as rain than before.
Weather patterns are changing so that some areas are seeing more intense storms while others are getting drier with more droughts. The latter is why we are seeing worsening wildfires.
For example, California and Australia were both prone to wildfires, but as they get hotter and drier, they are experiencing wildfires that are greater in number and intensity.
Water problems in areas that rely on melting snowpacks (like California and India) will worsen in the future as the snowpacks in the mountains get smaller. That means less water when they melt in the spring.
These are just some of the effects we are seeing.
Human Caused Climate Change is real and here!
It’s too late to prevent it.
Now, it’s up to all of us to work together in battling it to try to minimize the damage.
Each one of us must make changes in our daily lives to be more pro-environment. Examples include using public transportation, carpooling, driving vehicles with better fuel efficiency, recycling, decreasing use of plastic (take permanent reusable bags to the grocery store, and if you use plastic bags, take them back to the store for recycling (plastic bags can’t be put in curbside recycling in most places)), and educate yourself. Spread the word too. Put pressure on businesses and organizations to become more pro-environment.
In addition to these, vote!
Vote for elected officials who acknowledge Human Caused Climate Change and are taking action to fight it.
Vote out Climate Change deniers.
If we all take action, we can slow Climate Change down and minimize the damage.
But we must act now!
