In this article the Green Anchor Blog addresses a topic that has been the mouth of the world lately. Climate change is the biggest environmental threat of the 21st century and we have all felt its consequences and impact on our daily lives.
No matter how hard we accept, climate change is real, and even in Portugal, we can already see its effects. Cold waves followed by intense heat waves exceeding 40ºC, devastating fires and uncontrolled floods.
Mitigating these situations is not an easy task, but there are a few things we can do to help the planet in this process. Know which ones in the infographic below.
If the planet continues to heat up, we may see some changes, such as:
Sea level will rise as water expands with increasing temperatures and oceans absorb more heat than land.
The same will happen due to the melting of glaciers and floes (sea ice).
Some coastal cities may be flooded.
Some areas with heavy rain and snowfall may become warmer and drier.
The beds of some rivers and lakes may dry up.
The number of droughts could increase, harming the crops.
Potable water supplies for consumption, hygiene, agriculture and food production may decrease.
Many animal and plant species may become extinct.
Certain extreme weather phenomena such as hurricanes, tornadoes and other storms caused by changes in temperature and water evaporation mechanism may become more frequent.
In the above infographic you can see how we can prevent climate change, help to avoid its consequences and have a constructive effect on the future of our planet.
In small gestures it makes all the difference, if each of us is aware and can follow these small suggestions, it is much easier and possible to help our planet, he thanks! 🙂
