Climate change

Newspost

 
March 18, 2019

The first strike for climate change by school students across the world held on March 15, 2019. I think this is a positive step taken by teenagers to make our elders and leaders realise that they are playing with the future of new generations. Carbon emission due to the burning of fossils is the main cause of climate change and no country has taken any action against it. Why are government officials not putting a ban on the use of fossils, despite knowing that they can easily adopt alternative ways to generate energy?

Why are governments not regulating tree cutting, despite knowing that it poses a serious threat to environment? Why are they not taking action against inadequate disposal of waste, despite knowing that improper management of waste is also a cause of global warming? At the current pace of carbon emission, scientists expect an increase of 1.5-5.3 degree C or 34.7-41.5 degree F in the average temperature of the globe by 2100, if no action is taken. We strongly demand proper and mutual action by government officials against this increasing threat.
