Climate Change and COVID-19
There is much to talk about climate change. Days ago, a winter storm in our country had brought deadly weather conditions to Texas. This freezing storm has reached large parts of the central and southern United States, where millions of people experienced an intermittent power outage.
Scientists argue that there is more to freezing rains in Texas than ice-glazed highways and freezing temperatures. They had already explained that roasting heat and unusual winter storms are both effects of climate change caused by global warming. We are living in a pandemic, but these climate change problems seem to be much worse.
What is the solution?
There are several ways to support green practices, but start taking little steps can make a big difference. Here are some steps to make our lives greener. -
- Reducing energy consumption can reduce carbon emissions. Many companies have been taking steps to become carbon neutral.
- Green energy must be accessible for those non-developed countries.
- Reduce, reuse, and recycle.
- Do not just throw your old electronic devices into the trash.
- Support the sustainable usage of natural resources and raw materials.
- Plant trees, grow flowers, and have indoor plants to keep the air clean.
- Save water, gas and electricity.
Remember, protecting the environment is our responsibility! The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) helps companies and people to understand the impact of environmental issues and provide tools and recommendations for environmental practices.
