The world is changing and not due to social media, laws, trends, and all, but because of climate change. Climate change is altering this world in ways never done before and these changes are affecting our lives on a massive scale.
Climate is Changing
Stating the obvious first, climate change will affect our lives simply by switching up things. More specifically, climate change is turning our normal weathers to devastating climates.
For example, in the case of tropical countries, summer is becoming a lot more harmful than enjoyable. The heat is turning up and what was once bearable is now becoming really damaging. On the other hand, for countries with cold weather as their norm, things are getting a lot chillier.
The changing weather is just a start to things because in a short while you’ll see that what were normal before are now turning into more devastating things.
From your usual vacation spots to the animals you are seeing in the zoo the world, the landscape of the world is simply changing due to climate change. Climate change is affecting the environment in ways that it has never been altered yet.
A good example of this is the current situation of the Great Barrier Reef. If you happen to miss this one, just be aware that parts of this beautiful patch in the world are just dying due to the changing chemical composition of the world.
As mentioned, climate change is turning normal hazards into full-scale calamities. What was once a normal typhoon can now be amplified to turn into a devastating one due to climate change? Another example is a drought being amplified to create more hazards such as forest fires.
Calamities are perhaps one of the most dangerous effects of climate change since the mortality it can take is just higher than any of the previously mentioned reasons. Aside from amplified calamities, the duration between disasters in also decreasing like a storm appearing every 20 years appearing every 10 years now.
If you think that climate change has nothing to do with the disease outbreaks in the world today, then you may have to read up on more things. Wind patterns are changing now and some diseases are starting to visit other places.
Furthermore, viruses are a lot faster than humans in terms of development and while we are all busy worrying about the weather, these viruses have now evolved to be immune to these conditions.
However, one of the most striking facts that I’ve learned in terms of climate change and diseases is the one relating to prehistoric diseases. Apparently, due to the melting ice caps, the bacteria and viruses preserved in ice caps and permafrost are starting to come alive again.
These four things are just some of the biggest effects of climate change on our lives. There are many more things to worry about in this topic and if you do not want these things to happen to you anytime soon then be sure to do your part.
