Climate Change is no longer a theory

Updated on July 14, 2019

The tipping point

We have reached the tipping point of Climate Change. Now it can no longer be dismissed as just small insignificant changes in the climate. World records are being broken on a monthly basis. Every year, the heat and temperatures cross the limits set by the previous one. The temperatures have already risen to a point where it's becoming unbearable for many, specially in the developing third world countries.

While the disastrous impact of heat waves is being felt the most in places like South Asia, even Europe and North America have started to feel the heat. The temperatures this year across the European continent broke many limits and have made countries like France start recognising this as an emergency. There seems to be a consensus at this point that something has to be done, or else we will all suffer in the future.

The worst impacts

The UN has warned that one climate disaster is taking place every week. Here are the various ways that Climate Change is leading to disaster. The most horrifying thing is that unless something is done, these will get much worse.

1. Heat waves. Thousands have died in heat waves in Europe and South Asia. Diseases have spread that have mostly impacted children and women.

2. Drought. Cities in South Asia are running out of water. This is expected to get worse as Monsoons are getting drier year by year. The future wars over water predicted by several analysts might become reality sooner then we thought.

3. Floods, Tsunamis and rise in sea levels. Melting of ice caps is leading to unexpected floods and rise in sea waters that could drown entire cities. The capital of Indonesia, Jakarta is at risk in it's entirety. The country has also seen a sharp rise in climate disasters recently.


The countries that are least impacted have no reason to feel that they will be unaffected. The climate disasters will lead to endless refugees flooding (pun intended) their countries. The amount of refugees from climate change will be much much larger than from war, as the people won't have any other choice in this case.

''The amount of refugees from climate change will be much much larger than from war, as the people won't have any other choice in this case.''

Time to ignore the deniers

It's no longer time to continue the debates, the time has come for action. Rapid, undisputed action. Everyone has to contribute. Everything has to contribute. Whether it is reforestation, using greener energy sources or creating electric transportation.

It can no longer be pretended that this is still a debate. Not when people are dying and records are being broken. Not when the temperature anomalies rising is a fact shown by all recorded data. The time for talk is over.

Do your part!

What can you do?

1. Call out, and expose anyone who denies the climate change. Don't give them a seat at the table anymore.

2. Raise awareness regarding the ways we can limit the impact of climate change. Let everyone know what they can do. Knowledge is power.

3. Limit your own carbon footprint. Only use your car as much as required. Try to use solar power and other green energy sources whenever you can. Contribute to more environment-friendly solutions.

4. Finally, we can all plant a few trees! Simple yet very useful.


Let's hope we can all make a change and limit the impact of global warming. Our future generations deserve better.

      Tiffany & Angel,

      The government knows far more about it than the general public will ever be allowed to know.

      They know about the very real activities that are beyond our control. Cataclysmic Pole Shifts are real and occur regularly on the planet:

      Solar Winds & Flares:

      https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/sun-spo...

      Even a Volcano eruption can have more impact on our climate than all of man's activities combined:

      https://scied.ucar.edu/shortcontent/mount-tambora-...

      I don't know what to attribute this belief that we can control the climate by our actions to, ignorance, arrogance, propaganda programming... but we humans have as much control/impact on climate as ants or termites do.

      Now... if you want to talk about POLLUTION and how we are poisoning our water supplies, and polluting the oceans (and all the food that comes out of it) with plastics to levels that are becoming toxic and irreversible, then yes we can blame humanity for that destruction.

      I believe we should cut back on Carbon Emissions and Pollution, but the issues with Climate Change are beyond our control, we have no more ability to change what is going to happen than we can stop the Earth from rotating around the Sun.

      We are seeing the changes daily, not sure why our government is not seeing it

      I agree, climate change is no longer a theory, its fact.

      We have 100,000s of years proof of it, from cores of ice drilled from Antarctica and the Arctic. Climate change is real, and has been far worse than what we are seeing now.

      What is debatable fully is what part humans are having, and if its a significant impact, and can we do anything about it, scientific data makes it seem unlikely..

      And scientists have known this for decades... makes you wonder what all the talk about carbon footprint taxation is really all about.

      The whole premise of your article that Climate change is no longer a theory is absurd and not factual. It is still a theory, as is the Big Bang Theory.

      "What can you do?

      1. Call out, and expose anyone who denies the climate change. Don't give them a seat at the table anymore.

      B:

      Ridiculous, emotional, childish and absurd.

      --------------------------------

      2. Raise awareness regarding the ways we can limit the impact of climate change. Let everyone know what they can do. Knowledge is power.

      B:

      And what is that knowledge?

      What does it mean to say "limit" the impact of climate change.

      The Climate has always changed, and we don't even have to ability to predict the weather much less change it.

      ----------------------------------

      3. Limit your own carbon footprint. Only use your car as much as required. Try to use solar power and other green energy sources whenever you can. Contribute to more environment-friendly solutions.

      B:

      Solar power, only works when the Sun is out. Solar panels have a finite period before the fail, and with defects they can fail at anytime. Then you have the problem of how do you dispose of them.

      Limit your own carbon footprint, the US government all with the state, and local government are the biggest producers of carbon in the world. If you want change, it has to start there.

      -----------------------------------

      4. Finally, we can all plant a few trees! Simple yet very useful.

      B:

      We need water for trees, and the arid Western US doesn't have much of it.

      ----------------------------------

      It appears that all you know is to cry wolf, you don't have a clue as to what to do about the wolf.
