CLIMATE CHANGE

 

Climate change in simple terms is defined as a change in the average climate condition of our planet.

The issue of climate change has attracted national and international concerns and as well become a matter of political concerns being addressed across board. There are various debates ongoing internationally regarding this issue and how to adopt appropriate solutions to halt it. The main issue being debated on includes the causes, solutions, effects and post effects of climate change and the adequate preparation necessary to deal with it.

 

To properly address climate change, the issue off global warming can not be over looked.

 

WHAT IS GLOBAL WARMING

Global warming is the term used to describe the lower atmosphere of our planet becoming very warm as a result of the increase in certain quantities of gasses capable of trap heat being release into the atmosphere due to the actions and activities of mankind since the era of industrial revolution. These gases are classified as the green house gases.

 

WHAT ARE GREEN HOUSE GASES (GHGs)

 

Green house gases are the kind of gases released into the atmosphere due to the activities of humankind which are capable of trapping more heat and in turn warms our atmosphere. These gases include the following: 

 

CARBON DIOXIDE (CO2) this is less of all the hazardous gases produced. They are produce into the atmosphere by the use of fossil fuel in generating energy and the cut down and burning of forest and other domestic human activities.

 

METHANE (CH4) this is mainly produced due to the activities of mankind in agricultural activities such as Livestock production and poultry farming and the changes in land uses.

 

NITROUS OXIDE (N20) this is a very high atmosphere pollutant which is also released into the atmosphere through the production of animal factory farming. They can also be emitted in the change in land usage and through other sources. There are other long-lived gasses such as

SULPHER HEXAFLUORIDE (SF6) that are emitted by human industrial activities. All these gases are what is referred to as green house gases and are emitted by domestic activities in our houses and industrial revolution.

 

 

WHAT SHOULD BE OUR FOCUS

 

The main green house gases and their warming effects:

Green house gas

Warming effect

Carbon Dioxide

1

Methane

72 times more potent than CO2

Nitrous Oxide

296 times more potent than CO2

 

Since methane is 72 times more potent than CO2 in its global warming potential, and nitrous oxide is 296 times more potent than CO2 in its global warming potency, it makes sense to focus on these two greenhouse gases (Methane and Nitrous Oxide) first, due to the urgency of the situation. Moreover, the majority of CO2 is the byproduct of economic development, so cutting back on CO2 takes too long for this crisis and can be costly.

Climate Change would have a catastrophic effects on our planet, if adequate measure are not put in place.

GREEN REMEDIES TO HELP PRESERVE OUR ENVIRONMENT  

Pals of the Earth uses every little resource within our reach to propagate and educate people across board as much as possible to help curb, and if possible avert the unforeseen dangers of the climate change and global warming confronting humankind and aid in reducing emissions from deforestation and degradation (REDD) of the environment.

1. SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLE

One paramount way you can help preserve our environment is by turn to a more sustainable Lifestyle in which the production of ingredients that constitute your needs does not have a heavy environmental price. And the most environmentally friendly system is green lifestyle. By adopting to this alternate way of living do not only help to preserve the environment and the animals but you also derive the ultimate benefits of avoid several diseases caused carbon emissions.


2. THE SWITCH TO GREEN TECHNOLOGY (ECO-FRIENDLY TECHNOLOGY)



3. THE SWITCH TO SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES (ECO-VILLAGE AND SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE PRACTICES)




4 PRAYER AND MEDITATION TO ELEVATE THE COLLECTIVE WORLD CONSCIOUSNESS

This universe fundamentally operates on the principle of higher consciousness. It is therefore of a great importance for humankind to comes to the realization of this TRUTH that this universe is controlled by the state of collective consciousness of the people living in a particular environment. When the conscious thought wave length is directed in the negative polarity, its rippling effects generates wars, hatred, disasters, famine, drought, environmental unease etc. But if there is a positive balance in the collective conscious thought wave length of the people in an environment, its effect is a total peace and harmony as desired inwardly by all living creatures.

In view of this fundamental truth, it is then imperative on everyone in any community around the world to pray and meditate for Divine assistance in elevating the collective consciousness of our world to a reasonably positive balance so as to manifest a more peaceful and harmonious world for our children and children's children. Thank you.
