It is true that the climate is changing, which will produce several changes. We need international concentration and attention, and adopt measures for regional action. The struggle against it is a challenge we must all take and compromise in environmental education. Climate Change
Adaptation <ul><li>At present when the climate change affects us all we must be ready to face it. To do this, we must put into practice adaptation measures which will help us adjust to this phenomenon. </li></ul><ul><li>Some of them can be: </li></ul>1. Install dams where the glaciers melt. This is to stop the water, and not let it advance
2. In many places there are natural disasters, as a consequence of the climate change, and the people who live there are affected by earthquakes, losing their homes and other things, they may have to move to another place, until they find a solution for the problem. Floods Tsunamis Hurricanes
3. As man has removed sand from the coast for building purposes the sea is advancing rapidly so, we could build a stone wall to stop it. This technique is used on many shores. 4 . Governants should make people aware of these measures to adapt to global changes. 5 . There must be intelligent governants, with technologies and plans that help us to stop the climate change. That's how I like it
Mitigation But there are other ways to act against climate change, for example the mitigation measures , which involve people to change some aspects of their daily lives and where factories have to be more careful with their waste, to reach a reduction in emissions of greenhouse gases. Everyone can help in this activity, for example, doing the following: Too much smoke!
1. Using less electricity or using low-energy lamps. Turning off the air conditioning when it isn’t in use, or putting it in 24ºC or more. 2. Using in the factories or in the houses renewable energies, such as the solar, geothermic, biomass, hydroelectric and eolic, liberates less Greenhouse gases than the non renewable energies.
3 . RECYCLE papers, plastic bags and many more objects. If we do this, the production of these products will be reduced, so the production of the Greenhouse gases will diminish, too. 4. Also i n agriculture, there are several emissions of Greenhouse gases. This problem could decrease by changing the work habits and recycling some products. 5. Travelling by bike, on foot, by bus or sharing cars, decrease the vehicles, and the Greenhouse gases’ emissions, for example, carbon dioxide.
