Climate change refers to long-term
shifts in temperatures and weather
patterns.
Global Carbon Emissions Volcanic Activities
Deforestation Solar Irradiance
Agriculture
Tectonic Shift
Global energy-related CO2 emissions
grew by 1.1% in 2023, increasing
410 million tonnes (Mt) to reach
a new record high of 37.4 billion
tonnes (Gt). This compares with an
increase of 490 Mt in 2022
(1.3%). Emissions from coal
accounted for more than 65% of
the increase in 2023.
Volcanic eruptions can cause climate
change primarily through the release of
gases and particles into the atmosphere.
When volcanoes erupt, they emit large
amounts of carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide,
ash, and other aerosols. These gases
can contribute to the greenhouse effect,
trapping heat in the atmosphere and
leading to warming.
Total tropical primary forest loss
in 2023 totaled 3.7 million hectares.
All this forest loss produced 2.4
gigatonnes (Gt) of carbon dioxide
emissions in 2023, equivalent to
almost half of the annual fossil
fuel emissions of the United States.
Solar irradiance, or the amount of
solar energy reaching Earth's
surface, plays a significant role in
climate change. Variations in solar
activity can influence climate
patterns over long periods,
The advent of modern, industrialized
agriculture has significantly altered the vital but
delicate relationship between soil and the climate—so
much so that agriculture accounted for 11
percent of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in
2020.
When tectonic plates move, they
can alter the distribution of
continents and oceans, which in
turn affects ocean currents and
atmospheric circulation patterns.
Changes in ocean currents can
impact the distribution of heat
around the globe, leading to
changes in regional climates.
Additionally, tectonic activity such
as volcanic eruptions can release
large amounts of gases and
particles into the atmosphere, which
can temporarily cool the climate by
blocking sunlight.
Rising temperatures
and sea level
Loss of biodiversity
Health impacts Ocean acidification
Melting ice caps and
glaciers
Disruption of
agriculture and food
supply
Refrain from using plastic shopping
bags.
Conserve Energy
Use of eco-friendly household products. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle
Eat Mindfully Planting plants around the house
Avoid single-use plastics whenever possible. and
use reusable bags, containers, and water
bottles.
Turn off lights and appliances when not in use,
use energy-efficient bulbs, and consider renewable
energy sources.
Opt for products made from sustainable
materials and support companies with eco-friendly
practices.
Minimize waste by reusing items, recycling
materials, and avoiding single-use plastics.
Reduce meat consumption, choose local and
organic foods, and avoid food waste.
Trees absorb carbon dioxide and provide oxygen.
Consider planting native trees in your area.
Reforestation
Afforestation
Reforestation involves converting previously forested land
back to forest. It’s part of the ecological
restoration of wild forests and is also used
for more managed lands (e.g., paper production
or timber).
Afforestation is the establishment of trees
on land that has lacked forest cover for
a long time or has never been forested.
There are many things you could do to reduce your carbon footprint.
Some of them are:
