CLIMATE CHANGE

In keeping with my efforts to monitor the influences climate change is having on our lives, a look at its’ impact globally, shows manifestations in various countries and the lessons that we can learn in an effort to rein in some of these destructive practices. If we are to prevent sea-level rise and reduce the destruction to our environment, we need to take proactive measures now, based on the evidence we have before us.

One example, as exemplified in this recent report, shows that climate change was responsible for Hurricane Maria’s devastation in Puerto Rico. The warm air currents produced by global warming are producing more severe storms as years progress.

Another example exists in Antartica, which is fast becoming a travel destination for nature lovers and explorers.

  2. I agree with your comment. Perhaps we can be activists to that end. This is a major election year and it’s up to us to choose the issues and the candidates we want in office. Thanks for stopping by.
