We all serve our purpose on this planet; we are what make it maintain order. But over recent studies we can see that global warming is happening all around us. We are not doing our part to stop this from escalating even further. I feel if everyone can change their habits and focus on what is best for our environment we can ultimately change our future. The burning of fossil fuels is one of the main contributors to global warming. When fossil fuels are burned they emit CO2 which gets trapped by our atmosphere causing the air to become heated, known as the Greenhouse Effect. It will take an 80% reduction in Carbon emissions by 2050 to avert the most dangerous, irreversible and costly effects of climate change. We are already experiencing higher and lower temperatures, major storms, out of control fires, and Artic melting. There are many ways we can prevent global warming, that not only are good for our environment but help save money. We could recycle, preserve energy and water, use the backside of paper, use a cloth bag while shopping, don’t buy cars that use a lot of gas, or even get a hybrid car. If everyone would just open their eyes to the dangerous truth then we can take our first step to putting an end to this. If we all work together, I know we can change our fate before it is too late.
