Our common Earth.
Did you know that our planet, Earth wasn’t always thought of as a planet? Until the sixteenth century when Copernicus figured out that the Earth was another planet, which revolved around the sun, Greek astronomers thought the Earth was the centre of the solar system. It all started with a BANG.
Earth is a captivating living planet. Around 7 billon humans live on it. 195 countries on. People are evenly distributed onto these countries. Earth provides us food, water, shelter and all the luxurious we need. Earth was once a Blue Ball but now it’s becoming “BLACK”.
When I was five years old my mom told me how Earth used to be. She said, “we had no vehicles, we had factories but less, we only had plants, trees and green grasses and homes without sound. The current situation of Earth is worse because we are having “GLOBAL WARMING” its because of the development of cars, factories and the smoke we produce.
Despite unavoidable free services provided by earth to humans we are not being able to pay off her kindness to us. We have always been harmful to Earth. Rather we humans are being cruel to our Earth by our selfish activities. Every day we produce tons of degradable & non-degradable wastes & throw them anywhere recklessly. Smoke & harmful gases from our homes, vehicles or industries are suffocating her. We are disposing dirty sewages, drainage & even chemicals recklessly although we know that more than 7 billion humans along with all plants & animals in this world rely on water for their lives. If we aren’t concentrated on saving those water resources, then in near future water can be as expensive as “PETROL” or one day people can die due to thirst, because of the population rise people need more oil ah most of the oil in the underground sea resources are all finishing up. By 2050 we people will not have oil. Knowing that there is huge noise by our enormous population itself, we still use loudspeakers for our entertainment and produce a lot of smoke by industries. Airplanes or other noisy vehicles for our luxury also have smoke produced every day. We destroy forests for agriculture ; settlement. “DEFRORESTION” is the word for destroying the forest. We are doing deforestation to build factories. Where will the poor animals live? We build huge buildings, roads ; factories beyond her carrying capacity. Establishment of nuclear reactors vastly affects environment ; human lives. Global warming is mainly caused by human activities. Also, most of the Arctic and Antarctic is melting down because of the Global Warming in the World.
Do we have solutions to save our Earth? Yes, we do. We can Save Earth with the help of our hands. We are the troublemakers, we are the peacemakers.
The cars, one of the most important problems. What can we do to these cars. We can destroy them but it’s a disadvantage for us to go outing free without a personal car. We can bring new cars without smoke. These types of cars are called ‘HYBIRD CARS” they are zero emission cars. Also, there can be a law saying that all vehicle owners should buy Zero Emission car in the coming future.
Managing forests and agriculture, tropical deforestation and emissions from agriculture represent nearly 30 percent of the world’s heat-trapping emissions. We can fight global warming by reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation and by making our food production practices more sustainable.
Reducing the use of nuclear, because the nuclear waste could damage the air and it produces a lot of smoke and if we reduce smoke Global warming is also reduced. Nuclear power results in few global warming emissions, an increased share of nuclear power in the energy mix could help reduce global warming.
Ensuring sustainable development, the countries of the world from the most to the least developed vary dramatically in their contributions to the problem of climate change and in their responsibilities and capacities to confront it. A successful global compact on climate change must include financial assistance from richer countries to poorer countries to help make the transition to low-carbon development pathways and to help adapt to the impacts of climate change. Like the city in UAE it’s the worlds sustainable city. Its because they use solar panels and the sustainability they have used.
All these solutions will help us to reduce the problem in the common earth. “We are the troublemakers, we are the peacemakers”
