Consequences Of Climate Change Are Inescapable

Climate change poses a fundamental threat to the environment, species and peoples wellbeing and livelihoods. In order to adequately address this retrogression, we must urgently reduce carbon emission and prepare for the consequences of global warming which is adequately being experienced in the current era.Climate crisis is greatly caused by human-generated emissions that continue to rise across all sectors from energy to agriculture and even transportation. Earth’s average global temperature has already warmed by 1.1 degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels, and there is already critical evidence behind emerging disasters, changing weather patterns and struggling ecosystems.

However, there is still some hope left because climate action works and evidence can be clearly seen in the elimination of several gigatons of emissions per year, this is according to a report released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a body of scientists convened by the United Nations Organization. Deliberate transformation in almost all facets of our economies is necessary and while that may sound intimidating, the longer we take to implement it the tougher it will appear. Transitioning the energy sector to clean, renewable systems is often cheaper than sustaining the existing carbon intensive systems especially considering the kind of damage they exhibit on the planet that will cost even a lifetime to recover from.

Transforming our feeding mechanisms is also very critical in that unstable agricultural system is a primary driver of deforestation which destroys wildlife habitats, increases harmful gas emissions, erodes income for the locals and increases risks to humanity. Practicing sustainable agriculture benefits both food security and biodiversity scaling up the environment. Building synergies with the right stakeholders is an influential call to action that can bring onboard political leaders, industries and businesses on whom cutting emissions depends deeply on. There is a need to cut emissions and enact a clear transition to a clean, renewable economy. The existing climate solutions are key hence should be well resourced to bring about change. The states at the core ought to take accountability for their massive contribution to climate crisis and be at the forefront for this transformation.

Climate change and biodiversity loss impact greatly on humanity in remote, direct and indirect ways. We are all a living case study of the changes we witness on our dailies and this will help individuals navigate these changes sustainably with a clear mindset. Investing in nature pays dividends! Addressing climate change and biodiversity loss is impossible without forests. Therefore, increasing recognition in addressing climate change and potential partnerships across sectors that could aid in curbing these issues around health with investments in forests and natural infrastructure is very important.
