Nature is changing its rules

climate change march 2

Tens of thousands of demonstrators gathered in Washington DC and across the globe last Saturday for the People’s Climate March which is to be the third annual large-scale climate change protest. Following last week’s March for Science, on this day which it was April 29th also marks President Trump’s 100th day in office. Since he became president, his administration has managed only several recent actions to weaken environmental protections on air and water, and to enable fossil fuel exploitation on public lands and waters. The march is intended to apply pressure to those in power so they might act seriously on climate change related with UN Paris Climate Change Agreement and start protecting the environment accordingly as agreed per se on this above mentioned accord. Many scientists and climate change advocates often mention that climate change is real and is deepening Horn of Africa’s hunger crisis due to recurring droughts. It is also affecting the immigrants, indigenous people, persons with disabilities, laborers, coastal dwellers, and children who will live to see the effects of such folly. On the other side, there is evidence showing that climate change has pushed the Arctic into a new state. It is that in the past 30 years, the minimum coverage of summer ice has fallen by half; its volume has fallen by three quarters. Right now, scientists point out that the Arctic Ocean will be largely ice-free in summer of 2040. The hard truth is that the Arctic Ocean as it is known today is almost certainly gone. It is serious matter that we need to start taking care of. We need to act seriously accordingly with the UN Paris Climate Change Agreement and scientists need to find a way of how to prevent causing even more further the cause in shrinking the ice in this fast manner. Actually, that state of the Arctic which at the moment is such that humans cannot simply undo climate change. They will only have to adapt to it.
