The term climate change we often see in the news by our politicians, social worker and scientists to represent a modern day crisis of average global temperature rise with respect to pre-industrial era, reports of IPCC projects the average temperature may rise by 2ยฐ C by the year 2100 and rise in the average sea level of 3 cm. Apart from sea level and temperature rise we observe several other effects as well such as extreme weather events, frequent flood, droughts, cyclone ๐ŸŒช, crop failure, forest fire ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿ”ฅ and many more. One must think the possible reason behind the climate change, and unfortunately the reason are us, The humans, most intelligent species of the planet ๐ŸŒ, excessive use of fossil fuel, and rapid industrialization produces green house gas (gases which traps the heat within the atmosphere e.g. CO2, CH4, SF6 etc). Seeing the climate change as a possible threat, Internationally several summit took place such as Earth summit at Rio, Brazil 1992 which laid the road map to counter the climate change with an initiative like Sustainable Development, 1997 kyoto protocol and recent Paris summit 2015. Now the question is are these initiative enough to address the global challenge, main draw back for these international agendas are no legal backing to enforce the decision taken in the summit. Now it’s upto each and every individual to understand the severity of the problem and address the problem in more scientific and logical way, reduce the dependency on the fossil fuel and look for more renewable and clean energy sources such as wind and solar energy. Planting trees ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒด which acts as a carbon sink, one of the quote I have seen few day back has a wonderful message that says “Humans are the only creature on the planet which cuts the tree make paper from it and write on that paper SAVE TREE”. Instead of holding a placard and blame game we need people to people Participation work for the betterment of the planet and environment, Earth ๐ŸŒŽ is our home ๐Ÿ  but we aren’t the Only one who resides here. In the end I would say if we claim to be smartest on the earth time to prove it, “work together, live together”.ย
