Global warming is becoming more and more serious every year, and it manages to seriously affect the climate. If we take a look back at 2017 we can see that it was a year that had numerous natural disasters and the weather has been extreme. In fact, there were incredibly high temperatures even in the Arctic.
It is hard to deny the reality of global warming if we take a look at the hurricanes in the Atlantic, the numerous wildfires, the heatwaves that appeared in many countries, the typhoons and the droughts. Back in 2014 the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) revealed that global warming is evolving at alarming speeds, and things have only gotten worse since then.
Last year also had CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere at incredible high level, and scientists reveal that it is the highest level in 800,000 years. While many are still not very convinced about global warming, it slowly becomes impossible to ignore its results. Therefore, we have to find a solution before it is too late.
Saving the environment
It is difficult to control natural forces, but there are certain solutions. However, one of the first steps is awareness. People need to learn about global warming and its effects, as well as all the threats that it poses.
We need to realize that we destroy thousands of other species, and we manage to destroy ecosystems for financial benefits. However, all these things are destroying our planet, and corporations and industries won’t be able to save us.
However, many people still choose to ignore the obvious threat. For those living in calm safe cities, it is hard to believe that melting of ice will affect their lifes However, that is something that we all must learn before it is too late.
Shawn and his wife live remotely in a 880-square-foot cabin along with their three dogs. They implemented many of the things they learned from the internet and trial and error. They have been helped by so many contributors over the years and desire to now return the favor to other Canadian Homsteading readers. They heat with a woodstove and cut firewood by hand from their 11 acres. They went back to the land and are essentially do-it-yourself people.
