We all know that climate change is happening, but it seems like nobody is doing anything to resolve this menacing global problem.
Climate Change Problems
Humans have been burning coal and other products in the industrial age since 1760. The burning of these sources has made a dreadful influence to climate change and still is right now
HOW MUCH OF OUR ELECTRICITY IS GENERATED SUSTAINABLE?
In 2012 it was calculated that only 26% of energy generated, was sustainable while the other 73% was made unsustainably in factories by burning fossil fuels and other non-renewable sources.
Coal burning is one of the worst types of electrical production causing climate change, but still the most common around the world

Transport is also another major cause of pollution because the amount of carbon dioxide that gets distributed into the atmosphere.
These polluting modes of transport have been damaging our vital atmosphere since 1672 but hadn’t became a complication until the over population of humans.
More than a quarter of the emitted greenhouse gasses are form transportation!
81 billion ppm of carbon dioxide is created from vehicles a year. The carbon dioxide and other gasses that get released damage our ozone layer which creates less tolerance to the powerful sun rays causing climate change, this then can lead to global warming.
The over breeding of animals is creating disturbing changes or adjustments to climate change.
Live stock is responsible for over 14-18% of the green house gasses that causes climate change and global warming. Methane from the animals that are bred are causing this problem but the dairy and meat cattle are one of the worst.
One cow produces approximately 110kg of methane annually, in weight this is equivalent to 110 bags of flour a year.
All cows farmed a year make a whooping total of 61,600,000,000,000 billion ppm of methane.
Another significant factor contributing to climate change is deforestation. When we cut down and burn trees the stored carbon dioxide becomes free and moves into the atmosphere making it another component of climate change.
Scientist have shown that many ecosystems are destroyed every day because of this destruction but nobody seems to do anything about it. This unsustainable area of climate change is one of the worst because of the unbelievable amount of species that become extinct or critically endangered a day.
Similarly, by cutting down 5.5 billion hectares of trees per year, we are lessening the Earth's capacity to naturally remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Climate change is real and will always remain a very serious issue in our sociality but if we don’t start doing anything now to change our future, it will be too late. So how can we help?
