When discussing with people climate change, there are often discussions about, whether or not this is really happening. To answer this, there is this great tweet:
Wetlands are natural regulators of the quantity and quality of water. The common wetlands across the globe include flood plains, freshwater swamps, open coasts, swamp forests, lakes, and peatlands. According to Wu et al. (2018), wetlands are the most diverse and productive ecosystems on the earth; thus, sources of diverse biological communities of invertebrates, birds, and other vertebrates.
One of the most significant tests currently facing humanity is environmental degradation, including desertification, deforestation, climate change, and pollution. Environmental degradation is a serious concern since it contributes to resource scarcity and increases societies’ vulnerability to adverse climate changes. Consequently, it is a major factor fueling human-wildlife conflict and tensions in various communities. According to Choudhary et al. (2015), environmental degradation is the undesirable disturbance to the environment leading to the decline of environmental resources such as soil, air, and water, the ruining of ecosystems, and the extinction of wildlife.
Drought and desertification have a substantial environmental, social, and economic impact. The association between drought and desertification is vicious and presents significant ecological, social, and economic challenges across the globe. According to Borgen Project (2019), desertification affects every continent except Antarctica. United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) projects that 36 million square miles of land on the globe are currently affected by desertification.
Human operations cause an impact on the worldwide ecology, which can have severe ramifications for our future lives. Variations in the Earth’s atmosphere gas content, partly due to CO2 and other “GHG” emissions, may result in a spike in temperatures with significant geographical and spatial volatility, changes in global flow dynamics, and a substantial reorganization of climatic conditions. In this work, we examine these and other factors to relate glacier and permafrost melting, soil water loss, and flood risk. This research investigates all of the characteristics mentioned above and connects them using a common issue in each. We will be able to provide a comprehensive answer to these cross-cutting challenges in this manner.
4 weeks before COP26 in Glasgow. The belief that the world leaders will actually act has long vanished. But one thought comes up. Would it not be great if the climate crisis would be solved by an alliance of people, institutions and companies, that are willing to take actual steps toward a carbon-free economy and world?
Our planet is changing. We need to help it change for the better and we’re asking for your help to do that! There are a lot of things that affect our planet in a bad way but the good news is that everyone can help to reduce them and do their bit for the environment.
