All the people want a very nice house, with the garden, with living room, a place where we can feel comfortable. That comfort helps us to feel good and that other people who visit our house also feel comfortable.
It would be illogical to think that the owner of the house could carry out acts that are deteriorating in his home.
However, that is exactly what happens with humanity and it’s home, the planet earth. We are destroying that environment in which we live everyday. The earth is a perfect habitat, it regenerates, it nourishes itself. It’s a natural process.
This process is hampered and one of this consequences is global warming. At the same time, it generates other phenomena such as climate change, floods, among others.
What is this process really about?
Global Warming, as it’s name implies, is the progessive increase in global temperature. The atmosphere and the seas experience an unusual increase in their temperatures, causing several negative consequences to the ecosystems. The science, on the one hand, has shown that our planet has gone through normal processes of heating and cooling througout of thousands or millions of years.
However, now, the accelerated pace of human life, in all aspects, is causing changes in the composition of the earth in less than a century. Activities such as deforestation and excssive production of gases that cause greenhouse effects, amoung other, have contributed to global warming.
And now the most important task. How can you help reduce the effects of global warming?
The answer is simple: Saving energy. In this way, natural resources are better preserved. Do not waste, for example, electricity, water. A small task, but it generates great benefits.
Above all, the difficult thing is to create a sense of responsability in people.
