According to the Climate Change Convention (Official Gazette Extraordinary 4825 of December 27, 1994, Art. 1), climate change is understood as a climate change attributed directly or indirectly to human activity that alters the composition of the global atmosphere. It also adds to the natural variability of the climate observed during comparable periods of time.
According to studies of several scientists, it is envisioned that the global climate of the planet will be significantly altered as a consequence of the increase in greenhouse gas concentrations such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxides, and chlorofluorocarbons; causing an increase in the planetary temperature.
Food production also leads to the burning of fossil fuels, because the land must be cleared for agriculture, often through the process of deforestation and the use of fertilizer for crops. The felling and burning of forests also emit carbon that goes into the atmosphere contributing to global warming.
Climate change or global warming affects all animals and plants that cannot adapt to a changing climate. Bringing as a consequence the extinction of many spices that will lose their proper habitat, others will be forced to migrate long distances in search of a place to live. The sedentary nature of the plants makes them vulnerable to climate change.
Steps To counter Global Warming:
It is everyone’s responsibility to be aware of the implications of global warming for life on the planet, so we have a duty to help take care of the environment and prudently use natural resources.
- When a day is scorching, wear loose clothing like cotton yoga shorts instead of turning on the air conditioning. It helps reduce energy consumption in the home. Keep appliances that are not in use turned off and only light the bulb where you are.
- Reduce, reuse, and recycle—huge amounts of waste end up in landfills every day. The biodegradable waste is decomposed in methane, producing pollution. If there is a recycling program in the community, join them, and recycle the plastic, glass, and paper products to be reused. If you have old clothes like leggings or yoga Capris, do not throw them away—give them to charity for others to use.
- Use water rationally; municipal water systems require a large amount of energy to purify and distribute water to homes. If you have water leaking from the faucet, send them to be repaired, every drop of wasted water exacerbates climate change. Gather your leggings in the same container to wash them and thus contribute to saving water.
- Participate in fundraising and awareness events that promote greener lifestyles. Initiate campaigns to recycle, take care of green areas, and plant new trees. Educate in environmental awareness, so that new generations respect and care for the environment and adults reflect and modify certain attitudes and habits that affect the environment.
- In the house, work, community, or school, concrete activities can be initiated to improve the environment, observe in the surroundings and identify less harmful alternatives to the environment and make decisions based on the improvement of the quality of life. The Capri leggings will always be a garment suited to the warm days allowing you to feel fresh without using the air conditioning.
