14 Oct What we see in 2030 if Climate Action success?
Climate Action is a movement of the United Nations in the Sustainable development Goals program. This program aims to make the world aware of the dangers and more concerned about climate change.
Climate Change since when?
Since the late 19th century, humans have begun to realize that the use and release of carbon dioxide waste into the air causes climate change. This is evidenced by the melting of polar ice caps and other climate changes; the earth is getting hotter so the greenhouse effect is unavoidable.
In general, climate change is a significant change in the distribution of weather over a period of thousands to millions of years. Climate change is influenced by natural and human-made factors. Natural factors that influence include natural disasters, the process of circulation in the middle of the sea, shifting plates, plants and animals. Man-made factors are the use or release of excessive carbon emissions. We as citizens of the earth must be aware and understand the dangers of this climate change. Because if it continues, the earth will get hotter and cause unwanted natural changes.
What should we do in Climate Action?
By the 1970s, scientists had started making researches about climate change. And starting in the 1990s, climate action was increasingly echoed. Research on climate change has also begun to be carried out. Due to the increasing prevalence and awareness of people about climate change.
It is important to reduce the use of tools and activities that can cause excessive carbon emissions to be released. Substituting environmentally friendly fuels and resources is a crucial factor in reducing the release of excessive carbon emissions. In addition to being environmentally friendly, using fuel and natural resources from the natural environment is also cheap. This can be an alternative to cut the cost of using fossil fuels or fuels that are not environmentally friendly.
Some facts about Climate Change reported from the United Nations
- -In 2018 more than 170 related parties ratified the Paris Agreement to address climate change that is happening on earth.
- -In 2018 several developing countries have succeeded in carrying out policies regarding climate change that occur on earth.
- -Developing countries continue to improve and cooperate with related parties to mitigate risks and actions in climate change.
- -More than a hundred years ago the earth’s temperature rose to 0.85 degrees Celsius. As a result of the warming of the earth’s temperature has an impact on crop yields and other food needs decreased in intensity and quality.
- -As a result of the rising Earth’s temperature, the polar ice caps are melting and causing sea levels to rise. Even some coastal areas are slowly sinking by the rising of sea levels.
- -With the current state of the earth, the release of carbon emissions that occur will affect changes in temperature in the next hundred years. Even higher than the previous hundred years. Even if the release of carbon emissions is stopped, climate change will still occur in the next few centuries.
- -It is estimated that with the current climate change, sea level will rise by about 24 cm to 60 cm in the next 80 years.
- -Since the 1990s the release of carbon emissions into the air has increased dramatically by 50 percent from the 1900s.
- -It is proven that between 2000 and 2010 the release of carbon emissions increased dramatically compared to the previous decades.
- -There are still some and many ways to reduce the impact of carbon emission releases that have occurred so far.
- -Development, change, and improvement of existing technology will suppress climate change which is getting worse.
- Things that must be done by the government and relevant parties so that climate action can be successfully implemented by 2030
- -Strengthen and increase national awareness and mitigation of risks in various countries related to climate change.
- -Incorporating policies on climate change into national strategies and plans in various countries.
- -Improving the quality of education, vigilance, and human resources for the benefit of disaster mitigation in climate change.
- -Implementing the Green Climate Fund from various parties which has become a commitment of developed countries for Climate Change from the United Nations Framework Convention by jointly mobilizing around $100 billion per year.
- -Continue to promote and implement the importance of policies from Climate Action in various countries, especially in developing countries. Including focusing on empowering women, young people, and marginalized communities.
