World Earth Day 2024: 10 unique things to know about climate change

World Earth Day, celebrated around the world on April 22 each year, is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the modern environmental movement and raise awareness of the need to protect the Earth and its resources. Earth Day 2024 has the motto “Earth vs. Plastic” to draw attention to the environmental pollution caused by the increased use of plastics.
To commemorate this day, here are 10 unique things to know about climate change.

  1. Rising Temperature
    The Earth’s temperature is rising every year. The US-based National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reports that 2023 is the warmest year on record, and temperatures are likely to rise gradually in the coming years.
  2. Deliquescent Glaciers
    As global warming progresses, glaciers in the Arctic and Antarctic are beginning to melt. This could cause sea levels to rise and increase coastal erosion.
  3. Greenhouse Effect
    The increase in greenhouse gases has a significant impact on the Earth’s climate. Emissions of carbon and other greenhouse gases trap heat at the earth’s surface, causing global warming.
  4. Seasonal Changes
    As the Earth’s temperature increases, the timing of seasons, weather conditions, and temperatures will be greatly affected. Summers have become hotter and winters have become less cold. Rainfall patterns and monsoon timing are perturbed by current climate conditions.
  5. Hunger and Thirst
    Changing and extreme weather conditions affect the availability and quality of food. The availability of potable water is decreasing due to human activities and climate change. If this state continues for a long time, starvation and dehydration will become severe, and large numbers of people may disappear from the earth.
  6. Depletion of the Ozone Layer
    Due to the increased use of CFC-emitting devices, the ozone layer is thinning. Although 3 billion tons of ozone may seem like a lot, it only makes up 0.00006% of the atmosphere. Depletion of the ozone layer increases the amount of ultraviolet radiation reaching the earth’s surface, which can weaken human immunity and cause other health problems.
  7. Irreparable Damage
    Urgent action must be taken to improve severe weather conditions around the world, according to a report by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It is said that climate change could become irreversible by 2030.
  8. The Cry of Extinction
    Current climate conditions are causing species extinction rates to be at an all-time high. More than 1 million species are at risk of extinction. The current extinction rate is 1,000 times higher than the natural extinction rate.
  9. Nature’s Revenge
    For everything we do to satisfy our greed, nature rewards us in the form of natural disasters. Human-induced climate change is causing wildfires, droughts, floods, and more. To recover from this damage before it becomes permanent, we must care for and protect nature.
  10. Positive aspects
    Every negative aspect has a positive side. This also applies to the current climate change. Create space for agriculture in the ice-covered regions of the Arctic and Antarctic. It also prevents the possibility of another ice age. A longer growing season could increase crop production in some regions.
