When looking back on the past decade, 2011-2020 has been the warmest one on record so far. According to the World Meteorological Organization, the last 5 years have been significantly warmer, which for 2020 translated in more than 80% of the global ocean’s marine ecosystems experiencing the repercussions of climate change.
Even though we are witnessing the damages and acknowledging the impact on future generations, it looks like one of the biggest fuelers to global warming, the atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases, continues to rise. It only takes one look in the year 2020 to learn how this escalation can have such devastating effects on climate change.
On a bigger scale, the authorities are doing their part to maintain the environmental balance that influences all ecosystems of Planet Earth. So what are the governments doing about climate change?
Between 1970 and 2019, weather, water, and climate-related hazards have been the main subjects of 79% of worldwide disasters according to the World Meteorological Organization’s report 2020 State of Climate Services. As these problems, caused by climate change, have been on the rise, the world’s leaders have searched for solutions to alleviate the Earth’s ecosystems.
Worldwide, governments developed their plans on climate change, and we have selected a few parties that have taken on the action:
●Government of Canada on carbon pricing, clean electricity, transportation, buildings, innovations, and the Pan-Canadian Framework;
●The federal efforts of the United States to accelerate carbon capture deployments, implementing the next generation of nuclear energy, infrastructure, scientific and technology research, community resilience and more;
●The European Union is close to meeting some of its key objectives of The European Green Deal due to the positive actions taken by local governments.
As reported to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, risk information and early warning systems (EWS) are the top priorities for most UN parties. How can these methods help countries get on track with the needs of ecosystems, economies, and human lives? Worldwide leaders agree that awareness of these issues empowers individuals and communities threatened by hazards to act and help prevent and lower the impact of climate change.
We are moving into a future that allows the citizens of Earth and their communities a way to fight back against climate change and embrace Mother Nature’s call to bring back a balanced ecosystem!
