Times are changing… and so are the temperatures. Although people may deny that this is true, science says otherwise. The sea level has risen 8 inches since 1880 says Nasa. This shocking statistic brings into light a scary idea. Will some of our most beloved cities become... submerged? It is believed that by the end of the century there will be mass amounts of flooding in 670 coastal communities such as St. Petersburg, Florida and Miami, Florida. A study shows that climate change could make South Asia uninhabitable within our life times, according to Futurism. Where would the people that live there go? What would happen to the wildlife there, the nature? These are questions that we will soon be hit in the face with if we don't start acting now. That is, if it's not already too late.
The first thing that we can do is to limit or stop our use of fossil fuels. Many scientist believe that it is too late for us to reverse the effects of climate change and global warming, however we can still be aware of our own personal carbon footprints and cut down on our bad habits. Believe it or not, there are apps for this and they prove to be very helpful in keeping people mindful of the way they are personally changing the world around them. One of these apps is called Oroeco. It all starts with becoming mindful about our actions. What can you do to help slow the process?
