What should we do to deal with climate change? The increase in the consumption of fossil fuels by humans, especially after the industrial revolution, has caused an increase in greenhouse gas emissions and ultimately climate change, global warming, shifting of seasons and aggravation of drought in the world.

What should we do to deal with climate change?

This situation has not only caused the destruction of the environment, but has also made life more difficult for humans, while it is possible to reduce the effects of climate change by adopting solutions.

World Climate Change Day

The United Nations celebrates October 24 every year as the International Day to Combat Climate Change. Climate change is a phenomenon caused by an increase in the temperature of the earth or global warming. Global warming itself is a phenomenon that has arisen following the industrialization of countries and due to the increase in the concentration of greenhouse gases, especially carbon dioxide gas in the atmosphere.

Perhaps in today’s world, global warming and the resulting climate change phenomenon can be better understood from the conditions it has created for our environment.

These days, humanity has tasted the bitter taste of climate change more than ever due to torrential rains, numerous droughts and widespread forest fires, sudden cold or heat, and a decrease in snowfall.

What does climate change indicate?

Climate change refers to abnormal changes in the climate in the earth’s atmosphere and its consequences in different parts of the globe, which will affect all people’s lives if we do not find a way to adapt to it.

This phenomenon occurs as a result of factors such as dynamic processes of the earth or external factors such as changes in the intensity of sunlight or human activities.

External factors affecting the climate are often called climate forces and include processes such as fluctuations in the intensity of sunlight, deviations in the path of the earth’s movement, and an increase in the concentration of greenhouse gases.

According to many scientists, global warming caused by climate change is one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century. This phenomenon has very destructive effects in the whole world, especially for economically developing countries and countries located in the mid-latitude of the world and the dry belt; In such a way that it is considered a threat to the vital water resources and food security and will result in extreme phenomena such as floods and droughts, which will cause local, regional and international conflicts as well as extensive ecological migrations.

The start of the  climate change discussion

The discussion of climate change is an issue that started in the last few decades and has reached its peak today. During the past few decades, only scientists and specialists felt the consequences of climate change and related issues, but now the consequences of climate change have affected wide sections of different societies and caused the attention of many people to be drawn to the issue of climate change.

Climate change and its effects

Pointing out that the change in the shape of rainfall and the decrease of snowfall, the occurrence of extreme rainfall and the emptying of a large number of villages due to drought, dust storms, etc., are signs of climate change, Samadi says: these days, we are even facing the change of seasons, which is a warning for the earth and its inhabitants. According to the conducted researches, climate change, in addition to all its harmful effects, can affect many diseases and their epidemics.

The director of the research group on climate change and weather disasters of the Climatology Center of the Meteorological Organization and an expert on climate change and weather disasters adds: For example, the prevalence of some diseases are affected by weather conditions, and they increase or decrease with the change of seasons, and sometimes they even disappear.

Therefore, when the seasons go out of their natural rhythm, they also affect diseases and epidemics. Even some diseases and pests in the natural areas of the country are also affected by abnormal changes in weather conditions.

While stating that sometimes widespread fires in forests are also affected by climate change, he states: for example, more than normal rainfall causes an abnormal increase in the level of vegetation cover, and this cover becomes dry and becomes a mass of fire bombs when the air warms up, which leads to an increase in forest fire damages.

Drought is an integral part of climate change

Drought is a well-known natural hazard and an integral part of climate change. The occurrence of drought affects different parts of human life.

Changes in temperature and precipitation patterns have a great impact on the quantity and quality of water resources, especially in dry areas. In recent years, the occurrence of numerous droughts in many areas is considered a serious threat to water resources.

Climate change and global fluctuations

Samadi goes on to state that climate change has caused long-term fluctuations on the planet and affects its various parts, and clarifies: The climate change issue is a complex and multi-dimensional one, and human and non-human factors are involved in its occurrence, but despite this, the effects of human destructive activities on climate change are more evident.

The increase in the use of fossil fuels on the planet and the subsequent increase in the production of greenhouse gases are one of the most important reasons for changes in the parameters of the planet, including temperature, followed by changes in the climate.

Humans and climate change are the scourge of the earth

According to this expert on climate change and climate disasters, human activities and climate change have caused the ice to melt in the poles, the sea level to rise and the balance on the planet to be lost, and when the parameters and different parts of the planet are out of balance, we will face numerous droughts in one part of the earth and external disasters in another part.

We encounter normal and severe storms that affect human life.

Climate change has become the bane of human life, and at the same time, humans are intensifying this phenomenon with activities such as the use of fossil fuels or the production of greenhouse gases.

head of the climate change group of the National Air Center of the Environmental Protection Organization – stating that experts believe that 95% of the main cause of climate change is caused by human activities such as the increase in the use of fossil fuels and the increase in carbon dioxide gas, some greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide are scattered in space through the combustion of hydrocarbon fuels and the activities of human society, and others such as the gases of fluorine compounds are produced exclusively by human activities.

Methane is one of the other gases that affects the temperature of the environment and is considered as a greenhouse gas. Methane is released during the production process of coal, oil and gas. It is also released from sources such as animal excrement and agricultural waste, and it is also dispersed in the space with decaying organic waste. Among other greenhouse gases, we can mention “nitrogen oxide” that is released from the activities of the transportation, agricultural and industrial sectors.

According to him, today’s societies have suffered from everyday life and are busy like a car from morning to night, unaware that they disturb the balance of nature with some unprincipled and selfish activities.

Changes in temperature patterns, rising sea levels, destruction of coastal areas, loss of agricultural and food products, destruction of forests, reduction of fresh water resources, regional climate changes in high latitudes and the Northern Hemisphere, changes in the amount of rain and wind direction, increase in natural disasters such as tornadoes and floods, intensification of drought and development of desert areas, increase in air pollution in some areas due to the increase of hot winds and the possible effect on the spread of diseases such as malaria are some of the known consequences of climate change. .

Greenhouse gases are a problem for climate change

The Director of the Research Group on Climate Change and Atmospheric Disasters of the Climatology Center of the Meteorological Organization states: Unfortunately, currently, some countries do not look at the issue of climate change as a global problem and they have not gone under the burden of reducing the use of fossil fuels followed by reducing the production of greenhouse gases, and this is a problem for controlling climate change on the planet.

According to the head of the climate change group of the National Air Center of the Environmental Protection Organization, following the increase in greenhouse gas emissions and changes in the global climate system that have led to an increase in the average global temperature in the 21st century by 0.6 degrees Celsius, the governments adopted the framework of the United Nations Climate Change Convention in 1992 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in order to stabilize the concentration of greenhouse gases at a level that would prevent the dangerous interference of human activities with the climate system.

In 1997, at the third meeting of the United Nations Climate Change Convention in Kyoto, Japan, an additional protocol to the convention was drawn up under the title “Kyoto Protocol” regarding the commitments of industrialized countries, according to which the industrialized countries that are members of Annex 1 of the Convention committed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by five percent below the emission level in 1990 in the period between 2008 and 2012.

Due to the fact that the emission of greenhouse gases was still increasing in the world and the financial mechanisms foreseen in the Kyoto Protocol were not responsive to the current conditions and the world was still facing the problem of rising temperatures and the consequences of climate change, so in 2015 the Paris Agreement was formed for the future strategies of the issue of climate change, which our country has not yet joined this agreement.

Consequences of climate change in the world

Climate change is one of the most important problems of our country, which will cause noticeable changes in water resources, the amount of demand for energy, agricultural production and coastal areas, which Azizi says about this issue: based on the research and evaluations carried out in the project “Empowering Climate Change” under the United Nations Climate Change Convention and using the scenarios proposed by the “Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change” (IPCC), if the concentration of carbon dioxide doubles by the year 2100, the average temperature of countries will increase. .

What should we do to deal with climate change?

Climate Change and Atmospheric Disasters Emphasizing that if we don’t do anything to manage and control climate change, human societies in different parts of the planet will face serious danger, he says: different countries of the world, especially those who are among the main producers of greenhouse gases, should unite and adopt comprehensive policies to reduce greenhouse gas production and return to natural conditions – which will take a lot of time.

Educating people to behave correctly, logically and compassionately with nature has an important role in preventing the dangers caused by climate change. People can take steps to cope with or adapt to climate conditions through measures such as saving water and energy, using renewable energy, buying food products with minimal packaging, reducing water consumption in irrigation and agriculture, reducing the volume of waste through optimal consumption and recycling, etc.

Although the discussion of global warming and climate change during the last decade has attracted the attention of a number of experts and university professors in the country, and sometimes they provide reports about the global importance of this issue, but the scope of the effect of this phenomenon on other atmospheric phenomena has not yet been explained, and global warming has hidden and unknown dimensions for us. Fewer changes Yemi has affected the whole world. Humans are greatly affected by this phenomenon, while they themselves have become a factor for its aggravation. Therefore, it is necessary for the authorities and people to prevent the spread of this phenomenon as much as possible, because the planet and the climate belong not only to the current generation but also to future generations.
