The Fight Against Climate Change: 3 Actions to Take
Are you an eco-warrior? In the 2020s we should all be interested in fighting against climate change. The COVID Pandemic has revealed to us all just how fragile life is and how fragile our planet is. Many people believe that the pandemic is a way of our planet taking a break.
But what ways can you undertake in your personal life to fight against climate change?
Here’s everything you need to know about how to fight against climate change.
- Restrict Your Flying
This is easy in the time of Coronavirus were flying to most countries that have been restricted or stopped altogether. There’s no need for you to fly anywhere for the next year. If you decide that you need to travel somewhere after the Corona Virus has finished then be sure to consider other alternatives to flying.
Trains and cars can often be a much more efficient way of getting around. Traveling with Europe can all be done by train or by bus, and it’s a lot more comfortable. Instead of flying between Britain and France, you can instead take the Eurostar direct from London St Pancras International.
Within the U.S if you can drive or take Amtack instead be sure to use those options available to you. If you are going on a long-distance journey, for example, from New York to Los Angeles, then make sure you make an adventure out of it. Do lots of stops off in different cities.
Flying causes CO2 emissions because of the sheer volume of fuel it burns. During the lockdown, there has been a huge reduction in CO2. It’s important to reduce this if you want to save the environment.
- Eat Less Meat
Eating less meat is also another way to save the planet. Producing meat burns a lot of CO2 gas. It’s high energy production.
Farmers can now use environmentally safe pest control products to ensure that animals are kept under control rather than having to farm them.
Depopulating the planet of animals is also not good for its natural balance as humans take over and breathe in more and more of the air and take over more and more of the natural spaces.
You don’t have to become a vegan to affect change – though many people choose this lifestyle – you can also reduce the amount of meat you eat. Only eating meat on a few days a week instead of every day can help contribute to fighting against climate change.
- Engage Politically
Many politicians have come up with solutions to tackle climate change. The Democratic Party floated the idea of a Green New Deal in America while Conservative politicians are incentivizing people to use bicycles rather than cars or motorbikes.
You can also read the literature of people like Greta Thunberg who has inspired a generation of young people to take to the streets.
Want to Fight Against Climate Change? Engage and Change
If you want to fight against climate change, then the best way is to engage politically. Find out what other people are doing, join the marches and protests, and speak to your local representative.
But you also need to change your behavior. If you want to join the global fight against climate change, then eat less meat and curtail those flying habits of yours.
