Biodiversity Day: 2021
World Biodiversity Day 2021
An extremely severe cyclonic storm, Taukate that was formed in the tropical region of the Arabian Sea on 14th May 2021.
Research “provides strong evidence” that human-caused global warming has had “a considerable impact on global tropical cyclones”.
Research has shown that climate change likely boosted the likelihood of many single cyclone events, including Hurricane Harvey, which made landfall in Texas in 2017, and Hurricane Katrina, which struck New Orleans and its surrounding regions in 2005. ( http://carbonbrief.org/)
Greenhouse gases are warming the upper atmosphere and the ocean which is leading to various tensions in the atmosphere.
The primary greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere include carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide.
Further, this brings us to the concern that the main component that produces those greenhouse gases are our vehicles.
Yes, mobile transportation helps us reach places in just a few minutes. But if this keeps on continuing then are we going to have any places left for us to visit?
Give that a thought for a moment.
By now, you might be wondering about what can be done to prevent it? It’s a larger-scale problem. How can a few make a difference? But the thing is, the solution is already out there - we simply need to take the corrective measures and adapt to them.
So there are many options that we can incorporate in order to save the environment. One of them is by making a simple move of switching to electric mobility over the Internal Combustion Engine vehicles.
Conventional vehicles emit approx. 50% of the carbon emission in the atmosphere. For which electric mobility is not just an option that we need to choose, but is the need of the hour.
The rapid adoption of electric mobility will only help to cut down the emissions caused by greenhouse gasses.
Hence, this environment day let us go by the theme of ecosystem restoration and pledge on to make sure that we restore it.
