Today, climate change is an indisputable but not inescapable process, a phenomenon that has now overcome any possible skepticism. For many years, the scientific world has been trying to raise public awareness of climate change, showing with data and studies that the climate is changing.
WHAT IS IT
Long-term changes in weather patterns and temperatures. In particular, this natural process that has been occurring on Earth for millions of years, due to variations in the solar cycle, has been accelerated by human activities in the last 2 centuries.
WHEN IT STARTED
NASA has detected a sharp increase in the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere since 1950, rising to over 400 parts per million in just over half a century.
Deforestation for agricultural and zootechnical activities, with the reduction of the forest’s ability to remove CO2 from the atmosphere;
Production of electricity and heat through the combustion of coal, natural gas and oil;
Production of goods through the use of non-renewable sources, both consumer products and raw materials and semi-finished products.
Strong reduction of glaciers leading to sea level rise and the release into the atmosphere of large quantities of climate-altering gases enclosed in perennial ice.
Among the consequences of climate change there is also the increase in violent meteorological phenomena.
Disasters caused by climate change are also attributable to prolonged droughts and reinforce processes such as desertification and dust storms.
According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), from the analysis of the scientific evidence produced to date it is likely that the damages of climate change are considerable and will increase over time.
WHAT PEOPLE CAN DO
Avoid food waste to preserve food resources and reduce carbon emissions caused by the agricultural sector and food industry;
Prefer circular solutions oriented towards the recycling, reuse and repair of consumer goods;
Choose a supply from renewable and sustainable energy to meet your energy needs.
We are very attentive to sustainability and climate change. We care about our planet and for this we cultivate the earth to feed the children of the orphanage in a sustainable way and respecting the environment
