Climate change can be defined as ”the change in climates as a result of human activities that disrupt the structure of the global atmosphere that surrounds our world in different time periods".The main causes of climate change are the fumes of factories, exhaust gases of vehicles, the reduction of forests, the reduction of agricultural land. Examples of climate change include the fact that the weather is hot in winter or the heat arrives late in summer. The effects of climate change include the Decimation of water resources, the reduction of food production, floods, storms, extreme heat and drought.
The Effects Of Climate Change The impact of climate change is not just a rise in temperatures. Droughts, floods, severe increase in the frequency and impact of extreme weather events such as hurricanes, ocean and sea water levels rise, the rise in the acidity of the oceans, melting glaciers as a result of factors such as plants, animals and ecosystems as well as human communities are also at serious risk.
Global Climate Change and Turkey A temperature increase of 2 ° C in the Mediterranean Basin will make its effects felt as unexpected weather events, heat waves, an increase in the number and impact of forest fires, drought and thus loss of biodiversity, a decrease in tourism revenues, loss of agricultural yields and, most importantly, drought.
The rapid change of daily life and the adaptation of people to it is one of the environmental problems. Even the little things like recycling, cycling instead of cars, or not using plastic straws are big things that will help fight nature's destruction.
Environmental problems are a warning of impending disaster. If these environmental problems are not controlled, soon there will be no life on earth. Reusable products should be preferred over materials that cannot be destroyed or require costly efforts. Thus, natural materials are offered to the service of life and brought back to nature. Unnecessary paper use should be avoided. Taking advantage of the digital age, paper should not be used unless it is necessary. Save water and electricity. Energy resources are not unlimited. Renewable energy opportunities should be preferred to meet the energy needs. To support environmentally friendly practices. Organized studies of public and private institutions to create social environmental awareness. To be sensitively prepared for the extinction of life species, which is an indispensable element of the natural balance. Taking precautions for endangered creatures. To impose and enforce strict rules on the hunting ban. To take measures for facilities such as nuclear power plants, etc., which have the potential to cause major environmental disasters.
We shared with our students on various social media tools by making a digital calendar to draw attention to environmental pollution and to gain different perspectives.
