Is Climate Change a Cause or Effect?
Over the past decade, the intensity of Climate Change has been spiraling. There can be no debate about this.
Each year, we are informed, is the hottest year, until the following year happens. And this is true.
So, what are we doing about this? Nothing meaningful.
We are all so distracted: from Covid-19 to our economic crisis; from our state elections to kumbh melas; that Climate Change is simply nowhere on our agenda.
As Qualitists, let us craft a Problem Statement: Survival of all creation on Planet Earth is at stake! Climate Change will destroy the Planet in 5 years.
Next, what are the symptomatic evidence of Climate Change? The EFFECT:
- Forest fires (in Australia and West USA)
- Frequency and intensity of storms (in India, Europe, East USA)
- Severe cold waves (in East Europe and Russia)
- Blistering heat waves (in Canada and Europe).
What are the CAUSES for these symptoms? Here are a few theories:
- Air pollution
- Soil pollution
- Water pollution
- Garbage and landfills
- Plastic forever
- Electronic waste
Who is responsible for all this pollution and waste?
