How to stop climate change?

Climate change poses a fundamental threat to the places, species and people’s livelihoods. A large part of the changes in the climate are caused by human activities and if immediate actions are not taken, it may severely affect the ecosystem as a whole. Given below are the measures that can be taken to prevent the change in climate:

  1. Avoid deforestation and plant more and more trees so the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere can be reduced 
  2. Avoid using vehicles that emit greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and opt for public transport, bicycles or walk, if possible
  3. Becoming more energy efficient by turning off lights if not required, unplug devices that you are not using anymore, replace your light bulbs with energy-efficient light bulbs, etc. 
  4. Do not overuse the natural resources
  5. Reuse, reduce and recycle is the best way to preserve the environment at an individual level. Recycling is a cost-effective and eco-friendly process that eliminates waste and doesn’t emit greenhouse gasses into the environment
