Since the industrial era,  global warming has been on the rise. Now more than ever we have a duty to save our earth. Trump’s Administration released a 100 year statement about the future of our environment. Within these documents, it was found that the planet will warm by 7 degrees Fahrenheit by 2100. Although this increase does not seem like much, will likely cause major catastrophe throughout many aspects (Vice).

This rise in temperature will have detrimental effects (Washington Post). Such as, coral reefs dissolving, parts of Florida and Manhattan underwater, and extreme heat waves that would affect the globe.   To change our course, emissions will have to reduce by 45%  within the next 30 years (Time). However, where the major carbon cuts need to be made such as within large corporations and car emissions will be the most difficult to turn around. Although this is possible. With the United Nations report and plans within, our planet’s fate could change.

The Paris Climate Agreement made in 2015 was put in actions to get involved in lowering our fossil fuel emissions.  According to Trump’s Administration statement, the world would have to make drastic cuts in current carbon emissions.  Trump comments on global warming saying it’s a“hoax” and is more concerned with economic effects to dismantle large corporations (Washington Post).   

On October 8th, the United Nations released a “Special Report” on what it will take to avoid these detrimental temperature increases. The document released quotes on ways help lower the impact such as “low- or zero-emission power generation” and “changing food systems, such as diet changes away from land-intensive animal products”

Global warming is a challenge we will face forever due to our increased industrialism, but it does not mean we are helpless in our fight.  Small changes like eating less meat or turning the lights off when you leave can get you involved to save our planet. The fight is not over.
