“Pertanyaannya bukan lagi apakah pemanasan global benar-benar terjadi, tetapi apakah dalam menghadapi situasi darurat ini, kita dapat cepat menyesuaikan diri” Kofi Annan 2006.
Climate Change, nowadays, really tickles many people’s mind deeply. They, who take different role in society structure, have their own idea about what actually climate change is. They showed their concentration on it and promoted how to reduce climate change. But on the other side, there are still people who criticize it. Is climate change really happening?
Yes. Climate change is real and happening now!
Well actually, climate is always changing through time and space. Started from the first time that earth was formed, the climate has been conditioning to the balance and suitable atmosphere for living.
The problem right now is that it is changing more rapidly than before and most of them, this era, were indicated as the effect of human activities. This rapid and big scale changing will affect all aspect of living creature on the earth. Earth’s temperature will continuously increase if we don’t take any action to prevent it by now.
Since around 1800’s, earth’s mean temperature had been increased 0.74 C. It is predicted that the temperature will increase around 1.80 C to 4 C on the 2011’s. During last 30 years, earth’s mean temperature had been temperature 0.06 C. 2006 is recorded as the hottest year of all.
As a student, we also have a role to take, which couldn’t replace by anyone. But not many students considered with this special role. So tell us, do u care with climate change? What can you do to fulfill the role?
