Pernicious effects of climate change. Extreme weather conditions were observed in various parts of the world: in China, excessive heat waves were felt by residents while in Pakistan and Kabul, Afghanistan, flooding caused by continuous rans were seen as abnormal weather conditions never seen before or felt by the residents there. In California, Greece and France, fire incidents were registered necessitating the employ of several firemen to put out the fires which in some incidents lasted for several days. Helicopters bearing chemicals to put a stop to these fires were used.
The damage to the ozone layer can no longer be ignored. Indeed, the earth is heating up fast. In contrast, the ic.e sheets and glaciers were melting as fast, thus, the prevailing heat in otherwise colder situations.
Effects of climate change cannot be shrugged off and more weather abnormalities should be addressed soon by nations which resources should be pooled together to resolve climate dangerous effects; otherwise, it will be too late to stop disasters and calamities emanating from them. Nations should act fast and decisively before it’s too late.
