International Day Against Climate Change: why it is commemorated on October 24

Oceans warmed, ice and snow decreased. It is estimated that the rise in mean sea level will be between 24 and 30 cm for 2065 and up to 63 cm for 2100.

Each October 24th, by means of the celebration implemented by the UN as International Day Against Climate Change, power is sought make aware to people about their Actions individuals, those of large companies and governments and the way in which they impact the environment in a negative way.

The Earth previously heated and cooled at other times naturally, but the truth is, these cycles had always been much slower and several years, while now and as a result of human activities.

And although there is evidence and studies that support this question, there are still some who prefer to say that they do not believe in this event, as if it were a myth or legend of the modern world.

The seriousness of this problem is that climate changes are reflected in heat waves, droughts, strong storms and rising sea levels, respiratory diseases along with food insecurity and the increasingly desperate lack of water reserves. sweet.

With more than a century and a half of industrialization, massive agriculture, misuse of non-renewable energy and deforestation, the amounts of greenhouse gases (GHG) in the atmosphere increased to levels never seen before.

The GHG in the Earth’s atmosphere is directly related to the Earth’s temperature and its index. Experts point out that around 2/3 of all types of gases, the highest is carbon dioxide (CO2), the result of burning fossil fuels. The emissions of this gas are absorbed by the oceans, causing acidification, influencing the seas and other ecosystems that depend on them.

These changes have an abrupt and direct influence on agricultural productivity, and therefore on imports and exports and on the population’s diet, due to the fact that it manifests itself in droughts, floods, pests and diseases.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report in October 2018 warning that we must reach the 1.5 ° C temperature rise from pre-industrial levels, or at least not exceed it. , if we want to avoid an environmental catastrophe

For this reason, it is essential that the countries dialogue with each other and take urgent measures that are imparted by the different governments of each region. to stop the situation as soon as possible and generate awareness.
