Hello everyone, I read a post of one of my colleagues here in this project, and he was talking about the role of professions in the confrontation, and one of these professions was the profession of the cleaner, and its publication opened my mind and I sat thinking about the large and wide field of work of the cleaner, but I saw that there was indeed a great shortcoming It is clear in the field of cleaners work in the last times, there are other duties on the cleaners that he needs to abide by and that if he does them correctly, we will get rid of a large part of the issue of climate change and we will benefit much more than it is now and in this post I want to alert you to some The chores that cleaners fail to do and are already making the issue of climate change worse
The most important of these factors is their main task, which is to collect and empty the trash. The cleaners take out this waste and empty it into the landfill, and this is considered a disaster because this landfill has serious damage:
1 The gases emitted from landfills mainly include methane and carbon dioxide, and these gases are considered greenhouse gases whose rise plays a role in global warming and raising the temperature of the planet in the long run.
2 This place where waste is dumped produces very unpleasant odors and spreads in the long run, so this landfill prevents us from exploiting all the areas near it or using it for anything, whether for building for the population or benefiting from it
3 According to the World Health Organization, these landfills can pollute drinking water if they are not built in appropriate ways, and therefore if drinking water is contaminated, it will infect humans with diseases and viruses
I will suggest some ways to dispose of the landfill:
Incineration: Waste is burned in special ovens at a temperature of 900 to 2000 degrees Celsius, with the need to continue burning without stopping. We benefit from this method in generating electricity and central heating by exploiting the thermal energy resulting from combustion in heating water pipes used in central heating networks, as well as In the production of water vapor that can be exploited to generate electricity, but this method is ineffective for some solid waste, but here we can use recycling such as paper and food waste through industrial processes to be reused as raw materials for the manufacture of new products.
The second point in the duties of the cleaners is their duty to help people give up plastic: The statistics on people's consumption of plastic are horrific, as people around the world buy one million plastic water bottles per minute and use up to five trillion single-use plastic bags every General, but the problem here is that these bags are not biodegradable and cannot be recycled, so they often end up polluting the ocean, and this is a truly catastrophic problem.
My opinion on this issue:
Indeed, the cleaners have a role in the issue of climate change, even with their shortcomings. Their work and their removal of waste and planting trees is beneficial to protect against pollution and increase the beauty of the environment. That we can open an institution around these problems among cleaners, and thus the number of workers will increase, unemployment will decrease, and we will get a great benefit to reduce the phenomenon of climate change
Finally, I want you to answer this question: what other jobs could be alerted about something to help defeat climate change?
