When we are speaking about climate crisis, for a moment, let's think of our dear Earth as a child who is a little too warm. Close by there are doctors and they are arguing. They concur that the child is getting warmer, but not as to the cause, rather they focus solely if her temperature is increasing faster or slower. One says the hospitals air conditioner will make the hospital cooler anyway, so there is no need to do anything. Most agree on a particular cause, yet not everyone. Either way, the child keeps getting warmer. One doctor says that because the child is getting hotter less quickly, that she is "cooling". On the other hand, another doctor points out that she is still getting warmer and if she gets much warmer it could be lethal. And like that they argue as to the cause of the warmth. But still, the child just keeps getting warmer. The parents are alarmed, "Give us the best ways to bring her temperature down!"
In this day and age, I don't think there’s any greater challenge facing our mother Earth than this climate crisis. And the penmanship on the walls is that in order to avoid its worst effects, we need to do everything we can to achieve the goal of, 'Net-Zero Carbon Emissions By 2050.'
While this increasingly popular goal might sound ambitious and sensible, young activists, including Greta Thunberg, have titled it as, “Giving up”.
Day by day, we are slowly pressing the crucial moments of our international efforts to tackle the climate crisis, wich is quite the great challange in our time. While the number of countries that have pledged to reach zero net emissions continues to grow, but so does the global greenhouse gas emissions. This gap between rhetoric and action must be closed to reach net zero by 2050 and gain a fighting opportunity to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 ° C.
Now dear readers, what do you think about this goal? Is it something practical, or are we just reaching out to the stars too far from our reach. Please leave your thoughts in the comment section down below.
