Recent climate changes are a cause of great concern for environmentalists. The eco-anxiety presiding worldwide has led to the invention of new technology resources and tools to combat the ongoing problems.
Nature and Technology: Going hand in hand
In April 2022, a report showcasing the recent scientific understandings and efforts for mitigation, was released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. According to the report, there was an urgent need for leveraging technology and nature to ward off the worst climatic changes, occurring globally.
The previous IPCC reports can be summarized as:
– Climate changes around the Earth are bad and are likely to get worse with every passing day.
– Human activities are worsening and causing climate changes.
– Extremities in weather conditions are likely to increase in both intensity and frequency.
– If emissions are not reduced instantly, our planet will be incapable of supporting life, also that of humans.
Unfortunately, neither the messages passed by world leaders nor the effects of Covid-19 have resulted in any significant action or shifts. We are all racing at high speed towards impending climate changes and climate collapse.
