The definition of climate change is “a change in global or regional climate patterns, in particular a change apparent from the mid to late 20th century onwards and attributed largely to the increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels.” (Google Dictionary). Due to our dependence on fossil fuels as our main source for energy and our carbon dioxide emissions over decades, climate change has rapidly emerged on Earth. Yet, we still have those who deny any scientific evidence of the effect of the dependence on fossil fuels. Climate change is a threat one should not ignore but want to reverse with the transition from fossil fuels to clean energy.
An issue, which one should consider frightening today and for the future, is climate change. The growth of climate change has developed over decades due to human activity, and we have done substantially little to nothing when it comes to moving forward with clean energy as a nation. When we continue to use fossil fuels as our source to power our electricity, it exhausts and pollutes the planet’s natural resources, as well as environments and species. What happens when we pollute and waste all of our natural resources? The result is climate change, and in that, we all suffer from the destruction fossil fuel energy has on our planet and on humanity. When our human activity results in greenhouse gases that perpetuates the slightest rise in temperature that then cause ice caps to melt at an alarming
