Climate Change Threatens Your Health

Assalamualaikum and Good Morning to all my blog readers. Today i want to share about serious issue regarding Climate Change is expected to happen next 12 years from now. 
Even today, we already encounter the impact of climate change such as extreme events that occur all over the world. 

Climate change is expected to cause 250,000 additional deaths per year between 2030-2050.

How Climate Change Occur?

Climate scientists agree the main cause of the current global warming trend is human expansion of the "greenhouse effect"

Certain gases in the atmosphere block heat from escaping. Long-lived gases that remain semi-permanently in the atmosphere and do not respond physically or chemically to changes in temperature are described as "forcing" climate change.

Gases that contribute to the greenhouse effect include:

Water vapor. 

The most abundant greenhouse gas, but importantly, it acts as a feedback to the climate. Water vapor increases as the Earth's atmosphere warms, but so does the possibility of clouds and precipitation, making these some of the most important feedback mechanisms to the greenhouse effect.

Carbon dioxide (CO2). 

A minor but very important component of the atmosphere, carbon dioxide is released through natural processes such as respiration and volcano eruptions and through human activities such as deforestation, land use changes, and burning fossil fuels. Humans have increased atmospheric CO2 concentration by more than a third since the Industrial Revolution began. This is the most important long-lived "forcing" of climate change.


A hydrocarbon gas produced both through natural sources and human activities, including the decomposition of wastes in landfills, agriculture, and especially rice cultivation, as well as ruminant digestion and manure management associated with domestic livestock. On a molecule-for-molecule basis, methane is a far more active greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, but also one which is much less abundant in the atmosphere.

Nitrous oxide.

 A powerful greenhouse gas produced by soil cultivation practices, especially the use of commercial and organic fertilizers, fossil fuel combustion, nitric acid production, and biomass burning.

Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). 

Synthetic compounds entirely of industrial origin used in a number of applications, but now largely regulated in production and release to the atmosphere by international agreement for their ability to contribute to destruction of the ozone layer. They are also greenhouse gases.

So how can we reduce the climate change?

Maybe we can reduce usage of petrol and plant more trees. 

 Knowing about what to happen to our children next 10-20 years, make me feel insecure and terrified. But as Muslim, we know, end of the day, all of us must come back to our creator , Al-mighty Allah. So be prepared, we never escape from our fate that have be written before we're born.
