What's next?

What will the future be like?

In terms of waste:

1.) The world's waste will be 70% more by 2050 than it is now.

2.) Global annual waste generation is expected to jump from 2.01 billion tons in 2016 to 3.4 billion tons over the next 30 years, as a result of the rapid expansion of cities and the growing population.

3.) By 2050, waste generation in Sub-Saharan Africa is expected to more than triple current levels, while South Asia will more than double its waste flow.

Impact of climate change on the environment:

1.)As climate change continues, the depletion of the ozone layer, loss of biodiversity, pressures on food-producing systems and the spread of infectious diseases globally will continue.

2.)As global warming continues, it will lead to higher death rates in the United States and many other countries.

3.) Because of climate change, people will migrate, and this will affect the cleanliness of water, and it will spread many diseases

Of course, there will be many positive impacts of climate change:

Climate change in Siberia, for example, is expected to improve food production and local economic activities, at least in the short to medium term.

And there will be melting in the southern and northern poles, thus new roads can be opened to connect the continents, and the oil that this region contains will be extracted, and perhaps the fossils in the land of that region will be discovered.

Perhaps there will be wars between countries to control their resources, and environmental problems will increase.

Do we consider climate change to be good or bad؟

With all these good changes, climate change has a negative, not a positive, effect, and its positive may only lead to negative aspects. Therefore, countries must invest in solutions to this crisis.

When I used to hear the word future, I used to imagine as in science fiction movies, but now, I am imagining reality ..

I got my information by reading many articles on BNC, thank you for your efforts ..

    This is a very interesting post, focused_river, well done! You have mentioned that countries must invest in solutions to this crisis, can you give some examples of possible actions they could take?

      Thank you for passing by ..
      As for the solutions that can be invested in to solve the crisis, there are many:
      Countries can plant trees, and refrain from raising livestock that are harmful to the green environment, and they can also invest in alternative energy for oil and coal, such as solar cells, fans that generate electricity and water turbines. Gas, and residents can ride on public transportation a lot instead of cars, because it pollutes the air less.
      Countries can invest in replacing the materials they manufacture that produce toxic gases that affect the ozone layer, and replacing them with organic ones, for example: replacing plastic bags with cardboard bags, and states must stop wars, because they are one of the most influencing factors on the atmosphere and the environment.

      thank you for reading ..
