Extreme Weather Featured Image 4

Hi this Amirable_cheetah here I would like you to know how to keep your self and your family safe and not get hurt from climate change or any thing like that.

So what you can do if you live in a hot country,

  • Do not go out near forest
  • If you smell smoke you need to star evacuating (tell people!!)
  • Don't panic or get scared

So if you live in a county that has lot of water

  • You should live on a high ground.
  • If there is a flood get on to high ground

If there is a Earthquakes

  • get under something like table
  • help others

I have some questions for you

Should you help others?

Do you put others in frount of you?

If you are some were you don't know what do you do?

thanks you all for what I have to says if you have any questions please ask them by the comments and I get back to you at quick as I can.

    Thank you for these ideas, admirable_cheetah. I think it's important we encourage people to follow advice from experts and the government in their own countries, especially when it comes to extreme weather.

    ) Let's change our eating habits!
    To limit the impact of our diet on the climate, we prefer seasonal fruits and vegetables as much as possible. In fact, they generate an average of 7 times less GHG than products grown under heated greenhouses. Many seasonal fruit and vegetable calendars are available to guide us in our purchases.

    2) Let's reduce our consumption of meat!
    Contrary to popular belief, proteins are not only found in meat or animal products. They are found, in particular, in high quantities in certain plants such as pulses, seeds or nuts. Let's be curious and experience a vegetarian recipe at least once
    per week.

    3) Let's fight against deforestation!
    Certain labels guarantee sustainable forest management. By purchasing products (paper, furniture, etc.) bearing the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or European Program of Certified Forests (PEFC) label, we can contribute to the preservation of forests and thus limit anthropogenic GHG emissions.

    4) Preserve the oceans!
    To fight climate change, we must preserve the oceans. For this, each of us can act on a daily basis. For example, we can buy environmentally friendly household products to avoid spilling polluting chemicals into the oceans.

    5) Let's use clean energy!
    To reduce our daily impact on the climate, we can choose clean energy from renewable resources. More and more energy suppliers are encouraging their development: let's encourage them as soon as possible to reduce our daily GHG emissions.

    6) Let's reduce our energy consumption!
    An energy label classifies products according to their energy consumption. This classification is symbolized by a letter. The most energy efficient and therefore the most respectful on the planet are classified A +, A ++ and even A +++! For example, an A ++ rated device consumes 45% less energy than an A rated device.

    7) Sort our waste!
    The best waste is the one we don't produce! For this, many solutions exist: questioning the need for our purchases, favoring products in bulk or without overpacking, preferring eco-refills, etc.

    😎 Let's move on to the circular economy!
    We can modify our consumption patterns on our own scale to combat global warming. By relying on the principle of the 3 Rs: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle we can considerably reduce our quantities of waste and avoid unnecessarily producing new objects. Furniture, textiles or household appliances, all our daily consumer products can be repaired or find a new life thanks to recycling.

    9) Let's use soft modes of transport!
    Favoring public transport, electric vehicles or carpooling are effective solutions to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions when we travel. The best solutions obviously remain cycling and walking, which are both ecological, economical and good for your health. Moreover, an ADEME survey reveals that half of the car journeys are less than 3 km, a perfectly calibrated distance for cycling and walking.

    10) Let's offset our carbon emissions!
    Since 2006, the GoodPlanet Foundation's Action Carbone Solidaire program has had the mission of fighting global warming by developing sustainable and economically viable alternatives to polluting activities, for the benefit of the most disadvantaged populations. By supporting these voluntary carbon offset projects, we can all contribute to the fight against climate change

      A great range of solutions and adaptations here. What might be some barriers to these things happening?

        Well to be honest, while listing those tips I was thinking of the same question you asked. To me, The most important barrier is awareness. People should have enough determination to do that. Also maybe for economic interests people are easy prey of manipulation by advertising so this sustainable living comes with sustainable thinking. Are we enough free and dependent, that's the real question

    Great solutions but don't you think the economy might be affected by these.

    If people will change their minds and follow the laid down procedures and make adjustments to our ways of life it will be in our own interests and benefit.

    But in our country some places houses are swept away by the floods, roads are destroyed and some are evacuating from there.

    I have some opinions about how to survive heatwaves.And they include;
    #1. Avoid strenuous activity.( i mean slow down when doing things).
    #2.Seek out cool areas to go.(areas like; pool side, air conditioned rooms)
    #3.Drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration.
    #4.Avoid contact with too much sun.
    Thank You for reading.

    I think we should try to figure out a way to control the weather so as to proctect our families from this climate in our world.

    How to keep our family safe is by:
    Power your home with renewable energy.
    Choose a utility company that generates at least half its power from wind or solar and has been certified by Green-e Energy, an organization that vets renewable energy options. If that isn’t possible for you, take a look at your electric bill; many utilities now list other ways to support renewable sources on their monthly statements and websites.

    Weatherize, weatherize, weatherize.
    “Building heating and cooling are among the biggest uses of energy,” Haq says. Indeed, heating and air-conditioning account for almost half of home energy use. You can make your space more energy efficient by sealing drafts and ensuring it’s adequately insulated. You can also claim federal tax credits for many energy-efficiency home improvements.

    Invest in energy-efficient appliances.
    Since they were first implemented nationally in 1987, efficiency standards for dozens of appliances and products have kept 2.3 billion tons of carbon dioxide out of the air. That’s about the same amount as the annual carbon pollution coughed up by nearly 440 million cars. “Energy efficiency is the lowest-cost way to reduce emissions,” Haq says. When shopping for refrigerators, washing machines, and other appliances, look for the Energy Star label. It will tell you which are the most efficient.

    Reduce water waste.
    Saving water reduces carbon pollution, too. That's because it takes a lot of energy to pump, heat, and treat your water. So take shorter showers, turn off the tap while brushing your teeth, and switch to WaterSense-labeled fixtures and appliances. The EPA estimates that if just one out of every 100 American homes were retrofitted with water-efficient fixtures, about 100 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year would be saved—avoiding 80,000 tons of global warming pollution.

    Actually eat the food you buy—and make less of it meat.
    Approximately 10 percent of U.S. energy use goes into growing, processing, packaging, and shipping food—about 40 percent of which just winds up in the landfill. “If you’re wasting less food, you’re likely cutting down on energy consumption,” Haq says. And since livestock products are among the most resource-intensive to produce, eating meat-free meals can make a big difference, too.

    Buy better bulbs.
    LED lightbulbs use up to 80 percent less energy than conventional incandescents. They’re also cheaper in the long run: A 10-watt LED that replaces your traditional 60-watt bulb will save you $125 over the lightbulb’s life.
