I started ‘conservationgirl’ because I found out that just talking to people none stop about how much this planet needs us, wasn’t really working.
Whenever I brought up the topic of global warming, people would always snigger, and be like, ‘Oh, here she goes again’…but honestly, I don’t understand why?
Don’t people care about the planet we live on?
Now, this blog isn’t just going to be a place for me to rant at people about why this planet is literally dying beneath our feet…it’ll also be a place where I can give you easy lifestyle changes, to help you become a more environmentally friendly person.
As some of you would view making the slightest changes to your life a big pain, here is a statistic for you:
By 2100, the average global temperature is expected to rise by 5.8 degrees Celsius. Now, this may not seem like a lot, but for places like the Greenlandic Ice Shelf, this is literally a life or death situation. Following on from this, some of you may be thinking, ‘Oh what’s one loss of an Ice Shelf going to do to us’…and the answer is a lot! Well, for a starter, England is going to get a lot colder. The warm currents giving us, well, decent summers, will be diluted by cold fresh water, meaning more rainy days for Britain! Oh, and another thing, we’ll only lose half of Bangladesh, but that’s not a big problem is it?
What about the already vulnerable countries in Central Africa…temperatures are expected to rise by 7 degrees Celsius. As a result, agriculture will decrease, water resources will decrease, and the spread of airborne diseases will increase. That’s just what they need isn’t it?!
People have to understand that the things we do daily have a massive impact on other, less fortunate areas around the world. Just because we can’t see it with our own eyes, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening.
Now hopefully, what I have written here would have had some sort of an impact on you. So, come to my blog on Thursday, to find out some awesome ways in which we can save the planet!
