In Our Hands by Akanksha Kudal
How does climate change affect your community? We asked contributors from around the world this question. Akanksha Kudal, a member of the Indian KidSpirit Ed Board responds:
‘Earth in crisis’ means that the earth has a great problem — this problem is global warming. Those responsible are human beings. We are destroying our planet without thinking about the next generation.
Because of global warming, there is a drastic change in our climate, resulting in an imbalance of conditions and disturbing the ecosystem of the earth. The main cause of global warming is pollution and deforestation, all of which will surely affect us in the future.
However, it is never too late to mend. If we start working on it, then we can save our planet. We can prevent or reduce global warming by adapting in various ways.
It is very important to spread awareness if we want to save our earth. People should know about the harmful effects of global warming.
Those living in urban areas are not affected directly, but the people living in rural areas are, because the forests are like homes for them and all of their animals. So it is in our hands to save our lives and to save our land.
