The earth is home to many men and women who use the land and environment to survive. Whether it be from third world countries where the only food available is the food you plant for yourself, to highly industrialized countries such as America where farms package your food and ship them around the nation. The environment serves as the foundation to human survival. The earth gives so much and asks so little in return. Ironically, men and women all around the world are responsible for the depletion of this vital planet. There are many things that are caused by the wastefulness and carelessness of humans, but climate change is one of the more immediate threats. The effects of climate change throughout the world is a serious issue, however, people …show more content…
But not even America is in the clear when it comes to the damaging effects of climate change. America is a large nation that contains many different ecosystems. The website globalchange.gov splits America into 8 different regions to show what has already began to happen, and what will happen in the futre if nothing is done. Georgia is in the Southeast and Caribbean region, Hawaii has it’s own region, there is the Southwest region, Northwest region, Great Plain region, Midwest region, and Northeast region. The effects of climate change are different depending on the region of America you live in. One similarity throughout the regions is agriculture and the concern of decreasing livestock and crops in the future. “Farmers can explore new crop options, but these adaptations are not cost- or risk-free“ (“National Climate Assessment” 1). Climate change is affecting the very basis of survival. Farms are a crucial aspect to daily life. Without farms and the food they provide Americans, and people in general, would die.

The first is on a large scale, and it starts with government. “Maintaining a current list of all agencies engaged in climate-related work, coordinating national meetings between partners and promoting national and international partnerships are critical actions that countries should undertake” (Kumaresan 204). There are plenty of government organizations out there that were created specifically for bringing awareness to climate change, like The Department of Agriculture, Global Climate Change or even The U.S. Global Change Research Program . But why not have one government funded organization that helps organize everything. If not an organization, just make climate change be a mandatory topic at every UN meeting. The other ways are to regulate businesses, fine anyone that releases an absurd amount of trash into the oceans. Push businesses to start using more environmentally friendly impetus such as wind, solar, biomass and geothermal energy. (Kumaresan 204). The second way to stop climate change is on a more local level. Everyone knows the the three R’s, reduce, reuse, and recycle. Why not take it farther and start carpooling, or if possible, even ride a bike to work. The less chemicals and exhausts being released the
