Preserve environments: A heritage for future generations


In a stern warning issued by European scientists on 8 November 2023, it was declared that this year would mark the warmest globally in a staggering 125,000 years. Startlingly, October of this year clinched the title of the warmest month in the same time span, registering a 0.4-degree Celsius increase compared to the previous October. Records reveal that this October surpassed the average atmospheric temperature of October between 1850 and 1900 by a notable 1.7 degrees Celsius as reported by different news agencies.
The surge in global temperatures this year is attributed to escalating greenhouse gas emissions and the influence of El Niño in the eastern Pacific Ocean. The consequential climate change, a consequence of El Niño, is unprecedented and reverberating across the globe. Hence, everybody needs to endure the overheat of these Saturn climatic conditions.
A survey by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) indicates that the ten hottest years within the past 150 years occurred during the period between the late 20th Century and early 21st Century. Currently, the world witnesses an annual rise of 0.6 degrees Celsius or one degree Fahrenheit in average temperature, fostering deforestation and global warming through excessive carbon dioxide emissions.
Presently, the world grapples with the detrimental impacts of recurring El Niño and La Niña phenomena. Consequently, environmental degradation, floods, droughts, heat waves, forest fires, storms, glacier melting, rising sea levels, and food and water shortages afflict the entire globe, including Myanmar. Climate experts have long asserted that these adversities stem from the heedless activities of humans.
Despite numerous countries expressing steadfast commitments to combat climate change, some falter in upholding these promises, evading responsibility for the collective future. This raises the pivotal question of how to prevent global warming and climate change. The answer lies in a collective emphasis on averting the aforementioned problems, which pose an existential threat to humanity.
Crucially, individuals and nations alike must curtail the consumption of fossil fuels, significant contributors to carbon dioxide emissions, and actively engage in preventing deforestation. Simultaneously, efficient utilization of renewable energy, along with endeavours to conserve energy and reduce carbon dioxide emissions, is very important.
Failure to act will subject humans and all living beings to even harsher consequences of climate change and global warming in the future. To ensure prolonged coexistence, the preservation of the environment to enhance global climatic conditions becomes paramount, requiring timely and concerted efforts from the entire world.
