Increase in degrees
We have all heard something about global warming or climate change, but many people have not really analyzed the changes that might occur over the next few years. We are at a point where we can create a change and save thousands of species, but if we continue with disinterest and the same habits, both at home and in industries, we will begin to suffer the consequences and we will be signing the sentence of our own children.
At Globarkettire we are very concerned about changing habits and eliminating waste such as scrap tire disposal, which represent a great risk to society. Each year, each scrap tire disposal increases its size considerably and we can see huge extensions of tires stacked unused, contributing to the appearance of insects and rodents that cause a lot of diseases, as well as stagnant water that produces the proliferation of mosquitoes that cause dengue.
And this is not all, because when disintegrating, the millions of tires emit gases that cause greater global warming. Likewise, they contaminate the subsoil and the greatest danger of all would be that a fire is provoked, since when burned they will emit toxic gases that will produce diseases such as cancer, asthma, respiratory problems, among others to people and animals.
On the other hand, each scrap tire disposal in the sea inhibits the growth of marine life and pollutes the water, causing changes in the ecosystem since the fish cannot live in these places. In addition, the fish that are nearby are contaminated so this contamination will also reach us because thousands of times these fish end up at our table.
Increasing the size of the scrap tire disposal is a danger, there are currently islands made of plastic and soon there will be more plastic than fish in the sea. The same happens with tires. Every year, countries discard millions of tires without thinking about what to do with these tires or the ecological, social and economic problems that they will cause in their countries.
There are many articles in which we can investigate what changes might occur if we do nothing. There is a book called six degrees, written by Mark Lynas, who explains what the consequences of the increase in temperature on the planet will be, degree by degree. This book makes us analyze on the actions we have to take today to avoid a disastrous future.
This increase in temperature is compared with the pre-industrial era. In this book, they mention that by increasing one degree the Arctic ice will melt, which would cause an increase in sea level which would cause the disappearance of large areas of land and coastal cities.
In addition, a drought would begin in the western part of the United States; there would be changes in the agriculture of many countries, as well as the disappearance of some foods such as avocados. In addition, there would be natural disasters never before seen in different countries, as well as extreme temperatures that would cause major social and economic problems.
By the time the temperature increases by two degrees (compared to the pre-industrial era), the glaciers would begin to melt faster which will result in less water available to the population in the future. In addition, polar bears (which are already in danger of extinction) will disappear. The temperature changes will cause the migration of animals to other places where the temperatures adapt to their needs and the corals will disappear which will radically change the marine ecosystem.
Increase two degrees maximum is the challenge we have, and as we can see, if we manage to increase two degrees maximum we will have lost many natural resources, species and plants. But there would be hope. The problem will begin if we do not achieve the goal of the two degrees as this will cause more drastic changes and there will be no turning back.
As of the third degree, the Amazon will be in danger of disappearing due to fires caused by high temperatures, in addition, these fires will cause an increase in CO2 emissions to the atmosphere, causing the planet’s temperature to continue increasing (without control). In addition, the book mentions that the Alps will no longer be as we know them because they will no longer have snow, the heat will increase in Europe and hurricanes will increase their power around the world.
If we reach the fourth degree, the glaciers of the world will begin to melt with greater speed which will cause water scarcity, there will be no snow so no more water will be produced. The ice melting will cause the rise of the sea level and rivers so whole cities around the world disappear underwater. In addition, there will be shortages in agriculture due to natural disasters such as floods and extreme temperatures, which will cause major social problems due to lack of food.
Each degree will bring more and more problems and each degree means more difficulty to survive. By the time we reach the fifth grade, many cities will be devastated by natural disasters or underwater, the underdeveloped countries will have great social problems and will begin a war to acquire water since many cities like Los Angeles will not have water. Then, the war to acquire this valuable liquid could be imminent.
The lack of water, not only will be a problem for humans, since hundreds of species will become extinct due to temperatures and lack of water and at this point the Earth will already be very different. There are people who might come to think that we won´t live this so it doesn´t matter, but they are wrong because if we continue with the same pace, this scenario will be real in the coming decades.
Upon reaching the sixth grade, the Earth would experience a lack of nutrients, more than 70% of the species will have disappeared, there would be more deserts and the sea would rule since more than 85% of the surface of the Earth would be water, natural disasters will be common so our existence would be constantly threatened.
