Climate Change Affects Weather Patterns And Causes Sea Level Rise

Global Climate Change (93).jpg

“UN Sustainable Development Goals. People are experiencing the significant impacts of climate change, including changing weather patterns and rising sea levels.”

===============================================================

One single sentence says it all. Weather patterns are changing, sea levels rising, rainfall becoming more frequent and heavy in parts of the world (e.g. here in Finland) while some geographical regions, e.g. even in Australia, suffer from extreme drought. There are areas in Australia where it has not been raining one single time for more than a decade, perhaps even longer. Heavy irrigation is therefore a necessity in Australia to grow anything at all, while in other parts of the world crop yields are being lost due to either too much rainfall, too much rainfall when harvest would be due, or, as in Southern Europe this year, heatwaves and drought destroying crops. Hurricanes in the Caribbean and in the East coast in the United States, extreme wildfires in California. Extreme floods in Asia, for example in Bangladesh.

And, what about the African continent, which so often seems to go completely forgotten? What about the extreme droughts and famine in e.g. Somalia? People here in Finland sometimes forget why we have refugees from Somalia in this country. These people would never have come here unless they had no other option. It is that simple. Climate change forces people to flee their homes, even their home countries, making them climate refugees. If and when proper action is being taken worldwide, we can possibly prevent further damage on our common environment instead of blaming e.g. refugees for a number of problems. Or, get to the root of the problem and start blaming those who cause and worsen these (climate) events.
