There is nothing that we as individuals can do to prevent climate change
Nowadays climate change is a growing threat not only to some countries but to thewhole world environment. We have to become aware of this issue and do something to avoid it from getting worse. Personally I disagree with this title because Ithink that in fact there are a lot of things that we as individuals can do to prevent climate change.
Firstly, everything we do in our routine lives emitscarbon dioxide into the atmosphere. That means that even making small changes in what we do, can have a positive impact in the prevention of climate change. So, asa first step, we should replace the use of cars by public transport which is much less polluting.
Secondly, we should turn off appliances, machines andlights off when we've finished using them, it is very helpful to save energy and it costs nothing. In addition, another simple way to save energy and water is totake shorter showers. So, as you will use less hot water, the water heater will save a big amount of energy.
Finally, in my opinion, we need to work together asa community to achieve success; otherwise the effort that some people could make would be ruined by the ones who keep polluting the atmosphere. So, it isimportant to run campaigns to make everyone know how we are endangering our planet and that there are many really simple things that we can do to protect it.
Inconclusion, I believe that there is a lot that we as individuals can do to prevent climate change, now we have to put it in practice.
