Plant more trees, use paper bags to avert climate change
The environment is a big resource to life and therefore should be preserved so as not to affect the climatic conditions. Protecting the environment is the only way of recovering the lost climatic conditions of a given area.
Statistics have shown that almost all the activities carried out by human beings to earn a living have in one way or the other contributed to changes in the climate.
For instance, in Uganda today, several homes are supported by family members who work the transport industry - Boda boda riders, taxi or bus drivers and conductors etc.
The transport industry has contributed a great deal towards climate change, given that one molecule of carbon dioxide stays in the atmosphere for about 20 years before it is diffused.
Industries have worsened the situation by increasing carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. Besides, some factories produce polythene papers some of which are used for making bags.
However, polythene paper is detrimental to the environment. It is important to find alternatives to polythene bags and also sensitise people about the dangers of polythene papers. This will help in protecting the environment in order to achieve positive climatic change in the long run. We should also plant trees in our homes. Planting trees is one of the cheapest ways of controlling climate change. Even people who are knowledgeable about the importance of vegetation cover prefer compounds with concrete floors instead of the ones with grass.
Everyone has to play a role to ensure that we reconstitute the environment so as to achieve a stable and enjoyable climate. In short, we should use paper bags for shopping, plant trees everywhere so as to avoid being confronted with adverse climatic conditions like in Teso today.
