But there’s a bad news! The change in climate is not just affecting our environment but also has a bad impact on this mighty mountain. Yes! Global warming is badly affecting Mount Everest.
|Oh No! The Climate Change Has A Bad Impact On Mount Everest Too!|
Recent reports state that the glaciers of mount Everest have shrunk by 28% over the past 40 years. It is all because of the climate change. MQSLCC, Hunan University and Chinese Academy of Sciences released a research report recently stating that glacier area on the south side of Mount Everest in Nepal has shrunken by 26%. They also said that it has been getting warmer and warmer since past 50 years which is not good for mount Everest. The melting snow of the Mount Everest can lead to a big disaster.
It was really sad and scary to read the report. When I came to know about all this, I was really shocked and that’s why I decided that even you should know this. This is a result of our bad behavior towards environment. Yes, I wrote ‘OUR’ and not ‘YOU’ because even I am a part of the population.
Now you will ask me what’s the fault? So, let me tell you fault is where you just speak up and update statuses on facebook and twitter but don’t do anything. Here, serious action is required. Trust me, there are endless ways to help the planet.
The easiest way is to plant more and more trees. I know you have heard this endless times but believe me, this IS the most easiest way to help and save the planet.
There are some more easy ways that will help our planet. Inculcate the habit of switching off the lights and fans, every time you leave your room. Turn off your vehicle’s engine when the signal is red. Also, avoid using polythene. It is really bad.
You can opt for e-bills. Not only this, but you should also opt for e-tickets when you are traveling. When talking about paper-saving, then it’s not about the e-bills and e-tickets, but you can opt of e-organizers, soft copies of documents, images, etc. to save the paper.
Saving paper helps a lot in saving the environment because the less paper you use, the less trees shall be cut in order to make papers.
These were just small little things that actually can help a lot.
Remember, this planet OURS… and we can not leave it just like that. I just wanted to share this news with you all to make you aware of what’s going on around us.
It’s never late to stand up and help the planet. Today is the day! Start worrying about our planet.
