Global warming and climate change are becoming more and more important in our society. They are both critically important and are at devastating risks to society. The ozone is under severe attack and evidence of this is being felt by the tremendous heat that is now affecting our earth.

The climate of the earth is so haphazard that it has become increasingly difficult to monitor, prepare for and control. Nevertheless there are steps that we as humans can take to help combat these changes.

We can begin by choosing to use recycled materials. Recycling is a habit we should all adhere to because it reduces the stress on the environment. Many of the materials that are popularly being used take several years to degrade. By using recycled materials we alleviate the stress placed on the environment to degrade materials especially plastic. Let us avoid using excess packaging by using products that can be recycled or that have been recycled.

If we can we should eliminate plastic all together as this waste product has become a nuisance to our environment, especially to our oceans. Plastics suffocating our sea creatures even our most precious and exotic ones.

Let us conserve energy. Our world is becoming more and more technologically advanced which will require the use of electricity to keep all these machines going. Therefore to reduce our e-waste, let us use energy conservation methods as much as possible. Using fluorescent light bulbs is much better because they last longer. Invest in renewable energy such as solar, wind (if possible) and biogas (especially if you operate a farm).

Limit your use of paper as much as possible especially those of us who are in the working world. Use emails, pdfs and so forth to communicate with each other. Print less that way we do not waste paper, and by using less paper we save trees from which paper is made.

Other ways to combat global warming and climate change are: buying unbleached or chlorine free paper products, example of these are coffee filters and bath tissue. Buying only the amount you need when purchasing hazardous products so there is minimal left overs and wastage. Using rechargeable batteries to help in the reduction of toxic waste and washing in cold water when using a washing machine saves energy.

Climate Change is one of the major international and environmental issues of our time..

Nature sustains itself through a cycle that consistently balances changes in one direction with exactly opposite changes in the other direction, resulting in stable equilibriums. The fine balances between the processes that sustain such equilibriums are the pillars on which all dynamic forms of life and civilization thrive, and disturbance therein results in a crisis.

Given the circumstances their actions were expected. Respect should be given to the newborn King of the Jews.
