Running head: A DYING WORLD 1 A Dying World Mohammad Najjar Woodbury University A DYING WORLD 2 A Dying World Imagine you are a professional soccer player who just signed the best deal of his life in the best soccer club in the world, amazing right? Until you can’t face the press during your first press meeting because the weather is too hot and you feel so dizzy that you could faint any moment! Well stop imagining because it actually happened to Eder Militao a Brazilian centre back who just signed for Real Madrid in Spain. Can you imagine temperatures so high that a professional soccer player with all his fitness can barely sit down and give a press conference comfortably? That is not something excitement can do to you but temperatures above 35 degrees could definitely do that to you! It is no secret that the environment we live in is at a stretch to sustain us and from the moment the first human being stepped on planet earth they did not only begin to leave a physical footprint, but also a carbon one. That carbon footprint has grown exponentially with the advancements from the industrial revolution and globalization that has allowed the world to be more accessible due to the evolving means of transportation. The commercial wheels of the global economy all have to run on some type of fuel. Unfortunately, this need for energy has been based on the massive consumption of fossil fuels. The sobering documentary, “Before the Flood” dives deep into the volatile, dangerous and negligent climate situation humans have put themselves in by choosing to abuse these fossil fuels. “The planet produces 26,000 tons of carbon dioxide annually” those are Bill Gates’s words in his ted talk “Innovating to Zero,” Fossil fuels are defined in the film as coal, oil and natural gas. Oil powers the majority of our transportation while coal and gas run our electricity (Before the Flood). The problem is that the burning of these fossil fuels is what produces the greenhouse gasses that are warming our planet’s climate. In this current state of partisan politics, some of our world leaders have decided to ignore science and reason to deny global warming is happening and that it is NOT a manmade problem. The real reason most politicians who chose to deny climate change is due to the fact that powerful fossil fuels A DYING WORLD 3 corporations and rich and powerful individuals like the Koch brothers lobby congress and buy their vote. Coal and oil companies know that their source of energy is not only unsustainable, but it is also bad for the environment. By causing division in Washington and disrupting mass media in order to confuse the public, they are able to deter a shift to clean and renewable energy sources. A different wave of deniers includes those who believe in the science of manmade global warming, but profess that we can’t do anything about it or that doing anything to better are carbon emissions will would bankrupt our economy (Demelle, 2018). Despite these deniers there are already massive advancements on sourcing clean energy that can replace fossil fuels in existence right now. Elon Musk, founder of the Tesla motor vehicle company has proven with his model of all electric cars, batteries and solar panels that the automobile industry can run on clean and renewable energy. He built the Gigafactory where this year he has begun selling his model 3 car. This car is the first all-electric vehicle that is reasonably priced and has a long driving range on a single charge. However, simply changing from gasoline to electric powered vehicles is not enough to reduce global warming to a manageable level. In addition to using solar power, there is wind and tidal energy sources that can be used to create electricity. Carbon dioxide emissions are not solely due to the manufacturing industry but in my opinion a more devastating cause is deforestation. There are three major rainforest regions on earth: The Amazon Basin in South America, the Congo in Africa and the forests of Southeast Asia, including Indonesia. These regions are vital for our planet. The vast amount of plants helps convert carbon into oxygen via photosynthesis. One of these vital places is the 6.5 million-acre Leuser Ecosystem on the island of Sumatra; and it is in great danger (Allen, 2018). These areas are facing deforestation at the hands of human beings for profit. An unfortunate example of this is the production of palm oil. Palm oil is an oil that is used in many foods you can find at your local grocery store (Allen). It is easy to grow and has a high margin of return. People in this region are destroying that natural habitats of animals and clearing the rainforest to create palm oil fields. A DYING WORLD 4 The cattle industry is also destroying these vital areas. Globally, livestock farming accounts for approximately 10-15% of total greenhouse gas emissions and is the source of 50-60% of methane emissions (Eshel, 2018). There are simple things we can do to reduce the impact of these industries. First and foremost, you can boycott purchasing items with palm oils. Changing your personal diet by going vegetarian to lower beef consumption is also a solution. If you can’t go vegetarian simply changing from beef to chicken will have a similar effect. These lifestyle changes are necessary because if the planet heats up by 4 degrees, this will cause Greenland and the Antarctic ice caps to melt. This will raise sea levels and many low-lying masses of land will be underwater (Strauss, 2018). This will cause unpredictable problems, mass migration and hysteria in those regions. Some places that will cease to exist are Florida. Not only will sea levels rise but the ocean will also get warmer causing a significant of marine life to go extinct. This will disrupt the global food supply and the natural food chain potentially leading to more catastrophic events. Possibly and most likely the end of life as we know it and perhaps the end of the human species on earth. In the future global warming can lead to even bigger problems for the human race and all living things for that matter. David Cohan addresses some of these problems as well in his book. He says, “We have eight more years to reverse the flow of carbon into the atmosphere, or else we will soar past the red lines that guard the stability of the great ice shelves.” This quote means that if we don’t decrease the amount of carbon, we are putting into the atmosphere that in eight years there will be no turning back and the ice shelves will melt and people won’t be able to prevent it. It is very important to prevent the melting of these ice shelves because not only does it threaten the lives of those creatures living in these Polar Regions but also if the ice melts the sea level will rise. The rising sea levels can cause us a lot of problems because low coastal regions could become flooded and uninhabitable for human life. This will force people to move inland and any property that they owned on the coast that they can’t bring with them would get destroyed. Also, with everyone moving inland, new homes and cities will have to be built leaving living arrangements very crowded. A DYING WORLD 5 Also, where will people grow crops or raise animals for food? If there is less land for people to live there will be much less land for people to produce food, which could lead to a shortage in food supply and ultimately many people starving. This food and land shortage will cause complete anarchy where people will fight, steal, and kill each other in order to try to survive and get enough food for themselves and their family. It is because of problems facing us like this that lead Cohen to say, “The next few years are a final exam for the human species.” If humans fail this test and cannot find ways produce cleaner energy and to help the environment then this could very well be that last test of the human race because our race may not live long enough to face another. These huge, terrible, scary changes to people’s future lives could be avoided if people today make much smaller changes to their everyday lives, like using fewer fossil fuels (a.k.a. less electric, drive few places), taking steps to helping find alternative fuels and cleaning the earth of pollution. All in all, this ted talk and the movie that was recommended in the comments section by a God sent user made me feel concerned for future generations Especially with our current leaders’ position in the matter since most of them do not see the threat and are slow to act on it. Not only did they remove USA from the landmark Paris climate agreement but they are also in denial about climate change. We are nearing a teetering point and if we do not act quickly, we could destroy our only home. I am optimistic that the human race will be able to correct its error and look beyond politics and base its decisions on facts. I am eager to see us move into a better direction of clean and renewable energy. Companies like Tesla give me great hope and inspiration.
