Climatechange is the price we pay as humans to our careless actions andreluctance to see the early signs. Climate change is caused by theaccumulated Green House gases that are a result of human pollution(Hardy, 2003, pp. 11). The climate change has affected the balance ofthe ecological system. It has resulted in the extinction of animalsand plants species, increased glacial effects, increased globaltemperatures, declined wetland areas, increased deserts, increasedocean and sea levels, and unpredictable weather patterns withtsunamis and hurricanes being a common feature (Hardy, 2003, pp. 48).
Theinformation accessed from National Aeronautics and SpaceAdministration (NASA) are reliable. The information accessed has abackground on the history of climate change, the signs of adversityof climate change, the causes, effects and the possible solutions(Allison,2011, pp. 11).Backed by scientific data, images and pictures of the effects ofclimate change, the site provides the information necessary for oneto understand the intensity of climate change. The authors who arespace explorers and scientists presents science in an attractive way.The site has videos and interactive questions with additionalinformation on climate change. Being an internationally relied on thebody, it employs competent scientific reports, observe ethics, andpresent statistical studies that clearly shed light on climatechange. Its credibility is associated with it attaining thefirst-hand information from their weather stations.
Theinformation contained in the Natural Resource Defense Council (NRDC)also presents a different angle towards the understanding of climatechange. It is reliable in that it cover climate change from theintroduction, impacts of climate change, and insights of the world’stop polluters, the clean energy plan and the possible solutions(David,2015, pp. 1).It also covers single the water bodies, agriculture and food, healthand wildlife. The body is bound by work ethics thus presentsunbiased, well-informed data for the public consumption. It alsoexercises caution not to create tension on earth through thesolutions provided.
Thearticle presented by the NRDC is more compelling than that presentedby NASA. Apart from the scientific data and prove of climate change.The article goes ahead to elaborate on the aspects of life thatclimate change affect (David,2015, pp. 1).The focus on the wildlands, air, energy, water, oceans, wildlife andagriculture give specific information thus imparting the in-depthknowledge of the climate change. The involvement of EnvironmentalJustice and US laws and policies acquaints one with the necessaryknowledge to initiate change towards curbing climate change effects. The idea of nuclear energy, disarmament, nonproliferation, andrecycling are explained to make it clear why we need to embrace it.The key interest in the solutions is towards adaptation through theuse of clean energy among other practices and reduction of theeffects of climate change. The article also handles theinternational issues arising due to climate change keeping you in theknow.
Familiaritywith the information changes the perception that climate change isdealt with by the government. Rather, the information makes climatechange adaptation and curbing of its effect a personalresponsibility. The information points out the fundamental aspects ofhumans the economic, social, political and health are affected thusthe need to take an initiative. Also, the scientific data presentedby NASA drives towards change. It explains the greenhouses gassesgeneration in daily human activities, how it has increased the sunpenetration to the earth and the effects that come with it. Thegraphics and explanations make it easy to the understanding of theclimatic conditions over the years and the futuristic predictions ofthe temperature level.
