Climate change will soon be irreversible and the only way that can be prevented is if governments across the world implement and enforce much stronger legislation to minimise pollutants, particularly from industry and factories, which account for the majority of pollution and emissions.
Carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide are the three most prevalent greenhouse gases and their emissions must be curbed in order for climate change to be slowed down or reversed. In order to minimise emissions of these gases before it is too late, the government must implement initiatives to go carbon and emission neutral by 2030 and then go carbon negative.
The severity of climate change must be implemented more into the school curriculum than it is at present because education is the first step towards lasting change and communicating the severity of the issue from childhood would be extremely effective.
The worrying majority of the public is relatively indifferent to climate change and a lot of people don't realise how much of an issue it is at the moment. There is very little time left to prevent climate change from becoming irreversible and the public must be educated on the subject so that they understand the necessity of doing their part to minimise their carbon footprint and how to do so.
