Our world today is been faced with many challenges which are termed as GLOBAL ISSUES. There are many debates on them in view of providing efficient and lasting solutions.
Taking the issue of global warming for instance. We all know that the depletion of the ozone layer is as a result of certain chemical substances which scientists called CFC (cholorofluorocarbon). This chemical in the past were been used for the production of aerosol spray, storyfoam, etc. Once they are released into the atmosphere, they are been broken down by solar radiation, giving out chlorine ions as one of its products. These chlorine ions become the monsters that reduced ozone (O3) into oxygen (O2). As this continues, more ozone layer will be depleted. Coupled with other global issues, it is not that they don’t know what to do. There is a solution to all these problems. Despite the Montreal Protocol signed then by many nations against the use of CFC, majority have gone back to the use of these chemical substances all in the name of business and making profit to the detriment of the human lives.
The earth cries every day due to the adverse effects of UV light on the skin, eyes, crops and ocean plants. They told us that global emission was near zero but it wasn’t true.
The major thing retarding all efforts towards finding a lasting solution to all these issues is that, we give more priority to its economic impact rather than its social impact. They only see what they lose economically than the lives of the people been damaged if such chemicals are banned. Is there hope?
In our own little way, let’s help our world to be a better place for us all through creating awareness about the causes of global issues. Thanks
