Many people think that a new environmental regulation is needed to tackle the problem of climate change caused by human ignorance and excess.
Air pollution has become a grave reason for concern because carbon emissions from industrial plants and other sources took their toll on the entire ecosystem. Unfortunately, we all have to deal with the consequences of actions that could have been prevented.
One of the most devastating greenhouse gasses is Methane. This gas represents the cause of 25 percent of the climate change that has occurred until now. Worse, the biggest contributor to the methane pollution is the industry based on extracting oil and gas.
Fortunately, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has taken active measures to stop the methane pollution caused by this industry. Based on the new environmental regulation, the production of the natural gas might increase with more than 25 percent over the next ten years.
Plus, by reducing this source of air pollution, people will be less exposed to the risk of developing cancer and asthma. Furthermore, the statistics showed that the damage caused by carbon emissions from industrial plants was estimated to billions of dollars.
Experts believe that something must be done quickly in order to deal with this problem. Otherwise, the mountain communities will suffer because the local economy and tourism will drop off. Many of the world’s corporations have done nothing to protect the world ecosystem. Therefore, a new environmental law will reduce air pollution.
Unfortunately, climate change has led to larger forest fires, less fresh water, severe droughts and many other problems. Recent research has shown that the carbon emissions level has reached its peak this year. Many climate change issues were reported throughout the world, not only in the United States.
Many European countries have experienced sudden weather shifts over the last two months. Unfortunately, this situation will get worse if industrial plants will reduce their activity. Carbon emissions will affect our world, and the environmental laws will not be enough to repair the damage.
Hopefully, big corporations will become more aware of the fact that they also need to live on this planet. Furthermore, many people are expected to change their perspective towards this situation and support the new environmental regulation.
