A Stellar Flare of Young Adult Writing and Visual Art
BY DHRUTI HALAMBI
Fifteen marine species evanesced from existence Marine corals wrecked, why can’t we keep our distance? Climate change and global warming melting ice caps Moose’s, Sea Turtles, and Polar Bears forced to live on scraps Poor white lemuroid possum, it’s not heartwarming That it's the first animal to go extinct because of global warming Climate change slowly defacing earth Adverse effects of fossil fuels taking birth Our one and only earth and our exquisite oceans Are getting destroyed because of our abhorrent potions The good news is that we created climate change Because we know what we did, solutions can be arranged Climate change and global warming are urgent problems Issues whose consequences are quite solemn However, every problem has a solution Some may take time, but with resolution Every problem has a solution We can undo what we did, we don't have to grope Solutions are there, in the form of Climate Hope Take, for example, the Renewable Energy Revolution Sustain our resources, lower risk of fuel spills, it's a crucial solution Using biomimicry, our own environment can act as the nourishment for innumerable innovations By observing the tendencies of plants, we can take in clues, use them as foundations Though gradual, climate hope can be found in things as effortless as planting trees They take in carbon dioxide, the determinant for global warming, feeding the world with some ease It's essential to remember that anytime, anywhere, change can give birth Make your voice heard, make solutions heard, raise awareness, transform earth Climate Change and Global Warming are out there, making Earth bleed, But climate hope is out as well, climate hope can be the evolution that we need.
