Climate change remains to be a controversial topic which continues to spark a lot of skepticism.

Recent events such as heatwaves in otherwise cold areas in the UK and Alaska; consistent sea level rise (3.3 milliliters/year according to NASA); and just this August 1st, a photo was released by NASA showing the demise of Okjökull glacier atop the Ok volcano in Iceland. This was the first glacier ever declared extinct due to global warming.

UAE’s Fight Against Climate Change
The earth is our home. It’s where us as humans thrive, where we create and build our dreams, where we get our sustenance to live a long, happy, and healthy lives. It is our responsibility to take care and nourish it not just for ourselves but for the generations to come.
So the next time you dispose of plastic, turn on your car engine, purchase the latest gadgets, think twice. The earth’s future is in our hands and we must act now.
