Let’s Talk About Climate Change

Yes, I believe climate change is caused by the actions of humans in this format of oppression. There are many reasons why I believe this. One reason why I say the actions of human beings are a kind of oppression against climate change is because of the fossil fuel industry’s fault. Companies like BP and others know exactly what they are doing to our climate. They also know that these consequences disproportionately impact the lives and livelihoods of people of color and those that are living below the poverty line. The majority of companies and governments have been stalling on climate solutions for a long time now and they have shown that they really do not care about the citizens. They only care about money. An example of the consequences of climate change is that in July 2019, it was reported that six million people were under threat from rising flood waters across South Asia. There were a lot of people across the region that was displaced as a result of the heavy monsoon rain. In addition to this example, there has been an educated guess that by 2050, one in every seven people in Bangladesh will be displaced due to climate change. Unfortunately, 18 million people and more people will have to move due to sea level rise alone. My last example of climate change which is kind of a form of oppression by the acts of humans takes place in Delhi. In Delhi, the temperatures rose to a record high of 48C in 2019. This is a serious problem that more people should talk about. People that are in the lower class/ community will possibly have more health impacts due to air pollution from the diesel vehicles such as lung disease, dementia, heart disease, and diabetes.
