Climate Change Challenges Sustainability
Climate change is the most significant environmental issue humanity will confront in the coming decade. Climate change, which is triggered by a rise in global temperatures, causes an array of harmful impacts on earth, affecting the physical, biological, and human systems. Melting of the poles, glacial regression, snow melting, warming and thawing of permafrost, floods, droughts, and sea level rise are all examples of climate change effects on the planet's physical processes. Death of flora and fauna in terrestrial and marine ecosystems, as well as wildfires, are the most common occurrences in biological systems. Climate change has an impact on and damages crops and food production in human systems, which leads to diseases, mortality, and loss of economic livelihoods. Climate change, economic scarcity, and poverty are all linked in one way or another. The commitment to conserve natural resources and maintain global ecosystems in order to support health and quality of life today and in the future is known as environmental sustainability. Climate change is one of the most significant problems to environmental sustainability which raises development costs by 25 to 30 percent in the underdeveloped and developing countries.
