A few days ago, Colombia has suffered from a massive landslide that left over 200 people dead. A few weeks before that, Indonesia has also suffered from the same problem, although there were fewer casualties.
According to the witnesses, the landslides were caused by violent rains and heavy flooding. They have been in the area for a long time, but they have never witnessed such kind of natural disaster. In short, we are now living in an era where the effects of global warming have become worse.
Our dependence on dirty energy like fossil fuel has become one of the biggest reasons why global warming is taking place. If we don’t do something about it, we might suffer from bigger natural disasters. The good thing is that there were smaller countries that have taken the lead in fighting global warming.
They have shown that if they can do it, other countries have no reason for not following. Smaller countries have fewer financial resources, but they have managed to make the necessary changes. They have also relied on alternative energy for years – a strong rebuke to critics who have said they would still go back to fossil fuels in the future.
Our world has tremendously suffered because of global warming and we can’t afford to make it even worse.
Check out the infographic below for more information about the countries that have taken the bold move. Bigger countries should also follow their footsteps. Those who have polluted more should do more.
