What do you think is the greatest threat to humanity? Why do you feel this way? What do you think can be done to keep this threat from destroying society?
I consider climate change to be the greatest threat to humanity. According to research by the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the twenty warmest years on record have occurred over the past 22 years. This is attributed with the fact that air temperatures are often influenced by the oceanic temperatures. This ocean warming is harmful to the aquatic life that produces half of the oxygen we breathe as such even our own lives as man is not secured. Also pertinent to climate change is global warming which results through the emission of greenhouse gas. With global warming come the destruction of ozone layer which now exposes plants, animals and human beings to be exposed to the dangerous radiations that has resulted into the acquisition of skin cancer, sun burn among others.
As such, to keep the society from this threat of climate change, there must be strict adherence to the conservation of the environment through formulation of policies globally. Such include plantation of trees and restriction to the emission of greenhouse gases.
