According to the UNFCCC, a climate change directly and indirectly attributes that rightly alters the atmosphere a lot, I have studied climate change for a long time, to understand it and know how it works, and what I discovered this week is that the main driver of climate change is the greenhouse effect, some gases in the earth's atmosphere act like a glass in a greenhouse that causes the sun's heat to be trapped, that is preventing it from leaking into space which causes global warming.
Now it is proven that the human generates many toxic emissions with their activities such as using the car, we waste a lot of water and we do not save much energy.
Climate change affects us all. The impact is huge, with predicted shortages of clean water, major changes in conditions for food production, and increased mortality rates due to floods, storms, droughts, and heat waves.
I am beginning to do my part to help the planet, I am separating the garbage, saving electricity, not leaving the appliances plugged in, using water well and I have begun to eat organic fruits and vegetables and to use products that can be reused.
We learned about clean energies and we learned that they are forms for us to get energy by not damaging a lot our surroundings.
They start using them at the end of the fifteenth century, there were very varied and practical renewable energy sources in Europe.
The countries that use clean energy are: - Islandia -Costa Rica -Noruega -Albania -Tajikistan.
We know clean energy started being used by Greenpeace company in Clean energy.
We also learned that they are used for emission gases and other contaminants that can affect climate change and can help on reducing sickness related to contamination.

During my studies I came to the conclusion that climate is already affecting our environment, and we have seen these changes through the continents and Oceans.
With my studies in Europe I learned the temperature has risen and it is getting hotter everyday. Along Europe I specially grew interest in the Atlantic Ocean, where I surprisingly saw that temperatures were also rising even in the cooler zones.
In Northern Europe, there is cold weather. It is characterized by low rainfall around 250 mm on average and a constant cold with maximums of 10 c throughout the year.
In southern Europe, the temperature is known to present long and hot summers and intense rain in winter. This temperature has constant humidity.
The waters of the Atlantic Ocean are warm and reach a measured temperature of 29° C while in areas close to the pole, the water is rather icy and has a temperature of less than 5° C.
