I am passionate about the environment in my work and personal life. I know it's not too late yet so let's do what we can.

I have spent the last 2 years focusing on litigation having to do with a broad range of environmental concerns, such as air and water quality, climate change and land use, amongst others

Summers are getting hotter

Summers never used to be this hot, did they? You may have asked yourself that question and wondered whether in fact, you’re just getting more sensitive to the heat as you get older. But in fact, Summers are getting hotter and we’re all feeling the effects.

The US National Centers for Environmental Information sets ‘normal’ temperatures - currently based on 1981–2010 figures - by working out average daily maximum and minimum temperatures for each area.

Climate Central, a US-based climate change research organization, analysed past temperature records for June, July and August across the United States and compared the number of recorded days above normal maximum temperature in 1970 with the same records for 2017, and found a dramatic increase in temperature in both rural and urban locations.

The analysis showed a rise in above-average temperature days and a drop in below-average temperature days across most of the country. That suggests that the average itself is rising.

Of the 244 areas the study looked at, 92% experienced an increase in the number of above-normal temperature days, compared to 1970 figures. The biggest jumps were recorded in Texas, Louisiana and Florida.

How can we remedy this? Is it too late for us?

Heatwaves bring problems, especially in the developing world. Crops are ravaged, food spoils and workers become less productive. Heat can kill on its own and I seriously don't know if we can still remedy that.

Is there a way to bring back our ozone layer? I don't know but I hope so. Realistically speaking, it is probably impossible to bring it back. However, people in technology might be able to invent something that can protect us from the sun. With the technology now, nothing is impossible.

The weather is become more erratic and more intense that is why I have been doing my part on preserving the environment. So I don't understand when some people say that climate change is not a real problem.

That is right. Are their skins different from ours that they don't feel the climate changing? I hope everyone wakes up to reality and do something about the problem before it is too late.

I agree. Global climate change has already had observable effects everywhere. Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted and trees are flowering sooner. If we do not take action, things will only get worst.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) forecasts a temperature rise of 2.5 to 10 degrees Fahrenheit over the next century. Are you ready for that to happen?

Climate change and greenhouse effect is causing more heatwaves. People never took it seriously before and now we're paying the price for it. We can't really complain now, can we?

Hot summer temperatures are getting more and more of a boost, as the increase in atmospheric greenhouse gases is adding more heat to the atmosphere.

This year’s scorching summer events, like heat waves rolling through southern Europe and temperatures nearing 130 degrees Fahrenheit in Pakistan, are part of this broader trend.
