Climate Changes and Global Warming – A Threat to Earth
While COVID-19 is a big concern and the whole world is dealing with its effects, what is even a bigger and more serious issue is global warming. We at Axton Global are striving to save the planet and reduce carbon dioxide emissions. For this reason, we have joined hands with the United Nations to combat global warming, which is disturbing the climate balance of our beautiful home, Earth.
Therefore, we invest in the UN projects and programs to achieve a safer, cleaner environment, and at the same time, looking for ways and methods to reduce the ever-rising global warming.

The emissions of carbon dioxide coming from industries, factories, power plants, and other burning furnaces or prototypes have led to the rise in global warming. We may not directly experience the impact of these emissions, but our future generations will not be safe. Thus, we need to take a step today.

In order to combat climate changes, Axton Global acquired a certificate for one hundred (100) tons of carbon dioxide. The money we have paid for these certificates will be invested in clean energy projects in developing countries.

A carbon offset is a reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases made in order to compensate for emissions made elsewhere. Offsets are measured in tonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalent (CO2). One tonne of carbon offset represents the reduction of one tonne of carbon dioxide or its equivalent in other greenhouse gases.

Carbon offsetting is a way for funding organizations who are working to lower or reduce carbon emissions for a better and cleaner environment.

Thus, we are working to reduce carbon footprint as much as we can to ensure climate neutrality.

We are becoming a carbon-neutral company by offsetting our carbon emissions and have signed Climate Neutral Now Pledge.

Let's pledge for a common cause to improve the life quality and environment of our planet and reduce carbon footprint. Besides, Axton Global supports other projects to reduce emissions.

Reasons for Climate Changes
Global warming is increasing steadily, as we talk. There are several reasons behind the climatic changes that the world is facing today.

The significant aspect is a rise in human-caused greenhouse gases (GHG), leading to health crises and, in some places, catastrophic humanitarian crises. The ongoing fight against climate change is a chance to transit to a low carbon life.
Global warming and resultant climate changes are due to gas emissions in the air caused by burning fossil fuels.

Scientists warned about its negative impacts and consequences when coal became more common, and people started using it for a variety of purposes.

The use of gasoline, kerosene, diesel, and natural gases made things even worse. The damage did not end here, as people started using petrochemicals (plastics, fertilizers, and pharmaceuticals).

The second biggest contributor to global warming is Black Carbon. The tiny particles of carbon remain in the air longer due to incomplete combustion. These particles are heat conductors and respond more rapidly. This reaction is hazardous and increases the temperature in the surrounding area.

The climatic changes are rapidly melting glaciers into water. Due to this, sea levels are rising. All this is impacting the marine life around the globe.
Global Warming– the Effects
As per the WHO, global warming will prove to be detrimental to the earth, and the consequences will be worse than the damages flood, tsunami, or any pandemic brings.

1. Climate change will change social life fabrics.

2. You will see its impact on health, clean air, sufficient food, access to clean drinking water, and safer homes.

3. It can take the lives of more than 250,000 humans before 2050. Diarrhea, heat stress, fatigue, malaria, and poor nutrition would be the leading causes of deaths worldwide.

4. You will see less crop growth because of a shortage of fertile land. Agricultural life and pharmaceuticals will also experience the adverse effects of this climatic change.

5. Countries with poor health services infrastructure will not be able to deal with such devastation.

6. Rising sea levels and changing weather will destroy homes, medical facilities and make the procurement of food and health services more difficult.

7. The ecosystem will shift or recycle itself as the world is facing global warming.

Join us Now

We can work together to reduce emission effects by improving and opting for emission-free transport, better food, and energy use to ensure good health. The significant step, of course, remains reducing air pollution in whichever way possible by avoiding smoke-emitting vehicles in all aspects.

You can join us in this cause to combat global warming for a better future for your generations. Let's act together.

How to control Climate Changes?
Climate change is the most dangerous problem we all need to resolve. The good part is that the matter is still in our hands; we just need to be proactive and adopt countermeasures, which can eventually save us all from the effects of global warming.

Reduce fossil fuels

It may look challenging, but it's a practical way to reduce carbon emissions produced by coal, oil, kerosene, and natural gas. Although there are no alternatives to fossil fuels, you can opt for carbon-emission-free transportation options and use machines working on electricity rather than fossil fuel.

A cheaper solution for carbon-neutral biofuels is in its evolution stages. Every bit counts. So look for alternatives, go for plant-based plastics, wind power, and biodiesel, etc.

Avoid extra commuting

Bad or unnecessarily longer routes contribute to excessive use of fuels and thus causing a rise in emissions.

All these infrastructures take a lot of cement and mortar, both major contributors to greenhouse gas emission. In the U.S. alone, the cement industry contributed 50 million metric tons of carbon dioxide to our atmosphere.

Relocate near Workplace

Moving close to your workplace will have a dramatic impact on reducing the emission of greenhouse gas. Or you may opt for public or mass transport systems. If your workplace is near your residence, you can walk or use a cycle; both these methods just need human energy.

All else, you can opt to work from home as much as possible during a week.

Reduce Air Travel frequency

Reduce your air traveling frequency, as this is the fastest source of greenhouse gas emission. Reduce these travels whenever possible.

Air flights are also a contributor to global pollution as they rely on kerosene for fuel. Trains can replace this mode of transport for short distances. Bullet trains are a good option for long travel where possible.

Go Green – Stop Axing Trees

Forests are the source of a healthy and prosperous life. Avoid axing forests. Don't get surprised to see that timber alone contributes to 20% (i.e., 1.5 billion metric tons) of carbon in our atmosphere every year. It's another human-made greenhouse gas emission.

Cutting trees may be an inevitable act; nonetheless, we can grow the same number of trees to offset this imbalance. It's a better forest management plan.
You should go for recycled paper and used furniture for using wood in any form. Trees are our best hope for controlling climate change, though short-term it may be.
Climate Change – Act Now
However, the window of opportunity for transitioning the world economy to a low-carbon path that may avoid the worst impacts of climate change is rapidly closing.

It's not an individual or solo act; we can't fight climate change alone. We need your help in this battle to ensure a safer and better environment.
We all can contribute by adopting environmentally-friendly practices and playing our part in saving our home. You need to act now as we are hardly 10 years away from facing the effects of climate changes.

Reduce shower time, drive less frequently, and turn off all unnecessary lights. All this will minimize energy consumption leading to lesser carbon emission. Make it a habit to use recyclable things. Use bicycles for short to medium distances. Also, go for healthier, plant-based meals.
Paris Agreement – A landmark
The Paris Agreement between 196 countries was signed on Dec 12, 2015, with an aim to reduce the impact of global warming below 2 degrees Celsius. A preferred target is 1.5 degrees Celsius to offset the global warming impact.
The agreement became effective the next year on Nov 4, 2016.

Implementation

It's a 5-year plan to change the economic and social conditions in these countries, supported by the best scientific analysis. In 2020, the participating countries submitted their plans, i.e., nationally determined contributions (NDCs). NDCs elaborated the actions they pledged to take for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Thoughtful Strategies

The Paris Agreement offers a methodical framework to countries for submitting their plans to achieve low greenhouse gas emission strategies.

Achievements

The best thing Paris Agreement has achieved so far since its first meeting is more countries are accessing low-carbon solutions. Zero-carbon methods are making their way into economic zones and sectors. The trend is more noticeable in power and transporting world.

The experts believe zero-carbon solutions will be effective to an extent covering three-quarters of global emissions by 2030.

This agreement is a landmark for bringing all countries together to face the challenge and fight global warming.
How other Companies and You can help
You can play your part and help in this fight by taking steps and spreading awareness about the hazards of global warming, one or the other way.

• Arrange a walk and discuss the effects of climate changes
• Walk, cycle, or take transit instead of driving.
• Limit your fossil fuel consumption.
• Say no to Food wastage; donate excess food to more deserving people having little or no food at all.
• Use energy-efficient appliances at your offices and homes.

The easiest way you may find is to cut down or buy less stuff, goods that contribute to environmental pollution. This may including switching to an E-Bike from automobiles, opting for a reusable grocery bag, cutting down further on fossil fuels in all possible ways.

You can also help us by signing a pledge to this noble cause.
Conclusion
Climate changes are leading to global warming, and sadly, the emission of human-made greenhouse gases is making it a potential threat to the planet. The Paris Agreement is a milestone and a good effort by 196 countries to make the world realize the adverse effects of climate change.

We have to play our role as well, and we can become a part of this cause by spreading the word around. No matter how small the effort may be, it counts nonetheless. Let's work together to minimize the damage and live a better, healthy, and mindful life.
