Have you ever observed drastic climatic change all over the globe? Decades ago there were plenty of natural resources (natural gas, water, coal) available to man. They started utilizing them abruptly and with a slow and gradual increase of population, there come depletion in these resources they no longer support the need of a large number of the population so humans switch towards artificial production of these resources to fulfill their demands. With an increase in population, people need areas for living so they started cutting down trees to meet their needs so what happened next?
The average temperature of the earth rose to limit which created an alarming situation in a world named global warming. Why it is so? Because use of fossil fuels(oil, gas, coal) and deforestation led to high up the level of carbon dioxide in the air which is an obstacle for ozone to absorb all the gases dangerous to human life as well as heat up the earth to the unbearable limit.
So, as a result, our climate disturbs there come to an anonymous change in precipitation change in the level of the sea, flooding retreat of mountain glaciers, etc. and we have no option to ignore it. We used fossil fuels to improve our living standard which produces 21.3 billion tons of CO2, we cut down trees to construct a large number of buildings to live which is the second-largest cause of global warming besides fossil fuels combustion, we are running enormous industries but have forgotten about to pay for it. We just use everything; don’t care about what we’ll get in returns. Now we are going to pay for it suffering from psychological issues i.e psychoterratic syndrome commonly called eco-anxiety and ecological grief is increasing day by day.
Psychiatrist encounter a number of patients’ worries for their future. A number of suicides adding every day due to an increase in temperature as well as air pollution badly affect cognitive functioning. Serious long term medication and psychiatric drugs causing dehydration and heat stroke put to death. Higher temperature gives birth to individual and group violence. Global warming proves to be fatal in child development.
In 2015 to the onward temperature of Southern Pakistan especially Karachi reached to 49-degree centigrade and this heatstroke caused the death of 2000 people besides badly affected aquatic, aerobic lives, animals and the agricultural sector is also disturbed annually is major example of it. Hence the whole ecosystem has been disturbed world widely. So it the need of time to stand against this distortion stand up to bring ecosystem to its normal state there is a need to cut down the use of fossil fuels as much as possible we should think about our future generation they must not be deprived of a healthy living environment.
The development of our children shouldn’t get affected because of this ever-increasing disaster. Try to avoid unnecessary travels in a polluted environment. We need to Focus on reforestation and afforestation make environment pollution free and address the mental issues, let’s start group discussion to reach the solution of problems facing people around us and help out victims by transformational resilience and play your own role to save the globe.
