The affects on Climate Change are upon us. Weather as we know it, is only becoming more and more extreme. The rise in temperature globally, even though very incremental, creates detrimental affects that including the melting of polar caps, the rise of sea level, and major natural disasters. Scientists believe that what is happening is inevitable, because we have surpassed almost all of the world’s planetary thresholds. So Mr. Musk, what if we invented something that was able to prevent the increased temperature change on Earth?
I have two suggestions, both of which will either prevent the increase in global temperature change or slow it down. The first is a world wide cooling system that could be created in way that it uses only renewable energy. In addition, it would strategically be placed so that the wind can carry the cooler air and spread across the globe. Tests would have to be done in order to create a product that is actually successful and doesn’t have adverse side affects.
The second is synthetic molecules that replicate molecules that create the ozone layer, in order to repair the holes in o-zone layer. This would stop the sun’s rays from warming up the global temperature. The combination of these two products could potentially give human more time to create more solutions that can decrease Climate Change. Because we are truly running out of time to find a solution.
This idea isn’t intended to solve the problem of climate change and the many issues surrounding it, but its to buy us time to change our practices in to something more sustainable. It’ll give us time to make the transition from oil and natural gas to electric.
