Forever Chemicals, made by humans are now threatening their very own existence – The deadly PFAS

When you wash your cosmetics with fresh water, it actually goes through your sink via drainage system and gets mixed into the soil, oceans, and other water bodies, but these chemicals never go through any cleaning or filtration process before they are mixed in rivers or soil. And later, these chemicals boomerang, as we consume these hazardous chemicals as part of our daily drinking water and eatables. This is a serious threat, and the problem is — we still don’t know about it.

They say that diamonds are forever, they say some friendships are forever. But unlike diamonds, friendships, and these emotional bonds, there are some chemical bonds which are forever as well, and they are highly dangerous. They are cancerous, they can reduce our responses to vaccines, limit our growth, increase the level of cholesterol in our bodies, and can put us at a risk of heart diseases. In short, these chemicals can shorten our life span, and ironically these chemicals are called Forever chemicals.

Forever Chemicals are raining on us and further contributing towards the climate disaster. As part of the evaporation process, these harmful chemicals are being cycled through environment and effecting each and every inch of space on earth. Along with this carbon emission danger, this another carbon-fluorine variant has added more to our struggle for fighting against the climate change.

Greenhouse gasses are trapping heat and making this planet warmer, And the only major source that can significantly help on an immediate basis are Governments. If you don’t elect a right government today, your future generations may loose the reason to live a happy life.

“Carbon” is shorthand for greenhouse gas emissions, which includes CO2, methane, nitrous oxide and other man made gases. And These gases are released by many different types of activities – not just by burning fossil fuels, like farming, deforestation and even some industrial processes contributes to green house gas emissions. On a larger scale government plays important roles in policy making and sanctions, and tweaking the approach may can change everything.

On policy levels there are certain expectations that we as conscious citizens should have with governments. Please understand why this is so important, Globally, greenhouse gas emissions have grown by 50% from 1990 to date.

THE MINDSET to have as an Individual for fighting Climate Change- PART 2

Turn off your room air conditioning and water heater if you aren’t using it, as just by saving on this electricity waste we can save thousands of lives every year.

This episode is the part second of the previous episode but you don’t need to necessarily listen to part 1 for catching up on this. This episode has its own independent pointers that will help us as individuals to understand the possible ways in which we can reduce our carbon footprint. The overall idea is to help derive a mindset — so that the reduction happens by default and through our habits.

Almost everything in this world runs on the chain of demand and supply. The more you will demand, the more it will be produced. So the easiest way to minimise anything which is adversely affecting us is to reduce its demand.

In this episode of Conscious Citizens we will learn about four things that will help us fight the climate emergency:

  1. The Habit of Recycling
  2. Home Energy Usage
  3. Shopping Habits
  4. Exercising your Rights

Climate change is a complex problem in need and it demands a unified global response, but every individual effort towards building a safer future is valuable. And By making changes to our individual lifestyles based on environmental concern, we can help to influence the attitudes and behaviours of people around us in relation to addressing the climate crisis.
