Pope Francis S.J. discussed an ongoing global disaster, andour responsibility, as residents of this planet, to protect our “common home.”Climate change, a drastic change in Earth’s global temperature due to theincrease of greenhouse gases, has been a worldwide problem ever sinceindustrialization occurred. Industrialization has severely harmed theenvironment, the rise in Earth’s sea level, hurricanes, typhoons, anddeforestation. All these natural disasters have contributed to thedeterioration of the social, economic and political aspects.
However, the mostgroundbreaking and consequential aspect is the economic damage. Climate changehas a tremendous effect since it does not only demolish the rural, agriculturalbusinesses but also financially drains the urban ones. After the increase inaverage global temperature, the ice glaciers gradually break off and fall intothe ocean. Displacing water, the ice causes the sea levels to rise, and this leadsto extensive damage. Even if the ocean’s water level rises no more than asingle meter, flooding will occur.
It can also result from the rise in globalaverage precipitation, where it is known that higher temperatures have a directproportion to the amount of moisture in the atmosphere. Therefore, the increasein temperature leads to the rise in precipitation causing floods. The floodshave obliterated the agricultural businesses in rural areas, especially. Theyhave created lethal damage to the soil, where debris, like litter, is beingdeposited on top of the soil. Floods also cause the soil to erode or wash away,depleting the plants and stopping them from further growth. Additionally,floods abundantly impact the nutrients in the soil, ruining and depleting themas well. Lacking these nutrients will result in the soil becoming infertile.
Due to the floods’ aftermath, the farmers suffer a great loss of soil,nutrients, and arable land. This leads to the decrease in production of cropsand agriculture, thus strongly deteriorating the farmers’ economic, andfinancial statements. An increasein average global temperature contributes to hurricanes’ intensity as well.
Therefore, hurricanes are more likely to occur in areas of the world wheretemperatures are higher. After warm air with water vapor from the water surfacerise, cooler air replaces it. Then, the process accumulates formingthunderstorms, with winds coming from every direction.
This is when hurricanesstart forming. Over time, these winds will accumulate, becoming more powerful.When the winds are at its strongest, hurricanes are apparent, and this is whenthey are lethal to the environment. Hurricanes dreadfully affect bigconglomerates, local businesses, and familial homes by weakening their economicstatuses. The sheer force of hurricanes’ winds destroys homes, buildings, and evencars.
This natural disaster could distort or ruin building essentials when theextreme winds pressure different sides of a place. For instance, doors could beblown off by the wind when the hurricane hits them, and the same goes forwindows or roof tiles. This outbreak could affect big industries and theirmachinery where everything gets torn apart, causing a massive deal of economicloss. Enterprises need to repair the damage done by the hurricane, likeextracting debris, repairing constructional harm, and restoring the electricityfor the company to operate. These setbacks would create a ripple effect, wherethey not only affect the damaged areas, but they slow down the production andefficiency of the whole process as well, like distribution or manufacturing.
Since the companies’ economy will be hurt, the employees’ wages are likely todecrease, decelerating their financial stability. Not only does it hurt theenvironment, but climate change also vigorously harms the economy. People endup losing their jobs, companies’ businesses will reduce the income and knockdown their financial states
