Climate Change Article Comparison (Group 4)

by adigiaco on November 29, 2014 - 5:51pm

The article our group picked for the climate change project was “U.S. Climate Has Already Changed, Study Finds, Citing Heat and Floods”. This talked about how the climate has been changing very drastically throughout the years and is causing the heating of cities as well as more floods occurring along the coastlines. Since the climate is heating up, it is causing the melting of glaciers which unfortunately causes loss of habitat for artic animals as well as rising sea levels from all the water being added to the ocean. Rising sea levels and more floods on coastlines causes destruction of people homes and work places and could end in the coastline being washed up and causing it to disappear. The UKs group article was “Why rivals like PepsiCo, Coca Cola, Unilever and P&G are joining forces”. This talked about how rival companies are coming together to fight the problem of climate change. They encourage ecofriendly alternatives to use for refrigeration use. Both articles suggest more eco-friendly ways to reverse climate change and make it less harmful towards the earth. 

Comments

It is nice to see big companys like Pepsi and Coca Cola acknowledging climate change and supporting eco-friendly ways to combat the issue. Maybe more big businesses will join in as well in the near future.
