Assalamualaikum, wr. wb.
I would like to thank to God and the audience who have given me the opportunity to stand on this stage in a few minutes. My goal here is to convey an important message related to environmental sustainability.
All of us know that Indonesia is a country that has a huge forest. The world relies on Indonesia in terms of protecting the sustainability of our beloved earth. Indonesia is the world’s lungs that will prevent the effects of global warming. Therefore, we as citizens of Indonesia should protect our nature as good as possible.
Basically, what are the effects of global warming for all of us? Global warming causes the snow in the top of the mountain melts so that the sea level rises. The storm kept coming. The floods and the landslides occurred in many places. Drought, disease, and ocean warming will further damage the earth and its inhabitants.
Until this moment, the threat of global warming will continue to increase and it is time of us to repair the damage that occurs in this system. The collaboration is absolutely needed for both developed and developing countries in order to prevent global warming. We have to do all this collectively so that the earth can be a comfortable place to stay and not leave the worries for our children and grandchildren in the future.
Explaining environmental problems like this is very important in the effort to block the effect of global warming. We need pioneering carbon emission reduction and gas resulting greenhouse effect, provide education to the public about the issue of climate change as well as a practical way what can be done to resolve it immediately.
Supposedly, every country charted how much carbon dioxide ( CO2 ) and greenhouse effects they cause and they scatter into the atmosphere. At the same way, they need to determine how large they should be greening the environment through reforestation of denuded forests, rural and inland areas. It can be done planting trees, stop deforestation, and illegal logging. It is carried out in order to neutralize the harmful gases are dispersed into the air. Once the gas exists in the atmosphere, it will remain there in a very long period of time so that it will withstand the heat of the atmosphere and emit the bottom part of it back to earth, so the earth becomes hotter.
Carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere of such a large amount would result in a rise in temperature of the earth ‘s surface, causing drought, climate change, the melting of glaciers in the Arctic, the melting of glaciers on mountain peaks, rising sea levels, floods, storms, and it’s not just going to mess up the natural balance in the earth’s climate, but also the ecological balance of the environment, causing landslides, earthquakes, volcanic eruption, rising sea temperatures, which in turn will reduce the animal population, plants, and so on, even some of them will be extinct.
Ladies and gentlemen..
To initiate an action, we can do it through ourselves and start it from now. We can reduce the use of air conditioners, and then plant a tree in our home garden. If we do it consistently, I believe we are able to restore the earth into a place that stay cool and comfortable. We not only provide a peaceful place to live for ourselves, but we are also able to provide valuable legacy to our children and grandchildren.
