Why is it Important to Learn About Climate Change in School?

Global warming is a prolonged warming of the Earth's climate system, which has been observed since the pre-industrial period (between 1850 and 1900). This is caused by human activity, which increases the level of greenhouse gases in the Earth's atmosphere, mainly through using fossil fuels. Greenhouse gases retain heat and the temperature on the planet rises. The term "global warming" is related to the term "climate change", although the latter refers to both man-made and natural warming and its effects. Most often, global warming is measured as an increase in the average global temperature of the Earth's surface. Thus, since the pre-industrial period, this figure has risen by about 1 degree Celsius and continues to grow by 0.2 degrees Celsius every decade.

How Climate Changes Affect Students’ Life?

Climate change is a long process of changing weather conditions over long periods (decades, hundreds, and millions of years). This is not only about global warming, but also about air pollution, anomalous phenomena such as snow in summer or population changes, or the extinction of certain species of animals. Due to rising ocean levels by 2050, some cities may go underwater. For example, in the spring of 2019, the President of Indonesia decided to move the capital from Jakarta, which could flood. And in Venice, seasonal rains caused one of the worst floods of the century. And while all those effects seem too big and global to affect any particular part of the human population, they will inevitably affect younger people, including students of today and tomorrow.

Prefab Homes: Ideas for Modern Living

While having a custom-designed home is generally seen by homebuyers as the golden standard in terms of buying an exquisite home with architecture, design, and decor elements, there are countless reasons why you should instead buy a prefab home. This is primarily because prefab homes allow you to just order the kit and get it delivered to your site. Once the order has been delivered, you can put the pieces with the assistance of a professional contractor or on your own. On the other hand, you are expected to pay about 15-35 percent more if you decide to opt for a custom home. If this is not all, you will have to wait for several months and even years in some cases to build a custom house from scratch. Today, prefab homes have come a long way from the old days of Sears Catalog Homes. This is simply because building a home in a factory environment enhances resource management while giving the fabricator a wonderful opportunity and control over the end product. No wonder, there has been a massive surge in the level of advancements in the segment of prefab homes. Undoubtedly, prefab homes are rightly touted as the wave of the future. Let us have a close look at some of the latest advancements in the world of prefab homes.
