The most recent reports on climate change by United Nations states that the world has gotten 1.5 degree celsius or (2.7 degree fahrenheit) warmer above pre-industrial levels and global greenhouse emissions.
This means that we have as less as 12 years to act on it because efforts trying to save the world would count if there would be a world left to save.

There’s no doubt that humans are the major factor influencing climate (change my mind). If you don’t believe this, 97% of climate scientists do (if, that changes your mind).
The most significant fragment of the recorded history of humans which led to a drastic diversion in the course of climate change was the Industrial Revolution. While the revolution provided employment and products sustaining human life, it also tormented it.
Climate has changed drastically, since the inception of industries as it lead to abuse of resources, more pollution, and destruction of the ecosystem.
Human’s obstructive nature has defaced the factors affecting the climate like topography, altitude, temperature and more.
Burning fossil fuels and chopping down rainforests is fueling the fire that’s heating earth.
TLDR: If the world continues burning fossil fuels and emitting greenhouse gases at the current rate, average global temperature could rise by 4°C by 2100.
Consider that with “only” 2 degrees of warming, more than 99% of coral reefs will already be dead.https://t.co/e0Uh5cRVb3

By 2030 we have to cut CO2 emissions by 45% and cut it off by 100%, and now we have to use technology to remove CO2 that is already there in the atmosphere.
UN climate report warns of 'irreversible' damage by 2030 if there are not 'far-reaching' changes in society https://t.co/V8CFkeEeNd

Donald Trump called off United States’ participation from Paris Agreement; an accord formed to deal with climate change and greenhouse emissions because apparently, he doesn’t believe in man-made climate change. Don’t be like Trump.
Climate change is not a political issue up for debate, it's an impending catastrophe that can only be averted with immediate & unprecedented action. This @UN report proves that the world does not have time for climate change deniers in positions of power.https://t.co/xdOJ1cD3P7

Twitter has reacted, though Twitter reactions can only spread awareness not prevent global warming.

By scrapping the clean power plan and the Paris Climate Agreement, the #ToxicTrump administration has given up our status as a world leader on combating climate change. We simply can’t afford to be complacent.

The @UN’s scientific panel on climate change is warning of worldwide crisis as early as 2040, @CoralMDavenport reports, and that “avoiding the damage requires transforming the world economy at a speed and scale that has ‘no documented historic precedent.’” https://t.co/HuowiJEHha

It’s every human’s moral duty to contribute towards the prevention of global warming. You can do so by spreading awareness, using renewable energy, use energy-efficient appliances, “eat” the food you buy and dispose of garbage, lessen your use of commodities that emit carbon.
What’s more important than your life? The world that gave you life or the world that keeps you alive?
