The planet’s climate is changing with the passage of time, with considerable fluctuation in global average temperature. Climate change not affecting our economy and growth just, but it also deteriorates the health of the population. As we know that children’s immune system is not well developed as compare to adult ones and, they are vulnerable and expose to any disease, similarly children immune system cannot resist the adverse effect of the gigantic disaster called climate change. Like other diseases, climate change is also a big problem for children particularly. As per observation, advancement in the field of health and medicine made it possible to control any medicaldisease, but problems resulting due to climate change cannot be handle very fast and easily.
A recent survey reveals that children are estimated to bear 88% of the burden of diseases due to climate change globally. The uncontrolled exposure to extreme environmental conditions, incompletedevelopment of regulatory and immune systems, and immature physiology and metabolism favor and increase children‘s health vulnerability risk. As we know that climate temperature and heat waves are increasing yearly. As compared to adults and elders,children’s metabolism and their body regulatory systems are still developing so children are unable to regulate their body temperature. Their regulatory systems are not so stable to withstand extreme temperatures (cold, hot) Kids are just kids. Similarly,children are facing serve problems due to the maintenance of external (environmental) and internal (body) temperature.
Climate change minimizing our resources, creating food and water insecurity and harms the quality of life.
climate change and its consequences can never be measure but can only be very approximate. Need solid and kinetic moves to control this gigantic issue.
