Climate change is becoming a major issue in the world today. Sri Lanka is a vulnerable island of its effects on the globe because the country is an island, hence is in a verge of getting drowned in the deep blue sea. It’s a proven fact that most of the causes of climate change are due to human activities that are harmful to the environment. This is because of the lack of the awareness among the people.
