“Climate Change” is the hot topic (OK – depending where you live: One of the Hot-ter topics) of the moment. One on which there are particularly digressing opinions, thoughts/beliefs and statements of ‘fact’.
PART of the trouble dealing with the topic is the inability of both sides to correctly state what it is they are talking about (in some cases because they really don’t have any background or expertise on the subject – or a clue what they are arguing).
I’d like to suggest to both ‘sides’ that they no longer argue against ‘Climate Change’ but argue instead about what MAN is doing that worsens the effects on us and on our environments that we need, love and live in!
And what we all can, and governments and organisations SHOULD, do to limit the warming of our planet, which is only going to:
Increase sea levels, which is disastrous if you live near a waterline;
Make the oceans more acidic as concentrations of COtwo gas increase in our
mutually shared atmosphere.
Increase the number and severity of catastrophic weather events such as
drought, flood, cyclones, tornadoes, forest fires and mudslides/avalanches.
Melt glaciers resulting in vastly altered water supplies to those who depend
upon Spring melts for water.
Arguing about the cause of all these either as a whole or individually does NOT help the situation one iota.
Raising your awareness of just what the 7 billion humans are doing that adds to the rate of natural climate change and/or rate of pollution or damaging of our environment CAN!!!
