Myth #1. Climate change is political
Climate change and the fact that our planet is warming up are the result of human influence, such as deforestation, the burning of fossil fuels from the Industrial Revolution in the 1850s, and other such activities.
While it’s true that climate change has become a politicized topic in the United States due to fossil dependency and renewable energy hesitancy, nothing about climate change is political.
In fact, as climate expert Katherine Hayhoe has explained, no matter if you’re a democrat or a republican, if you take your temperature, you won’t receive a different reading based on your political inclinations.
As we all know by now, the thermometer’s reading is based on the science recording your body’s temperature, and the same goes for our planet.
