Myth #8. Climate change is a matter of the future
So people feel like we shouldn’t care about climate change, and leave this burden for future generations, but the truth is we don’t have that much time to waste. According to Earth.org, “Last year, the world’s leading climate scientists warned we only have 12 years to limit global warming to a maximum of 1.5C and avoid climate breakdown.”
Climate change is a serious matter and should be treated as such, since we’re already seeing its devastating effects, such as disease, global instability, food supplies, migration, conflict, and others.
Additionally, these effects will only become worse with time, if we don’t do something about it. This is the biggest crisis we ever have to say, and sadly, it is man-made. In fact, experts say that we’re the only generation that can do something about it, so we need to take the situation into our own hands.
