Why are climate facts misleading…..

We often believe that if the drastic measures are not the truth, then perhaps there is not much to worry about or worse yet, that what we believe to be true about Climate Change is unreal completely.   I recently have taken many quizzes related to the climate crisis and gotten some answers wrong simply because I am always assuming the worst.  For instance, I thought the planet’s global temperature raised by 5 degrees rather than 1.69 degrees.   So what does this leave me thinking….

WE NEED TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT CLIMATE CHANGE MEANS!…AND WE DON’T!

The image above shows an overall scope of Climate Change at a 2 degree growth rate globally.  It is not merely warmth we are seeing–it is increased floods, species decreasing and increasing, food decline, economic decline, etc.   Many speak about climate change as something to be feared for the future and rightly so.  Yet, in addition, it is my intention to prove the Climate Change is something that is actually happening NOW.   See this in images below.

 

 

Why do we not relate to Hurricanes, Draughts, and Extreme Flooding as something that needs immediate attention?   It is these extreme events that cause extreme destruction personally and economically.

So, we talk plenty about problems.   Why not talk about solutions.   This inspiring video does just that.   Time to focus on what to do next.
