Climate change. It is something you are either deeply passionate about or something you just let be because it is a concept too big to comprehend.
I still see myself sitting at the school desk that one day I had no idea what was coming. It seemed like just another science but it would be one I would end up remembering for a long time after that day.
I had always felt as though the environment was something that we had to protect and the amount of CO2 emissions our race has caused assured but never had I truly understood what was happening.
Our teacher put on Dear Future Generation: Sorry By Prince Ea, a true work of art for which I will be truly grateful for, for the rest of my life.
It opened my eyes to reality. How can we be fighting for rights for various causes if we are not protecting the planet on which we all live? If we are not careful we might be gone and Earth will live on; no one’s rights to be fought for.
I would be lying if I would not say that it scares me to think about the consequences of what could happen if we do not halt the climate change, the seas rising and the corals dying. My children would not be able to see a world I took for granted when I was younger.
But it can be fixed and I am confident that it will work. We all just have to join forces and work together in shining some light on the subject and making sure people are aware of what is happening.
Needless to say, this is not my last post on the subject. I will be starting a series of posts to inform and speak out of what is happening and what can be done to halt the change so we do not go extinct. I hope you join me.
