NASA states: “Ninety-seven percent of climate scientists agree that climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities, and most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position.” For more information see www.climate.nasa.gov.
Former Vice President Al Gore has said, “The warnings about global warming have been extremely clear for a long time. We are facing a global climate crisis. It is deepening. We are entering a period of consequences.”
It’s easy to claim science as fake news, or bury our heads in the sand, or even throw our hands up in despair bemoaning that’s there’s nothing that I can do. But one person can make a difference. Consider Greta Thunberg, now an 18 year-old young person from Sweden, who has rallied youth from around the world to demand that our political leaders be more proactive in dealing with the reality of climate change.
