So today I’m going to go on a bit of a tangent—so this is the warning if you’re not into protecting the environment, impacting climate change, or general tree hugging to back out now. In fact, if you don’t believe that we need to take a serious look in the mirror as a society and fix the mess we made; please do me a favor and pick up a real book.
You may be asking why is this important? It’s just a little weather isn’t it? So, what if our summers are warmer, there’s a few more hurricanes, maybe a couple less cuddly animals are roaming around…WRONG. Let me paint a picture for you.
Ok, so hopefully now that I have your attention…here are a few very SUPER small things you can do in your everyday life to try and combat some of this. Really, we need to make huge, monumental changes as a society; which will rely on our current government being a bit less incompetent. In the meantime, even these small things can have a bit of an impact.
Obviously, there’s a lot of larger, more important lifestyle changes you can make, but I know I can’t convince you overnight. If you need more reasons to start caring about the impact of climate change, clicknow. In the end though, it’s a matter of caring enough to make a change.
Just like one of my favorite childhood books, The Lorex, says,
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It's not.”
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
