This is the most important article I will probably ever write.
Everyone has a made-up opinion about Climate Change and are very hard to tell other wise. Let’s break down that wall.
What will happen to our Climate?
No one can predict the future… unless you’r a good weatherman. Then you can?
Yes it is true, that no one can 100% predict the future, but we can use the past to map-out what we expect to happen next. And the picture is not bright. More Floods, droughts and general out-of-bound weather that will destroy homes, cause heat stroke burning Woods and Jungles. Out of control fire the list just keeps on going . But what do I know? lets have a look:
How to verify the Facts/Opinions
There are many ways to figure out the facts and being objective is the best most can strive to be. Now here is a 15 point list of fallacies and the last one is the one 99% of people that are ,In my opinion , at risk of false news; if they don’t know about it, at least.
Let’s Work through some Examples
If it is true,Why is no one talking about it?
Talking about the end, of the comfortable world, is not something you discuss easily at a BBQ,Braai or any other social event. Unless it is starting you in the face… which somehow many are simply seeing as a distant non-important topic. Best discussed by the Professionals. And those whom simply deny Climate change are hell bent over to stay in their bubble.
Don’t we all choose comfort over pain? unless the lion is standing in the door some will simply not believe you. Like really, “a LiON in tHE DoOR”? who would believe you after words? This is also part of the anxiety some-feel as it is not a very Popular topic. But soon it will be all we can talk about for decades to come.
The earth is in a warming period.
Well, yes… well NO?
The Sun has a warming and cooling period of 11 years. The likes that say it is warming are, probably, stuck in 2012. And soon yes we will have some more heat due to this but this is normal and does not explain the trend of heat/Natural disasters/Cold weather other than greenhouse gasses.
Most of the Green house gasses comes from live stock
Well yes it does, but does it? So farm animals eat plants and plants use CO2 so it is actually a closed of loop. Plant’s use the sun to store the energy and live stock eats it and uses it. this is simply not the issue. Also there are living bacteria’s that consume methane.
Science is not out yet
This should interest you. 5 Big Findings 2021 IPCC Climate report
The average human as a team can stop climate change within the house hold
No, you can’t. The things you use in everyday life cannot at the scale of industry, compete at all. The only way out is to vote with your wallet and be mindful of the things you buy.
I’m to small to matter in the bigger scheme of our planet
We’ll yes you are. But together we are strong and by participating in knowledge
of what is the biggest drivers of climate change, while avoiding that what hurts our planet, you can make a difference on your net emissions of greenhouse
gasses.SOME FOOD FOR TOUGHT
Your vote and direct action into whom you shop with and support can have a big effect on the choices made by big corporations. If they see products labeled as sustainable, net-zero-carbon make more money or simply sells better; They will follow those breadcrumbs and optimise all accordingly.
Sadly the majority of corporations do not have a heart and will only listen to money. Choose wisely and then as a silent movement of independent people buying from sustainable sources we will prevail.[We have to]
There is no political will to stop Climate change.
Using Politics as a yard-stick, on climate change, is like using the knowledge of a fifth-grader to build a Space-Station. It does not go very well and all both care about is how high they can go.
Someone else, a smart guy, will figure it out and I’m to dumb to figure it out
But that does not mean you will never be able to help out. Start small read up on the area’s you do understand partake in events [2021-where-a-mask]. And when the others start to run next to you , the euphoria will well be worth it. As a Global movement of Climate-change-behind-the-scenes-preventers… Or whatever. We will simply have to do our part and see to it that industry follow suite.
