Why do i care about climate change?





How I found my why.



There is a quote by Mark Twain that I really like. He said that the two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.





It took me a long time to find my why. But thankfully, I did find it.


One 20th November 2019, I attended one of the 24 Hours of Reality events, the THINK Climate event at IBM London. In two hours, a small group of people, including one of the Climate Reality Leaders, Jeremy Waite, broke down an incredibly complex topic into 6 powerful talks. I have learnt about the seriousness of the climate crisis, the tools we already have (!) to fight it, and the small things each of us could do to help make a difference.


These talks resonated with me on the level I have never experienced before. I have found passion and beauty in something SO urgent, yet so often ignored and denied.


I have found my why.





The planet is warming. We know this with certainty.


As Earth heats up, people all over the world are experiencing extreme weather patterns; intense rainstorms, extreme heat waves, powerful hurricanes, sever droughts, bushfires, and melting glaciers. All of these events are causing sea level rising and coastal areas flooding, destroying homes, and disrupting vital ecosystems on our planet.


Climate change is happening right now and it is happening very quickly. As scary as the climate crisis is, there is one good thing about it. It is bringing together communities all around the world. It makes us bond. It makes us care. It makes us fight for the future of our planet.


We have the power to solve the climate crisis.


Each of us can make small (or large) adjustments to our lifestyles and contribute to a global change.


Every small step counts. Every act we take counts. Everything counts.


We can still fix this. We can do this for our ourselves, for our loved ones, and for our future on this beautiful planet.


Be part of the change and start making the world better today.
