I fear for our future.
As a conservation educator and grassroots advocate I have been on the front lines of environmental issues all of my life. Every day I am challenged to get more and more involved. Climate change is no doubt the biggest threat humanity has ever faced. Can nearly 8 billion people come together to save our planet, our only home?
According to the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in 2018 our world needs to cut carbon emissions by 45 percent over the next 10 years. Sadly our world is not even close to reaching that target. Since our governments are so ineffective what can we do together to save the planet?
This morning I read the story of Greta Thunberg and how she has been successful in getting millions of people to listen to her about climate change. We need more people like Greta, especially young people and parents of young people to follow her example. I want to do more to make a difference how about you?
