Today, I will write about how bad climate change really is.
I am convinced that nobody really cares for the planet, when talking about climate change.
If anyone is truly concerned about climate change, is either because they worry about their own future, or they worry about the future of humanity.
The Earth is not something people think about.
And I dare to say, rightfully so.
Our Earth has gone through many, many, many environmental changes and she always survived.
I mean, what do we think it’s going to happen?
Is the planet going to explode?
That’s as bad as it could get, yet it won’t.
One day, yes.
But not now.
Yes, the climate is changing, the planet is getting warmer and many species of animals are going extinct because of that. Animals are not only dying because of climate change but mostly due to human trash that keeps doing shitty things.
Will most cities be underwater by the end of this century? Perhaps.
Will elephants go extinct by the year 2045? Perhaps. If they do go extinct, it will happen in the wild, not in sanctuaries.
Will immigration become an even bigger problem due to environmental changes? It is already happening and it will get worse.
So, yes, climate change is really bad and we should do something about it, but the planet will live either way. She will get hot and one day she will get cold again. Perhaps, we don’t really know.
I do believe humans are partially responsible for climate change. It’s quite obvious that with our lifestyle choices, we aren’t really contributing to a greener society.
I do believe that scientists are correct about climate change and I do trust science (at least on certain things). I doubt that 97% of scientists would be paid to lie about something so obvious.
I look through the window in August and February, and I see that the seasons are different. I feel the effects of climate change in my country and on my backyard. I don’t need to search for facts and studies, although that helps.
But I don’t believe two things:
- That famous environmentalists really care about climate change that much.
If they would, they would actually do big things. But money is still a priority and most do not even mention the leading cause of climate change (when talking about the human made half), which is animal agriculture. As much as I love Elon Musk and I do believe he cares for the future of our planet and humans, I am still waiting for him to go vegan. I’m looking at you too DiCaprio; you know damn well you are a fake environmentalist.
- That climate change is entirely man made.
We know that the Earth has gone through many changes since her birth. She has been cold, hot, she gave birth and she was attacked (the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs). She is a woman; she went through phases when she was bleeding for thousands and thousands of years, yet she still managed to get through shit and birth everything that you see today.
Yes, humans have polluted her and managed to worsen the effects of climate change, but climate change was always going to happen. That does absolutely in no way mean that climate change is not man made, but it is not entirely caused by humans. Climate change was already here, it was us who fucked it up even more.
The most important thing to remember here is to not stop fighting for her now. Don’t give up and think that because it is not entirely man made, we can just stop and she will be well.
We can still lessen the effects that will occur due to global warming.
We can still save a huge part of species that would go extinct other way.
We still need to go plant based.
We still need to start driving electric cars or no cars at all.
We still need to recycle and use a lot less plastic.
We still need to go solar.
We still need to do a lot of things that matter.
The fact that the Earth has always gone through climate change, is not a reason to give up, it is a reason to thrive and fight even more!
We can do our part as humanity. We can actually take responsibility for once.
If you are interested in how to go vegan, make sure you read my post, where I share with you my favorite tips for transitioning to a more compassionate lifestyle. As many of you already know, we can fight climate change with a whole plant based diet.
