These scientist warn that "untold human suffering" is in our future without huge shifts in the way we live. "Despite 40 years of major global negotiations, we have continued to conduct business as usual and have failed to address this crisis.”- William Ripple
Despite efforts to be more environmental increasing over time, we are still heading in the wrong direction rapidly.
Things like rising meat consumption, more air travel, destroying forest at a faster rate than ever before, and a global increase in carbon dioxide emissions are facing the entire population and Earth in the wrong direction as we head toward our inevitable demise.
Please, for the love of your children, your friend & family, continue to push through despite news that is negative such as this. Do all you can to help the environment and to support those who focus strong passion on preserving our home through volunteering, donating, using eco friendly services, reducing personal waste, saying no to single use plastic, carpooling, biking, reducing the amount of meat you consume, buying local, and any other methods you can find using the enormous amount of resources we have available.
Making these changes, even the more difficult ones, will inevitably help us get back on the right track. Perhaps then in our dying days we can still gaze upon the beauty of nature and know that we played a part in the health of this world that gives us so much. And we can be proud and at peace knowing that our children and their children won't have to suffer because we cared about the environment regardless of small or large conveniences we had to sacrifice.
