Climate Change

Climate change, referring to drastic changes in the earth’s weather or temperature, is a broad topic that affects all life on our planet. We are currently undergoing global warming, a climate change that has been directly caused by human influence, especially the burning of fossil fuels and global deforestation. Predicted global warming effects are already underway, heightening the frequency and intensity of regularly occurring natural disasters—such as hurricanes, droughts and heat waves, fires, and flooding—which have displaced many people and challenged quality of life everywhere. The solution to these catastrophes is within our grasp, but it requires all of us to pressure political and business leaders on a societal level to alter industrial behaviors on a scale that can halt our globe’s catastrophic trends. We’ve started gathering valuable information on this topic, but haven’t yet curated the findings.
