CNN reported recently that the temperature reached 48 degrees in Spain and Portugal, into the 40’s in Europe. In my time it almost never reached 30 in London. They say it will soon regularly make it into the 50’s in the most populated country in the world, China. Not to mention weather reports for Japan and Korea.
Soon all places will be too hot for human beings. The US has removed itself from the Paris accord on Climate Change and started burning coal again. According to the president there, global warming is a hoax by China. The effects of global warming won’t peak for about 100 years after we stop emitting the gases. We really should act now! If we use social media for anything perhaps we should collectively express the desire to save the planet and avoid extinction. Apparently social media can have an impact. Facebook may have recently influenced the US election they say. Today we should use our democratic vote to act against climate change. Like all life on Earth we face extinction. We have a voice if we use it.
