30 Years Have Gone by and We Still Haven’t Tackled Climate Change

_On June 23, 1988, NASA climate scientist James Hansen told the US Senate it was time to acknowledge that climate change was happening and take action to limit its effects._.png

30 years have passed and as a country we have done nothing to mitigate the effects of human activity on the environment. Climate change is real. #ThisIsZeroHour and we need to take steps to reduce our impact on the environment. This includes pushing our elected officials to:
 
We won’t have a future for our future generations at the rate we’re going. We will say goodbye to destination islands, our coastal cities (Florida will be first to go, followed by other cities at low sea levels), our land and ocean animals and ecosystems around the world will fall victim to humans’ activities and lose their homes and their food… They won’t have a quality of life because so much of our planet will be lost to the effects of climate change and global warming.
 
I know some of my friends don’t care, but it’s time to start. Y’all want children or your family/friends have or plan to have children, and they will suffer economically. We each have our parts to play. Measure your carbon footprint now and see what steps you can take to reduce that and take better care of the planet.
