2019 was the hottest summer since records began. 2020 will be forever remembered as the year Covid 19 wreaked havoc…affecting economies globally…having a huge impact on many industries resulting in huge loss of employment…business closures at the highest rates ever seen.
Covid 19 has been devastating but as the graph shows above, the actions of humans has seen our planets temperature rising consistently. As a consequence, Climate change represents a bigger threat to our planet and to humanity than Covid 19… a frightening thought but the reality is, unless we take drastic action now, the next and future generations will be dealing with a crisis worse then Covid 19 on a regular basis.
A recent article written by Microsoft founder and Chairman Bill Gates spells out what is ahead unless we take action.
“If you want to understand the kind of damage that climate change will inflict, look at COVID-19 and spread the pain out over a much longer period of time. The loss of life and economic misery caused by this pandemic are on par with what will happen regularly if we do not eliminate the world’s carbon emissions.”
I’d urge everyone to read this article, share it and create their action plan, no matter whether it is for your household, business or individual personal plan, we all need to act now.
Unlike Covid 19, we do not need to wait for a vaccine, we need to take individual and collective responsibility to create a plan to reduce our carbon emissions. Please see the whole article on the link below.
