I heard a friend talking about the weatherlast month. That's right, in England.
I silently pondered this statement, but then I wasn't quite sure what to say. Indeed, this wasjust before the UK setall-time high temperature recordslast month. Perhaps having experienced such extreme heat in a country completely unprepared, the woman may no longer feel the same way. More and more people are beginning to realize, perhaps a little reluctantly, that we face an increasingly serious problem. This summer is so small that 1976 is already in its prime, mother of all Morning Her Calls. recently.
But they simply worry that rivers are drying up, much of the green and pleasant land turns yellow or burns, and crops suffer. ,I fail.
The climate change crisis is not only right at our doorstep, it's coming out of our doorstep and onto our welcome mat. here. This means that action is inevitable. And remember: this is just the beginning.
Climate change and planetary devastation are among the most compelling problems of our time. It's a question that wraps up everything else. How we react to it will be the only thing our children will care about when they think of us when they are older. , why is almost all of our effort, time and money not spent in combating this growing crisis.
Why don't communities, nations and the world come together and try to solve this, as they did during the pandemic, for example? Or at least it doesn't make things worse.
Today, and in the face of the UK heat wave, what will it take to unleash action at scale? We are agents of potential change. why don't we try
Just by looking at the world headlines, you can see that this is not an isolated problem. California's Death Valley, usually the driest place in North America, experienced flash flooding after record rainfall (nearly a year's worth of rain in three hours). Closer to home in Europe, thousands of people are evacuating as uncontrolled wildfires 'rip apart southwestern France'.
The deadly heat wave is also putting pressure on an already strained power infrastructure as people try to keep their cool. British tourists are sweltering in Spain – as the government bans air-conditioning units from being set below 27 degrees to save electricity.The list goes on and on.
Enough with the list. I think you know what to doIt's too late to wait for the government to act properly: they're not going to We must take action to build resilience in the communities where we live and where we work. Adapt to and transformatively adapt to a worsening climate. .
What am I thinking? First of all, what is being done by the emerging and exciting network ofclimate emergency centers. A one-stop unshop for anyone wanting to start making the changes they want from scratch. The idea is that these centers provide a space to bring communities together to find solutions to environmental problems at the local level. Why not join us?
