No matter how long ignore global warming you can’t deny the science behind this event.

As the Washington Post explains, a panel of the world’s foremost scientists warned in an exhaustive report on the escalating toll of climate change. The future warning by the scientists was” unchecked green house gas emissions will raise sea levels several feet, swallowing small island nations and overwhelming even the world’s wealthiest costal regions.”

If we plan on surviving what our climate has in store for the future, we need to act soon to change our carbon footprint. The Post states, “Drought, heat, hunger and disaster may force millions of people from their homes.” So global warming and climate change have a role on our food sources. Extreme drought makes it hard to farm, and keep vegetables and fruit growing is nearly impossible.

So the sooner we act, the longer we can put these dates on pause.
