Temperatures are rising, and the arctic is melting… and we know this with certainty!
With global warming comes major changes and it is up to us to make the change. And yes, we SHOULD care about the health of our planet Earth, because it’s our home. Our only home.

Do you know that the things we care most about - our loved ones, careers, material things like our home, cars and precious possessions, living a purposeful and successful life - are the most at risk as our world gets warmer?
According to the Climate Reality Project, as the earth heats up, people across the globe are experiencing more intense rainstorms, severe droughts, powerful tropical cyclones, and extreme heat waves.
Rising sea levels are flooding coastal areas, destroying homes, precious natural spaces and quite literally swallowing entire islands. Yes, some islands that once existed, are now under water. It’s happening and it will keep happening if we don’t act now.
Also, some populations of animals have started to die out. The most vulnerable among us, children, the elderly, and the poor are in danger from increasing heat stress and air pollution.

And if we don’t act, it will all get worse.
It’s time we start caring. It’s time we stand up to fight for the future of our planet.
Another amazing thing about humans is if we care enough about something, we stop at nothing to make a difference.
Let’s make it work. We can make it work. Happy World Environment Day!
