It is shocking to know that we dump a staggering about of waste into the air and still have people believing that we don’t effect the planet at all. It’s also a shame that developing countries take the selfish, profitable way out and just point fingers at the quicker developed countries who didn’t know any better prior. The fact that we are only 2 degrees away from extreme climate change is terrifying.

I find it interesting that a common theme in all of these articles is about how people don’t seem to want to believe that climate change exists. This article deals with the food supply currently being threatened due to the rising heat and changing seasons. Scary in the fact it was just posted last month and they are still having just as much problems getting the general populous to believe that our extravagant unnatural lifestyle has no effect on our planet. “There are going to be some real shocks to the system. Climate is the biggest challenge. Demand is not going away.”
