Global warming is a serious hot-button issue today. There are a lot of people who think it’s real, and others who say it’s something that’s only made up to scare people and get them worked up about something that takes the focus away from real problems. However you fall on the spectrum of whether you believe in global warming or not, it’s important that you keep in touch with what’s happening in the world around you. That’s especially true with environmental issues, because there are so many of them that can affect you, even indirectly. Most people don’t think about that, but there are things on the planet that affect everyone.
If the food supply is tainted by chemicals, or if things don’t grow well because of extreme heat, cold, drought, or rain, you could be affected even if you don’t grow the food or work in any kind of food production. Because you eat the food, you could see the problems that come about from climate changes. Whether global warming is the culprit or not, the climate does seem to be changing. It may be a cycle that the planet goes through, or it could be something more. Records don’t really go back far enough to provide a clear sense of that information.
Each person will have to decide for himself whether global warming is real or whether it’s something that’s been fabricated. It can be hard to make that decision, though, because all of the information you need to make it isn’t readily accessible. In other words, until you know all the facts your decision about global warming may be tainted. The best that most people can do is to learn all they can and then do what they can to protect the planet. If people are doing damage, it may be able to be reversed.
