VIEDEO" WHY "DEGROWTH" Humans Rouge Species

Human civilization developed on Earth under certain climate conditions. Over the last 150 years, however, we have released so much carbon into the atmosphere from burning fossil fuels that the climate is changing — and not for the better. Rising sea levels mean devastating storm surges for low-lying farmlands and cities. Disappearing glaciers mean less water for vast areas of India, China, and the American West. Shifting climate zones mean many plants and animals will no longer survive where they've been — and may not be able to survive in new areas.
Climate change is real — the scientific debate on this has long been over. What remains is to build the political will to do something about it.
