"Climate change" is a rather benign term for the global disaster that will, in a very short time, affect all life on this planet. Even "global warming" can be misunderstood. Some people, in cold climates, might think it good to have an extra few degrees of heat. Few seem to understand that it means myriad extreme consequences that we're already experiencing.
There's no time to argue; there's only time for serious action on everyone's part. All citizens should write to their representatives and demand legislation to lower carbon emissions from all sources. And we can all lower our personal carbon footprints.
Whether we're rich or poor, we're going to be seriously impacted by what is to come. But we can avert this disaster if we all act now.
