As a young person, I can't help but think how the generations that came before me have ruined my future.
Not only am I part of the generation that is going to be worse off than my parents, but I am also part of the generation who are being forced out of Europe against our will. On top of all of this, at this rate I am not going to have a home left to raise my own children.
The government wonder why young people are disenfranchised with the system... Hello? Isn't it obvious! You aren't prioritising our future!
So mr/mrs politician - Make Climate Change a priority!!!
Global temperature spikes cause more CO2 and Methane to be pumped into the atmosphere because it begins to release the CO2 that has been sequestered for hundreds of years in polar ice caps, which in turn begins to heat the planet up even more. Another scary thing is that the polar ice acts as a mirror, reflecting sunlight back into space, when those are melted and gone, the darker ground beneath will begin to heat up causing temperatures to rise even more. Wildfires will become more common releasing the CO2 that is stored in plant material. Eventually the Earth will begin to heat up by itself creating a sort of “snow-ball” effect which will severely alter Earths environments. Due to this , it is very important that we curb global warming before we reach the point of no return.
