Cities flood, forests burn and glaciers melt – just like in the disaster movies. But unlike in the movies, the actions of real people only make the situation worse year after year. This is sad because, as climate activists say, “We don’t have a planet B”. In disaster movies, the world is always saved by a happy coincidence, but in everyday life, the chances of that happening are slim. In this article, we have collected and presented the most serious and visible climate change problems of recent years, which, if they don’t open people’s eyes, probably nothing will, until it is too late to do anything about it. If it isn’t already, of course.
