In one sentence, what is climate change?
A terrible reality which we need to address immediately.
How does climate change affect your life?
Currently I don't see or observe any physical affects from climate change as the major effects - sea level rise, temperature rise, extreme weather patterns, crop health and yield, etc - are still a predicted future. However the realisation of our uncertain future on this planet, coming to terms with the changes I need to make, and trying to help other people come to these realisations are definitely things that affect me everyday.
What do you feel you can do about it?
In essence, make conscious, mindful and meaningful changes in my everyday actions and decisions.
Consume less. Reuse more. Learn and discuss climate solutions.
Do you feel there is more you could do? If so, what is stopping you from doing those things?
Personal change, like climate change, is a slow process - however, we need to change faster. The biggest barrier to personal change, in my mind, is the views held by society and the norms that surround that - it's hard to act in a way that is contrary to societies actions. By creating new positive social norms, everyone is more likely to undertake positive climate actions.
