Here is my summary of “The Point of No Return: Climate Change Nightmares Are Already Here.” by Eric Holthasu that ran in the Rolling Stone last summer. The article basically gives us an idea of the record historical climate changes since James Hansen, a climatologist at NASA and Columbia University, went public with the evidence of climate change back in 1988. The article sheds light on the thousands of Pakistani and Indian people that were killed during a heat wave in 2015. Also discussed is the rise in sea temperature which is putting certain marine life near extinction. The climate change phenomena has driven thousands of walrus in Alaska from their natural habitat to go ashore. Unnatural flooding and storm strength.
To be honest, I’ve been hearing about climate change more and more each year and some of the issues this article speaks about motivated me to do some research myself. But the truth of the matter, in my opinion, is that we are taking very slow steps, much too slow, towards a climate change solution. The big oil companies and others that pollute our atmosphere are more concerned about profit than the impact fossil fuels have on the climate. They need to understand about how fossil fuels add to the greenhouse gases that is contributing to climate change
