The Rising Seas by City-Tech blogger Branden Harris

After reading an article I found on Climate Central my perspective has drastically shifted. One look at the title: “Rising Seas Threaten Land Home to Half a Billion” and I felt connected to the article. I, like the rest of us, am a human being and planet Earth is my home; our home. I believe that if something is threatening the safety of our home we must unify and cancel that threat. High levels of carbon emissions can cause 4°C of warming which is not good at all. This can cause the sea level to rise and submerge 470-760 million people with unstoppable sea level rise over the centuries to come. We can reduce the amount of carbon emission by switching to cleaner methods of living, but that can only work when more people realize how severe this issue is. More people need to be aware of what’s going on with our planet and we all have to think of the future ahead. I hope to have children and grandchildren someday and I’d like to die knowing that their future is safe and guaranteed.
