My Take on Climate Change by City Tech Blogger Alexander Mcghie

Climate change for me has always been an ever-expanding and interesting topic. It is something that unfortunately some people don’t realize affects our everyday lives and can determine the conditions of the future generations of our species. This is a serious issue that demands more attention than is given, and only through awareness and education can we spread the message to those less convinced than the rest of us. It will take a massive collective effort from all nations and their people to make a noticeable dent in our impact on the climate through our mere existence, and I am proud to be a part of that effort. As of now, I’m sure that it has become common knowledge that the hottest years in recorded history occurred within the past couple of decades, that coastal cities all over the world  experienced more severe flooding, that seasonal storms have increased in intensity and that drought plagues parts of the world more commonly. Possible solutions to these problems are immensely complicated, but I believe that we have to start small and work out a way to our goals. Hopefully, we can see some real progress occur during our lifetime and leave the world in better condition than we entered it in.
