My Take On Climate Change By City Tech Blogger Jay

As I contemplate life after graduation, and get ready to enter the next phase of my life, I realize more and more that global warming is becoming an ever-larger obstacle to overcome for billions of people around the globe. As I learn more about climate change, I realize just how much more I need to reevaluate all the plans that I’ve made for my future.

Now, buying a house suddenly doesn’t seem as simple as finding a place that looks nice. Now, I have to consider whether or not that land may even exist by the time I get to retirement age. Finding somewhere to live in an area of the world that will be minimally affected by climate changes is a challenge all on its own.

Having a flashy car with lots of horsepower doesn’t seem quite as appealing when considering your carbon footprint, and its contributions to global issues. Raising kids and establishing a legacy for yourself doesn’t seem quite as straightforward when you think about bringing them into a world with increasing climate extremes and natural disasters.

A part of me is still optimistic that we can turn things around and make changes that will lay a foundation for reversing the effects of climate change, but there’s also a small part of me that thinks it may already be too late. Hopefully, we as a people can put our best foot forward and make the changes that we need to that ensures a better tomorrow or possible tomorrow for future generations.
