The increase in harsh weather phenomena like hurricanes, soaring temperature during summers, ever present smog in the cities and rising sea levels are ominous symptoms of a disease that can change all life as we know it. The threat posed by it is real, global and dangerous. But climate change is something most of us simply wish to ignore. I know I do. I just wish it weren’t real.
