Climate Change: an opportunity, a thread, a challenge.


That is a very big question.
First, I know that maybe it is unusual, but I think about climate change as one of the biggest opportunity we have to improve our societies for the better, because of the challenges we must face in order to thrive and the enormity of what can we lose if we give up this battle. This is maybe the main action call we need to answer soon, and the actions and decisions we need to make can actually improve our world not only about climate but also about health, of course, gender and social inequality.

Second, I am very worried about climate change. Since I realized what is happening I am trying to involve family and friends about this important issue, but it is a hard mission. There is so much denial about the subject that it is difficult make people see the real thing when they do not want to.
Above all, I consider climate change as a crisis of the way we act in the world. In a world where people sometimes think of Nature as a disposal thing, as we are the boss of Nature, this is the way Nature itself it is telling us we are not the boss. We are a part of a much bigger system that is interconnected, and that system can thrive and prosper only when all the parts involved can thrive.
Climate change is a challenge, and I want to do my part.
