Perhaps our political leaders should take a look at some of the best educational documentaries on Netflix. That way they couldn’t claim ignorance when asked about their actions – and inaction – that jeopardize not only our future but our present as well. Despite all evidence to the contrary, there’s a vast number of deniers in every country that refuse to accept the simple truth – or should we say an inconvenient truth – that humans are the driving factor behind the global climate change that threatens every person on the planet. How much human suffering and misery will it take for them to open their eyes? The UN estimates that by 2050 the world may be faced with up to 150 million climate refugees. Right now, less than a million of Syrian refugees are causing havoc in Europe. Imagine what 150 million will do.
