    Texas sold most of their cattle to more Northern States! It’s happening everywhere! Wake up! Look at what the scientists are saying, because it’s their job for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week to research this! They fly around the world, and talk to people around the globe, about how things have changed! We need to realize what is happening! People are running from their countries! We must realize what is happening! Please, people of Earth, realize what we are doing, and how must switch into a more sustainable society! Then we can grow, and move into the solar system with the technologies of sustainable energy! Solar energy systems can help us to make crops grow anywhere!

    For the Maasai to turn to the rest of the world for help after such a long time, things must really be changing for the worse. They are a proud people.

    Global warming is a total lie. There are gas giants in our solar system filled with methane that are freezing cold. That’s because methane dosent heat up a planet or moon. Everything you have been told is a lie.

    We have to get off fossil fuels. It’s the only way out of this mess. You can buy a used Tesla for $20 grand. Please be part of the solution because our governments aren’t moving fast enough.

    The brutality of rape and human trafficking are direct results of climate change. Corporations, lobbyists, and those who maintain willful ignorance need criminal charges brought. If you’re not doing EVERYTHING possible to adapt, conserve, educate, support, and promote sustainability you’re complicit. That includes working to change how farmers in the industrialized world farm, limiting shipping routes, trucking routes, air routes and ENDING anything connected to fossil fuels.
    Plant based polymers vs plastics. Hazardous chemicals outlawed and properly disposed. Munitions checked. Plant fiber based fashion industry. Mandatory no take zones around 85 % -90% of the world’s industrialized coastlines.
    It’s great to have a sweet beautiful and exotic person smiling and explaining so people will watch. The time for being sweet about climate change is over.

    The weather is doing what the weather has always done.

      No, it isn’t. Also, weather is not the same thing as climate. And both are changing through human influence. But I’m sure you know better than science, because who needs facts?

      Who benefits from this, in your opinion? What’s the harm in wanting to take care of the planet that you live on? You’re allowed to have your own opinion, just make sure that it is actually yours.

    There is NO CLIMATE CRISIS. This is a power grab, period, by the political and economic ‘elites.’ “THEY” – those in global power- simply want more and more control over your life. Stop believing this propaganda.

    Thank you for your words, it is going on all over this world. I planted over 300 sunflower seeds and not one came up, i also planted in a small pan and the seeds developed but died before they grew up to a plant. They are spraying chemtrails and this is killing or land to grow plants. Our leaders all ready said we are over populated and they want to depopulate or world. I also have a nectarine tree and it bloomed Hundreds of blooms and bees all over the tree and the bees had no pollen on their Leggs and not a fruit did the tree produced. I also planted at least 600 seeds of corn and onlt 3 came up than died, I also planted 100 string beans and only 1 came up than died. Thanks and stay safe.

    I think we are going to all have to adapt. The worlds government’s will never unite to fight climate change and the ones that would there own people dont believe climate change is real. We will be better off changing infrastructure and letting those who wont sink into the ocean when the oceans rise. And thats what will happen and alot more.

    You can’t adapt to the destruction of everything your people have relied on for their way of life for generations

    “Adapt” is getting a lot of unfair use here

    There is no objective observational evidence that we are living in a global climate crisis.
    The UN’s IPCC AR6, chapter 12 “Climate Change Information for Regional Impact and for Risk Assessment”, section 12.5.2, table 12.12 confirms there is a lack of evidence or no signal that the following have changed:
    Air Pollution Weather (temperature inversions),
    Aridity,
    Avalanche (snow),
    Average precipitation,
    Average Wind Speed,
    Coastal Flood,
    Agricultural drought,
    Hydrological drought,
    Erosion of Coastlines,
    Fire Weather (hot and windy),
    Flooding From Heavy Rain (pluvial floods),
    Frost,
    Hail,
    Heavy Rain,
    Heavy Snowfall and Ice Storms,
    Landslides,
    Marine Heatwaves,
    Ocean Acidity,
    Radiation at the Earth’s Surface,
    River/Lake Floods,
    Sand and Dust Storms,
    Sea Level,
    Severe Wind Storms,
    Snow, Glacier, and Ice Sheets,
    Tropical Cyclones.

    我发现了一个事,我们生活要过得好,我们的思维就得,一直想着和感觉,一切都是自然,不管什么是发生,是好是坏,你必须告诉自己没事的,然后最重要一点就是,享受每一件事(enjoy), 就算当下是遇到不好的事,享受他。一切都会转好。这比冥想还要厉害,应为意思,专注就是力量(energy)
    我们都知道伤心时,很难去想开心,所以当下心情就享受那过程,把伤心转换成正面心情。很多事发生了都已成为过去,享受的事会增加,因为你的思维已经转换享受开心。

    Maasai people are adapting to climate change, while here in the United States everyone can’t be troubled to consider buying something other than a gas hog SUV or F150 let along driving an electric or plug-in electric car.

    How many satellites are launched and deorbited annually and how, if so, do decommisioned satellites burning up in earths atmosphere effect it? Who regulates and studies this?

    Powerful message 💚
    Change must happen but I feel governments and the population will prioritize those issues and change their perspectives on this matter when we face more problems and disasters…
