Climate change affects already disadvantaged people in the U.S. and beyond more than wealthier ones. We only have about a decade left to prevent potentially catastrophic climate change. We can do so, but we need “all hands on deck” before it is too late.
Poverty and climate change can seem overwhelming, but there are many things we can do at the local level to bring about change. For example, contact your state or federal lawmakers HERE and get involved today with action.
Many resources go into the production and sale of items such as clothes, food (especially beef), and cars. Use less! Buy second-hand items when you can! It will help everyone around you and it will help the world.
We know that giving up change does not help. Spending too much time on social media can be depressing. Instead, find a way to contact another person about issues that are important to you. And enjoy the great outdoors!
