It is incredible how many people from normal to celebrities still deny climate change but fortunately, awareness is rising.
Some days ago I took the elevator in our building and it was cold outside. There was this couple in the elevator and I just dropped the comment that it is cold outside. Just some small talk. It was the moment when temperatures dropped to -45°C this year in Chicago. I lost the context but the girl said: „Oh everybody is shouting out when it gets a little cold. I grew up in Kanada and changes in the climate have always existed“. What I want to point out, is that it is not just Donald Trump denying climate change. Normal people also defend our behavior to be decoupled from the current climate change we obviously face and the destabilization of our ecosystem.
Global warming is proven now by scientists. I think we should not just worry about global warming but about cumulation of extreme climate situations and coupled effects.
