You can put your head in the sand, and wait
till the changes that will come anyway will hit
you. Or you can try to ease the change: We have
more wealth and technology available than any
previous generation in history, and we can use
it to reduce the (already massive) effects of
climate change as much as possible. What we do
now will change the lifes of the coming
generations massively -
including that of your children!
