Details

Climate Change seems far fetched. Giant numbers, big graphs and cataclysms so huge that the human brain simply cannot process them. Facts and figures alone will not sway people.

I will be tackling this problem from the point of view of individuals suffering the effects of climate change. As such I will be talking about homelessness, civil unrest, food shortages, climate refugees etc. My goal is to attach human faces to the calamity to inspire empathy and hopefully action.
