“Education leads to awareness which fosters change. When you’re aware of the downfalls of humanity you realize the need to adjust, to redefine, and to reform. Ignorance is not always bliss when that naivety harbors destruction. ”
“By focusing on climate justice, we can create change in every aspect of life, touching all ecosystems. Climate justice speaks on many levels. It represents taking action on preserving Mother Earth, stabilizing the future of humanity, and securing equality within gender, race, the economy and socio-economic status, as well as between countries.”
“Inequality within climate change stems from socio-economic status, gender, minority groups and geographical location. We see these effects within air quality, rising sea levels, warmer climate, habitat destruction, and within the quality and availability of our water.”
“As the water crisis is not just a human issue, our demands on water sources such as lakes, rivers, and streams cause drastic harm to ecosystems. Overuse, increase of demand, pollution, poor management, lack of infrastructure, and changes in weather patterns due to global warming are all key factors that affect the availability of fresh water. According to World Wildlife, because of these stressors, by 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population may face water shortages, which will cause humanity and entire ecosystems to suffer. Some viable solutions are to implement desalination plants, harvest rainwater, restore our ecosystems, and as large amounts of waste water comes from agriculture, turn to contour farming. There are always solutions, and it is our choice if we continue to be a part of the problem.”
