Most people know that climate change is real. But no one is talking about it. If it comes up in conversation the common thread is “It’s so overwhelming — what can I do?
We all know temperature records are continually being broken. Tipping points dates are moving up. BP and Shell Oil are planning on global temperatures rising as much as nine degrees Fahrenheit by 2050 — in only 30 years. These companies have billions of dollars invested in infrastructure which will be affected. They have researched this thoroughly because they need to plan for future protections of their infrastructure. These are the people who are controlling the conversation.
