Our governments currently spend about $420 billion per year supporting fossil fuels. And every time we make excuses for why we need these fossil fuel subsidies, we’re turning the planet into a horrible place to live. Man-made climate change will cause more frequent and more intense fires, floods, storms, hurricanes, droughts and heatwaves – to the point where some of them will be happening in the same place at the same time. And even if you’re lucky enough to avoid all that, then you might fall victim to the diseases that are more likely to spread, or perhaps become one of the 7 million who are already killed each year from air pollution.
The choice is yours, but the answer is something we’ll all have to deal with – your descendants included.
