Well presented article starting with a question for all of us – Is Climate Change a Hoax? The Facts and stats presented through out the article reminds us all that there is no Planet B.
I am a staunch believer that Climate Change has sped up because of humans and we MUST take action before it’s too late. However, I took this course to know why a few % of people still think that it’s a hoax.
If you’re a disbeliever and reading this, you must read the flipbook article.
The course presents valid facts and stats. I am glad to have taken this course!
An interesting article with lots of useful information. There is more need than ever to spread awareness and remove doubts of climate change deniers because everyone needs to take action to ensure a safer future. If nothing else the relationship between human health and climate change described by this article should convince people to take action.
It’s very true how much the topic of climate change has been studied extensively and politicised and as much as believers and deniers have their own standpoint, we can all agree on the common ground that our planet is slowly approaching an impending doom and if we don’t all start taking responsibilities for this, there won’t be a place we call home anymore!
An eye opening article for the climate change deniers. Good presentation of statistical data which makes it clear why today is the day to take actions.
