I believe that everyone knows that environmental problems exist, however, majority of the people don’t realize what is actually going on and the effect that these problems are causing the world. The importance of climate change and global warming are increasing everyday and it is very important people become educated on this topic. The issue of climate change and global warming are pushed under the rug in the United States, when it should be one of our top priorities because without biodiversity in our planet we have nothing. So many species are becoming endangered and extinct, the ice caps are melting and the sea levels are rising, and so much more is happening due to global warming. Scientists have dedicated their entire lives to studying how we affect climate and it has been proven we play a role in earth’s rising temperatures. This topic is very important but we see little to no discuss about it during the presidential debates from either of the candidates. Leonardo DiCaprio just came out with a documentary called Before the Flood which explores the topic of climate change, and discovers what must be done today to prevent catastrophic disruption of life on our planet. I highly recommend people watch this documentary and educate themselves on these important issues.
