What your grandmother saw

All the press and talk that’s been going around for the last few years on climate change may seem a bit overwhelming to most of us. People ask ‘Where can I see the effects of this?’. Well, these changes can be hard to see most of the time – it’s like watch grass grow. I’ve included a couple of links that will give you some perspective. The first one shows the changes in the Louisiana coastline from 1922 to 2014. The changes are dramatic and they are accelerating – not only in Louisiana and the rest of the Gulf Coast but on a planetary scale.

The second one is the latest report from the United Nations’ ‘International Panel on Climate Change’. These two reports will give you some idea of where we were and where we are going with climate change.

Think Global – Act Local!
