In this project I made a story about someone very different from myself and how their life is effected by real climate change happening in the real world. In this post Zayn who lives in Australia with his parents talks about how his family rely on the Great Barrier Reef to live.
Climate From A New Perspective
For this project I chose a cause important to me and analyze how it is impacted by climate change. I decided to do mine on Utah's air quality. I teamed up with some of my other classmates since we all shared a similar interest, and we made an action plan to start some social media sites to get people aware.
Climate Action Plan
and here is out presentation
Walking into this class I thought it was going to be about all the things we should be doing to stop climate change, however, this class was much more than that. In this class we were shown where to find real climate information and we were shown climate change effects all over the world. Some of this information made me feel a little sad but then when you see that there are so many powerful world leaders not doing anything, it makes me feel really mad. I think to make people aware of climate change we need to show them how it effects them specifically. Typically people don't care about issues unless they affect them directly or they cost them money. If we can show people that the affects of climate change will cost them more than attempting to stop it now, we might finally see people willing to start changing their actions.
