deDo you think climate change is already affecting us?
deYes, there are studies that show changes in the last 30 years.
deWhy in the last 30 years?
deClimate is defined as a period of at least 30 years. So, to be able to look at changes, we have to look at the last 30 years.
deThat's interesting. I didn't know that. And what actually changed?
deMany things have been changing. Glaciers and ice caps are melting, and storms are becoming more intense.
deBut is that really so bad?
deWe don't really know. Humans have adapted to climate in agriculture and many other areas. Fast changes are difficult to adapt to.
deI'm not sure I understand. Can you give an example?
deFor example, less rain and more droughts. Farmers will have to change what they produce because their old crops won't get enough water anymore.
deThat makes sense. My uncle is a corn farmer and highly specialized. I don't think he could just change his whole farm without losing a lot of money.
deAnd that is just one example. That's why many people are scared.
