Do you think climate change is already affecting us?en
You
Yes, there are studies that show changes in the last 30 years.en
Why in the last 30 years?en
Climate 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.en
That's interesting. I didn't know that. And what actually changed?en
Many things have been changing. Glaciers and ice caps are melting, and storms are becoming more intense.en
But is that really so bad?en
We don't really know. Humans have adapted to climate in agriculture and many other areas. Fast changes are difficult to adapt to.en
I'm not sure I understand. Can you give an example?en
For example, less rain and more droughts. Farmers will have to change what they produce because their old crops won't get enough water anymore.en
That 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.en
And that is just one example. That's why many people are scared.en
