Climate change, you and me change

I was talking with a couple of friends about the 2018 UN intergovernmental report on climate change.

I haven’t read it, but it’s sets out that major societal changes need to happen before 2028 to “save” us.

My friend said that it’s up to governments to change how things are done. And that that won’t change any time soon.

To me, that’s giving control to something outside of you, allowing you to make excuses for yourself, to take it easy on yourself.

It’s not a government that will decide for you the little ongoing things in life:

  • Whether to cool your water in the fridge, or just drink it straight
  • How long you’ll take a hot shower
  • If you feel like driving to work every day
