Why Should You Stop Ignoring Climate Change?
Alert: we must stop global warming and bring down global average temperatures as soon as possible to avoid natural disasters and catastrophes everywhere on this planet, including the Arctic region.
The more we burn fossil fuels and release toxins into our regional and global environments, the worse the situation gets: the global mean average temperature increases more and more, especially damaging the more forests and nature we burn down.
Extensive droughts around the world and other extreme weather events are the result of anthropogenic climate change whereby the harmful actions carried out by human beings around our globe are leading to these phenomena.
A number of research and sources indicate that unless action is taken NOW to lower and to bring down the global average temperatures, we are running out of time to save our environment and the home planet we live in.
This is also the true purpose behind the Paris Agreement which was signed by almost all countries worldwide in Paris in December 2015. The very same agreement that current US President Donald Trump resigned from, because he is too short-sighted and ignorant to see and to understand environmental contexts, issues and well-being.
It is about time that the far-spread ignorance and stupidity among people on this planet ends. We cannot lose or waste any more time to turn the sheets towards a healthier planet, where our environment is appreciated and being taken seriously in terms of all life on Earth.
If we continue damaging our home planet at this rate, we may have to face extremely serious consequences within only ten years, or within the upcoming decades.
The seriousness of our environmental well-being is the reason why I continue to inform and educate people around the world on this topic, a cause that I have worked for since many years now.
Open your eyes, learn, and see what happens to our environment around the world. Stop ignoring the hard facts and truth.

Paris Agreement Aims To Strengthen Global Response To The Threat of Climate Change
Have you taken the time to ponder upon what YOU can do to prevent/stop human-caused climate change? As a suggestion, take the time to research the topic, e.g. starting by learning what the Paris Agreement says.
An excerpt from The Paris Agreement 2015/Art. 2: “Aims to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change, in the context of sustainable development and efforts to eradicate poverty.” (UN 2015. Adoption of the Paris Agreement).
A few days ago, I spent two hours talking to a 78-year-old Lady & her husband (80+) at their Summer cottage. Both of them hardly had any wrinkles. She said, they spend all Summer in nature. In Winter, she goes ice swimming regularly and she uses FINNISH HONEY every single day, both applied on her skin & inwards.
We also spoke about CLIMATE CHANGE. She said, recently you can no more find FINNISH HONEY in the stores. There are no bees. Even their cottage neighbor, who keeps bees, has lost them! This is not only a Finnish problem. It is a GLOBAL problem.
Bees, and other insects important to our global environmental ecosystems, are disappearing. If not already, please do hear the alarm bells. If we humans cause extinction of species important to our global ecosystem, we will ultimately destroy ourselves. It has long been urgent to rethink our ways of living and consuming. If not already, do take action in your personal AND professional life.
Missing bees: The Mysterious Case of Colony Collapse Disorder
A year ago, in May 2016, after years of climate activity and months of reflection, Global Climate Change Think & Act Tank was born. What started out partly from a willingness to learn more about climate change, but foremost out of a deep concern for our global environments, the nature, and sustainability in general, has now become an active (social media) movement involving professionals and people from all kinds of industries across our world.
Climate change, environmental protection, and sustainable economic development are core factors affecting businesses, corporations, organizations, individuals, and thus societies holistically. In today´s world, none of us can afford ignoring climate leadership as a core value, and as a long-term competitive advantage, as well as an investment, in business practices across industries AND in our personal lives. Instead of denying the truth about the long-term negative effects caused by human behavior and unsustainable ways of conducting business/living our lives, we must embrace change not only in business practices, but in our everyday lives. Holistically. We already know HOW to do it. It is only a question about a willingness to embrace positive change, improve our ways of consuming, living, and conducting business. Of course, inter/national climate policies and regulations do have a significant impact, whereby local/global politics plays a significant role. Although, at the core of climate leadership, societies consists of smart individuals – the driving force to all change.
Climate leadership and taking responsibility for our environment belongs to EVERYONE. No individual can outsource his/her personal responsibility, wherefore we are all responsible for taking action and committing to changing our societies into sustainable places to live, now and in the future.
97 % of all scientists agree upon the fact that climate change, as it occurs in today´s world, is caused by us human beings. According to NASA – Global Climate Change – Vital Signs of the Planet, the evidence for this is fact-based and relevant. The (future) consequences of human caused climate change are yet partly unknown, although climate change in today´s world has already caused: sea level rise, global temperature rise, warming oceans, shrinking ice sheets, declining Arctic sea ice, glacial retreats, extreme events, ocean acidification, and decreased snow cover – to mention a few! How these changes affect life upon Earth, unless we take action and implement necessary changes, is to some extent yet a question mark.
According to The UN Migration Agency and based upon climate research, the number of climate refugees could rise up to 200 million by 2050. As per today, the UN Refugee Agency estimates that more than 22.5 million people have been displaced due to climate and/or weather-related events in the past decade. And, the number is continuously growing. Without hesitation, these are unsustainable facts and numbers.

Climate leadership, including the necessity to act upon climate change and driving change that concerns all of humanity, must be taken seriously by everyone. It is not enough to have local/regional/national/global policies and regulations . Businesses, creating innovative solutions, are the true sustainability ambassadors, together with aware consumers/individuals.
