When we talk about climate change, we’re really talking about Carbon. We can’t save every river in Zimbabwe from its local sewage leak, but we can stop the polar caps from melting, seas from rising, and trees from burning. Carbon in the air is overwhelmingly (>80%) responsible for all of that.
Fun fact: Carbon stays in the air for 300–1000s of years. The Carbon emitted by your great grandfather’s factory is somewhere above you.
