The theme of this story is that we got to move. The world around us is changing. We, as members of a particular society, have no other option but to adapt to and face changing conditions and beliefs. Take, for example, climate change that is likely to have a large impact on our lives in the decades to come. It is well-researched and commonly accepted that climate change is caused by exhaustion of natural resources like oil, gas and coal. However, not everyone agrees. There are leaders who dismiss the theory of man induced climate change as a delusion arguing that climate change has natural causes. Nevertheless, the world at large has to do something because species are endangered to extinction and some people already have to deal with life-threatening conditions such as flooding, forest fires, and water shortage. We got to move and we have to do this collectively with a common purpose. Otherwise, the problems caused by climate change will be beyond control in the future. In the process of adaptation, sacrifices have to be made to reduce our footprint. Not everyone is willing to pay this price making the process seemingly doomed from the start: too little, too late. So, what can we do to act appropriately?
