In November, record-breaking wildfires in Australia and California left hundreds homeless, record-breaking flooding in the UK, France and Italy and other parts of Europe left thousands more homeless. Unprecedented flooding in Central Africa left another million homeless along with the death of hundreds of people. Crippling droughts in Southern Africa and Australia will have left many more homeless. November 2019 was a month which will have changed the lives of millions of peoples forever and it took just 30 days to unfold. Extreme weather events are increasing dramatically, not year by year but month by month and yet, I have personally had to shut down the comment section on The Big Wobble because of people constantly posting abusive comments and claiming I am a liar, using vile words I wouldn't want to print here. Our climate is changing with every month new records are being broken, however, the number of people around the world who will passionately deny this is truly astonishing.
The recent onslaught of deadly heatwaves, unprecedented wildfires, devastating flooding, aberrant cyclones made more destructive by rising, warmer seas, crippeling droughts, devastated crops, massive deforestation, record-breaking ice melt on both poles and a 70% decline of wildlife, it is safe to say our planet is stressed out, leaving Sir David Attenborough last week to claim, "it is too late to stop climate change," we have crossed the point of no return, he went on to say, "our only hope is to slow climate change down somehow."
