Humanity has played a significant role in changing the climate of our little blue dot. The past few decades have seen our time in the naughty corner increase, with Mother Nature (and David Attenborough, among others) scolding us to get our act together. We see her wrath in rising temperatures, thunderous storms, bushfires, floods, and extreme climates. She’s mad, and we did this. We need to do better.
