    Our life here on earth is temporary and we are currently on lease for the comfort we are having but that comfort is being compromised because of the lack of discipline of people towards waste management that cause harm to our environment and to the people as well, the negligence of duty towards protecting our environment and earth in general. If we abuse and fail to upheld its interest, the danger and risk will come back at us. Just like us humans. Our patience had enough if it exceeds its limit. Same goes to our surroundings if we keep on testing how long will it maintain sooner or later we will experience the consequences. So, It is up to the leaders of our community and around the world as well. To make the bigger actions because it’s a group effort and we need to help each other out to maintain our common interest. And that to live longer here on earth 🌎.

    What is the definition of 'climate emergency'? Words words words without a definition is meaningless. A few years ago in Australia the highest rating for fire warning was changed from 'extreme' (I think) to 'catastrophic'. This just put more 'meaning' to the issue and made people listen up. But what is 'climate emergency'?

    7.7bn people on the planet and growing yet marginally warmer summers is a well played sheeple.

    "'There was no study, there was just a press release," he said. "And it wasn’t 11,000 scientists, it was 11,000 random people who put their names on a web page. This was a total managed lie. There was no study. There were no scientists.".......................https://www.wnd.com/2019/11/11000-scientists-warning-climate-emergency-just-11000-random-people/?fbclid=IwAR06p-BzhSrOBZT0TMCYinkzgnXHUX6A8gNk6xIGzTXvXnT3xuup5VL5DIk
