Flat-Earthers were people who thought the earth was flat when the scientists were saying it was round.
The scientific evidence is over whelming, the impact on the earth is increasing exponentially. Some of the damage already done is irreversible, however we have the ability to stop major damage now. To confirm Sir David Attenborough says we have the evidence, the people want change and now it is up to the governments of the world to get their act together. We are running out of fossil fuel! Simple! We need sustainable energy sources now!
The changes throughout the world are ever increasingly obvious- from the melting of polar caps, glaciers and permafrost. Alterations to ocean currents, temperature, acidity and sea levels. Volatile and erratic weather patterns- drought, storm etc. The list goes on. The effect on the physical planet as well as every species on earth will be affected. The reproductive circles and migratory habits of insects to bears are all over the place. And we are not immune!
