Environment: Open-source against climate change

climate change

Scientists have been warning for decades about what can happen if nothing is done to reduce emissions and slow down climate change. On the other hand, all the governments of the different colors have turned a deaf ear, continuing the same or with too light environmental policies that did not change anything.

All the predictions that the scientists announced have come true, and now they have created a new report with really disastrous predictions to continue like this. Will they do something now? Well, it hurts to think that it will not be like that, but I think they will continue without listening to the experts ...

However, each of the citizens can also put your two cents, and between all try to emit and pollute less. From making better use of public transport, to walking or cycling, to using lower consumption equipment, and much more. In addition, you should know that there are many open-source projects that can help against climate change.
