5) Climate

The most important issue in the world today is climate change.

According to experts we have to prevent the temperature rising by 1.5 °C before 2030.

If we manage to do that, we have a 50% chance of preventing a chain reacition that cannot be stoped  and will cause a mass extinction, a statistical flip of a coin.

There are things we can do to help in saving the planet.

Informing yourself on the problem is step one.
