Comments Off on Why You Should Personally Give a Damn About Climate Change

A world devastated by climate change is like a night where The Day After Tomorrow, Planet of the Apes, and A Clockwork Orange turn on some Marvin Gaye , burn some incense, and hit the bed to breed a mega dystopia. A lot of people know about the dangers of fossil fuels, the importance of recycling, and why it’s healthier to be a vegetarian, but everyone asks “how does climate change affect me ?” Let’s put it this way: with the amount of change we’re gonna see, your children won’t be playing outside much, you probably won’t be eating sushi three times a week anymore, and Game of Thrones’ North of the Wall will quickly become a reality.

First an 18 foot oarfish appeared off the coast of California , followed five days later by a second sea serpent , and now a super-rare “saber-toothed” whale has washed ashore on Venice Beach near Los Angeles. The 2,000 pound creature also known as a Stejneger’s beaked whale is extremely rare and usually only found in the deep waters of Alaska. Even though the animal was covered in shark bites, it was still alive when rescuers initially found it, and a brief examination showed no other signs of trauma or disease.
