In short, how climate change affects us. In the first place it is necessary to clarify two concepts that, although closely related, are often mistakenly taken as synonyms: climate change and global warming. There is an important difference, and that is that global warming is the cause of climate change, that is, the increase in the temperature of the planet caused by emissions to the atmosphere of greenhouse gases derived from the activity of the human being, are causing variations in climate that would not naturally occur. The Earth has already warmed and cooled on other occasions in a natural way, but the truth is that these cycles have always been much slower, needing millions of years, while now and as a result of human activity, we are reaching levels that in other times they brought extinctions in barely two hundred years. Before delving into the detail of its causes and consequences, we’ll tell you why you do not care about climate change …
