23 Reasons We Need To Stop Freaking Out Over Climate Change

    We only have about 12 years before the changes become irreversible, but who's counting?

    1. First of all, there's pretty much no proof that our icebergs are melting.

    2. Like, literally none at all.

    3. And even if there was, they can't ALL melt, right?

    Climate change could melt most of the ice in the Alps by 2100 https://t.co/I31Rk0I0Vs

    According to the New York Post, a recent study found that half of the ice in the 4,000 Alpine mountain glaciers will have disappeared by 2050 due to a combination of rising temperatures and past pollution, and two thirds will have melted by 2100.

    4. It's fine though, the polar bears are still having a pretty good time.

    5. Plus, how about our pristine beaches?

    6. And the happy sea creatures that live in our oceans?

    7. Our coral reefs are still super gorgeous.

    8. But still, they should hold up for awhile.

    9. We still have SO many trees around. It's not like we can lose ALL of them to deforestation...

    Heard about the #10YearChallenge? This is the one we all need to care about. Forests help to mitigate climate change and provides homes for many species of plants and animals. Every year 46-58 thousand square miles of forest are lost to deforestation.

    Deforestation is the second leading cause of climate change, but who's counting?

    10. Or wildfires...

    11. Or droughts...

    12. But those droughts are nothing a little flooding can't fix!

    13. Really, our trees are fine.

    14. And frankly, so are our animals and insects.

    15. No one's going extinct on our watch!!!

    16. I mean, how can climate change really affect us superior humans??

    17. It's not like any of these things could cost us money in the long run.

    18. And even if they did, our economies are still thriving!!

    19. We still have plenty of food.

    20. Look at those thriving crops!

    21. And everyone still has easy access to water.

    22. And we still have our health.

    23. We're totally fine, guys!!!

    So yeah, I think we can all take a chill pill and stop worrying so much about climate change. It's really not a big deal.

    In the meantime, let's all take a minute to learn more about climate change, what it means for us as a society, and how we can make a difference.

    Stay cool out there, friends.
