Of course, we in Shropshire may not directly cause the results of global warming. So we may well “zone out” when people tell us that disaster will result.

But we are all part of a worldwide population that is causing the problems, and we should directly take action to avoid the effects of global warming.

Take a look at this picture from the fires in California in 2020.
