Don't give in to the skeptics - climate change is real, and it really isn't something that should be taken lightly.
Have you ever watched A Day After Tomorrow? You know, that movie with Jake Gyllenhaal where the world almost ended because the Earth's climate state reached a point of no return? Well, despite the film's exaggerations, it still bears some insightful truths about climate change and its catastrophic potential.
Climate change has the power to cause an increase in the frequency of droughts, wildfires, hurricanes, extreme heat waves and precipitation, and other destructive weather events. Some studies even show that climate change could potentially cause an ice age under certain circumstances. In the next 25 years, many cities around the world will still be habitable, but a significant increase in average global temperature is expected to occur, and with that could come several of the aforementioned complications.
The New York Times came out with an article today that listed 9 cities around the world that people who are worried about climate change should live in. Among the list was Toronto, and they mentioned that its "developed infrastructure, financial system and public services [are] not likely to be affected by rising sea levels or water shortages."
The other cities that made the list include Detroit, Chicago, Madison (Wisconsin), San Francisco (surprisingly), Boise (Idaho), New York City, and State College (Pennsylvania).
