In this short, helpful video, Vox explains one of the biggest misconceptions about climate change: The worry isn’t that the planet is doomed by the changing temperature. It’s that our species may be doomed.
It seems like common sense to say our planet will be just fine given everything it’s been through throughout its history, but saying we want to save ourselves may get further with the science deniers than saying we want to “save the environment.”
Hell, conservatives should love that argument. There’s nothing they love more than unborn children — and combatting climate change would save countless unborn children!
You’re welcome, world.
