Climate Crisis Part 7

Human mind has infinite capacity for imagination in most cases. One place where our imagination lacks is the idea of life after us. We can't imagine a world where we don't exist, we always want to go on living, may it be through our offspring or our legacy.

I think one of the challenge we face against actionizing to stop climate change is this inability of ours. We tend to think that there will always be a world where there will be humans. What we don't understand is that we need the earth, the climate to sustain us and not the other way around. Even if the temperature continues to rise and earth ceases to be a suitable living planet for humans, earth will exist, even some other living beings will exist. But humans, we will also be extinct just like many species are going extinct now.
