On 2017 and against the will of many Americans and citizens from all the world, President Trump, a climate change denialist, decided to back up from the Paris climate change agreement aimed for the future benefit of humanity and led by the U.N. Climate change is not a matter of opinion but rather a fact supported by an international scientific consensus of 97%, being the N.A.S.A one of the many organizations supporting the evidence. Climate change denialism, rather than following any political ideas has to do more with the economic benefits provided by the powerful fuel energy industry. Although it is already quite late, we can change the path of global warming by switching from the use of fossil fuel energies to the use of clean energies such as solar, wind, tidal or geothermal power. My struggle for the past years has been to gather irrefutable evidence that proves climate change and specially to transmit a powerful message on the subject by showing the real victims of climate change; our children. For the past years I have witnessed them as the victims through, typhoons, tsunamis, droughts, floods and deforestation, all of the above having to do with global warming, and I believe that we did not inherit this planet for ourselves, but for the sake of all the future generations who will follow, we did not inherit this planet for a few to benefit, but to preserve it since as for now, the human species has nowhere else to go.
