He really lays is out simply:
- Climate change is happening 10,000 times faster than it has in the past.
When you think about it, it makes sense that change would be happening so quickly when we have over 7 billion people to account for. It makes you wonder how soon we will hit a point of no return? When climate change happens so quickly that nothing will be able to adapt and survive?
This is another reason why urban naturalization is so important. Not only can it affect us directly in the small picture of improving our local environments and cities, but taking action will also help change the big picture as well. Every effort counts.
I give props to Nye for realizing that he can still make a difference in this matter through the avenue he's always had a niche in -- Film. Kickstarter has provided him with an outlet to reach thousands of people he influenced over his career. People just like me who are concerned about where our world is heading. As of this posting, his campaign to create a documentary to change the world is fully funded and is currently the most successfully funded kickstarter documentary.
There is just shy of 3 days left to continue raising funds, and if you are interested in seeing what else this project is all about, head over to his page and check it out:
