Paulo Gervasio's curator insight, January 1, 2015 10:36 PM

Climate change is inevitable, the most man can do is to be neutral so we do not affect it one way or another. We can also study the changes better so we can be prepared.. The change will probably raise the sea level so coastal cities need to be prepared - at the same time, it will open up lands in the north for agriculture while turning some areas into deserts.
