  1. When, specifically, do the oceans start rising enough to flood coastal cities? It is hard to get serious about climate change when the ocean appears to have remained the same. Are we sure the oceans will overtake coastal cities?

  2. This article gave me hope as well. I think that with the rise in overall temperature, more and more people feel the consequences of climate change, and they start to realize the importance of the issue. I personally have encountered more conversations about climate change recently, both among peers and from clubs/organizations on campus. Many people are talking about the lack of snow this winter as well as days where it doesn’t even feel like winter. We are living the consequences of our own actions, and people are starting to notice. Awareness definitely does not translate directly to public policies, but I think as more activists call for action and more large companies pledge for carbon neutrality, there will be more influence on policymakers. In other words, the more people in power voice their concerns, the more likely others will take action.
