It is really, really bad already.
You have to see it for yourself to believe it, to understand it.
Reading about it or watching arguments about it on the news will not give you even a glimpse of how bad it is.
Most of us do not have the ability to travel the world and see what is really going on, especially where it is deliberately covered up from public scrutiny.
Fortunately, someone with the necessary resources and access, can do that for us.
Join Leonardo DiCaprio (yes, the actor) as he explores the topic of climate change, and discovers what must be done today to prevent catastrophic disruption of life on our planet.
He went all over the place, and met everyone.
What you will see, is startling. Here are some screenshots from the documentary:
And now, you can watch the whole documentary free, here:

Watch Before the Flood for Free, Everywhere | Before the Flood
Once you have watched that movie, you begin to realize how grave the situation is.
Even just looking at simple photos and satellite imagery shows you how bad it is.
For example, the deserts around the world are expanding rapidly:
For example, today already, the State of California is experiencing the worst draught ever. See:
The alarming thing for the US is that California produces 60% to 99% of the fruits, vegetables and nuts in the US, depending on which crop you are looking at. It also produces a sizable amount of its meat and milk.
In total, it produces up to 15% of all US agriculture.
Technology cannot keep up the replacement rate of loss due to desertification.
If, in the near or medium term future, we lose California and other parts of the country’s agriculture, it posses a Food Security Risk for the nation, especially if imports become scarce as other countries face shortages of their own.
The same story is happening today already in Africa, parts of Europe such as Spain, and parts of Asia such as India.
And the trends is worsening.
But food and water shortage is not the only problem.
Far from it.
Worst-case scenario, if we let the environment cross a point of no return (if we haven’t already reached there today), worst-case scenario is mass loss of human lives on all continents, up to a quarter of the world’s population dying, from these factors:
- Increased global desertification and draught, leading to…
- Global fresh water shortages…
- Both leading to famine worldwide…
- Combined with extreme heat in summers (hotter than people can stand) and extreme cold in winters (colder than people can stand)
- Even faster loss of plants and animals, entire species
- And not having the energy or technology to solve these problems
The worst_case scenario is terrifying, and it would take generations upon generations to sort out.
It would, at the very least, change human society and consciousness.
Because when you lose what you need to live, you realize how precious it is.
It’s loss is a massive blow on so many levels. Yet, its loss is a wake up call.
