In America, that sentence could be read multiple ways:
- What is our cause?
- Why are we fighting for something?
- Why are we fighting with each other?
The cause is the health of the environment that supports life on earth.
We’re fighting for that because we’re examples of life on earth.
I don’t know the answer the the last question. Why ARE we fighting with each other over climate change?
- The climate is changing.
- It’s causing catastrophic events all over the world. If climate change isn’t actively causing the events, it’s intensifying them or causing/allowing them to happen more frequently.
- If human activity isn’t responsible for the majority of the change (which I think it is, but that ultimately doesn’t matter), human activity can certainly counter-act the damage that we (or whatever) are causing.
So why fight each other? Let’s work with each other and make things better for ourselves and all the other life on this planet!
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about people fighting over something.
