Ask a Rich Guy #FridayForFuture #ClimateStrike

It’s a long haul, but hang on.

By the time we see that climate change is really bad, your ability to fix it is extremely limited… The carbon gets up there, but the heating effect is delayed. And then the effect of that heat on the species and ecosystem is delayed. That means that even when you turn virtuous, things are actually going to get worse for quite a while.

Bill Gates

And the lady without the words:

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about something that gets worse and then gets better.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I wish everyone would start doing their bit already instead of denying facts.

      We just have to each do our little bit, and keep pushing the ones who can make maximum impact.

    I grew up with the idea of waste not, want not programmed into me. I do what I can but without everyone focusing on the planet’s health, I’m a mere drop in the bucket. A sad thought, but true.

    Sorry, nothing profound to add here, but I wanted to say that this is the first time I’ve actually agreed with Bill Gates. 😀

      I know, right? As my grandpa used to say, even a blind pig will find an acorn once in a while.
