I know that global warming is affecting everyone on a daily basis...but I guess that's obvious when you live in Florida.
Last year's hurricane season was the most active ever recorded by man. The devastation and loss throughout the state was unimaginable to anyone that did not see it with their own eyes. Believe it or not, some people still do not have their roofs fixed or their homes rebuilt and - once again - we are faced with another year of hurricanes.
Already this year there have been three major hurricanes: one that hit the coast of Pensacola, Florida, another that hit Louisiana and Alabama and the third that hit Texas. And hurricane season isn't even halfway over! It lasts from June 1 - November 30.
I know that hurricanes were around long before global warming, but the frequency and severity we are now seeing is a direct result of climate change. It is the perfect example of how millions of lives have been affected by this problem. We, as a society, need to become more aware of our surroundings and the Earth. After all, every little bit helps.
