These days something interesting happens: We can see what’s happening if the world faces a real crisis. A virus outbreak shuffles the world around—people can’t leave their homes anymore, people buy out stores, people live in fear, stock markets close as they fall apart within hours. History is being written right now:
Trading in US shares has been suspended as sharp falls led to an automatic halt in the selling and buying of stocks. —BBC News
But then, something is in my (and some other peoples’) minds. What about that bigger crisis that isn’t that tangible called climate change? This article in Der Spiegel tries to reveal the reasons but at the same time show why it’s not different to the virus outbreak situation.
Climate change will affect stock markets. Climate change will affect the availability of food and water. Climate change will affect whether we will still have a place to work.
