Jerry Brown the American politician is talking about how far we have progressed with regards to climate change.
He talks about how friendship, belief and other important human needs will speed up climate change. Jerry brown talks about how the world has changed in recent years for example oil and coal and how they were not even needed. Importantly the world has expanded and its population has too and this means a drastic increase in the strain upon resources. The world has a finite amount of resources but an infinite amount of wants and needs. Quite simply the world has changed and the ways we communicate have changed but with that each person now has a massive responsibility.
The very technology that is hailed such a brilliant thing is also what can damage the world by for example giving a loud and clear voice to anyone. Time itself is also against us as the people because it is also finite. People cannot wait for trump to decide he will make action. Moreover people themselves must inspire leaders and educate their fellow men and women about the true issues climate change is bringing.
