The effect of Climate Change on current civilization.

Current technology, and fuel based on carbon and oil is driving the world towards disaster.
Frozen Methane could be liberated if a temperature change of 5 to 6 celsius degrees is reached in the following 10 to 100 years.
Drastic but feasible measures are at reach, counting with global organizations and the countries that generate more carbon or oil usage.

Im not just talking bout climate change im talking about all the things that keep people in this planet in a perpetual state of panic blinding them from the benefit of optimism and the wisdom to find the good or at least the silver lining in things.
