Personally I find the subject of climate change hard to engage with. We hear of it, we know it exists, but it seems to be portrayed by the media as a hot topic that is in one day and out the next. As climate change isn't impacting us directly, I fear that it's a problem many assume can be dealt with in the future. But the reality is, when the consequences of our actions do appear on our doorstep, it will be too late.
I often find that when I talk to people about climate change, they want to do something to help, but don't know what it is they should be doing. I've supported the work of the WWF through donation for over a year now and find their website and social networks incredibly useful to find all the information I need.
So for all of you interested in this subject, I urge you to head over in their direction.

The reality is, a huge change needs to happen and it isn't the people in power that can make that change, it's us, the majority. Even the smallest of actions can make a huge change difference, whether that's choosing to cycle to work instead of driving or switching your light bulbs to energy efficient bulbs. Remember, that it only takes a grain a rice to tip the scales and you mon amie could be that little grain of rice!
