In an ever-changing world where as humans, we are expanding exponentially and creating more and more infrastructure to support this growth, it is important to preserve the world we live in. This, combined with the rise of consumerism creates a dangerous cocktail of destruction for what’s left of the natural world.
Mass production of goods and sprawling metropolis’s is having a detrimental effect on planet Earth, something that is on the verge of becoming irreversible. Climate change is a major sign that the world we live in is changing and changing right before our eyes. Even in the UK where summers typically consist of one hot week in mid-July, temperatures have soared in 2018.
