It is so important that we preserve the environment for future generations, and that we teach kids about living a sustainable life. Climate change has a direct impact on our quality of life and health, and we are starting to see the impacts of it today. According to the United Nations, climate change has already caused droughts, more severe storms, rising ocean levels, food shortages, disease, hotter temperatures, and poverty.
