          @grace_njeri_804 It is indeed disheartening when those entrusted with safeguarding the well-being of society prioritize actions that go against the greater good.

                      Climate change is a pressing issue that requires urgent action from politicians. Delaying climate action not only jeopardizes the well-being of current and future generations but also intensifies the consequences of climate change. Failure to mitigate will result in severe environmental, economic, and social consequences that will be difficult to reverse.
