Seamas It Ever Was 11h

This was a fun Q&A to do. It brought back some good memories of books I read as child.

4 reasons for using , not climate change: 1. It better conveys the extent of the problem 2. People don't say "So what? The climate's always breaking down" 3. It makes an implicit connection with the impact on our minds 4. It suggests that we can fix it.
