Is climate change really a problem?

Climate change...

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you see it?

Think about it.

We're very curious – reach out if you don’t mind sharing.

What if we told you it gives us hope for the future? *Get these dudes out of here*

There are many things in this world that cause stress. But it’s really important to be aware of what kind of stress.

There's distress and eustress (like ‘euphoria’)

Distress is the kind of stress that holds us back. That causes fear. That makes us feel as though climate change is an unstoppable force.

And then there is eustress. Eustress pushes us forward. It compels us to make change. It brings out the best in us.

It unifies us.

With climate change, eustress is the drive we feel when we recognize the opportunity to transform our world for the better.

From new jobs to smarter cities to cleaner skies, climate change presents the chance to reimagine the relationship between humans and the rest of the natural world.

It offers the opportunity to work with the other side of the aisle, border, or ocean. To come together for a common goal of building a beautiful, sustainable world. 

So with every stressor, we have a choice - is this a problem or an opportunity?

And all we're saying is… climate change is an opportunity.
