What Impact Will Climate-Influenced Video Games Have on Environmental Efforts? | ecogreenlove

Climate change is happening rapidly, and the only way to prevent further damage is to start working now. Still, many people don’t think the climate crisis is a big deal. They may not have been exposed to the right information and may not go looking for it. The only way some people will ever hear about what’s happening to the world is through the media they consume.

When pushing for efforts against climate change, you shouldn’t count out the power of media that can change people’s minds. The video game industry in the United States is worth almost $100 billion, a staggering number that will only increase over time. The right video games can expose problems to the general population, who may not have known about the issues before.

Making Sense of Nutritional Supplements and Natural Remedies | ecogreenlove

Supplementing your diet can be a great way to improve your overall health. Supplements like B12 can also help vegans live healthy lifestyles that are better for the planet. Taking an oral vitamin spray or drinking a nutritious smoothie is also cost- and time-efficient, as replacement meals usually take seconds to prepare and cost a fraction of the price of “real” food.

However, it’s easy to get confused when learning about supplements and natural remedies. Unclear labeling can disguise unhealthy ingredients, and branded packaging makes it easy to fall foul of greenwashing. Making sense of nutritional supplements requires a healthy dose of skepticism and an eye for disingenuous marketing materials.

Climate Change Vulnerability and Global Health Disparities

Climate Change Vulnerability and Global Health Disparities | ecogreenlove

According to hundreds of thousands of scientists, research bodies, and global indicators, our climate is changing at a rapid rate. It is something that many of us have a hard time seeing in our day-to-day lives. Something that many of us chalk up to a freak event, a strange spring, or just a result of essential development.

However, many of the negative impacts that we see are at least partially the result of climatic changes. Wildfire season may be normal, but the size and scale of the fires are influenced in part by a hotter climate. Likewise, it may be normal to have the occasional wet spring but some of those torrential downpours were fueled by more water evaporating off the ocean.

The land and environmental impacts are not the only tolls of climate change though. The individual health of people is also altered by the climatic conditions we live in. And not all people are subject to the same living conditions, meaning that certain populations are most certainly going to be more negatively impacted by climate change than others.
