The world’s biggest issues can cause a lot of sleepless nights, if only we begin to think about the things that are wrong, like poverty, world hunger, disease, global wars, climate change, and many others.

Today we are going to talk about climate change. Some people believe in it, some people don’t for some reason, but you can’t deny the changes that are happening in our ecosystem. We might only live to see a little bit of the changes, but one thing is for sure, our children and grandchildren will suffer the consequences.

Nowadays, more things are being said than done about this issue, we are seeing some people actively fighting to stop the pollution from the world’s biggest countries, and there might be some progress but definitely not enough. We are still seeing the Amazon forest getting caught down, factories still operating in full capacity with no filters, the north pole still continuing to melt…

Well, some people had had enough, and are taking these matters into their hands. In today’s world where people can more easily influence the masses, some influencers, and activists who have a wide audience decided to act and help with the issue of climate change.

We are going to talk about the Top Three influencers that dedicated their work and life to making this world a better place for the generations to come.
