Climate change is real
‘If someone were to say there is no climate change, I could not accept this.’
Urge, farmer in Cherkos, Ethiopia.
For Urge and the members of his community in Cherkos, the time for debating whether there is a climate crisis is over.
The community of Cherkos and families like Urge’s, know first-hand the devastation that the climate crisis is causing. The impact on their rainy seasons has meant a shortage of food and lack of self-sufficiency which is frustrating.
As Urge says, ‘if a fire touches your feet, then it is your feet that burn. So if someone else were to say that your feet were not burning, this would be unacceptable.’
When the people on the frontline of the climate crisis tell us that their feet are burning, then we should listen.
