    American media mogul and philanthropist, Ted Turner thinks that climate change is “probably the most serious, and in all fairness, the most complex problem humanity that has ever faced.”


    Here’s a non-exhaustive list of historic and current problems that most would consider worse than climate change:

    ·       Diseases (Cancer, AIDS, Malaria, Small Pox, the Bubonic Plague, etc.)

    ·       World War I and II (Hitler and Stalin)

    ·       The Holocaust

    ·       Genocide

    ·       Communism (which killed 100 million people)

    ·       World hunger

    ·       World poverty

    ·       Slavery

    ·       Tyranny

    ·       Religious persecution

    ·       Abortion

    ·       Terrorism
