As early as the beginning of the nineteenth-century scientists suspected the greenhouse emission giving rise to change in the climate and fast track it to the twenty-first century we have world leader trying to deny its existence, but nonetheless it can’t stop scientists and humanitarians from trying to save the one thing we all thrive on, our mother earth.
And if this all wasn’t enough to draw your attention to the most imminent danger, there is this constant undermining of women in the field of science who have worked equally hard to try and understand the climate change and bring about a change.
