Anthony Giddens has a talent for presenting ideas succinctly. What he calls Giddens' Paradox

"states that, since the dangers posed by global warming aren't tangible, immediate or visible in the course of day to day life, however awesome they appear, many will sit on their hands and do nothing of a concrete nature about them. Yet waiting until they become visible and acute before taking serious action will, by definition, be too late."

Powerful images, such as in that animated GIF, will hopefully help make those dangers more visible and give them some emotional impact. Thanks for creating and sharing it!

Climate Change Consequences - animated GIF - lush forest giving way to parched, arid, dry, cracked earth with woman screaming - Giddens' Paradox

That's a powerful message, thanks.
