About the Book
Many influential figures have tricked society into thinking that our planet is doing well; into thinking that our planet is healthy. They are encouraging ignorance; we are living a lie.
We have all heard the phrase "Climate change is a hoax." "It is nothing to be concerned about." That is not the case. Climate change is real. It is as real as anything gets, and has been damaging our planet for many years. Throughout this book I am going to explain to you why this is the case, and how we can fix it.
I am not purely going to focus on the environmental standpoint and disregard every other perspective of this issue. Instead, I will present my findings from an environmental, economic and political point of view, so that you, the reader, can fully understand this dire situation and uncover the truth about our world.
*Please note that this version of 'The Truth about our world' is a work in progress. There will be mistakes in the writing and some things that need to be fixed, but I am releasing a version of the book now for the reason that climate change is an issue that needs immediate attention, so why wait to create some awareness for it. In addition to this, by getting others to read it, they will pick up on the mistakes that I have missed while proofreading it myself, which will allow me to improve the quality of this book. The changes will include citation, further editing and proofreading. I hope you enjoy the book. *
About the Author
My name is Oscar Alateras and I am currently a Year 9 student. From an extremely young age, I have always had a passion running deep in my veins to make a positive difference to this world. Now throughout the years, the exact topic that my passion has been directed to has varied. But one day in year 7, something happened that changed that; and I found my true passion that has stayed with me ever since that day and never left my side.
My class was shown a documentary made by Leonardo Di Caprio about climate change. It revealed to me the truth about our world that media and politicians have been trying to hide for quite some time. After seeing that such a famous person like Di Caprio cared about the issue of climate change, and took the time out of his busy life to make a documentary about it, really showed me that this issue is important. Not only that, it also illustrated that climate change is a global issue that needs immediate attention. From that day forward, I began studying the topic and learning more about it so that when I graduate university, I would be ready to tackle this issue head on and really make a difference. But at the beginning of 2018, I realised something - why wait until after university to make a difference. We are never too young to change our world for the better.
That was when I decided to start this project to write a book about climate change. The first step in solving an issue is to make sure that everyone is aware of it. This is exactly what I want to do through this book. I want to create awareness for climate change and show to you, the reader, the truth about our world.
