What do we think about when we hear talk of climate change? Do we think of it as something that affects other parts of the world? Do we even consider how it affects each and every one of us, no matter where we live?

An article from National Geographic takes a detailed look at not only how we’re affected by climate change, but also how to live with the impact. For example, it might be obvious that greater access to clean water is a concern. However, what about solutions like refined sanitation and modern farming methods? These are innovations that will help us.
