There is debate in the political sphere regarding the level at which climate change will have an impact on the earth. In the scientific community there is little debate, but this thought does not necessarily trickle down to the average layperson. Many believe that this disconnect is due to misinformation campaigns through the late 1990s. Climate change is a vast social and health issue that affects communities all over the world differently. Different areas of the world with varied resources and support will fare differently as climate change continues to change the land, making climate change a social justice concern. However, it is possible to improve climate change by focusing resources on human behavior, psychology, and sustainability.
