And how we may have failed to stop it?

Having lived in a country where pollution is a HUGE issue (china) people should be worried and it is very very much real. Just living there for 2 years was enough for my eyes (and some of my family members) to become affected badly, and some days just being outside gave me a bad headache, made me feel sick, and my throat was almost always sore (until you just got used to the feeling). I even know someone who died recently of cancer which quite clearly was caused by the pollution, for a matter of fact cancer caused by pollution, more so specifically lung cancer is the leading cause of death in China. People who are saying global warming is a hoax don't know what they're are talking about. When you have experienced pollution in the level that I have you know how much it affects the environment and atmosphere, you can feel it, you can even fucking smell it, its contaminating the ground and food, heck once we were even told not to go outside because one factory had contaminated the rain clouds to the point that it was dangerous, just seeing all the smog in the air - global warming is not even a question, its a fact. The current human activity is heavily affecting the environment and the people themselves and its just amplifying the natural climate change, fucking the world over x10 more than it might've.2

I'm frightened only because humans won't do anything until we are at the brink of a serious disaster. We tend to be very reactionary like that.
Our best hope is to develop ways to live independent of Earth. Our species is tied to our planet so its fate is our fate at the moment.2
