If there is doubt about the devastating effects of climate change, the pictures of the aftermath of Cyclone Eloise coming out of Beira in Mozambique are a sobering reminder.
The next pandemic that will be not be stopped by closing borders, social distancing and sanitisers is climate change.
We can turn a blind eye to what is happening in Mozambique as something does not affect us, like we did with Wuhan, in China, soon the cyclones will spread to other parts of the world and then we will be dealing with an unstoppable pandemic.
Let’s learn from the mistakes of the coronavirus pandemic and not repeat them.
Let’s start by making the necessary changes now regarding climate change before it is too late.
If we do nothing, we will have another crisis in 10 years time.
Let’s change before we have to.
