Game Over

It’s a bleak picture. The challenges we face are immense. It’s enough to make you want to give up.

But you mustn’t. We mustn’t. We all must keep fighting to try and solve these problems together.

We’ve faced similar global issues before, with the hole in the Ozone Layer or the Millennium Bug, and we worked together to fix them. Scientists worked to understand the threat they posed and found solutions. Politicians had the wisdom and courage to make policies to address the problems. Businesses invested in research and new technologies to reduce their impacts. And people everywhere made choices in the ways they lived their lives to reverse the damage.

The levels have got harder. The bosses have got bigger. But we have been here before and gained the XP.

It isn’t game over, it’s game on.
