This video is about how mundane experiences will be different in a warmer world. You may already be aware that things like wildfires and droughts will become more common, but everyday experiences will also change. Food will taste different, tropical diseases will become more common, and the world will smell different. To us on the land and to creatures in the sea. This in itself is a problem, but its nothing compared to the biological implications of these changes.

This one’s really depressing, sorry.
