This is the Most Important Investment to Stop Climate Change

 This is the Most Important Investment to Stop Climate Change Climate change is clearly one of the greatest threats in millennia. Massive numbers of species will go extinct, and many already have. Humans are exacerbating this issue, but we can also fix it and repair our aching planet. One investment, in particular, can make a huge difference, and it might not be what you'd have in mind.  What is this investment? The investment that we will discuss isn't renewable energy research or battery efficiency (although those are very important as well); we are talking about education. K-12 education along with higher education can spread awareness and teach students how to make a difference. Why it's important Investing in education helps students to become more knowledgeable on the subject of climate change. Many schools teach this subject, and secondary school courses such as AP Environmental Science  could be a reason why young people care about climate change and treating Earth

Other animal products are dependent on farming, so eliminating animal products entirely means that there is no need to rely on animals for food or household products. Health benefits Going vegan comes with a lot of health benefits. According to Healthline , plant-base
