Climate change is causing the glaciers in Switzerland to melt. We must take action quickly to get a grasp on the warming up of the planet. According to Indian author Amitav Ghosh this is because we are incapable of imagining the possibility that our children will be forced to live in an uninhabitable world. Our endless desire for items such as automobiles, meat and luxury products form the greatest causes of the climate crisis. Ghosh says. 'We are like a turkey at Thanksgiving. We are being well stuffed but then one day the head will come off.'
