Much time and energy has been put in by many of the world’s top countries to attempt to stop the atmosphere from getting worse, and to keep the Earth as healthy as possible so that we as a species can continue to thrive.

If you’ve ripped up a piece of paper, you don’t try in vain to continue writing on it; you go and get a new piece of paper to start anew on. It’s exactly the common sense that needs to be used.
