Prepper for Climate Change

I believe there are a few basic reasons why I am a prepper. One of those is Climate Change.

I believe it is happening, it is primarily man made and that no government(s) will take meaningful steps to make meaningful changes that will slow down the inevitable effects from it.

I also included the impact of a nuclear attack or accident that will inevitably alter our environment.
