  4. 4. Climate change is not real. 97% of researches say that climate change is happening and is caused by humans. Climate change happens somewhere else and does not concern us. The impacts of climate change are unpredictable. Finland is such a small country that it does not matter what we do. The impacts of a Finnish person are multiple compared to poorer countries. But climate change is good for Finland! Even though the worst impacts affect the southern countries first, climate change will affect everyone.
