I am thinking of making some donations each month, either to Climate Change (CC) related organizations or aid groups fighting Global Poverty (GP), or both. But I am bit unsure which way to go.
I think CC is a way more important cause, especially if we take a long-term view. If leave unchecked, it is not impossible that human civilizations may collapse because of CC, with tremendous suffering as a consequence. However, it seems to be a domain which already has a lot of attentions and money. So I am not sure if the little bit money I gave is really necessary or effective.
If I give money to GP, then I can be more certain that my contribution does help someone. However, all the improvements we may have gained may be wept out by CC in near future.
So what should I do? Which one should I choose? Or maybe half-and-half?
