We should be worried about climate change. And aware of the time scale.

Maybe that will get people's attention.
(Which happens to be about how many people are killed in violent crimes)
Climate change is an important problem, not an urgent problem. Waiting until it start to kill 20,000 Americans a year will be waiting far too long. Civilization will be collapsing not not afterwards.
Americans, being rich, are mostly protected against environmental issues that are lethal to non-Americans. Not completely, see the Camp Fire. And Americans are impacted by other's problems.
